Carnival Triumph

May 2015 - Carnival Triumph to Caribbean - Western

Good cruise, but noisy

We were told that the Triumph was an old ship, but it was in very good shape and didn't appear that old to me. Our main problem was the noise from the passageway outside our cabin.  Sound seemed to travel through the door very well. The older type TV set was a bit of a disappointment too, with some channels coming in very dark and hard to make out. The layout of our cabin was outstanding! The best we've ever seen. Very nice bathroom setup. It was a bit difficult to find our way around the ship at first, but after a day or two we settled in. The food at the buffet was good, but why did they close it at 3:30 PM? People were just arriving from tours and just as they hit the buffet, it closed. We are buffet folks and enjoy the buffet.

We have cruised on several different lines and this was my first on Carnival. It was not a bad cruise. In fact, we have never had a bad cruise. We really enjoy the newer Royal Caribbean ships with the center promenade the pretty much runs the length of the ship.

This is a perfect cruise for younger folks. It is reasonably priced, and there's lots for them to do. We enjoyed watching them have a good time.

The tour to the Uxmal Mayan ruins was outstanding. We had a great guide and really enjoyed it. The beach "photographic" tour on Cozumel was only so-so.

Navigator of the Seas

January 2015 - Navigator of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

Very Nice

We enjoyed our cruise very much.  Our room porter Ronald Holt was wonderful and very considerate and took care of our needs very well.

The food was the best that we have ever had on a cruise and we enjoyed the fact that the buffet was never crowded.

This was the first big ship we went on and found it easy to move around and never too crowded.

We have already booked our cruise for next year on the Liberty out of Galveston, Texas.

Thank you for a wonderful vacation.
