Recommends Carnival Triumph? Yes!

Ship Quality
Great night life! The shows and dining room were awesome. Daytime activities were lacking. The guys in our group found themselves wandering aimlessly for much of the day. The deck was crowded, we could never find space during the day. Terriibly crowded! Only 2 small pools for thousands of people.
Cabin / Stateroom
Food and Dining
We went to the formal dining room every night. This was our favorite part! The wait staff was great, and the food was top notch!!!
Service and Staff
Cozumel, Mexico
We went to Playa Mia beach here which was really fun. FREE drinks (for once) and free water trampoline, pedal boats, etc. Of all the islands, we had the best time here.
George Town, Grand Cayman
We really liked Grand Cayman. The prices for food, etc. were pretty expensive. We spetn $155 USD at Jimmy Buffet's on a few drinks and appetizers - ouch! For $4 per person taxi vans will take you to a public beach, which was nice.
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
We did the zip line, Bob sled, air lift excursion. It was fun! The workers were great, and the place was really clean. It says the excursion takes 4 hours, and it only took about 1 so we had time to do Dunn's River Falls. The falls are really neat, but BEWARE of the shop keepers there. They are INCREDIBLY persistent, and even rude. They left us with a bad imression of Jamaica.
