Carnival Triumph - June 2010

Sail Date: June 21, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship is large and clean. The food is really well prepared, but there is a distinct lack of berries and assortment of fruit. (Just mainly bannana, apples, oranges and melons). Basketball court is small and the mini golf court has seen better days. There is a section of the ship that was reserved for ping pong and water ballons that was rarely used (waste of space). It is really hard for an injured person to get around on the boat.

Pros: Dinner service

Cons: Guest Service center

Recommends Carnival Triumph? Yes!

Children's Programs
The teen club - 15+ was lacking in activities that weren't lame (according to my son).
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
I liked the bands.
Service and Staff
The irons were dirty and stained my husband's shirt. We had a lot of hassel getting it washed for the dinner that night. This is unacceptable when you are not allowed to bring your own iron on board.
Cozumel, Mexico
Beaches are a taxi ride away. Eat before you get off the ship or you will be paying a premium for food. Once you take a taxi out you can "agree" to a price to get you around the island. Don't miss downtown for shopping - the port shopping is expensive. But becareful - shirts shrink and everyone's mother or family made that!
Progreso (Merida), Mexico
Water was dirty. Smelled funny and felt funny - like there were chemicals in the water. You get mobbed going to the beach and as soon as you sit down to buy stuff. Good for shopping but not good for relaxing.
