Review Summary

This was a good choice for spring break with alot of same aged children traveling

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Enjoyed every aspect of the dining options

Entertainment

3 out of 5
Comedy shows were OK...Having family comedy is probably necessary but parents didn't control their kids at these shows

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
Again, mislead by <img class='agent-replacement' src='/images/hideagent.png'> rep. Was told that if our 13 y/old went to CO2 with the older kids, he'd be allowed. Not the case and made us look bad with our youngest since we were told it would be OK

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The entire ship staff was fun and willing to do whatever it took to make us happy

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Older ship but well kept. Basketball area was down most of the week

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Was promised that the divider on our rooms could be removed to creat one balcony by <img class='agent-replacement' src='/images/hideagent.png'> rep...ship folks told us NO

Ports Of Call

Progreso (Merida), Mexico

3 out of 5
Boring stop with long lines to get downtown
Don't Miss: Duty free shopping was nice by the ship

Cozumel, Mexico

3 out of 5
Good excursions on paper but the swim with dolphins was very unorganized
Don't Miss: Three Amigos

Pros: Service by the staff was outstanding

Cons: Meridia/Proressive, Mexico was boring

Recommends Carnival Triumph? Yes!
