Meh. Some good, some not so much.
Carnival Triumph Cruise Review to Caribbean - Western
Sail Date: September 17, 2011
Ship: Carnival Triumph
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 6 years ago
To be fair, this was the last cruise on the Triumph before it went into dry dock. So the deck had no varnish, the bathrooms smelled, and I think the crew was ready for their own vacation, so the overall service was lackluster. Smoking was rampant everywhere. Smoking rules were not enforced. The hallways were filled with cig and pot smoke. My cruise mates left much to be desired; ignoring the dress code (bare-chested and barefoot in several venues), being brought on board in a wheelchair because they were passed out from partying too hardy on shore, generally drunk and obnoxious, etc.

Don't Miss: Mayan ruins.
Don't Miss: I did the Twister boat trip to Isla Pasion. Woo hoo!
Pros: Chef's Table. Exquisite. Foodie heaven and spectacular service!
Cons: Bathroom smelled like a sewer. Mediocre service. Not my favorite kind of cruise mate (chain-smoking redneck party animals).
