A Great experience in Rough Waters

Sail Date: October 15, 2011

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We had an amazing first cruise riding on the Triumph. The seas were rough and a few in our party got sick, but the crew handled the situation like pros. Our Steward Katut was awesome, as well as our dining staff. The food and experience was amazing.

Pros: Loved the Shoppin Talks that guided our Cozumel Shopping experience and great service in the rooms!

Cons: Rough Waters

Recommends Carnival Triumph? Yes!

Ship Quality
Elevators seemed to be broken alot, and blow dryer in room kept stopping. The crew was quick to fix things, but maybe some updating is in need.
Cabin / Stateroom
The bed was a bit hard - we didn't sleep real well the whole trip. The bathroom was a bit outdated.
Shows were canceled due to the rough seas, which we understood. We just wish there was a bit more during sea days, especially the last day.
Food and Dining
Food variety and quality was very good.
Service and Staff
Loved our Steward Katut and the dining staff.
Progreso (Merida), Mexico
Next time we would do the Mayan Ruin tour, staying in the local city was not that fun, as people were constantly hounding you to buy things, it got so bad - we just went back to the ship.
Don't Miss: Mayan Ruins - We missed it!
Cozumel, Mexico
Enjoyed the shopping here. Our friends found an intimate beach and said it was awesome. By this time we were just tired of being constantly barked at to buy things from all the shops.
Don't Miss: Shopping
