A wonderful time for a first-time cruise

Sail Date: October 15, 2011

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

The Triumph offers a perfect blend of scheduled activities and down-time. My best friend and I were both taking our first cruise and we thoroughly enjoyed the shows, the food choices, and the pool area. Our favorite memories are of the employees who truly catered to us each and every day, making us feel special.

Pros: Every cruise employee made us feel special.

Cons: The elevators were a hit or miss. We took lots of stairs!

Recommends Carnival Triumph? Yes!

Ship Quality
The ship remained clean throughout our cruise. We rarely saw unattended dishes, towels, etc.
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
What more can I say?
Varieties for all ages.
Progreso (Merida), Mexico
We didn't really have much time in this port. We were able to walk the beach, and our most repeated line was "No thank you" to the vendors who continually try to sell you something.
Cozumel, Mexico
Our snorkeling excursion was canceled due to rough weather. We hired our taxi driver to take us around the island. I would recommend this to all first-timers, because we were on our own schedule. We stopped when we wanted and stayed for as long as we chose at each location.
Don't Miss: The release of the baby sea turtles! We were able to help release them to the ocean. It was truly awe-inspiring.
