Review SummaryThe Triumph was in very good shape. I noticed when in ports while people are off the boat, the crew of Triumph are painting, shampooing carpets, cleaning outside windows and balconies, etc. They kept Triumph is very good shape.
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
Mr. Putu was perfect in cleaning the room in the morning, and doing turndown in the evening. The bathroom was cleaned twice a day, towels were changed out, and everytime he saw me in the passageway, he would call me by name and ask me how we were doing. My son thought he was the coolest.
Very special thanks go out to Yipin in the Casino and to Valentin, our head waiter. Unfortunately, I don't have enough room on here to comment on both of these people, but they were superb!
Other than that, the ship remained clean and decorative. Artwork adorns the walls of public areas as well as in the cabins. (Some of it quite expensive!) I also learned that every night, all the hot tubs and swimming pools are completely drained, scrubbed, wiped down, and refilled. This can make for some cold water in the swimming pools early in the morning, but the hot tubs heat up pretty quick.
Cabin / Stateroom
Because we had a suite, the bathroom had a jetted jacuzzi tub. Not recommended for 270 pound men. It is a tight fit. We were on the Empress Deck (Deck 7) forward of amidships. Good location to be!
Pros: The crew of the Triumph went out of their way to make sure I was happy
Cons: Progreso Mexico and the Elevators on the Triumph
