Just Alright

Sail Date: February 27, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

The ship had the constant smell of garbage. It is well maintained for a ship 10 years plus old.The beds were configured wrong, but i ran into this on the last 4 cruises on Celebrity, Disney, Princess and now, Carnival. This was my 4th cruise in 11 months.The food was much better than Disney, but not as good as the Princess and Celebrity. Took this ship only because they are the only ones that go to Progreso, Mexico to see the Mayan ruins. I will never recommend for shore excursions. The one I booked on their site did not include transportation. Taxi cab was 25 round trip so we did even go on it. The ship excursions include transport and they are waiting for you at dock area. 's Chichen Itza tour was 50 more dollars than the ship excursion. Better to book with ship.

Pros: The itinerary

Cons: The constant smell of garbage

Recommends Carnival Triumph? No.
