Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

This was our 2nd cruise on the Triumph, ship was delayed getting into port and we did not board until 6:00 pm that evening (should have been onboard at 12:00 pm.). After boarding, at 7:25pm we were told the ship would only make 1 port Progreso, (signed up for Progreso and Cozemul). Booked cruise for anytime dining and was changed with no notification. Housekeeping was great, that was the positive on this crew. Carnival kept all information until last minute and was not forthcoming on the information. I felt if the ship had mechanical problems (text said propulsion problems) Carnival should have canceled the cruise or at least offered discounts on future cruises.
Ship Quality
Carnival said the ship had a propulsion problem and downplyed the extent of the problem.
Food and Dining
Booked cruise 40 days before and our dining time was changed the day of cruise.Found 3 moldy hot dog buns on Lido deck serving line.
Cabin / Stateroom
Great cabin
Service and Staff
Staff was repeating what Carnival told them.
Children's Programs
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
Only made 1 destination, Progreso. There is not much to do in Progreso except the Mayan ruins which are great.
