My first ever cruise experience was very good to excellent.  On the upside - the ship (Triumph), service , amenities and on-board activities were first-rate.  The food was generally very good and plentiful.  The cost of drinks wasn't too burdensome and the entertainment was very, very good.  The excursions in Progresso and Cozumel were informative and fun..  On the down-side - I was surprised by smoking being allowed in the ship's casino, in addition to a designated areas outside on the deck(s).  I was also surprised by the amount of unsupervised children in all the pools and hot-tubs - to the extent that they made adult use uncomfortable.

Susjawana, Didi and Joshua made eating in the formal dining area an outstanding experience and Gusti kept the cabin in the highest level of cleanliness.  In addition, his towel art was highly regarded.

The adult comedy shows were great.  Of special note what the Lighting Technician's stories in the Liar's show.  I forget his name; but he was outstanding.

In Progresso (Mayan), - the Dzibilchaltun Ruins with the Mexican Rodeo and Buffet was very enjoyable.  The air-conditioned bus, easy walking tour, sights and sounds and information by Maria (Mary); the singing, dancing, equestrian and roping exhibitions were highly memorable and first-rate and the buffet was exceptional.

In Cozumel, the Jose Cuervo tour (The Tequila Experience) conducted by Martin was superb.  The experience was highly enjoyable and informative.

I highly recommend both excursions.
