Review Summary

Living an hour from Galveston can be a perk.  Tired of cold, rainy weather?  Jump on a cruise ship and wake up somewhere else.  Like magic, the winter blues were GONE!

Discovered "Faster to the Fun" on this cruise, and was it ever worth it.  At 11:40am we had dropped our carry-ons at our cabin, and were sitting on the Lido deck having a Guy's burger, while watching the long lines filter on the boat.  Well worth 50 bucks.


Cozumel was beautiful as always, and Progresso was...well...different.  Lots of folks in the market place wanted to sell you everything under the sun. Still beats being at work, right?  Overall, a nice short break from real life, and didn't break the bank.

A little smaller than the Magic, even though both were balcony rooms, but still very adequate. Stewards were awesome as always.

Ship Tip

I heard all the nightmares about the Triumph's history, but not a single hiccup on our trip. Great ship, just a bit smaller all around than the Magic.

Ports Of Call

Galveston, Texas

If you're not from around the area and can spare an extra day, Galveston has some incredible history. Can't promise the beaches will look like Cozumel because that would be a lie, but the city has some really cool spots.
