Review Summary

First of all we they got behind at the terminal, I heard that the ship was late and I also heard that the computers went down during boarding. Anyway we had a boarding time of 11:30 to 12:00 but was not able to get on the ship until around 1:30. It was suggested that we go to the Riverwalk for the wait. Once we were able to board it went really fast.Our stateroom was ready so that was a plus. I have been on the ship before so I was familiar where things were located. The ship is very nice, a little dated and cramped, but all in all it is still a very nice ship. Service had its moments. Although most are very friendly, you can tell they all have too much to do since Carnival has had cutbacks. Our cabin steward was very nice and did fill all my requests. His name was Dewa. Room cleaning was a little sloppy, we was super nice and very helpful. Dining room staff the same way, very friendly but overworked and it really did show. The food was so-so. I was disappointed in the food. Nothing spectacular to stick in my mind. Our waiters Robert and Vergel were very friendly and did try to make our dining room experience wonderful. Entertainment was not all that great. Ports of call: Cozumel, which I love, we had a very good day there. No issues at all. Progresso, I will never go there again. As soon as we got off the bus at the pier we was bomb barded with locals trying to sell us something. We went to the free beach and we were approached by about 60 different locals trying to sell their goods. Some even came repeatedly and then would became hateful when we would tell them no and called us a few choice names. I recommend doing a excursion to a private beach or the ruins for that port. All in all it was a good trip for myself and my family but I personally will probably not get back on the Triumph. Going through Customs was a breeze!!

Dewa our steward, he accommodated me with with the requests that I had. A little sloppy with the cleaning. Waiters Vergel and Robert very good. Were a little slow but did their best.

Nice ship but cramped and it is dated.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Love the cabin because of the balcony. Whenever we sail we try to get a balcony cabin because they are a little more roomy and like the privacy of the balcony.

Ship Tip

Bring your own toilet paper because that stuff on the ship is awful.

If you go book an excursion to stay away from the locals. They bomb barded us and when we said no that called us names.
