Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The Triumph is an older ship so don't expect much. Our dining room staff were amazing. They kept the children with us entertained. The buffett was always clean and it had good selections.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
There wasn't much to do other than crew lead activities. There are more things to do on bigger/new ships.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
We had one incident with an Room Service attended. She was unwilling to help a older man find his cabin. He appeared to be lost and she said "someone else would help him". He walked around our floor for a good 10 minutes before my family and I intervened.

New Orleans, Louisiana Did not visit port

Been to NO many times and we just stayed in the hotel the night before and went straight to the ship the next morning.

Cozumel, Mexico

My mom and I didn't go far from the ship. We sat on the beach chairs on this man made beach near the ship and people watched.

Progreso (Merida), Mexico

I'm not sure why this is even a port of all. It is not developed enough.


5 out of 5
We didn't have any issues. I'm not sure they even checked our passports.
