I enjoyed the ports of call and this was definitely the time of year to go. i didn't "do my homework" and expected to see a small town when I went to Merida. It has a population of about one million people and has a lot to offer. I would definitely like to go back and spend more time there!
This was our first cruise so we really can’t compare it to anything. We had a great time and we will use Carnival for our next cruise. I wish there were better drink options. I do not drink alcohol but my spouse does. We did not take advantage of the drink package because we would both have to buy it.
Overall I don't feel I got a good value for the amount of money I spent both in onboard expenses as well as for the cruise itself. I wish that there were not so many hidden charges. I had some issues and wish they had been resolved a bit better.
it was nice but old, but the price was great so just don't set your expectations to high and you'll have fun.
I wish carnival would include the drinks in the cruises like Norwegian does. also when will these ships learn to discount the photos taken I would have bought some if they were $5 each not $21.
Over all, it was a trip to remember. We were with good friends, enjoyed the food, the entertainment and I even got a chance to relax on deck 11 a couple of days. Deck 11 is above all the partying so you can hear the music, but it's not crowded and people up there are just relaxing, too. The food was plentiful and I wish I could've eaten more of it. ;-) One thing they need to address is their app. I couldn't get that to work to save my life. It would have been very cool if it had. But we had no problems and look forward to doing it again.
We had a wonderful time. The services that were offer were great and the kids loved camp ocean. Our waiter and waitress Yasa,Yin, and Gusti were amazing. Food was was really good and eating areas were always clean. Turndown services were excellent.
We will definitely cruise on the Triumph again! We loved the crew, captain and all that was available to us! I would live it to be a smoke free cruise or at least move it to an area where you don't have to pass through.
I can't stress enough to spend the extra money for a sweet you have priority check-in you have priority waiting online to before and after the cruise and they spoil you. I also prepaid for our tips with . Good decision. Get as much prepaid as you can.
Over all the trip was extremely memorable, we loved our room service and waking up to coffee every morning definitely spoiled us. We will be planning our next cruise very soon. Unfortunately though we are from Corpus Christi so when we docked we found out we couldn't go home cause they were evacuating our home town. So we stayed a few extra days in new Orleans.
Overall, our experience was wonderful.. lots of eating, resting, drinking (and repeating)
Delightful employees always make it enjoyable and an amazing variety in foods, snacks and spirits.
I always feel so at home in my cabin :)
I hope to cruise carnival again! ~Kathy
This was a great cruise, the whole process was smooth and stress free. The crew was friendly and all staff was great an very professional. The food and the dinnng hall was all easy to get to an from and the food was good with a great selection. Each port was fun an easy to sight see if you wish. Agan i can go on an on but at the end all i can say what a great time they showed and I had.
