Carnival Triumph Western Caribbean 5 day out of Galveston
Destination: Western Caribbean
Some of you may have heard mixed reviews about Carnival cruise line but that is usually because they have not been on a Carnival ship in over 10 years. The ships are a little smaller than some cruise lines newer ships but I like it that way. The standard inner room is larger on Carnival than on pretty much any other cruise line. Our aft balcony had a lovely view but was a little smaller inside than other balcony cabins I've had on the Triumph and other Carnival ships. The Triumph, while not a big ship by modern standards, was still pretty big and had thousands of folks on board and yet many of the staff spoke to me by name as I walked about the ship. It was amazing that they could remember so many names! I have never met more friendly people than on this cruise. I purchased 4 future cruise certificates as I definitely plan to Cruise more with Carnival. Less
Cabin review: 8M7428 Aft-View Extended Balcony
Our Aft Balcony cabin number 7428 was smaller than other Balcony cabins I've had on Triumph and other Carnival ships. Triumph does not have refrigerators as many other ships do but the room steward filled up our portable ice chest at least once per day so cold drinks were always available. There was plenty of storage space and closet space. I always bring some extra wire hangers and highly recommend doing this on any cruise. Bed was VERY firm (too firm for me) but some people like a firm bed.Read All Aft-View Extended Balcony (8M) Reviews >>
Port and Shore Excursions
We didn't do much this particular trip. Just shopping, then drinks and snacks at 3 Amigos. But as a general rule Cozumel is the best port of call on the Western Caribbean route. Great Ruins: Tulum, Great Bars: Senior Frogs, 3 Amigos, etc... Great tours: Mexican fiesta's, Kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving, mountain bike riding, zip lining....I've pretty much done it all on past trips. There is something for every taste in Cozumel. It is the one Caribbean port of call that I believe I could stay at for a week and not be bored.
