Carnival Triumph was awesome for a quick get away!
Destination: Western Caribbean
Friday was Sea day and we didn't do a thing except rest and enjoy the sun. I picked out our loungers early, around 9:00 A.M. before it got crowded. As mentioned in other reviews, the chair hogs come out early, dump their towels and never come back. This is really a problem Carnival needs to address. Another thing that put a damper on our 2nd sea day was the group of men smoking cigars near us. This group of guys looked like they would put up a fight if I asked them to go to the smoking section, so I just sat there all day, breathing their nasty smoke. There wasn't another place in the sun to move to, or I would have. If it had been just a couple of minutes, it wouldn't have been so bad. But it was ALL DAY LONG! Rude!!
In Cozumel, we booked the 2 tank dive thru Carnival. I would normally book independently, but all of the local dive shops excursions left before our ship docked on Saturday. Turns out, my son had a wonderful time! He said the dive masters were very careful with the new divers, the equipment was good and it was an experience he'll never forget. Except for the pouring rain all morning, it was a perfect day!
Food was a little disappointing. I had been on a cruise in March on Carnival Liberty. The menus were exactly the same (not really a problem, just stating a fact).
Overall, this cruise was exactly what we needed...relaxing. It's an older ship and is showing it's age but for a quick get away, it's perfect. If you're looking for a glamorous ship, you might want to try a different one. Less
Cabin review: 9A9257
Cabin 9257. Just a few steps away from all the activity on the Lido deck. The cabin is only a few feet away from the main elevators, yet we didn't hear any extra noise. This will be our location choice from now on! Perfect location!
