Ship Facts: Carnival Triumph Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Triumph Deck Plans
Second Cruise Out of Galveston
Stayed at the Hampton Inn, on the Seawall. Nice hotel, clean, good breakfast and across the street from Walmart.$45 reserved us indoor parking at Galveston Park N Cruise. very convenient not having to wait for a shuttle, since it was just a five minute walk from the ship. At terminal around 10:30 and we were sitting poolside by 11:30. Our room was 8261 was just forward of the atrium on the starboard side. From our room we could hear the music and noise from the main lobby. It didn't really bother us ,but it might some people. The room was the smallest sq.footage we have had in the 3 cruises we have done. Furnishings were dated, but clean. Marco our steward was helpful, efficient and friendly. The lines for the buffet were the longest we had experienced on a cruise. We liked our waiters for the 8:15 seating in the dining room and thought the food was better than in the buffet, but after the third night of it taking almost two hours, we quit going and braved the buffet. We used room service once, for lunch. It was good, but it was hard to get though to order.

Liked Progreso, very relaxed. Snorkeled with Eagle Ray Divers in Cozumel. Best snorkeling excursion we have ever done! This was our first 5 day cruise and will most likely be our last. Seems you just leave and are back again.Time in port was so short, we wouldn't do this cruise again.

We think we got what we paid for and were happy with our cruise. Went ahead and bought a future cruise certificate. Easy, peasy getting off carrying our own luggage, husband coming back in 10 minutes with car to pickup me and luggage.
