Fantastic 4 day getaway!!!
Destination: Southern Caribbean
We enjoyed the music in the casino area and several of our party won some money in the casino. The martini tasting was a great thing as well! The Piano Bar and Hollywood Dance club were a blast! We saw the adult comedians and they were hilarious! Definitely not for the kids though. We enjoyed sitting in the Atrium bar area before dinner and listening to Ron. He sings country music. He is very friendly and we were able to meet and speak with him. He will take requests and is just an awesome guy. I don't mind the music played on deck and around the ship but it was a nice change from the Wobble :)
We went back to Paradise Beach in Cozumel. It is a favorite to us. Had a great day even though we were delayed about 2 hours due to propulsion issues on the ship. Weather was great entire trip and enjoyed great food and drinks on the beach and did some serious relaxing.
This was my 13th cruise and first time on the Triumph. She is a really lovely ship. Yes, you see some wear and tear from age but overall a very pretty and clean ship. I will never understand how some people say they hated their cruise because they saw some worn spots on the carpet. I mean really???? just my opinion of course.
We experienced continued propulsion issues and were later getting in. Instead of arriving back in Galveston around 7:30am we arrived at 1:30 pm. Was this bad for us? NO! We got more time on the ship. Did we feel bad for the next set of cruisers? Well of course we did because this had to affect their cruise in some kind of way. Getting off ship was not terrible but it did take a bit longer because of the lateness of getting in. But I thought Carnival handled things very well. We are definitely going to sail the Triumph again!!! Less
