THANKSGIVING ON THE TRIUMPH
Destination: Western Caribbean
A note anout the Jewelry.. They had an Invicta Watch sale.. They had a watch with a $795.00 tag on it.. The sale offerred the watch at $149.00 and this was supposed to be well below prices we could get back home.. I got home and went online and found the same watch all overthe place for $95 - $100.00... My suggestion would be to know your prices before geting roped into a sale..
Overall the 4 Day Cruise to Cozumel is what it is.. If you dont get caught up in all the hype, its a fun quickie cruise.. Cozumel is perfect for a one day adventure.. Just dont expect much from the boat.. The best entertainment on the boat was the DJ on a the Main Pool.. He kept everyone dancing and drinking...
Bon Voyage!! Less
We had stayed on th the Triumph once before in 2006..The Cabin was obviously part of the renovation.. At first glance it looked ok, however, the cabins were in fact lacking insulation between the rooms.. We were able to hear the couple in the next room arguing as if they were right besides us... Our Hot Water did not work for 3 of the 4 nights.. They finally fixed it on the last night...! I do have to admit, Carnival to compensate us by way of a credit on our Sign/Sail account for the inconvenience
Port and Shore Excursions
10 Best Sightseeing and Shopping.. Wehave done alot of excursions over the years, however this one was among the best! Our guide was Allen... He was outstanding.. I cant say enough about him.. I picked this excursion mainly for the wife and mother in law, however, he made it great! He was explaining everything and shared lot of his personal family history making it a very intersting tour. The Taquliia factory was very good.. The tasting as well as the history as to what went into making the Taquilla really held my interest! We then went downtown for about 40 minutes of shopping.. The stores there were on th dull side, so we decided to go eatand shop back at the Pier..
