The Triumph was!
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: New Orleans
We arrived about 10:30 and were able to enter the parking facility right away even thought there were still previous cruisers still leaving (I think it was Mobile where we had to wait till everyone had left before we could enter?!) It cost $80 which we paid in cash and there was an attendent there to feed our money into the machine and tell us where to head. We dropped off one suitcase and then drove up a couple of More levels and parked near the elevators. All went very smooth.
Once inside it took about 30 minutes in line to get through the security check and then we were directed (after a photo) to sit and wait till we could board. What we didn't know - and weren't told! - was that someone was standing off to the side giving out #'s to board by. So we ended up with a higher # than we'd have had if we 'KNEW' right off. We probably waited an hour to board but that was fine. All in all, a good process.
After lunch on the Lido deck we went to our cabin. We were very surprised by the size and pleased with the location even tho it was all the way in the front of deck 10.
Before this becomes a true novel, I want to say that we were well pleased with this trip. It's a beautiful ship and the food was good in all venues. The CD was a 'hoot' and we enjoyed listening to him 'whenever'. We enjoyed all the shows and especially the magic show. HOWEVER, we were 'straight on' in the theatre and our DR tablemates were on the side and saw all their 'secrets' which, to me, would take away all the fun and the 'wow' aspect.
We did the self debarkation which went smooth too. I would definitely sail on this ship in the future. Less
