Why cruise to hot from hot
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: New Orleans
Ship-first time on the Triumph, first time balcony. I know More why they only built two ships like this, very congested and made you feel crowded all the time. Been on Fantasy class ships before and never felt crowded. The lido deck set up was terrible for the regular shows they have on the lido deck. The did put in a giant screen so you could see the shows. It miserably hot the days at sea, and since the pools were shoulder to shoulder with people, i truly felt like i was in a huge bathtub, warm and thick it felt, i do not believe they continued to recycle the water out. The room was nice, but only get a balcony if you can get a deal, i do not it was worth the money. I really think this review would be different if i had gone in sept or oct, just to hot, i left 100 degree weather to go to 100 degree weather, but i knew it was going to be that way, my own fault.
Service-room steward was awesome. dining staff was great also.
Shows-something to do, but not as good as some i have seen before. I had Noonan the Cruise Director before on another ship, he is very good at what he does. Comedian was also good.
debarkation- great, self assist at 645, in my car at 715.
Sorry to be a bummer about this, but I think the weather and congested ship made cruising a bummer for me this time. I am going back to the fall and spring cruise, If i go in the summer again it will be to Alaska Less
