PRE CRUISE- Three couples drove from Memphis,TN to New Orleans. LA. We stayed at the Hoilday Inn Superdome. They provided accomadations, parking while(6days) away on the cruise and shuttle to cruise terminal for $130.
Embarkation- We arrived at 1145 and the line extended well outside of the building. It took 20 minutes to reach the line for security. The security line took about 30 minutes to get through and then we stood in another line to get processed onto the ship, another 30 minutes. It was well after 1:00 when we boarded and our cabins were ready. YAY
The Ship- We have cruised on Fantasy and the Dream and I must say that I enjoyed Triumph the most. Our cabin was always well cleaned and the cabin attendant knew us by name. Only Complaint, the oceanview windows were dirty. The ships decor appeared to be a bit more classy than the others, especially for its age. We never had a problem finding seats at the shows with an exception for the comedy shows. I enjoy dancing however the DJ was horrible. He played what he wanted to hear. Lucky for me I can dance to anything. The food was Hit or Miss, mostly Miss. (Lobster was good)
Ports- Were Ok.
Debarkation- We used the self assist program...it was excellent, we were off by 730am
