Triumph first time
Destination: Mexican Riviera
The ship itself was similar to other Carnival ships of that vintage of 1500 or so passengers. We mainly danced and just had a great time. Every cruise is what you make of it. Would you believe there More are people on this ship from Houston who do not know how to two step? We had a wonderful time. Food was same as we had on other Carnival ships with one difference in the Lido Buffet. There were no trays but huge rectangular plates large enough to put your bowl on as well as your food. There are two breakfast buffet lines, but for quick stuff in the center where the croissants are, they have oatmeal and eggs for a quick grab then you can wait for the line to die down if you want something else. Same at lunch, go to the center and get a salad then go back to the main line when the line recedes. The ship was not too crowded. We don't like being around smoke and it really was not bad. We spent time in the Casino dancing and having a good time and of course smoking was allowed there, but not everywhere.
Several live bands. Latin as well as country music. I was surprised that there was no lobby dance floor to speak of.
The only negative I would express is the hall running from the bow of the ship to the casino - Probably deck five- was kept crowded on formal nights with ship's photographers, lots of them. Reminded me of a midway at a carnival.
I guess we liked it. We are going again on April 28.
Hope we see you. Less
Cabin review: PT1207 Porthole
Our favorite cabin on any ship except balcony. Cabin 1207. Very roomy. Had room to put open suitcase on floor and just leave it at the end of the bed.Read All Porthole (PT) Reviews >>
