Carnival Triumph Cruise Review by joetul
- Sail Date: December 2012
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Balcony
After standing in lines for so long, I don't think I saw anyone cancel.
Debarkation was fine.
On-board, Triumph had some of the longest lines Ive ever seen on a cruise ship. Lines at Lido Dining Room were terrible, often because only one side of the buffet was open.
Our cabin had a odor of urine in the bathroom the entire cruise. We never met our cabin steward.
Progreso is no Cozumel unless you want to do a particular shoreside activity, such as seeing the Mayan ruins.
IMHO, Progreso is just a "place to go," certainly not someplace that could become your favorite destination.
I would have a difficult time recommending this particular cruise again. Nothing against Carnival in general, but having done this particular cruise itinerary on Carnival 5 times previous this was the worst.
Finally we probably saw more obnoxious 20-something ruffians on this ship than any previous cruise. I would think the low price and proximity have a lot to do with this. Nothing dangerous but several uncalled for loud expletive filled exchanges with wait staff in Paris dining room made for an uncomfortable situation.
Overall, vessel need a refit.
