Triumph triumphs!

Sail Date: July 2013
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Galveston
Just returned from a five night cruise to Progresso and Cozumel. My husband and I had a very enjoyable time. We cruised on the Triumph last December and enjoyed that cruise very much. Due to the increased number of passengers and children will probably not sail in the summer again. Will stick to November and December sailings. The crowds aside, the Triumph did not disappoint. Embarkation and debarkation were a breeze as we were in and on board quickly as well as off the ship and through Customs quickly.

Our cabin was awesome. We had an L-shaped cabin. LOVED IT!! I liked that the closet spaced was away from the bathroom. The king size bed provided excellent support and a great night's sleep! The double size balcony was a treat. There was room for a chaise lounge, two chairs and a table. I could not get enough of the balcony. It was the perfect retreat from the craziness of the Lido deck.

Our service and food were very good in the Paris dining room although our head More waiter was hot and cold. The support waiter was very good. We requested a table for two and were lucky to get it. Service was prompt and the food was overall very good. Shows were pretty much the same from December. Did enjoy the Show band several times in smaller venues playing Party music and big band arrangements.

The new food venues were an enjoyable alternative. Guy's Burgers were tasty and we enjoyed the Blue Cantina custom taco and burrito station. For chile heads, the salsa bar was awesome. Many fresh salsas and condiments...the habanero sauce had an excellent flavor along with the expected heat!

Lots of smiles and positive attitudes from the support and service staff. I hope that when we try another Carnival ship that we will experience the same level of service. Less

Cabin 7416. Awesome cabin with a double sized balcony. Great location. Two decks up you are on the Lido deck and three decks down you are at the Paris Dining room.
