hello fellow cruisers unfortunately thanks to the tridump i am officialy a former sailer. Really dont no where to begin, my lovely wife and i planned our 33rd wedding anniversary on the triumph 5 day halloween cozumel to progresso mexico. Yes we were excited not first time cruisers by the way. This ship needs to be cut up , blown up, whatever. The cabin oh yes the cabin we stayed in an ocean suite deck 7 cabin 7278, i have stayed in better rooms at truck stops i ordered the room to be decorated with the anniversary package with cake i got the i love you package close i guess , to be honest i would of prefered the room to be cleaned filthy is being kind, the camel back bed was horendous, the mirrors had not been cleaned inc. Tv in months, bathroom truck stop quality, entermaint what entertainment, food oh yeah the food gross on all phases main, buffet, you name it. Casino a joke smoke filled nightmare felt bad for kids and babys forced to walk through this health hazard just to eat at take photos. Pools if thats what you want to call them when you have 3500 people on board of course thats when they were open, slide ok its a slide fit for your back yard not a vessel. And last but not least that lovely smell of stench throughout the ship unbearable, the urine smell in my cabin was terrible not to mention the cabin flooded on the second night forcing my wife and i to sleep with a commercial fan running all night, these same fans were throughout ship masking the stench smell, yes folks it was that bad. The london dinning room was an absolute hole in the wall filthy i noticed the staff uniforms were filthy day one "red flag" the food fit for a dog horrible, all three nights the fourth night i chose not to eat oh i showed up i tried but the smell of stench i couldnt do it. The crew oh they gave it a go always doing something but horribly understafed. warning to anyone scheduled to sail this dump cancel your booking if you can if you cant bring a nose plug. Carnival screwed my wife and i and trust me i am not going to let it go , this is a real review no joke this ship is a cash cow for carnival , they have made no efforts to upgrade anything so once again if you can cancel our you will remember this review. what is sad i talked to a lot oh first timers and they said they would never cruise again including myself shame on you carnival. I WAS NOT THE ONLY ONE TRUST ME SO TAKE MY WARNING ONCE AGAIN CANCEL OR DO NOT BOOK YOUR VACATION ON THIS DISGUSTING VESSEL " THE CARNIVAL TRIUMPH BETTER KNOWN TO ME AS THE TRIDUMP "
