  3. Carnival Triumph
This was mine and my girlfriends first cruise so I read a lot of reviews about the Triumph and now realize that most people are too picky and complain to much. We enjoyed our 5 night cruise and did not want to get off the boat. We enjoyed our balcony room and will have to have one going forward. Loved having a glass of Crown and Coke on the balcony while the women got ready for dinner. However I will say, we were on Deck 6 close to the elevators and late at night you could definitely here the music from the night club which was pretty much my only complaint. Our first stop was Cozumel and we decided not to do a Carnival excursion. Instead we went with the Cozumel Bar Hop and had a blast. It was much cheaper then majority of the Carnival excursions and we got to see the east side of the island of Cozumel. All of the locations they took us to had amazing views of the beach and reasonable food/drink prices. The tour guide was very informative and friendly. After the Hop they returned us back to the dock our ship was at which was nice. The second port was Progresso and we decided to just stay on the ship and relax. It was nice since the ship was not as crowded on a port day. We enjoyed the dinner every night in the London Dining room (Request Allan, best server on board). Got to have a Woo-Woo shot from the little guy who walks around dinner with liquor (dude is a trip). Enjoyed the Dive-In movies, casino, bingo, and different activities that went on. The crew on this boat have exceptional people skills. The only rude people I encountered were other fellow cruisers which can be expected with 3000 people on board. We truly enjoyed our first cruise. This ship is what you make of it so go on with the right mind set and you'll have a great time!

First Cruise Was a Success!

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin 8B 6392
As stated above, I loved the balcony and spent a lot of time relaxing listening to the waves. Our cabin was right next to the stairs/elevators which made traveling on the ship easy. My only complaint is you can hear the Hollywood Disco Nigh Club late at night. "Mr. G" did an amazing job of cleaining our room and ensuring we had everything we needed.
