  3. Carnival Triumph
This was our third time cruising with Carnival and probably our last. Embarkation was fine no issues the room was ready on time and always cleaned daily. The ship is old and dated but that wasn't an issue for us as we were outside all the time. The walls are very thin we could hear the person next door snoring all night through the "walls" :( (we brought a fan to drown out any noise and that still didn't work). The bed was not comfortable at all, very lumpy! We chose "anytime dining", went to dinner on the early side and never had a problem with seating. The food was not as good as in previous cruises. The waitstaff was always pleasant and helpful but the quality was just not there. Made to order omelettes for breakfast were the best, Guys Burgers are great too!! My husband and I ordered the exact same meal one night except he had the "tuna" as an appetizer and I didn't, he was up all night sick as a dog! The next day he was completely fine so it definetly was the tuna. Entertainment was just "ok". We walked out of one of the shows as we just didn't like it and the other two were a little better. We saw one of the comedians, a woman, it was the PG show and it wasn't very good and we never went back to the comedy shows. We had no children with us so I can't comment on activities for them. The few children on board this cruise seemed to take over the pools and hot tubs though. The port of Cozumel was nice, we took a taxi to Sky Reef (approx 10-15 min taxi ride) which was very nice and quiet. Did some snorkeling and had lunch. This is not a "beach", they have lounge chairs and table & chairs; however, not a bathing beach. It's on a reef, mainly for snorkeling. It was a vacation with a few hiccups we will try another cruise line next time.

Just OK this time

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin 8C 7381
Cabin was adequate, very thin walls. Didn't spend much time in there. Balcony was nice. Bed was uncomfortable :(
