Default 1st timer back from the Triumph

This mini recap is way overdue being that we have been back for damn near two weeks! My wife and I were on the 4/29 sailing to the WC via the wonderful ship Triumph. We were with a party of amount 30 for a wedding for one of our friends. One of the benefits with a wedding you do get to preboard, while we were preboarding we all couldn't believe who we saw boarding with us.... Sure enough we were walking right behind Richard Simmons! It turns out there was "a cruise to lose gathering" on the triumph.
We had great port days at Cozumel, Cayman Islands, and Jamica. As most of you know we did have to tender in Cozumel, and the Cayman Islands which we had no problems with. We had great excursions at all of our ports of call. Our favorite port was Cayman Islands by far.
As far as the ship goes it was amazing as it was our first cruise but for sure not my last!! We are already planning our next cruise for next May. If anyone has any question please feel free to ask.

Congrats on a great trip!! Any suggestions for other 1st timers going on the Triumph?? Favorite places to hang out, etc... We are going with, I think, 7 couples total. What are good places for groups of people to meet up and find enough seats for everyone? What did you love best about the ship? Thanks for the inside scoop!!

The best place to hang out in my opinion is deck 5 maybe because that is where the casino is We always met people at the casino bar during the day and at night we would meet up on the Lido deck. The food was great as usual and the adult comedy shows were great!

Where is your cruise taking you to? If your going to the WC and need any ideas for excursions let me know we had a great time on the ones that we did.

Thanks for the news. We're doing Eastern, so no luck on the excursions. Glad you had fun on yours, tho. Hard trying to decide which ones we should try, or can afford in some cases...
