My trip was a first time cruise with family. Overall I enjoyed the experience. I was under the weather the first two days but I attempted to make the most of it. Getting on board was somewhat a bummer as I never received my luggage and was late for dinner. I went to guest services and they said they were looking for the owner of the bags so they could deliver them. The tags had apparently fell off and they kept them upfront. I was happy that I was honest because they never asked me for ID and told me to just take it. The ship had some mechanical issues and we did not leave port until 3 hours after we were supposed to. This put us behind schedule but I didn't let that bother me.

I felt the food was amazing on this ship. The dinners were very elegant and had a romantic feel to it. We were treated like kings and queens and waited on hand and foot. Whatever we asked for we were able to get it. I was a little disappointed with the lack of seafood available. I am a crawfish and shrimp guy and there was little of that to be found outside of dinner appetizers.

The room was nice and much more roomy than I pictured it would be. We had 3 in a room and it did not feel as though we did. The staff were great and kept our room immaculate. Once again whatever we asked for we were able to get it.

I enjoyed the onboard activites very much. I didn't get a handle on times of activities until the last day or so. I missed many of the shows but I enjoyed just hanging out by the pool and relaxing.

We didn't do excursions just site seeing for the most part. My sister went around Nassau for $25 bucks and she loved the tour guide and had a great time.

After things got settled in after a rough start it got better with time. We will definitely be ging again actually we are planning a trip next year on Triumph.
