Who cares? At this close of a booking time all you can do is have a great time...which you will because the Triumph is a nice ship. I have problems with passenger flow in a couple places but who cares?

Don't know the ship but I've booked last minute (10 days before cruise and we had to fly to Copenhagen to catch it.) You miss the anticipation and fun of planning, but on the other hand you get the unexpected fun of the cruise.

Need some cruise help?

That's fantastic, macmom!!!!! I love doing cruises like that, but my hubby is SUCH a stick in the mud about it.

You'll have a wonderful time!! Bon Voyage

Great for you! Better start packing!
As Dave says the Triumph has some flow issues as not all decks go forward to aft. So if you need to go the the main dinning room in the back you end up going up and down to get around the middle of the ship which is blocked. Once you are used to that fact its not a problem. Check the map on the ship and find out which floors allow you to walk all the way to the back and you can get around fine.

Have a great "surprise" cruise!
