This will be our last cruise with Carnival. The Triumph is simply falling apart. While laying out deck the ship blew hot oil out of the smokestack onto sunbathers. The crew had to help everyone clean themselves and then shut down the ... Read more

Carnival Triumph-Room-Left From New Orleans-Room 1042-2 people (my wife and myself) The ship was nice considering all it's been through. The only issues we had with the ships condition were the enamel peeling on the wood on our balcony ... Read more

This was a spur-of-the-moment, gotta-get-away cruise, so we didn't plurge on the cabin, just took an inside cabin on Deck 1 (Riviera). Embarkation was smooth, cabin was ready at 1:30, but we had to ask for things like hand soap, wine ... Read more

Have cruise over 20 times with Carnival. This is my first negative review of any ship. Embarkation and debarkation in NOLA smooth as always. Ship was not clean and rotten odors throughout in passageways and public restrooms. Crew staff ... Read more

I have to say, this cruise was better than I was expecting is some ways and worse then I was expecting in different ways. As a first time cruiser I was pleased by the cleanliness of the ship and the great service! The food was always fresh ... Read more

We had a great time. Yes the ship is old but the updates were very well done, the ship is tastefully decorated. There are still some updates that need to be done but that did not take away from our cruise. The food is very good with many ... Read more

This was our 6th cruise, all with Carnival. This was the only 5 day we have done and it really was a last minute cruise for us. We made the reservations through an on-line travel agency about 5 weeks before the sailing date. I didn't ... Read more

Ok, so first. I just want to say, regardless of anything else, I definitely had a great time! It's hard not to have fun when you're on a cruise and I've been on a lot. However, the ship itself needs to be dry docked and completely ... Read more

You can tell the ship is in need of an upgrade the interior is dated and several areas show a lot of wear from age. It should be remodeled or replaced. The lighting in the cabins was okay. We had quite a bit of storage. The sink in our ... Read more

Every two years our family and friends book a 4 or 5 day cruise. (80+people) We all meet around the pool for sailing. The layout had the people all smashed together, we could not get to bars easy because everyone was hanging out in both ... Read more

I am quite displeased with Carnival Cruise Lines. This was our first cruise so we were elated to see new locations and experience thrill and splendor abroad. First, this ship is old, not unlike a dirty Flying J restroom. Oh, its been ... Read more

Our children took us on this cruise for our 70th birthdays. We drove from St. Louis to New Orleans which was a better departure point than Florida for us. Despite the number of people boarding, the process went very smoothly and ... Read more

We wanted to do a New Year's cruise, and this one fit our schedule and the price was reasonable. The price was likely a bit higher than usual. We saw all kinds of people, lots of teens and families, but people were polite and I didn't ... Read more

The staff was excellent, entertainment excellent but the ship smells like sewage in some areas and generally seems to be in need of repairs. While getting a massage it's very very noisy because children are playing directly above the spa. ... Read more

This ship is in need of a refurb. The crew was lackadaisical for the most part. The cruise director's announcements were difficult to understand. We took our meals on the second level of the Lido Grill Buffet. The staff was slow bussing ... Read more

We booked this cruise because it was a great price when we booked and it was a quick getaway that would have us back home before Christmas. Rather than drive 8 hours each way to New Orleans, we booked flights on Southwest Airlines during ... Read more

First off, I feel bad for those who had a less than enjoyable experience on the Triumph. This was our 3rd Carnival cruise and our 1st on the Triumph. Our previous Carnival cruises were great, that's why we stuck with them in booking this ... Read more
