Did a five night cruise on the Triumph and had an excellent time. Did the Chef's Table, which was awesome. Had read several of the reviews about bad smell and how bad the ship state was in. I roamed the ship and yes the ship is a little ... Read more

My cousin and our two mothers chose this particular cruise due to the ports proximity to my mother's house in Foley, Alabama and it being during spring break, when I'm off of work. I knew the ship was old, but was shocked that it was ... Read more

My mother set this trip up for her five kids and all the grand kids (23 of us in all). I have three kids and my youngest is only 15 months. This ship is not very stroller friendly with all the stairs but once you familiarize yourself ... Read more

I was able to relax on this cruise and I appreciated that very much. Getting on the ship was smooth and we did not have any problems at all. We got onboard and went up to eat at Guy's Burgers-those were FABULOUS! We frequented that place ... Read more

I was so excited about taking our first cruise with my family. We had been planning for nearly a year, and we had a blast. There were 6 in our party and we had two connecting cabins. 2376 and 2378. It was small, but we expected that. ... Read more

This was our fourth cruise out of New Orleans on the Carnival Triumph. That being said you know we must like it since we keep coming back. I am not going to be biased though in writing a review. It is important to tell the good and the ... Read more

I will fill in the details for my husband; Day 1 - Got on the ship and the entire floor smelt like sewage. Then we had anytime seating and was given a pager to wait for 1 hour before being seated-was told to come back at 8PM the next ... Read more

The first thing we noticed was that all glass surfaces, external and internal windows, bannister dividers, etc., were filthy. We had an ocean view cabin on Deck 1, and that window even that had smeared blood on the inside surface (how the ... Read more

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

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

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
