Despite some of the negative reviews of this cruise, my friends and I had the best time!!! We had perfect weather and everything was run very smoothly on board! The ship, despite its age, was very nice and kept very clean by the ... Read more

This was our third time cruising with Carnival and probably our last. Embarkation was fine no issues the room was ready on time and always cleaned daily. The ship is old and dated but that wasn't an issue for us as we were outside all ... Read more

At 70 years of age, my daughter thought it was time for me to go on a cruise! It was my first time and not knowing what to expect, I was both pleasantly surprised and happy! I went down the water slide, played bingo, ate beautifully ... Read more

Chose this cruise due to proximity of ships port. Embarkation was a welcome experience as we had not sailed since 2009. Love the time slot method of getting on the ship. Crew was as good as any of the 5 cruises we have been on. We ... Read more

We just returned this past week from a 5 day Western cruise with Carnival Triumph out of New Orleans (Monday-Saturday). We've cruised many times on Carnival and other cruise lines, we always come back to Carnival for the fun atmosphere, ... Read more

This was our first cruise and I was very happy! I realize that this is a lower priced cruise than some of the larger ships but I was pleasantly surprised. The drinks were great, the staff was so nice and always working and I loved the ... Read more

This was indeed a fun trip and the crew was amazing. Our grandkids had a great time. On the other hand, for the number of people, and especially kids, on board, the pools were way inadequate. They were far too small. The pools and sun ... Read more

April 2017: We chose to leave from New Orleans, LA. This is a wonderful port. We went to New Orleans a day early to see the town, it was amazing! The Embarkation and Disembarkation went great. All of the staff were very friendly. ... Read more

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

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
