We chose this cruise as a last minute choice. We wanted to get away for a few days to rest and relax and this was available and reasonably priced. The staff were excellent, absolutely amazing. We had a table at the back of the dining ... Read more

Took Amtrak to New Orleans 1 night prior. French Quarter Fest was happening and it was very crowded. Lots of energy. Loved it. Four Points Sheraton on Bourbon Street via Priceline @ $84 a night was a steal. For the cruise, I will start ... Read more

The staff was very friendly. The shows were excellent (especially the magic show). The dining experience was wonderful. Our room steward was helpful, kind and picked up on our daily routines for making up the room and replenishing ice. The ... Read more

SUMMARY: This was a last-minute decision, my first Carnival cruise. I was hoping to read a book, have fun activities for my DD 13, and basically hide for a few days out on the water. That was the extent of my expectations and I am happy ... Read more

We had a group of 11 on the March 7th cruise on Carnival Triumph with a total of 5 rooms, two on deck 2 and three on deck 6. We were stopped on day one to ask if we needed anything and to see if we wanted turn down services, etc. We ... Read more

I must admit I was very nervous about this cruise, especially given all the bad reviews recently. We are a family of four and first time cruisers. Overall, we had a great trip and would definitely cruise again. The embarkation ... Read more

I did a lot of research before coming on this cruise and I have also read reviews of others about this specific cruise. First off, if you are expecting to get pampered 24/7, you might want to choose a more expensive cruise line so that ... Read more

We started with the rudest shuttle bus driver imaginable at the terminal. The process to get onboard went really fast and smooth. Our cabin was nice, our tv was missing the cable cord but the cabin boy had maintenance fix it immediately. ... Read more

This was my second, and last cruise with Carnival. This ship was HORRIBLY outdated (we found out after boarding that it is about to be dry-docked for refurbishing). We got the "grand suite" that was anything but grand. There ... Read more

My families experience was mostly positive aboard the Triumph. Embarkation was a bit like being herded like cattle even if you show up at your specified time. But nothing too bad at all. Debarkation was super simple. Plenty of ... Read more

Took the Carnival Triumph out of Galveston for a 5 night to Cozumel and Progresso - I LOVED the new stagger boarding process - much faster and less confusion - when we got on the boat we were missing our 3 waters (we are all VFIP ... Read more

This is our second cruise with Carnival and it is our last. We knew what better to expect this time around so we were better prepared. The food started out on the first night very promising. We had high hopes of what to expect but it ... Read more

I rarely ever write a review and have never written a poor review. However, we sailed on the Carnival Triumph and I totally regret spending my money on this trip. We had a balcony room that was so cramped we couldn't move around without ... Read more

We booked our trip about a year in advance. I got a great deal for 5 of us sisters in 1 cabin (we were going cheap). Next time I would probably break down and do 2 cabins, but $175 each for the last 2 people for a 7 day cruise was too ... Read more

We have been sailing with Carnival since 1989 and this cruise was so disappointing that we are now looking at changing to another cruise line. We have always loved Carnival and been vocal supporters of the line and experience. However ... Read more

The best things about this cruise were our steward, Linda (loved her towel animals), the gym (it was very nice), and our one excursion to Casa del Playa in Cozumel. Everything else was pretty bad. Getting on the boat was hell...hours of ... Read more
