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 was our first time cruising. We were celebrating our 20th Wedding Anniversary and it was our first time taking a vacation without the kids since our honeymoon. Overall we were very happy with our time on board and only had one small ... 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

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

We decided we wanted to cruise on Sunday, Dec. 11th. We were put on a waiting list & was called the day before (14 Dec) that a cabin opened up. Of course this was an interior cabin. We did not decide straight away on taking the ... Read more

This was the fifth cruise with Carnival for my wife and myself. First time on the Triumph with a total group of ten. The boat itself looks great for its age. You have to understand that the ocean and salt are very unforgiving, so the ... Read more

We have been on many carnival cruises and this one was the worst of them all. Although leaving from new Orleans is a nice change from the busy Florida ports, the problems started as soon as we arrived on the ship. The cruise line tried to ... Read more

This was the shortest cruise we have ever taken but by the end of it we were ready to go home! We usually cruise out of California but decided to come to New Orleans to relive our honeymoon and cruise on a different ship for a change. ... Read more

Ten of us, including brother, daughter, granddaughters and spouses for a short weekend four-day getaway from NOLA to Cozumel. No problems checking in, boarding and going to our suite - quick and slick. After dropping our carry on's, went ... Read more

Embarkation went very smooth, on the boat in less than an hour. We stayed on the Lido deck, room 9230. The room was smaller our balcony rooms on past cruises, but adequate. Perfect location to everything. Our cabin Stewart, IWAYAN was ... Read more

Our first cruise, so there was a steep learning curve! We did enjoy ourselves on this cruise and found the ship to be just fine except for 2 things: one, there really needs to be an adults-only area. We could never get into a hot tub ... Read more

We were looking for a little entertainment on board, and we were not disappointed in the least. It's been a few cruises since we've been on a Carnival cruise and one of the things we missed most were the comedy shows. There were two ... Read more

At first we were very exited. this was suppose to be a nice fun, relaxing family cruise. We were very disappointed with almost the whole cruise. First our room was not cleaned for the first two days. Second when the house keeper did ... Read more

This was a "sister cruise"...myself and my 2 sisters. We just wanted a little getaway from New Orleans where we live. It didn't start out good. There was a "computer glitch" during embarkation. We were in Zone One. ... Read more

First Off, I want to say I've went and read some reviews about the same cruise I sailed on, and I absolutely hate that my fellow cruisers did not seem to have the same experience that I did. I travel a good bit, so here is something to ... Read more

I wanted to do another 5 day cruise and being that New Orleans was the most convenient port to my hometown (though still a 700 mile drive!)I chose to sail out of New Orleans. My daughter had recently done the same cruise on the Triumph ... Read more

The Triumph is definitely an older ship. Despite reading somewhere that there had been recent upgrades, I found the room to be rather out of date. The leather-like sofa in a peach color was filthy with dirt in the grain of the covering. ... Read more

I'm not picky at all and I do have plenty of class. I love CCL and have never had a bad experience in 4 cruises. I have to admit that the food quality is a little less than my 1st cruise in 2009. But with so many options to eat never had ... Read more

We went on this cruise with some of my Red Hat Sisters. We with several others are mildly handicapped and included one in a wheelchair all the time. This was the first time we had sailed with the new embarkation where you select your time. ... Read more

This was a family cruise with my husband, daughter, son in law, and 11 month old grandson. It was our first time on the Triumph. We had sailed several times on the Elation out of New Orleans. We had Balcony cabins of 8344 and 8388. No ... Read more
