Don't waste your time boarding early, you will have to wait hours (like a hotel) to get on board, nor use checked baggage, it takes hours in most cases, till night before they are delivered during embarking. Debarking - do not think ... Read more

This was my 31st cruise. It was my 6th on Carnival and unfortunately not our best cruise. I still love the Carnival product and have two more Carnival cruises booked. This cruise missed the mark for us in a few areas but was an ... Read more

I went on this cruise with a wedding party. The ship is smaller than most I've been on. The entertainment was fun. The food not so good. I did however like the taco and burrito station set up by the pool during the lunch hours. It didn't ... Read more

I joined a group of 15 family members on the 4-day Triumph departure on June 30 out of New Orleans with two sea days and one day in Cozumel. My family was in one of the aft cabins on deck 8 (room 8432) with the larger balcony. This was our ... Read more

This is our 4th Carnival cruise, and possibly our last. It does not live up to the standards we have become used to when cruising Royal Caribbean and Norwegian. Since our honeymoon 10 years ago on Carnival, there have been way too many ... Read more

We have been on many cruises before and wanted to try this because it was close to home and being that I am pregnant it would be easier for me. Having said that the boarding was a joke, as was parking, checking in with rude people. The ... Read more

I'm a 52 yo male and this was my first ever cruise. We chose Carnival because we live near NOLA and we thought that a 5 night cruise to Cozumel and Progresso would be a good starter. My wife has been on two previous cruises and we traveled ... Read more

Let me start off by telling you, I have been on over 20 cruises and this was by far the most fun I've had on a ship. With that said, Carnival really needs to step it up. We were on the ship within 45 minutes of arriving at the terminal ... Read more

We chose this cruise out of New Orleans because we don't have many options in Alabama. Mobile doesn't have a boat anymore. Jacksonville is also a nice port, but we have been on the Elation before and wanted a new adventure. The service ... Read more

We chose this cruise based on recommendations of friends who have used Carnival out of other ports and raved about their service. We chose New Orleans for convenience. Embarkation was very well organized and went very smooth. We ... Read more

I have sailed many times and most have been good. This by far was one of the worst. I will never sail Carnival again. The food was terrible in some cases inedible. The buffet area very unclean. The cabin was hot. We complained (we had ... Read more

The food on the triumph wasn't the greatest. I remember one night having to give up on a piece of roasted duck. I say this to lead you into the following; the people and experiences were amazing. Every single person on the ship was, ... Read more

Pros: The Triumph is ok for the value. We had a good time (not great). Carnival staff was very courteous as always, and the cruise director made sure that it was a fun experience. The wait staff was wonderful, and our steward made sure ... Read more

I had zero knowledge of how to book a cruise and even where to go. We were given a "free" cruise voucher for buying into a time-share. I did not like having to book over the phone with someone just telling me the options instead ... Read more

Had a rough start to this cruise experience, but not with Carnival. The Port of New Orleans parking garage was full at 1 pm. We paid full price and was led via car caravan to an open parking lot blocks from the terminal. Try pulling ... Read more

If "value for your money" is a priority, choose this cruise ship. If you have a different priority, look elsewhere. This was my third cruise. I've exclusively sailed on Carnival. Triumph was a disappointment. There was an ... Read more
