Embarkation: We had registered online for 11:00 boarding, and arrived at 11:10. It was a cluster. Lines forming everywhere. Since I had forgot tape at home, we kept our baggage with us and got in line. After about 15 minutes a ... Read more

Well this is the third and last cruise I'll take with Carnival. My first cruise was on the Carnival Sensation. This was a decent cruise for a first timer. This set the bar for following cruises. The next cruise I took was on the ... Read more

The food on this ship was absolutely horrendous! I actually lost weight. I do not understand how every single meal that was prepared and served to us in the dining room could be so bad. I ended up having to eat at Guys Burger Bar or the ... Read more

Normally cruise on Fantasy class ships. With the Triumph being a larger ship we were excited for a change, plus we were bringing along first timers who were very excited due to our raving about past cruises, over the years. We will not ... Read more

Husband wanted to celebrate his birthday on a cruise, so he booked a voyage leaving on his happy day. Since we have taken 25+ cruises, my expectations were low for this venture. I was pleasantly surprised by efficiency, friendliness, ... Read more

Been on several cruises with Carnival. This was the first time we ported in New Orleans. We mostly chose this venue out of convenience for us as we live in Tennessee and did not want to travel to Florida this time. We did not like this ... Read more

I scheduled this trip for our 30 year anniversary. I think it is time carnival retires this ship. The crew does it's best to keep you having fun and comfortable, great job, but the ship is way too old. There was rust in the bathrooms, ... Read more

The Cabin: Air conditioning only cool the room to 75 degree with no one in the room. I had 2 specialist check on air conditioning and one brought me a small fan and told me this was all they could do for us. They would not even consider ... Read more

We were looking for a last minute value priced cruise before school started back up. Have been wanting to sail from New Orleans for a while so when the dates lined up this cruise seemed perfect. We knew going into this that the ship was ... Read more

Our cabin had a balcony & we really enjoyed the view during the cruise. The beds & sheets were very comfortable & my son said the bunk was too. The ship was like the other Carnival ships we have been on, not much different ... Read more

The Carnival Triumph did not disappoint! After many negative reviews, I have decided your cruise is what you make of it. We went intending to have a great time, and we did! The ship looks in great condition. Here and there it shows its ... Read more

3rd Carnival cruise. Instead of 2x a day service as we had on our previous cruises, we were told we had to select either morning or night, ice buckets were not standard. The dining room was never completely full, it took 30-45 minutes to ... Read more

I choose this cruise because it fit the time frame we had available and New Orleans is an easy drive or Amtrak trip from my hometown. Overall, it was a great trip. The embarkation process was very smooth and we were onboard quickly. We ... Read more

Do not feed into the negative feedback about the Carnival Triumph. This ship is very nice (similar to Freedom if you have sailed on her). The carpet was new, everything was very clean. The temperature in our Oceanview cabin on the Main ... Read more

We had a family of 26 members. Most of us enjoyed parts of cruise. It was actually just too hot to enjoy anything. The air conditioning wasn't cool enough inside some cabins. Some were too cold. This wasn't a cruise for taking children ... Read more

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
