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

We were booking for a group of 100 people so wanted to get something that was not too long and found this. From the time we arrived at the port we were treated so well. Checking in was really easy in New Orleans. (I have been to a lot ... 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

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
