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 Despite reading somewhere that there had been recent upgrades, I found the room to be rather out of date.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

We took this Carnival Triumph cruise because we wanted to try a Carnival Cruise and we wanted to take a cruise out of New Orleans. We had an offer from Harrah's New Orleans for a few nights, so we decided to combine a gambling trip with ... Read more

Drove 6 hours to get to New Orleans, so didn't see the city. We arrived at the Cruise building at about 12:30 p.m., which turned out to be an excellent time to go through the embarkation processing because those who had gotten there ... Read more

We booked this cruise as our annual vacation/anniversary celebration and it was great! Embarkation was messy, Port of NOLA is not as well organized as the Florida ports but this was honestly the worst part of our trip. After we embarked, ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we just couldn't beat the price for a 5-night get away. It was much, much less than the Disney and Holland America cruise we had taken previously in the last year. This was only my third cruise ever and I had ... Read more

Had a great time. We got out of this trip what we expected; a relaxing time. We arrived in New Orleans on Saturday, and explored a little bit of the French Quarter. We also had a great dinner at the #BourbonHouse. We stayed off ... Read more

I am not happy with CCL's new business plan. I sailed on their oldest ship, Holiday, in 2005. It was a better cruise. Below is a copy of my review on the main CCL board. "I have read numerous posts here about poor Carnival quality. ... Read more

We chose this cruise, because New Orleans is a short drive from our home in Memphis. There were six of us, and the convenience of being able to drive was important. Triumph is the sister ship to Freedom, which we've sailed on before, so ... Read more

I have been on over 20 cruises. 10 of them with Carnival. This trip was a short girls getaway. There were 5 of us ages 43-70. Keep in mind, Carnival is not a luxury cruise line and the Triumph is certainly showing her age. Personally l ... Read more

This was mine and my girlfriends first cruise so I read a lot of reviews about the Triumph and now realize that most people are too picky and complain to much. We enjoyed our 5 night cruise and did not want to get off the boat. We enjoyed ... Read more

I have sailed on Carnival Liberty (1st) 3 on fantasy and this one on Triumph and I was very disappointed. We actually shelled out the extra for a Suite for the 1st time and even though it was nice it was nothing special. Only slightly ... Read more

We sailed out of New Orleans on the Carnival Triumph. We had FTTF and the embarkation process went super smoothly for us. Our luggage was waiting at our door as soon as we boarded and went directly to our room which also was ready. ... Read more

Took this cruise for my honeymoon, my husband and I loved it. The boat is big so I am sure we didn't get to see everything. The service was awesome and the food is equally as good. The bar drinks were very good and bartenders were usually ... Read more

I don't know where to even start. We were in a wedding on the boat, then went on the cruise with the wedding party, bride and groom, and about 40 other people. The wedding was complete chaos... The Carnival "coordinator" was ... Read more

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

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
