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

Went on the cruise to celebrate a friend's birthday. Boarding was super quick! Mainly because we drank and visited spots in the French Quarter before making it to the cruise port. I believe we boarded around 3:30PM and there were zero ... 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

We had a group of 18 family members including 11 first timers. It was a little hectic getting 5 cabins together but we were all on the same deck with an elevator between the two groups it worked out well as the elevator became our meeting ... 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

The staff on the Triumph were not very friendly. One of the photographers actually told me that one of my photos was blurry because "I didn't step forward"...The services was poor and I think that was because the workers were ... 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

I have cruised with carnival over 10 times in the past 7 years. I took a few on the Elation and Fantasy. I cruised once on the Sunshine and the Dream. This will be my second AND LAST cruise on the Triumph. We had problems the first ... Read more

This was my 10th Carnival cruise and 2nd on the Triumph. We arrived in New Orleans the night before to walk dogs at Villalobos Rescue Center where they film the TV show "Pitbulls & Parolees." Embarkation was fairly smooth. 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

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
