We started with the rudest shuttle bus driver imaginable at the terminal. The process to get onboard went really fast and smooth. Our cabin was nice, our tv was missing the cable cord but the cabin boy had maintenance fix it immediately. ... Read more

This was my second, and last cruise with Carnival. This ship was HORRIBLY outdated (we found out after boarding that it is about to be dry-docked for refurbishing). We got the "grand suite" that was anything but grand. There ... Read more

My families experience was mostly positive aboard the Triumph. Embarkation was a bit like being herded like cattle even if you show up at your specified time. But nothing too bad at all. Debarkation was super simple. Plenty of ... Read more

Took the Carnival Triumph out of Galveston for a 5 night to Cozumel and Progresso - I LOVED the new stagger boarding process - much faster and less confusion - when we got on the boat we were missing our 3 waters (we are all VFIP ... Read more

This is our second cruise with Carnival and it is our last. We knew what better to expect this time around so we were better prepared. The food started out on the first night very promising. We had high hopes of what to expect but it ... Read more

This was my 5th and final cruise with Carnival. First of all I brought 20 friends on this cruise. I sold Carnival 10 rooms, and when I ask for a discount, or a On Board credit, or something!!! they said no !! That was over $10,000 in rooms ... Read more

We are Platinum level Carnival cruisers so we've been doing this for a while - and I'm beginning to be irritated by the cuts to the level of service on Carnival to keep the prices at rock bottom. So if you're looking for a low price ... Read more

I rarely ever write a review and have never written a poor review. However, we sailed on the Carnival Triumph and I totally regret spending my money on this trip. We had a balcony room that was so cramped we couldn't move around without ... Read more

This is our 4th cruise, 3rd with Carnival. We did a lot of first on this cruise. We went out of Galveston instead of New Orleans or Miami. We finally got that balcony. And it was a Aft wrap around (6434). And thee only port we haven't been ... Read more

We booked our trip about a year in advance. I got a great deal for 5 of us sisters in 1 cabin (we were going cheap). Next time I would probably break down and do 2 cabins, but $175 each for the last 2 people for a 7 day cruise was too ... Read more

We travel with a group every January. This year we chose to take one leg of a Journeys cruise. We chose this because it stopped in a couple places we've not gone before; Bonaire and Grenada. We stayed in a premium balcony cabin on deck ... Read more

This was our first cruise on Carnival..to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday. It will be remembered, but not for all the right reasons. We have been traveling and cruising for many years, and this trip was at the right time and went to the ... Read more

This was our first cruise on Carnival and second overall. Last time was 30th Anniversary back in 2001 on Princess up Inside Passage to Seward Alaska. It was like night and day comparison. This was seemed like more fun, as it probably ... Read more

We have been sailing with Carnival since 1989 and this cruise was so disappointing that we are now looking at changing to another cruise line. We have always loved Carnival and been vocal supporters of the line and experience. However ... Read more

This was our second time cruising, our first was a year ago on the Carnival Ecstasy out of Miami. I'm not sure if Carnival in general has changed in the past year or if its just this ship but the food was absolutely terrible! You will not ... Read more

The best things about this cruise were our steward, Linda (loved her towel animals), the gym (it was very nice), and our one excursion to Casa del Playa in Cozumel. Everything else was pretty bad. Getting on the boat was hell...hours of ... Read more

We are frequent cruisers and familiar with both Carnival and their sister company Costa. None of the perks or quality that we had experienced on previous cruises was present for this vacation. 1. We had Priority boarding that had us ... Read more

Carnival Triumph itself was okay, although very limited for younger ages and elders. The only thing you could really do was just lay out or go to the casino. Cozumel was very fun but with only 6 hours to visit, not much could be done. ... Read more
