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

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

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

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

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
