Took 3 friends on this cruise to celebrate a cancer remission. I was nervous once I read some reviews but we were happy with the cruise. The food and entertainment were both better than we expected. We did not eat on lido deck but it ... 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

I liked my cruise but you could tell there were some changes to staff and service. For the most part everything was ok. For one thing, I had the Faster to the fun. So our luggage was supposed to be there before we got to the room. It ... Read more

We chose this cruise as a last minute choice. We wanted to get away for a few days to rest and relax and this was available and reasonably priced. The staff were excellent, absolutely amazing. We had a table at the back of the dining ... Read more

Second time on the Triumph. Once before the incident and now. They have made some great improvements to the overall quality of the ship and she is still a fun place to be. My biggest and really only complaint is the smoking in the ... 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

The staff was very friendly. The shows were excellent (especially the magic show). The dining experience was wonderful. Our room steward was helpful, kind and picked up on our daily routines for making up the room and replenishing ice. The ... Read more

SUMMARY: This was a last-minute decision, my first Carnival cruise. I was hoping to read a book, have fun activities for my DD 13, and basically hide for a few days out on the water. That was the extent of my expectations and I am happy ... Read more

We had a group of 11 on the March 7th cruise on Carnival Triumph with a total of 5 rooms, two on deck 2 and three on deck 6. We were stopped on day one to ask if we needed anything and to see if we wanted turn down services, etc. We ... Read more

I must admit I was very nervous about this cruise, especially given all the bad reviews recently. We are a family of four and first time cruisers. Overall, we had a great trip and would definitely cruise again. The embarkation ... 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

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

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

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
