Overall I must say that we did have a good time. However there were several things that need improvement. The first thing is the bar service. We could not get any service in any of the lounges or the theater and had to find a bar to get ... Read more

First time we took a cruise and really enjoyed it. At first the crowds can be a bit overwhelming but as time goes on it seems to even out. The employees were fantastic. Every interaction with them was a complete pleasure. The music was ... Read more

This was our first cruise. We are Walt Disney World people! We took 11 family members with us ranging in age from 70-4. We had several issues, some of them Carnival's fault and some not. Within a few hours of departure of Galveston, we ... Read more

Although I have several complaints about my most recent cruise with Carnival, I'll try to make this brief. No turn down service on night one, windows and balcony were extremely dirty, sheets were not changed from prior guest (blood spot) ... Read more

We booked on the Triumph Sept 26, 2015 6 women and have been on this ship before the fire. This time the trip was less than desirable, there were no shows at night, everything was centered around buying items off the ship. We had to go ... Read more

We were on the Carnival Triumph for my Wife's Birthday Cruise. This was our first Carnival Cruise. In the past, we only sailed with Norwegian. We decided to try Carnival since we live in Texas and we can drive to Galveston for ... Read more

This was my first cruise. It was my friends 7th. We drove from Dallas to Galveston prior day and stayed at the Gaidos Hotel. An older hotel but has a great pool. Hotel bar was nice and food was just OK. WiFi didn't work. The hotel offered ... Read more

Okay, I have been on many cruises, but this one sure did have the 'Texas' vibe. I have never seen so much camo and jeans on a cruise. It is definitely not a dress up cruise. But, it was a friendly cruise. The bartenders were not pushy, ... Read more

This was our fourth cruise. We've been on the same boat with the same destinations four times. We love to cruise. We go out of the same port at the same time of year every year. This time we had a different cruise director and this time ... Read more

This was our first cruise and definitely will not be our last! The whole crew (everyone) bent over backwards to make your experience a good one. But I especially want to give a shout out to Myranalene & Kadek at the lobby bar. We ate ... Read more

This was our 2nd cruise, but our first with our children. Our children are 10 and 3. We left out of Galveston and were disappointed in the lines to get checked in. Once we were able to do that we didn't have to sit in the waiting room ... Read more

Being a frequent Carnival cruiser I have had enough great experiences with them to know that this ship was severly lacking. The food was subpar - even gross at times. When my 18 y/o who will eat ANYTHING pushes his plate away, you know the ... Read more

When my friend suggested this cruise for a girls get away, we did our research. We found that Triumph has had its share of problems, but the price was really good so we decided to give them a try. We live in Texas so getting to ... Read more

This was our 5th cruise with Carnival, 2nd time leaving from Galveston. We arrived at 11:30am and parked in the carnival lot. We were on the ship by 12:15 without FTTF. In fact the lines were about the same length. Our room wasn't ready ... Read more

Our group ranged in ages from 30-late 40s- two professional couples sans kids. My wife and I travel a lot, and had toyed with the idea of cruising for awhile. Our friends had picked the ship, and we tagged a long. We had all been to Mexico ... Read more

We are in our mid 50's, no kids at home, we took this Cruise during the peak of the season, with our 18 y.o. niece, so we got a really good feel if we'd do it again. My observations were from my experience from the back pool area and ... Read more
