I have been cruising for many years now, with both Royal Caribbean and Carnival. This was my most disappointing cruise so far. Embarkation (not a Carnival problem): The port of Gavlveston has changed their operations since our last ... Read more

This was my 8th cruise. We actually had a suite on this sailing since we were going to be gone for 11 days. We were really excited because we are Gold members and sailing in a suite gives us Priority Boarding. However, when we got to ... Read more

We loved our 11 day journey from Galveston to San Juan. Most of the folks on the cruise were staying to do the 10 day return trip and we wish we could have done this too. We have taken 7 cruises and always on Carnival so we cannot ... Read more

Just got back Nov 4, from 11 day cruise. Ports were great, with exception of Martinique, which was celebrating All Souls Day - everything pretty much closed down - and we were told Carnival didn't know..So that port day was a waste. ... Read more

Was extremely disappointed and will never use this cruise line again. The food was horrible and so was all service. We saw our statesman who took care of our room only once the whole trip. Room service took at least 30-45 minutes getting ... Read more

From Galveston my first choice for a cruise line is Royal Caribbean. However for me price is a consideration, so I often go on Carnival. For Galveston/Carnival my first ship choice is Magic, but the people we went with chose a date where ... Read more

We just returned from being on the Triumph on the 15th. My husband had never been on a cruise before so I thought it would make a great 40th birthday present. Had it not been for the massive amounts of alcohol he imbibed I'm sure it would ... Read more

My husband and I arrived in Galveston around 9:45 am. We parked at The Lighthouse Parking Lot which offered covered parking at a reasonable price and super friendly staff. This was our 3rd Carnival cruise (2nd time on Triumph) but the ... Read more

This was a family vacation- with 6 people. We drove to the port and left our luggage with a porter. This was fast and easy. We arrived at the port about 11:45 am and we were able to board the ship by 12:30 pm. We were prepared for longer ... Read more

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

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 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

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
