Ship Facts: Carnival Triumph Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Triumph Deck Plans
Carnival Triumph - Eastern Caribbean
This was 5th cruise for hubby and me and 4th for our 2 children- ages 16 and 13. We flew in to Ft Lauderdale the night before and stayed at the Sheraton for a great deal we got on hotline. Rented a car and dropped it at Miami airport-free shuttle to cruise port from Alamo. We arrived at around 12:30 and were onboard by 1:00- I went directly to shore tour desk as I was worried all of the cabanas would be booked for Half Moon Cay- I was the 1st one to book one so I had my choice. Once the rooms were open we went to look around and found this to be a much bigger room than ones we have had on Fantasy class ships. (I believe it was 210 sq ft compared to 185) we had an oceanview and had TONS of storage space for 4 people. We actually had extra space in the closets. The bathroom had a huge medicine cabinet to store stuff (after I thoroughly wiped it down with Clorox wipes). We went to dinner in the dining room every evening and the food and service were excellent. Personally, I wasn't that fond of the chocolate melting cake but I always found a great dessert to satisfy me. Buffets for lunch and breakfast were average, but hey, I didn't have to cook or clean up - so I can't really complain about anything! My kids did not participate in Camp carnival or club 02- we really kept ourselves busy on our own- and we actually like spending time with our kids since we are all so busy in our regular lives. We did see the magician and the hypnotist - both were great shows. The ship looked clean and carpet replacement was ongoing in the halls. I think this is a beautiful ship compared to the Fantasy and Fascination we have sailed in the past. They were more over the top, and the Triumph was classy. Half Moon Cay was great - we did rent a cabana - one of only 2 rented that day! It was overcast and not a hot as it was last year when we went - so we probably would have been fine without it- but it was a nice indulgence. St Thomas- booked a tour with Sunny Liston- great fun - but kind of scary - they drive fast on the island and very steep roads! San Juan- took a tour from one of the many tour operators outside of the port- he took us to both Forts and waited 1 1/2 hours while we toured El Morro fort- for only $10 pp- we gave him a great tip and he was very happy. Grand Turk- hubby and kids swam with stingrays as they did last year- had a great time- I sat this one out and laid on the beach. Overall- loved the cruise and the ship was beautiful- but we are better on a shorter cruise-we got homesick. Will definitely cruise with Carnival again
