Ship Facts: Carnival Triumph Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Triumph Deck Plans
Great Time and Vacation
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary with a five night cruise. Neither of us had been on a cruise in many years, so although we were familiar with a cruise, we were somewhat like first-timers.

We flew into Houston's Hobby Airport and used Carnival's bus transfer to the port. It was beyond easy and before we knew it our luggage was being taken by porters for check-in. The rest of embarkation was just as easy, as we were on board within 20 minutes of arriving.

Upon boarding, we took time to explore the whole ship. To us, the ship was in great shape with no glaring problems. We then had lunch and we both headed to the one of the outdoor grills and enjoyed a hamburger and fries. Afterwards, we headed to our room.

We had a balcony room at the front of the ship, starboard side. The room was clean, odor free, and fairly spacious. Our balcony afforded us great views of Galveston as we headed out to sea.

Once at sea, we did not find the ship crowded in anyway, as we were able to navigate throughout the ship without problems all week. There were, of course, some lines but nothing too long.

We had late dining and found the food service terrific and the entertainment at dinner fun. The food was not five star, but somewhere between three star and four star and was enjoyed. We usually ate breakfast outside, after picking up made-to-order omelets, which were great. Lunch was the sandwich grill for me and chop sticks grill for my wife. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed the food.

We found the staff throughout the cruise to be helpful and friendly, with the exception of the spa area, which caused us not to visit.

Clearly we had a great time and would recommend the Triumph.
