Ship Facts: Carnival Triumph Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Triumph Deck Plans
Quick Get-a-way to the Western Caribbean
We have been out of Galveston before and been on the Carnival line before. This was our first time on the Triumph.

Our embarkation took about an hour from the dropping off of luggage, parking, and checking in.

We got to the Lido deck for lunch OK and to our cabin OK. The Deli had good New York style sandwiches.

We did not see our friends the next morning for breakfast...they could not find the Paris dining room. Though they did eventually show up. As we explored we realized the ship was a nightmare to get around on. No through passageways. Deck 5 and 9 you could go from forward to aft but had to weave your way through and around things. The outside promenade deck was only half a ship long.. No walking around the ship. A place to go sit and read or lean on the rail.

The food was average but the service good. Best dessert "The Chocolate Melting Cake"

The entertainment was OK but too loud for us.

We had a hard time finding quiet public areas to visit. All the way aft on the Lido deck was ok, not much traffic, also upstairs in the buffet was also fairly traffic free.

We got what we expected with the exception of the confusion getting around.

We like the port of Galveston, We drive down, park close, checking in has to be timed right. Over all from arrival to getting to the buffet about an hour.

Coming back the port was close because of fog and our docking was delayed about four hours this made disembarking and the car loaded a nightmare. Getting off the ship and clearing customs was no problem. Being in the loading area while passengers for the next cruise were arriving was bad. We were off the ship at 1pm and didn't pull away from the curb till 3pm. The port of Galveston needs two areas for embarking and disembarking.
