Not bad, but not really good either

It feels odd to write a review for a ship that is about to pass into cruising history. While the ship will remain, I don't know if reviews of the Triumph will work to inform passengers booked on the ship in it's new ...

Disappointed

Initially very excited but turned quickly when we found over 1/2 passengers on the cruise belonged to “swingers” club. This group overtook every public area on the boat and very inappropriate behaviors/dress. ...

Right for the right cruiser...

I have cruised before on other lines. I knew Carnival’s reputation for budget cruising - I was footing the bill for a party of nine so price was a key determiner. My husband and I blended a family this year - 5 ...

We chose this boat because the price was right and we wanted to go to a city where we could spend a night out prior to cruising. New Orleans was a nice option for this. Though we left in November, the weather was ...

Don't renovate while passengers are on board!!

I booked this trip because it was a decent price but I guess this was because they were working on parts of the ship prior to the dry dock. If I had known this I would have booked the dream instead and had 2 more ...

Just The Facts

I chose this cruise because it left from New Orleans (so we could visit my inlaws), and the price was right at $1300 for a family of 5. Embarkation was hideous, workers were rude, I kept telling my husband I felt ...
