Review for Carnival Triumph to Caribbean - Western

Booked a first cruise for my sister and nephew after having wonderful experiences on another cruise line. Instead of staying with RC decided to do Carnival as it is booked as the "fun" ship. Sailed on the Triumph out of New Orleans. NOW! 1) What's fun about being herded through the terminal like cattle and having custom agents yell at you because you aren't moving at their pace not to ...

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 name (it will be the Carnival Sunrise starting later this year). Still, much about the ship will be the same and many Cruise Critic members are savvy researchers - I'll put this out ...

We picked this cruise because it was over Superbowl weekend. We wanted to watch the big game form the big screen up on deck. We arrived at the port about 30 minutes after our arrival time since we received an email telling us not to arrive early and that boarding would be delayed due to loading of equipment and supplies. The guy managing the line made us rush past other and said you are late, we ...

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. Even cruise director made jokes toward them during entertainerment. Not sure if carnival aware of this but would of requested a refund and not went had we known. Our servers at dinner were ...

The updated staterooms are really beautiful and comfortable. Bathrooms feel larger. Activities were average, except for the last night Mardi party, which was a great way to end the trip. Only negative was the food. Though the service was wonderful, the food was lacking. In fact the most disappointing of any of the past 8 Carnival cruises I have taken. Hopefully this will improve after dry ...

Cruised from New Orleans between Christmas and New Years. Incredible staff try so hard. Food was way better than expected. I really liked 3 out of the 4 dinners I had. Our ocean view cabin on second deck was really spacious. I doubt you get that much sq footage in newer model ships. The few updated experiences they have are good such as the Alchemy Bar and the sports bar (though its way too small ...

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 young adults ages 22-29, two with their spouse/SO’s. First, the positives: the Triumph is an older ship (actually going into dry dock for a facelift in 2019) and if you google it you ...

We chose this cruise because we heard that Carnival was really good for kids. This was very true!! Our 14yo son had a blast once he found other kids to hang out with. It was a very affordable first cruise for our family and we love it. We were anticipating long lines for everything and this was not the case. Everything flowed in a smooth, although sometimes clumsy, way. There were always ...

We chose to do a cruise this year instead of buying presents. We hadn't cruised in 3 years and were wanting to sail again. My wife has sight and mobility issues and we had a wheelchair take us onboard. We got through the check in process very quickly.The carnival employee that pushed the wheel chair was a very nice person. This was our first time cruising from New Orleans and he was able to ...

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 days for my vacation. Many areas were not accessible and there was noise and smells, not what I want to see, hear or smell on my vacation. This ship is very hard to navigate and you felt ...
