Carnival Triumph features 1,379 cabins in five main categories -- insides, outsides, balconies, mini-suites and suites -- but there is some variation within each grouping. For instance, there are inside cabins featuring upper-lower bed configurations, side-by-side twins that can be converted to a king and those featuring a view of a walkway. There are 31 ADA-compliant cabins across all categories.
If there's one area where Triumph falls short, it's in the cabins. Decorated in salmon tones and copper-colored metal, the rooms feel dated and could use an upgrade. The line is in the process of adding flat-screen TVs, and all rooms should have them by the end of 2016.
Decor aside, the standard rooms are more spacious than most, at 185 square feet. Each room has a vanity and stool, a chair (for inside) or a sofa and table, two twin beds that can convert into a king, a TV and a safe. There are plenty of drawers and closets for storage, and suitcases can fit under the bed. The beds only receive one nightstand. Outlets fit American plugs.
The peachy pink palette continues into the tiled bathroom. There's a mirrored medicine cabinet, a shower with a clingy curtain and, oddly enough, a European-style "vacuum" hair dryer attached to the wall. There are dispensers for shower gel and shampoo.
Interior: Triumph has 522 standard interior cabins and an additional 18 that have upper and lower bunks. Inside, outside and balcony cabins typically feature 185 square feet of interior space.
Oceanview: There are 317 oceanview cabins, most at 185 square feet. There are, however, a few decks of 220-square-foot oceanview cabins, including rooms 1001, 1002, 1003 and 1004, and categories PT, 6A, 6B and 6C -- good choices if you're looking for more room.
Balcony: Triumph has 472 standard balcony cabins, with verandahs ranging from 35 to 75 square feet, depending on category. The average balcony has enough room for two chairs and a table -- nice for reading, but you wouldn't want to have a meal out there. Category 8F balconies, located near the spa on Deck 11, feature 195 square feet of interior space.
Junior Suite: Passengers looking for a little more room should consider booking one of the 42 Junior Suites. These rooms are 275 square feet, with 35-square foot balconies.
Suite: Triumph has eight Grand Suites, which are each 345 square feet with an 85-square-foot balcony. The suites have shower-tub combos and a few perks, such as priority embarkation/debarkation.
