We were traveling with two groups we had booked.  I think everyone had a good time and cruise went smoothly for them.  We have been to Cozumel many times so we did something different and enjoyed it.

Smooth sailing !!!!!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Triumph | Sail Date:

Sailed on April 21 st on carnival Triumph and had wonderful time!!  Wonderful smooth sailing and beautiful weather.  Lots of variety of entertainment on board.  Had very noisy active areas for lots of people watching and also had quiet areas so it offered lots of versatility !  Food was pretty good, hamburger place delicious and loved 24 hour pizza and ice cream for in between snacks . Very hard workers all over ship and cleaning was their priority.  Inside stateroom was very nice and just what we needed as only slept there. Overall great experience and I would recommend this for anyone wanting a change of scenery and to relaxing.

Very good first cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Triumph | Sail Date:

The staff were prompt and always polite.  The food was very good, especially the dining rooms.  The entertainment seem good but rough seas prevented some of the shows from performing. The balcony was a good choice for us to relax, have breakfast, or watch the sunset.

MY Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Triumph | Sail Date:

Was not happy with the cruise. One of my friends that was on the cruise has been on six cruises and said it was the worst one she had been on. This was my first and it was not fun. The food was good but nothing much was going on during the cruise. Carnival would not give me 25 dollars of on board credit that was promised to me, my room was not cleaned one day and there is two bottles of water in your room which I opened one and used and was charged $4.31 for it. In the mornings you could not get breakfast till after 7:00 am. I will probley never go on another cruise.

Parking the hardest part!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Triumph | Sail Date:

very enjoyable.  Took my husband for his birthday and we both had a fret reading time.  We drove to the terminal and parking was definitely the hardest part of the whole trip.  Lesson learned next time we will cab it.

<img class='agent-replacement' src='/images/hideagent.png'> mishandled dining arrangements

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Triumph | Sail Date:

Sailed on 8 day Western Caribbean out of New Orleans in April '16. Overall, the ship's stateroom was tidy and clean, although the toilet smelled like old urine, even after flushing. We had an aft balcony which cost more than side balconies, but was nice to have a little extra room. We traveled with 2 other parties in adjoining staterooms. My biggest complaint is that the dining arrangements that we made at the time of booking were supposed to be linked on the 3 reservations, but booked us with 3 different dining options. We had to spend the first 2 days onboard moving dinner tables and times so that we could all dine together. The other major complaint was that the tendering process at the Roatan stop was very confusing.

Amazing people, dated, smelly ship

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Triumph | Sail Date:

I have all good things to say about the staff of the triumph.  Very friendly and hard working.  The ship itself is dated, needing some serious updating, and on deck 8, where our balcony was, was a distinctive smell of poo.  It was in the hallway and did not disrupt our trip, but was noticeable, and the carpets were discolored.  The ship did not feel all together clean, but was not scary dirty either.  This was a bargain cruise for us, so these were excusable.  Had I paid more, I would have been furious.  Our safe did not work in our stateroom, beds were comfortable.  The entertainment seemed lacking on this cruise.  A lot of comedy, a marriage game show, magic show, and a couple shows we missed because we didn't know what they were.  Mardis Gras something, it was not labeled as a show, so unfortunately we missed it.  We had late dinner, which worked really well on previous cruises, on different lines.  This one however, we felt we missed things because of our dinner.  The sea days were boring.  we found ourselves playing cards on the lido deck, eating ice cream.  There was nothing to do!  The casino was smokey, and you had to walk through there to get to some other parts of the ship.  Not good for me, I'm super sensitive to smoke and still feel like I have a sore throat.  Kids also have to go through there for the Dr Seuss parade and to get to the other parts of the ship as well. The food was pretty good, I'm not going to complain much about that, as I feel it was average.

Every day I would go to the sandwich bar and get smoked salmon without the bagel. I love smoked salmon.

Pack a small bag as a carry on with swim suits, sun block, motion medicine and any other essentials as your bags may not get to your room until nearly 6pm!! We did this, but other families in our group did not and their kids could not swim until 6pm because their swim suits were in their suit cases.
