San Juan to Galveston

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

This was a wonderful cruise on the Carnival Triumph.  Everything was great.  Great food, great service, great island stops.

 

Rough Seas the last day at sea but 10 out of 11 were great cruising days and Carnival does not have control of the winds. .  

 

Overall Fabulous trip. Love

same food over and over

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

too many stops in a row, could be reconfigured to give more balance, also the one day we had to be up the earliest, they had the most late night activities the night before, and when we had 2 days at sea nothing was planned

Best Carnival Cruise out of Galveston

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

My wife and I took the first half last year and the second half back to Galveston this year. The stops are just amazing! The Eastern Caribbean Islands are just wonderful. Each stop a bit different giving variety you just can't get with coastal cruises. Unfortunately this cruise will not be offered out of Galveston for at least the next two years, so I was told. If you can find this itinerary out of another port, book it!

great cruise, not so great room

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

We sailed out of Galveston Jan 16th, 2016. We stayed in a balcony room on the 8th floor/starboard/forward. With the history of this boat, I expected it to be immaculate and appear completely refurbished. Not so much. The bed (2 twins pushed together) had a ridge down the middle that felt like bare metal w/very little padding, and both mattresses had huge dents in the middle. We did not sleep well. The bathroom was an orange-y/pink color straight out of 1974. There was a sewer-esque smell that lingered in the hallway the entire cruise. Other than these issues, it was a great cruise. No major snags at all. The ports were amazing (we enjoyed Bonaire, in particular).

Carnival Triumph Southern Caribbean Cruise

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

The Cruise was just the right length. We landed at great islands and the excursions were fun and informative. We had four other couples at dinner and made some new friends and a lot of laughs. Can't think of anything I would change.

Time to improve old ship.

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

Ship was old (1999) and you could see it. Refurbishment in March is certainly needed. Food OK but photographers 15, blocking the only walkway from front to back of ship (deck 5) a nuisance. In staterooms hairdryers had a capacaty 600W that should have been changed to about 2000W years back if ladies intend to get their hair dried in less for the elegant evenings where the at least 20% should have been directed to the Lido dining by the Head Waiters at the dining room entrance. Shows fully OK, it is not too much just talk-show where the guests are the actors.

Awesome cruise & ports!

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

This was the first leg of back to back cruises from Galveston to Puerto Rico & back, a total of 21 days. It was absolutely wonderful! Weather was great, all the ports were great to visit, with friendly people, lots to see, taxis you could trust that were reasonable, beautiful beaches, & good places to shop, eat, & drink. The excursions we took were lots of fun. The ship itself was beautiful, service was excellent everywhere, staff were all very friendly, activities fun, & entertainment was great. The singers & dancers are absolutely amazing. If I had to come up with z criticism, it would be that you couldn't see out the dirty Windows. :) thank you so much for a truly great time!

Saw some beautiful places

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

We chose this cruise for the itinerary and were pleased to see some of the less frequently visited spots in the Southern Caribbean. The evening entertainment in the main showroom was some of the best we've ever encountered. The stateroom was pretty typical except the controls for cooling/heating were hidden on the ceiling vent. The weather was cool the first few days and I found it difficult to keep warm. Dining room service was good, food not as special as we've sometimes had(no escargot) although mostly very good. They have eliminated tablecloths with the exception of formal nights (3), and dancing waiters most nights got a little tiresome. The buffet food was mostly the same from day to day. The Blue Iguana and Guy's Hamburger place were always a nice change of pace. Daytime activities though were mostly limited to Trivia.

I'd pass.

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

The ship smelled like dirty back of the house kitchen.  It was my first cruise and I dont think I'll ever go on another because of the experience.  The food was alright.  Pizza was horrible, but the drinks were good and dinner was ok, except they didn't give enough vegetables with the entré.

Cruising in January

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

The cruise was good.  This is my 5th cruise with Carnival.  I really enjoyed my time.  The crew was good.  They kept the entertainment at a very high level.  Easy embarkment was a plus.

Third Mate

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

Guys Burger is the best quick food grab.

Bring a big cup to take advantage of the free water, tea and lemonade so that you can take it with you because most of these stations are on the Lido deck.
