Awesome Experience with a few hiccups

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

We loved this cruise and would definitely do it again.  The dining room experience was awesome as well as the activities (i.e.., comedy show, Dr. Seuss).  The boat needs some upgrading.  The bathroom needs some grout work, our AC output wasn't to our liking (too hot - Room 7305), and there were "funny" smells in the hallways on occasion.  But I would do it all over again. 

 

Staff at Camp Ocean were AWESOME!  Our dining room servers were the BEST - (Branco)!

i had the best time while on this cruise. I stayed busy the whole time but if I wanted to just relax and be by myself then I could. I met a lot of new friends and have already thought about where I would like to go next time.

The Carnival Triumph was an amazing first cruise experience. 4 of us were on the 5 night cruise from New Orleans and it was the first for all. It was beautiful, the crew was amazing, the ports were awesome. I do not have anything negative to say about the entire trip, we all had an amazing time!

It had been about 15 years since I last cruised, and I am happy to see that it was as fun as I ever had.  It looked like the issues that I did have from back then had been addressed well:  The food was unquestionably better and consistently good. The ship staff was excellent, friendly and outgoing with literally no exceptions.  The bands entertaining on the promenade deck were simply outstanding! Leaving from New Orleans for 4 nights, we found that the cruisers were largely from Louisiana and the surrounding area.  Not that it was a problem but its always nice meeting people from all over on a cruise. The issues we had were really minor but at least worth mentioning:  The wifi was poor - considering you pay for it, we never had a consistent, reliable or fast connection.  With so many wonderful things for free, when you do charge for something, and it isn't cheap, it should work reliably. The other thing is a small thing but, while we absolutely loved the cruise director Jess, we felt like the on deck fun could have been more varied. There was the obligatory hairy chest contest and ice carving but most of the rest of the entertainment on deck consisted of line dances.  No doubt they were fun and I think people who love that sort of thing were having a blast, but I think some more creativity would benefit in having a bigger variety of fun things happening on the sun decks.  All in all, we REALLY had a great time. One last thing, if you can, get the balcony room - it really enhanced the value of our trip

This was our second cruise but definitely our best. My husband and I along with two of my three children as well as my sons girlfriends family shares this fabulous vacation experience. Our favorite part was meeting each night for dinner and discussing what we all did that day. The dining staff was so awesome we really got yo be close they remembered everything about us throughout the cruise and made an effort to get us involved in the dining fun. We are definitely going again and can't wait to book!

Cruise with 15 yr. old son

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Overall the cruise was fun. The food was average. The ship could use some updates and although you could see people constantly cleaning  the ship always seemed a little dirty. The big issue that I had was that in the areas that kid/teens hung out (like the basketball court and mini-golf) there was no attendants. There were kids throwing golf balls from the lower deck which had the mini golf up to the deck where the basketball court was. My son got hit in the mouth and started bleeding. Kids were also throwing the balls and clubs off the deck into the water and using clubs to smash cups. Carnival really needs to have 1 to 2 people monitoring these decks at all times before someone really gets hurt.

Carnival triumph, Cozumel and Progresso

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

The cuise ship overall was great, but I there are a couple of things you should know before you book a cruise on the triump. 1) The ship is old and in need of repair. So if your looking for the stylish digs, you should look into another ship, but if a little wear and tear doesn't bother you than this is the ship for you. 2) The rooms have no refrigerators in them, however if you bring a small cooler you can get all the ice you need to keep things nice and cool Happy. 3)  As far as destinations, I preferred Progresso over cozumel. Cozumel is very beautiful but pricey. Progresso is a up and coming tourist attraction, but is more affordable. Lastly I just want to say the price of the cruise was the best for a 5 day crusie, and well worth it! I would consider taking this cruise again.

Good time

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We had a good time. Cabin was very nice and clean. Cabin stewart was fantastic, friendly and helpful. Ship is an older one and it showed in decor and sometimes smells. Most staff members were very nice however unlike our last cruise some were not and most were not nearly as attentive. Still overall good times. Shows were really good. Food average, room service food and staff above average. Trips off the ship were amazing.

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.

Guys Burger is the best quick food grab.

Did you eat to much & you hate the gym... Walk that track on the upper deck. There is something special about walking in the strong winds off the sea. The view will almost make you forget how many laps you've done. Before you know it your 2 mile work turns into 3 miles. Just enjoy!
