4 Night Western Caribbean

I love cruising. However the food is not the best. In fact, it was some of the worst food I have ever eaten. In addition, the napkins smell and look like cleaning rags. The staff as always are wonderful. More onboard entertainment could be improved upon.

First of all, this was my first cruise and I am very happy that I chose to sail on the Carnival Triumph. I read a lot of reviews and they were just about split saying this cruise ship was the worse and others saying it was ok to great. I had an awesome steward, great experiences with the dining and felt welcomed by all the Triumph crew members. They definitely go out of their way to make people feel special, like learning your name, remembering the things you like and dislike and they are very accommodating.

Family Cruise for Mom

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

Our cruise started off on a bad foot with the stateroom bathroom not draining and obviously not cleaned before we got to it.  The door leading to the balcony did not work properly and it took almost 4 hours to get someone to fix it.  After 2.5 hours of trying to reach someone I had to go to the service desk to try and get help.  The door to my brother's room could not be opened because the closet door broke and was blocking the main door to the stateroom.  Our arrival time was for 11:30; bags were dropped at 10:00 am, we did not get luggage until almost 8 that evening.  It was a wasted afternoon awaiting our luggage as all luggage is staged outside your stateroom door and not secured.  Once these issues were corrected the staff was amazing and very helpful.  Unfortunately I will never sail on a Carnival cruise line again.  The paled in comparison to Princess cruise lines.

For my first cruise, I thought it was wonderful. The entertainment was great, the staff were friendly and everything ran very smoothly. The food was a slight disappointment but nothing to complain about. I would certainly cruise the Triumph again.

First time cruiser with young kids

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

First, the cruise was kept very clean. The attendants were quick to keep things orderly and the crew assisted us with anything we needed. The food was first class and available all the time. The cruise was a wonderful experience. The only down side I noticed was the long wait for the elevator, expensive spa treatments, I didn't get to use because of the price), and not enough lounge chairs by the pool. It is a great vacation for the price and is safer when traveling with children. I would recommend it for families and children.Happy

Cruising Is Not For Me

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

I'm glad there are so many people who cruise, otherwise, a lot of people would not have jobs, but let me just tell you............CRUISING IS NOT FOR ME!!!   I was miserable from day 2.  The stinchy smell of our cabin's bathroom as well as the hallway and other restrooms on board was almost unbearable for me.  I felt dirty the entire time.  The cruise director announcements could not be heard above all the noise of people and/or ship noise.  The food, as beautifully displayed as it was, was not delectable.  Having heard so much about all the wonderful food, I was shocked at how really distasteful it was.   My nephew actually lost 9 pounds on this cruise because he did not like any of the food.  I did not lose any weight, but neither did I gain any.  I survived off of ice cream.  As I said, I'm happy for those who love cruising, but I don't!!    I took my 13 year old nephew and 7 year old niece who were bored to pieces after day 1.  The outdoor Dive in Theater would have been really great except for the fact that the screen had several blacked out spots during each movie we saw.  I can honestly say that the crew was GREAT;  other than that, I'm just not impressed and would not take another cruise of any kind even if it was free.  Nervous

Carnival Triumph Graduation 2017 Cruise

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

I enjoyed everything about the cruise.The food was in the dining room, The London, each night was absolutely delicious.  The only issue I had was with the configuration of the serving stations on the lido deck.  There wasn't enough space to move about comfortably.  It was a challenge for when people were standing in the food lines and people were trying to pass throughout the dining area.

First cruise

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Staff was nice. Food was good. However, all the extras, spa haircut and especially drinks, are way to expensive. If you wanted to eat at the buffet, the wait time was long. But seems to be the norm with all the people. All in all I probably wouldn't elect to take another cruise

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!
