We chose this cruise to celebrate our 41st anniversary(was here 7 years ago). We enjoyed it just as we did 7 years ago. No disappointments as Carnival treated us great and surprised us with champaigne and a beautiful dessert for our anniversary dinner at the steakhouse

This was my 8 year old grand daughter's first time on a cruise ship.  She was impressed with the size and beauty of the Freedom.  We took her on a shore excursion in Progresso and Cozumel(they have excursions child appropriate).  She loved the cabin(she had a bunk bed and loved it).  We had a server named Marjia from Croatia and she spoiled my grand daughter on the service she gave her on the evening meal.  My grand daughter still talks about Marija.  We did not go to camp ocean as my grand daughter loved the pool and loved playing in the cabin.  She loved the shows in the main showroom.  It was an excellent cruise for her.

Carnival Triumph

March 2015 - 12 Night Journey Of Discovery (Galveston Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Triumph

Love Panama, Colombia

We went thru the Panama Canal on the Miracle and this cruise(on Triumph) we got to stand on the canal and actually watch a ship go thru.  Toured a banana plantation and did a rain forest tour and actually got to pet a sloth.  We did this cruise again as we live in Galveston and did not have to fly to New York to get to the canal.  2 stops in Colombia was a great bonus  Only negative thing was is this was dubbed a retirement home cruise as there were mostly senior citizens on board.  Things on the ship were not happening party wise.  They had a new cruise director on Triumph (we been on Triumph 3 times before and loved the cruise director at that time)and he was a dud.  Phony as a 3 dollar bill...full of IT.  Crew was outstanding otherwise.  The captain of the Triumph is a really cool dude!!!

coasterking's Tips

Carnival Breeze Carnival Breeze - The Breeze is a BIG BEAUTIFUL ship. Lots to do and see. The entertainment was great. My favorite was a violin trio that played in the main area. Saw all their shows. We were on Breeze once. If you like the big ships, Breeze is for you. We favor the Conquest ships tho. Smaller.
Cozumel, Mexico - Always love cozumel. Went on a horse drawn carriage tour
Carnival Valor Carnival Valor - Great ship, they got their act together on everything. Been on it 3 times, best trip so far
Seattle, Washington - Been here 7 years ago, so we did what we did not do last time we were here. No excursions
Carnival Legend Carnival Legend - Expect great service and lots of great food and fun
Carnival Magic Carnival Magic - A big ship enjoy it
Carnival Valor Carnival Valor - If you are into history, this ship is themed well. Loved the lightning all round
Galveston, Texas - We live 34 miles from here, so cruising out of Galveston is a breeze(a Carnival Breeze that is)
Carnival Freedom Carnival Freedom - Ship was a great adventure for my granddaughter's first cruise.
Carnival Freedom Carnival Freedom - This is a good ship, being it is in Galveston trading places with I think Triumph, it is like a new adventure checking it out.
Carnival Triumph Carnival Triumph - We live in Galveston and this ship is great for a short notice cruise
Carnival Triumph Carnival Triumph - Don't play trivia pursuit as if you show the staff they had a wrong answer, they say they aren't going to change answer no matter what you show & tell them...set in their ways Need some way to control teen agers...4 a m they were yelling and talking in the halls...sitting on stairs, pushing all elevator only hangs on lido deck not roaming
Carnival Miracle Carnival Miracle - Clean, crew were friendly, lots to do, captain had a message every day at noon to keep us up to date
Carnival Triumph Carnival Triumph - love those hamburgers!!!
