3.0 out of 5
Sail Date: December 01, 2009
Ship: Carnival Triumph
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 8 years ago
Ship layout is nice. Rooms and balcony a little smaller than newer class of ships. Minor mantenance issues expected on a 10 year old ship. Overall layout simlar to other Carnival ships so not too hard to figure out where things are. Way too many smokers on this cruise. Probably due to the majority being locals from New Orleans.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Typically good but not excellent as you would expect when they must feed 2000 people.


3 out of 5
Same as always. "Big Easy" show has been improved.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Jeorge, the cruise director is very good, very funny. Room stewards very good and very friendly.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Had some water leaks from broken pipes that flooded the stairs on the second day.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Balcony smaller than Conquest class. Closet door would not close all the way. Other than that, rooms are as expected.

Pros: Staff was wonderful and Key West and Nassau are great ports.

Cons: Ship needs some maintenance. Freeport is not a good port.

Recommends Carnival Triumph? Yes!
