5 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 15, 2012
Ship: Carnival Triumph
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 5 years ago

It was definitely an older ship. If you've never been on a cruise before, you probably wouldn't notice.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Always eat in the dining room and you should never have a problem. The buffets are never that great and the people are always rude and pushy.


3 out of 5
Seems like they try to pack 7 days of entertainment into a 5 day cruise. Lots of shows overlapped so it was difficult to see everything. Maybe just some better scheduling would be nice.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Most of the crew was awesome, with the exception of the excursion desk who didn't really help with a problem we had with an excursion. Carnival crews are usually great.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
Seemed to be a smaller ship. Needs some updating for sure.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
Size of the room was comparable to previous ships, but could definitely use some updating.

Pros: I wasn't at work

Cons: The ship and Cozumel excursion

Recommends Carnival Triumph? No.
