The Carnival Triumph is "The Ship" for those who love non-stop activity. The ship accommodates 2,642 passengers and a crew of 1,000. Triumph is the perfect cruise ship for singles as well as families and retired people, since there are activities for every member of the family. Passengers who want a lot of peace and quiet should probably book a cruise on a smaller vessel. A cruise on Carnival Triumph will appeal to passengers who want a great cruise experience, but want to stay within a budget. Most of the lounges are on the Promenade Deck and passengers can stroll by or sit and people watch. During the summer and vacations, a lot more children will be onboard. However, there are numerous spots for adults to socialize where you won't find lots of kids. The staff is very capable, but due to the number of passengers onboard, there isn't a great deal of personalized service.
- Several entertainment venues
- Late night spot open until early morning
- Appeals to a wide variety of passengers
The two dining rooms on Triumph are London and Paris. Both restaurants are on two levels. Passengers are assigned to seating according to their stateroom. Four seatings are available. The breakfast and lunch buffets offer specialty orders and the new menu features sumptuous entrees such as Chateaubriand, rack of lamb or lobster. The ship's pizzaria is better than you'll find on any cruise ship and serves delicious Caesar salads. Most passengers have breakfast and lunch at the Lido, adjacent to the pool, with dining al fresco. Room service is available 24 hours a day; however, the selections are limited.
Entertainment and Nightlife
All the guests sing along at the Big Easy Piano Bar. Popular night spots on the Triumph are the Venezia jazz and cabaret room, the two deck Hollywood Dance Club disco and the Sports Bar with seven big screen TV's; all showing ESPN and video poker machines at the bar. The ship also has a wonderful wine bar.
Of all the Carnival ships, the Destiny Class was the first to have private balconies with most of the cabins and the rooms are larger than they are on most other lines. Many of the cabins also accommodate third or fourth passengers, making Carnival a popular option with families and groups traveling together. A large number of "family" staterooms are interconnecting and are closeby the children's center. Color TV's with CNN, ESPN, and movies are in each stateroom. A minibar and soft, terry bathrobes are in the Oceanview staterooms and suites.
The fitness center and spa are perfect for fitness enthusiasts who work out everyday. The gym will not only help to keep you fit, but has floor to ceiling windows, offering a fantastic panoramic view. Hydraulic weight machines, treadmills, stairmasters, stationary bikes and rowing machines are all available in the fitness center. The spa is Steiner's of London. A jogging track encircles the pool. The kids will love the 214 foot water slide.
