Default Triumph

Wondering if anybody could give me details on the Triumph? We are considering this cruise for spring break with our kids.
We went on the rcc navigator of the seas last year and loved it.
Most travel agents think we will be dissappointed with this boat. We are not hard to please.
Thanks for any info.

We are sailing the Triumph Dec 11 2004 and will let y'all know how we liked it, after talking to many people and reading countless reviews we decided to try Carnival again since last CCL trip was in 1990 on the Fantasy for our honeymoon, I liked it wife likes Celebrity(I dont) way too formal for me.
We have cruised RCCL mostly and liked it alot (voyager class ships) and Princess (Golden) once and only once-NEVER again.
Feel free to email me after our return on Dec 18 or anytime is ok.

hum I find that hard to believe, that most TA's think you will be disappointed. What are their reasonings. Why do they believe you will be disappointed? Especially if you are taking your kids. Carnival is directed toward the younger ones... how old are your kids?
And in case you're interested, I have a few pictures posted in a photo album of the Triumph. If you click on Photo Galleries you can search for an album called "Spring Break 2003".

I doubt you will be disappointed with this ship. Its large and its beautiful, and its full of fun activities. The crew is fantastic. And the cabins even seem a little bit larger then on other ships. So if you like all that, then I don't see how you could be disappointed.

I say go for it! Out of the 7 cruises I've been on. The Carnival Triumph Spring Break cruise of 2003 was THE BEST!!! it was my favorite cruise.


Happy Cruising!

We have cruised on CCL what 16 times? Two of which were on the Triumph and both times we had a wonderful time. The vessel is quite large at 101,000+ GRT with 14 passenger decks. It is 893' long and 116' wide and will hold approx 2,600-2,750 passengers double occupancy. 11 bars and 3 pools plus a kiddy pool and numerous areas for entertainment you can always find something to do while onboard. Plenty of deck space to sunbath as well as shady areas to just relax and maybe read a book. The also have a fantastic gym/spa, etc as well as areas for kids only and they even have the disco set aside at times just for the teens. The shows are wonderful with great sight lines and the staff has always been wonderful to us. Do I think you will enjoy it? Yes. Better than RCI? I don't know. The Voyager Class has lots going for it as well but the Triumph definately has better deli, buffet, pizza, food in genertal, entertainment, and we liked the staff better. The cabins are also larger for the standard cabin. You might wish to check out the readers reviews on this ship on this website as well as the 'professional' reviews of this ship by staff memebrs who have sailed on her.
