Carnival Triumph is a giant, floating monument to fun. Filled with
restaurants, lounges, and entertainment options a'plenty. Sounds
like a Triumph to us, so it's no wonder this ship got the name
CARNIVAL TRIUMPH. It's the ultimate in relaxation and adventure,
with lots of awesome amenities, a spa, a friendly casino and lots
of other great stuff.
four swimming pools, seven whirlpools, tons of bars, a giant casino
and a daily schedule of activities that will make your head spin,
the Triumph lives up to Carnival's "Fun Ships" motto with
During the day on the Carnival Triumph, casual attire is the order of the day. We suggest shorts, sundresses, tank tops, etc. for the ladies, and for men; shorts, polo shirts, T-shirts, etc. will do. We suggest you wear rubber-soled, low heeled or flat shoes for extra traction while onboard. The use of any footwear with wheels, including but not limited, to Heelys© shoes, is prohibited on board our ships. For dining you may want to dress up a bit and/or bring along a light sports jacket or cardigan.
Most evenings we have a Cruise Casual dress code, but there are those Cruise Elegant evenings one or two nights throughout your “Fun Ship” voyage, where you will have the opportunity to showcase your more elegant attire. For those who want casual attire for dinner time, the Lido Restaurant is open nightly, and has a more relaxed theme. However, shirts and shoes/footwear (flip-flops) must be worn at all times inside the Lido Restaurant.
Both dress codes for the dining rooms are described below.
Cruise Casual Dining Dress Code: Gentlemen - Sport slacks, khakis, jeans (no cut-offs), dress shorts (long), collared sport shirts; Ladies - Casual dresses, casual skirts or pants and blouses, summer dresses, Capri pants, dress shorts, jeans (no cut-offs).
Not permitted in the dining room during the Cruise Casual dinner for ladies and gentlemen: shorts, gym shorts, basketball shorts, beach flip-flops, bathing suit attire, cut-off jeans, sleeveless shirts for men and baseball hats.
Cruise Elegant Dining Dress Code: Gentlemen - Dress slacks, dress shirts. We also suggest a sport coat. If you wish to wear suits and ties or tuxedos, by all means we invite you to do so. Ladies - Cocktail dresses, pantsuits, elegant skirts and blouses; if you‘d like to show off your evening gowns, that's great too!
Not permitted in the dining room during the Cruise Elegant dinner for ladies and gentlemen: shorts, gym shorts, T-shirts, beach flip-flops, bathing suit attire, jeans, cut-off jeans, sleeveless shirts for men, sportswear, and baseball hats.
GRATUITIES / TIPPING
Tips on Carnival Triumph are required to be prepaid in advance for our group. Tipping on Carnival Triumph is $11.50 per guest, per day as follows:
$3.70 Per Day Stateroom Services
$5.80 Per Day Dining Room Services
$2.00 Per Day Alternative Services: distributed to other kitchen and hotel service staff
For beverage purchases, fifteen percent of the bill is automatically added to the Sail & Sign charge. Room Service staff may be tipped at your discretion. Tipping your Matre d' of your dining room is at your discretion. You should tip if you received special attention or services from the Matre d'.
Additional thoughts on tipping onboard the Carnival Triumph:
If you are putting your kids in the program and they have a great time, you should consider tipping the Youth Director. The youth staff put in 110 per cent to make certain your kids have a great time, and, if your kids' experience finds that to be true, it is appropriate for you to tip the staff a bit extra. As Carnival doesn't have a formal system or guidance for tipping the Youth Staff, you will need to bring cash for this tip. Our tip guidance is $5 per day, per child. Make certain that the Youth Director understands that the tip should be shared amongst the staff. For some reason, this hard working group tends to get overlooked in the tipping department. You will be one of the few who tip the youth staff on the Carnival Triumph and they will be sincerely appreciative.
The list of all the day's events are available in "The Fun Times," the Carnival Triumph's newsletter, and is also delivered each evening to your room. This makes planning for the next day's activities easy. The Fun Times even lets you know what items are on-sale in the gift shops. Also, many of the activities are listed on a schedule on a TV channel in your room.
Finally, the Cruise Director (the emcee for the cruise) will be a public presence throughout the cruise) will typically make announcements in the morning that are broadcast in the public areas of the ship and on a video channel in your room (provided you have the TV on and tuned to the appropriate channel).
For the kid's activities, Camp Carnival, they have their own Camp Capers detailing kids' activities that are available just outside the pick-up/drop-off areas for the kids. A copy of Camp Capers is also given out at orientation.
IN-STATEROOM TV AND MOVIES
The Carnival Triumph features an advanced interactive TV system in cabins that allows for guests to order shore tours, Pay-Per-View movies (for a fee) and free room service from the comfort of their stateroom. Passengers can check on the status of their Sail & Sign account (onboard credit card system) through the system as well.
Finally, if you are missing the comforts of home, ABC, CBS, Fox & NBC channels are usually available as well using a satellite feed from a major US city (Denver, New York, Los Angeles, etc.). A limited selection of basic cable channels are usually available (ESPN, CNN) as well.
QUIET PLACES ON THE SHIP
Quiet places onboard the Carnival Triumph include:
-The Washington Library is the ship's library and tends to be very quiet. The Washington Library is decorated quite tastefully with dark wood tables, large gold armchairs and red carpeting. Though small, it is a peaceful retreat with a large selection of board and table games available. You can also check out books but the hours are very limited - there is only one worker on duty for one hour, two times each day.
-The Oxford Lounge, which tends to be fairly quiet in the morning right up until the start of afternoon tea (3:30 PM) which features classical music. About an hour before dinner, the music switches to a live jazz combo plays and The Oxford Lounge has a dance floor for pre-dinner dancing.
The Carnival Triumph ship pretty much empties-out when it is in port. So, if you are looking for quiet, port days are a great time to be onboard the Carnival Triumph.
The onboard shopping area on the Carnival Triumph is aptly named "The Fun Shops" and is located on Deck 5, the Promenade Deck past the "World's Way Promenade". Various sundry items are available for purchase (suntan lotion, toiletries, candy, postcards, etc.), along with Carnival logo-ware, resort wear (casual clothing), jewelry, watches, liquor and cigarettes. The prices run the gamut - great on liquor and cigarettes, generally good on watches and expensive on sundry items. And, as the ship is at sea, you will not have to pay a sales tax - purchases are "duty free".
If you want to surprise someone and plan something special in your cabin, check out the "Formalities" store where you can order up something special - like decorating your cabin for and Anniversary or Birthday, roses, food baskets and other items to make your cruise that much more memorable.
Art Auction at Sea
At the popular "Art Auction At Sea" where you can purchase collectible art while onboard your cruise. See the tip below regarding some consideration you should give before you purchase art onboard your cruise. Reportedly, several companies that run art auctions onboard cruise ships will provide an appraisal with their art that will lead you to believe that you are getting very good value. There are those with opinions that the appraisal methods are questionable. So, if you are inclined to buy something at one of these auctions, a common sense approach to avoid feeling like you got ripped off is to never buy thinking you will make a profit, buy the art because it suits your tastes and budget.
Carnival Triumph Shopping Tips
The liquor deals are excellent. However, keep in mind limits on what you can bring back into the country per US Customs regulations. Also, liquor bought at the onboard store cannot be consumed during your cruise - you will be given the liquor you purchased during disembarkation. While not a guarantee, many items go "on sale" on the last day of the cruise.
Read the "Fun Times" for daily "special" sale items (watches, gold by the inch, etc.) featured in the stores.
SHIP FEATURES AND PHOTOS
When you board the Triumph, you'll find yourself in the Capitol - essentially the ship's lobby - which, like the building for which it is named, features a soaring, gold-domed ceiling and a circular staircase rising seven stories. Here you'll find the Capitol Lounge, and arranged around the open area on various decks the photo gallery, shops and shore excursions desk.
Triumph Lobby Lounge
Club Rio Lounge
Carnival Triumph Entertainment
The majority of the big-ticket events on the Triumph take place in the three-deck-high Rome lounge. Once again reflective of the ship's overall theme, the Rome lounge pays homage to its namesake with stately arches and columns. There are two main shows on the sailing. For main shows it is a good idea to get to the Rome Lounge early although there is ample seating, some of the views are blocked, particularly on the upper levels.
Choose a great seat in the Carnival Triumph Rome Lounge and check out a spectacular stage show full of music, dancing, lights and costumes that could rival any Broadway performance.
Besides the shows, you'll also find lots of bingo and interactive audience events like the "In the Bag" and the "Not-so-Newlywed Game." The passenger talent show was quite enjoyable -- think the "American Idol" finals rather than the massive tryouts. If you love to be the center of attention, the Triumph gives you plenty of opportunities to shine. If you don't, you'll still have plenty of fun laughing at or cheering on your fellow passengers from the sidelines.
If you love live music, you can find it at literally any time of day on this ship. Besides the nightlife on the World's Way Promenade, you can relax to the tunes of a Calypso band poolside or read your book in the Oxford Lounge alongside a classical music quartet.
But it's not all martini sipping and jazz trios on the Triumph - There is a late-night adults-only comedy show, karaoke competitions and of course, the hairy chest competition. The point is: No matter what tickles your fancy, you can be sure you'll find plenty to amuse you at any moment of the day on the Triumph.
The World's Way Promenade on Deck 5 is where the action is, at least in the evening. It's here you'll find the Club Monaco casino and the adjacent Olympic Sports Lounge which shows the major sporting events through an ESPN satellite feed and news in the off hours. The California Wine Lounge is a small but lovely nook that does in fact serve a variety of wines but inexplicably showcases only large bottles of Grey Goose vodka behind the bar. The Big Easy piano lounge is small but often very crowded -- in fact, we were unable to score seats until the last night of the cruise. This New Orleans-themed bar is decorated with oyster shells from floor to ceiling and features a recessed piano surrounded by a circular bar, a great spot for shouting your requests and singing along.
If you prefer dancing to singing, head to the Venezia Lounge. The cover band plays a great variety of familiar light tunes, and night after night the dance floor was crowded with couples of all ages. If your music or dance tastes are a little (or a lot) more high energy, head to the Hollywood Dance Club where hundreds of television monitors lines the walls from floor to ceiling. Here you'll find louder, more contemporary music and a younger crowd.
Underground Tokyo, the ship's arcade, is also here, and while it is cleverly decorated as a winding, narrow cave with games lining the walls, parents might be wary of its location -- right smack in the middle of the ship's mostly over-21 nightlife.
Hollywood Dance Club
Dance. Dance. Dance. The party is in full swing at the Carnival Triumph Hollywood Dance Club. Show 'em your moves and make new friends in the process.
The energy in the
Carnival Triumph sports bar is set on high. Check out a game on TV
and enjoy drinks and appetizers while you laugh it up with friends,
old and new, in the Olympic Lounge.
Paris Dining Rooms
Enjoy decadent and
undeniably delicious dining in the London and Paris dining rooms.
Choose Early (6 p.m.), Late (8:15 p.m.) or Your Time (5:45 p.m. to

buffalo mozzarella, soups, and salads. Chicken, seafood, beef, and
pasta entrees are among the varying main menu selections. Ice
cream, sherbet, cheeses, pies, and cakes are examples of dessert
The Paris Restaurant

London Restaurant onboard Carnival Triumph is located in the middle
of the ship. Both are located on the Lobby Deck.

minutes, and parties of ten plus may be accommodated at different
tables. All tips / the tipping policy for the main dining room does
Room Service onboard
the Carnival Triumph is nothing spectacular. What you should know
about room service on the Carnival Triumph includes:
-Room service is
available 24 hours a day,
-There is no cost for the food,
-There is a charge for beverages.
-The Carnival Cruises room service menu does not have a great
variety of options. You would be better off venturing out to one of
the self-service dining options like the Lido buffet where many of
the dining stations are open 24-hours a day.
South Beach Club (Lido
Club Lido Restaurant
For casual indoor
and outdoor dining, the South Beach is a popular option. Located on
Carnival Triumph's Lido Deck. This restaurant has a grand buffet
with carving stations, a New York Deli Counter, the Hong Kong
Noodle Company, a Pizzeria, the grills, and the Pantry.
The South Beach is
open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It is extremely popular
during breakfast and lunch, offering quick meal alternatives such
as salads and burgers. While the The South Beach is open from
7:00am to midnight, it does include a 24 hour pizzeria and deli
sandwich board. Of the various dining choices, the Caesar Salads
and Deli sandwiches receive nice reviews. Breakfast and lunch are
self service, but after 6:00pm service at your table begins. The
dinner menu includes salads, pasta, chicken, shrimp, and
Tips for the
South Beach Lido Buffet
The South Beach Club
does not require reservations and is the casual dining alternative
to the main dining rooms. Finding a table is usually not a concern,
but lines for cook-to-order can be long during breakfast and lunch.
Keep in mind that this is the most popular dining alternative on
the ship! If you want to get away from the breakfast and lunch
crowds, the main dining rooms are a better choice. No smoking is
allowed in The South Beach Club, and there is no cost for food.
Specialty drinks, wines, beer, and soft drinks are available for
purchase from the current bar menu.
The South Beach
Club's Pizzeria station has fresh, hot pizza 24 hours a day and is
a great alternative for after midnight munching.
Open noon to 6:00pm,
visit the grille for hamburgers and hot dogs meant to satisfy
ravenous cravings after a good swim.
Promenade Deck, sweets, snacks, and coffees can be purchased at the
Vienna Cafe. On the World's Way Promenade is the Vienna Cafe where,
for a reasonable price, you can purchase designer coffees and
pastries. This is a fine connection for chocolate covered
strawberries and banana splits. Casual dress is OK, and we suggest
you check while aboard for hours open.
Sushi Bar is open from 5:30pm to 8:30pm. The sushi bar is another
casual dining alternative on Promenade Deck. This is not a complete sushi bar, but
among the 8 to 10 menu items you'll find California rolls, Nigiri
salmon, and Nigiri Tuna (Maguro).

Before You Go
Get the most from your cruise Internet time and your trip
â‚¬â€ make sure you're powered up and
prepared before you board the ship with this handy pre-cruise
checklist. Here are a few things you want to remember to pack for
- WiFi enabled laptop and mobile devices
- Power supply for each of the devices you are bringing with
- A charged battery for your trip to the ship
- Data cables to transfer pictures
- Laptop privacy screens
- Email: Convert your email settings to basic; you will have a
better experience with less graphic intense content. Most email
providers have a lite version of their service optimized for
- Mobile websites: most websites nowadays offer a mobile
interface; they are leaner, less graphic intense alternatives to
their main page. Mobile pages load quicker via the leaner bandwidth
available onboard and can be accessed regardless of your device:
laptop, smart phone, tablet etc. A few examples:
- Apps: consider using apps; they are tailored for your device and
will improve your online experience
- Browsers: Experiment with alternate browsers for a faster
experience: Chrome, Opera, Safari, Mozilla, Firefox
- Remember to log out
- Disconnect from WiFi - develop the habit of disconnecting from
WiFi when ending your Internet session; leaving your device
connected may slow other users' Internet speed
- Words associated with leaner content = faster loading time:
mobile, text only, lite, no media, low resolution
- Discuss VPN limitations with your company's IT department prior
to cruising; onboard personnel are not able to change your settings
Internet access via satellite is a significantly different
experience than high-speed connections on shore. Onboard Internet
access is not guaranteed at all times due to the nature of
satellite communications, which are subject to occasional
disruptions due to weather patterns and location.
Accessing E-mail and
the Internet in the middle of the world's oceans is a triumph of
cutting edge satellite technology. Our investment into this
technology matches some of the most prestigious companies in the
world, but even so it cannot be as fast as your home broadband.
This is because the data must be transmitted over a slower wireless
signal to satellites 22,000 miles above the Earth, which then
bounce the data back down to the exchange. At home the data is sent
down your fast cable connection to your local exchange, just around
the corner from your house. We are continually reviewing our
investment to secure you as fast a connection as possible and
challenge fjords, glaciers and other grand geographical locations,
to provide you with as seamless and consistent a service as
Cell phone service
is available on all ships in the Carnival fleet. While your ship is
at sea, the cellular system is activated and you can make and
receive calls, send and receive text messages, as well as view
emails and browse the Internet with over 300 carriers worldwide.
International roaming rates apply and are set and billed by your
home carrier. Charges will appear on your regular cell phone bill.
Please contact your carrier before your cruise to check rates for
each service and ensure your plan allows you to roam. For more
information, visit www.cellularatsea.com.
Cell phone roaming
is enabled on the Carnival Triumph, however, the system can be
pricey as the price plans feature international roaming rates and
data charges (this can be very expensive). Contact your mobile
phone operator to ensure that your account is activated for
international roaming and inquiry as to per minute rates and data
All major US mobile
operators as well as Rogers Wireless in Canada are available on the
Carnival Triumph. There are also several mobile operators whom are
available on the Carnival Triumph.
For our guest's
convenience, the ship's telecommunications network offers direct
dialing via satellite from the stateroom's telephone. This is
available 24 hours a day regardless of the ship's location. This
service is closed on the final day of the cruise at 4:00 AM. The
rate is $1.99 per minute, and charges are billed to the guest's on
board Sail & Sign Card. Since all communication is via
satellite, the charges apply to all calls including calling cards,
credit cards, 800 toll-free numbers and collect calls.
Friends and family
may call guests on board via Sea Mobile Shore-to-Ship telephone
service. The rate is $9.50 per minute from the United States;

The Carnival Triumph
has 3 pools plus a small "kiddy" pool for wading that is part of
the Camp Carnival program. The pools have saltwater and there are
fresh water showers provided so you can rinse off. Reportedly, the
maximum pool depth is 3' 8" - enough to take a dunk and cool off,
but, not really deep enough, or large enough, to swim in. Given
this, the area around the pool is best suited for sunbathing on 2
The main pool is
"The Continent Pool" and is located in the middle of the ship on
Deck 9. The main pool features two oversized whirlpool spas and is
positioned below the 270 square foot LED TV known as Carnival's
Seaside Theater. The TV runs most of the day and features sporting
events, music videos, and in the evening, movies. With a 70,000
watt sound system, there have been complaints that the TV can be
quite loud. At the opposite end of the Continent Pool is a stage
which, during most hours of the day, there is some activity going
on - anything from a Caribbean band to a member of the ship's staff
leading an activity or game. Typically, the Continent Pool hours
are from 8 AM to 11 PM.
Located behind the
South Beach Club Restaurant on the Lido Deck (Deck 9) is "The New
World Pool" which is enclosed under a retractable roof and features
two oversized whirlpool spas. The Sun and Sea Pool area is
designated as "adults only,"however, there are mixed reviews on
Carnival's enforcement of the policy. Carnival has yet to introduce
their adults-only Serenity product onboard the Carnival Triumph,
however, the enforcement of the "no kids" policy will certainly
improve whenever that happens. Given the adults-only policy for the
New World Pool, and, that there is no live music in the New World
Pool area, this is your better bet for a quieter pool area.
Typically, the New World Pool opens at 8 AM and closes at
On Deck 10 (Panorama
Deck) is "The Universe Pool" which features one oversized whirlpool
spa. The pool is located overlooking the Continent Pool and right
next to the run-out for the water slide. Operating hours typically
are from 8 AM to 8 PM.
water slide is 214' long and the entry to the slide is located on
Deck 13 (Sky Deck). The slide is 3-stories high and empties out
into its own separate pool. The water slide typically operates from
10 AM to 5 PM and there is a 42" minimum height
There is a
children's wading pool in the Camp Carnival area of the Carnival
Triumph located on Deck 12 (Sun Deck).
Slide & Sunbathing Tips
When arriving in the
pool area, you will need to sign-out a towel for use around the
pool area. There will be a $22 charge per towel to your onboard
account for each towel you fail to return.
Babies & Infants
in Pools: Carnival's official policy is "no swim diapers, children
must be potty trained". We have not heard reports on whether the
policy is strictly enforced.
While Carnival does
its best to discourage this, sunbathers do show-up at 8 AM and try
to stake their lounge chair territory for the day.
The Port side of the
Lido deck near the pool does permit smoking. The rest of the deck

Carnival Triumph Spa
Carnival Triumph's spa treatments include many of the services
usually expected of a day spa: massages, acupuncture, body wraps,
slimming treatments, facial treatments, tooth whitening, steam
rooms & water therapies. The spa itself is operated by Steiner
- the leader in shipboard spa who operates spas on just about every
major cruise line in the industry. You should check onboard for the
current list of services being offered on your cruise. Of
particular interest in the Carnival Triumph's spa facilities
include a couples massage room, men's & women's steam rooms,
and a dry float bed (used in body wraps).

Workout Room (Gym), Jogging Track, Yoga
Carnival Triumph's jogging track and gymnasium are both located on
Deck 11 - the Spa Deck. Access to the jogging track is via a
stairway from Deck 10 and the gymnasium is accessed via the Spa
Carnival front desk. There is a hallway on the left and right side
of the Spa Carnival check-in that leads to the Men's and Women's
locker and shower area before entering the gym area itself. Access
to both Carnival Triumph workout facilities is included with the
cost of the cruise. There are men's and women's locker rooms and
showers you may use in the Spa Carnival facility.
gym is really quite outstanding - there are at least one dozen
treadmills and enough other cardio machines and weights to rival
any hometown gym. One thing your local gym probably doesn't have
though is the floor to ceiling windows so you can look at the
beautiful ocean while you work off your buffet butt. There is also
a selection of classes offered, but the trendiest and most popular
(Pilates, yoga and spinning) are $10 per person. In addition to the
gym, there is a jogging track on Deck 12 if you prefer your
workouts in the fresh air.
Aerobics and Yoga
Aerobics and yoga classes are available onboard
Carnival Triumph for a modest fee - check the Fun Times or with the
Spa Carnival front desk for scheduling information.
It's all in fun on
the Carnival Triumph Sun deck. Have a swinging good time at the
9-hole mini-golf course. Then take a quick run around our padded
jogging track, get your Ping Pong game on, and don't pass up on a
great game of Shuffle Board.
