Carnival Triumph Fabulous Amenities

The 101,000-ton, 2,758 passenger luxury cruise ship set the bar for all future Carnival cruise ships. Its impressive nine-deck atrium, 9,000 square foot casino, and stunning three-deck-high showroom with its one of a kind DNA-inspired chandelier. The Promenade deck is continually buzzing with a variety of bars and entertainment venues surrounding it. Overall, 18 bars and lounges feature a variance of themes. Including a sports bar, wine bar, and a piano bar called the Big Easy. Big Easy features different walls created from thousands of real oyster shells collected from New Orleans’ famous Acme Oyster House. A classic disco room displays lavish purple chairs and glass panels filled with bubbles. While those looking for a more elegant, subdued feel can visit the lounge one deck below for cocktails or a cigar.

Exquisite Dining

Diners have the option of several eateries to keep things fresh throughout their voyage. Two 2-deck high dining rooms are featuring stunning ocean views. There is also a casual 2-deck high indoor/outdoor buffet. You can stop at the sushi bar. Or, the 24-hour pizza place. The café provides a range of dining choices for passengers to sample, including Asian to deli-style sandwiches, burgers, salads and more.

Those looking to experience a more water-based vacation have access to four swimming pools and seven hot tubs. The kids will love the 214-foot long three-deck-high spiral water slide. Not forgetting the children, the Triumph is a great all-ages family cruise. A 1,300-square-foot indoor-outdoor children’s play center is located on a top deck and contains its pool, a video arcade for kids of all ages, and a teen club complete with a dance floor and soft-drink bar.

When you book a cruise aboard the Carnival Triumph, you are bound to find enjoyment on every deck.
