Carnival Triumph is a Triumph Class cruise ship operated by Carnival Cruise Lines and has a “Great Cities of the World” theme.
Its amenities include the Paris Dining Room, the London Dining room, the Rome Lounge, Club Rio featuring music, and a workout center and the Spa Carnival. It sails on seven day itineraries through the Eastern and Western Caribbean from Miami, Florida. It also makes four and five day sailings from New York City, New York to Canada. The Carnival Triumph is structurally identical to its sister ship, the Carnival Victory, and differs from its class’s namesake, the Carnival Destiny, by the addition of extra balcony cabins on the Lido deck and various changes to placement and shapes of its public areas.
The ship has one of the first sea-going cellular systems which allow guests to use their own personal cellular phones to make calls directly from the ship at any time.
On August 19, 2008, Carnival announced that in November 2009 the Carnival Triumph will begin operating four-, five-, and seven-day cruises out of New Orleans, LA. The Triumph will introduce new seven-day eastern and “exotic western” Caribbean schedules to complement the line’s popular four- and five-day cruises to Mexico. The Carnival Fantasy, currently sailing from New Orleans, will operate four- and five-day cruises out of Mobile, Alabama. From November to May 2010, then will begin to operate cruises out of Charleston, South Carolina.
