How to Choose a Cabin on Carnival Triumph

by Donna Heiderstadt | July 06, 2017

Carnival Triumph may have launched in 1999, but a major refurbishment in 2013 has kept her up to date with Carnival's best bars and food joints, including favorites such as Guy’s Burger Joint and RedFrog Rum Bar.

Thinking about setting sail on the 2,754-passenger ship? You have a dozen cabin categories to choose from — and we've got the scoop on each.

Interior Upper/Lower
At 185 square feet, these 16 cabins on decks 1, 2, and 6 can be a great deal for two friends on a budget, and some even feature a porthole — but one of you has to climb up to the top bunk (from $249).

Interior
Also 185 square feet, these cabins sleep two (in twin beds or a king) to five (in two uppers and two lowers plus a trundle) and are located on decks 1 and 2 and 6 through 10 (from $259).

Porthole 
Classified as interior, these 220-square-foot cabins located far forward on decks 1 and 2 feature two portholes and either a king or two twin beds, making them a great-value option for a couple or two friends (from $279).
 

Interior with Picture Window
Located forward on decks 6 and 7, these 185-square-foot cabins sleep two and have a picture window with obstructed views or look out onto a non-private walkway. Those on deck 10 are larger, measuring in at 220 square feet and sleep three or four (from $294). 

Ocean View
These 220-square-foot cabins on decks 1 and 2 sleep two, three, four, and even five in a variety of bed configurations and some can connect. There are also a few cabins on deck 2 with obstructed views (from $309).

Balcony
Some of these 185-square-foot cabins on decks 6 through 11 sleep two while others sleep three, four, or five (via a trundle bed), and some connect to neighboring balcony cabins. Balconies are 35 square feet, although if you snag the last starboard and port cabins aft on decks 6 and 7, it will be 75 square feet (from $429).

Aft-View Extended Balcony 
For a larger balcony with a wake view, book one of these 185-square-foot aft cabins on decks 6-8 that sleep two or three and have a 60-square-foot balcony (from $509).

Premium Balcony
Located aft on deck 8, these 185-square-foot cabins are designed for two guests (or up to four via trundle beds) and feature a 75-square-foot balcony. They can connect to adjoining balcony cabins, making them a great option for groups of family or friends (from $639).  

Premium Vista Balcony 
To enjoy privacy and panoramic views, book these cabins — located on the aft corners of decks 6 through 8 — that can sleep up to three people. The interior space is 185 square feet, but the wraparound veranda is 75 square feet (from $709).

Junior Suite
There are only two of these 275-square-foot suites, and they are located far forward on deck 9. They're perfect for couples who want to enjoy a bit more space, VIP check-in, a bathroom with double sinks and whirlpool tub, and a 50-square-foot balcony (from $829).

Ocean Suite 
Located on deck 7, these 275-square-foot suites sleep up to four guests and feature suite amenities such as a large bath with a whirlpool tub, a walk-in closet, and VIP check-in (from $849).

Grand Suite
For even more space, choose one of these 345-square-foot suites on deck 7, which each sleep up to five and feature a living area, large bathroom with a whirlpool tub, a private dressing area, and VIP check-in (from $1,249).
