OVERVIEW

CARNIVAL TRIUMPH is the second in Carnival
Cruise Lines' Destiny-class ships.  The first cruise
ship to be over 100,000 gross tons, CARNIVAL
DESTINY was a landmark ship.  However, as often
is the case, the second ship in the class has exceeded
her sister in popularity.

Slightly larger than the CARNIVAL DESTINY,
TRIUMPH has an additional deck and can carry about
more passengers.  Also, since they are three years
apart in age, TRIUMPH had the benefit of  knowing
what worked and what could be improved.

However, TRIUMPH has been one of those ships that
have always had a good feel to it.  This is an
intangible that is primarily attributable to the officers
and crew that have run the ship over the years.

Although this is a very large ship, it is quite
maneuverable.  The ships are equipped with powerful
bow and stern thrusters as well as varibale pitch
propellors.  This combination allows TRIUMPH to
avoid the need for tug boat assistance in most ports,
which is very important when doing island itineraries
where tugs are scarce.

Powered by six medium speed diesel engines,
TRIUMPH can achieve speeds up to 21 knots.  This is
about average for a cruise ship.  

The interior of the TRIUMPH was designed by
Joseph Farcus.  In designing a ship, Mr. Farcus first
develops a central idea and then designs each of the
public areas  around that idea.  For the TRIUMPH, he
choose the World as the theme.  Consequently, the
design of each of the public rooms is inspired by a
world renown city (or in one case, a state).  While
this makes for considerable variety in the decor, there
is an overall harmony.

For much of her life, TRIUMPH was homeported in
Miami.  In 2009, however, she moved to New York
for the summer season, doing cruises to Canada and
New England.  In the fall of 2009, she will  reposition
to New Orleans.
                             
The ship's art collection  also reflects the ship's
central design idea - - The World and in
particular great cities of the World.

At the ship's center is an atrium that
soars from Deck 3 up and through Deck
9.
In the atrium is a section giant golden
globe indicating the central idea for  the
ship's interior design - - The World.  
Smaller versions appear on the ceilings in
other public areas.
Part of the fun of exploring TRIUMPH is looking out for the interesting artistic details.  For example,
there are intricate glass sculptures by Lucio Bubaco in the California Wine Bar, ancient Roman motiffs
in the theater, and a wood-paneled hallway recalling an English stately home.
What breathes life into a ship is
the crew and the TRIUMPH's
people are energetic and friendly.
