One of the most disturbing and stressful trips ever on a carnival cruise. Invited a friend that cruises on another line. It took me 3-4 years to get her to travel on Carnival with me. I have been going with her on another. We both have ... Read more

We are two Carnival gold status grannie cruisers and love embarking out of Galveston for Texas convenience. We signed in for a Cruise Critic meeting, however it apparently never happened, or at least we found no notice of it. Back ... Read more

This ship has hits and misses. They shows were great. The staff the first night was lacking. But the next day things went from poor to perfect! I don't know if everyone had a rough day the first night or what. Robert, our head waiter, was ... Read more

The ship itself is great and we had good time! But overall was slightly disappointed, the victory was a much more fun ship with Way NICER PEOPLE! Guest and staff! This cruise had a very bullyish crowd that made it very unwelcoming and ... Read more

Just returned from a 4-night sailing on The Paradise. Wondered throughout the trip why so many do not like this ship. Embarkation was totally without any problems. Once on board the ship impressed time-and-again as to the cleanliness; ... Read more

My wife and I have been on over 20 cruises on a variety of cruise lines. Never before have I ever been offered such garbage that was being disguised as food. The buffet was scattered over an area so large that by the time you were able to ... Read more

I liked the covered dome as the last three days were cold. The covered area made it feel comfortable. The pizza pirate was very good and was a short wait most of the time. The black Pearl was very enjoyable. This was the first cruise we ... Read more

Embarkation was a simple, quick process, with plenty of helpful staff to look after us. I'm elderly, and took my 3 grandsons, aged 4, 7, and 9 on a 5 night cruise. Our stateroom was cosy but cramped for 4 people. For a longer cruise ... Read more
