Carnival Paradise 5 day TPA-GCM-CZM
Destination: Western Caribbean
The entertainment on the ship also exceeded our expectations. Our cruise director as Wee Jimmie, a very jovial Irishman, who is in the perfect line of work. The pools on the ship are very small, but served our purpose. On the serentity deck, it is reserved for adults only. The fitness facility on this ship was roomy and had all equipment in working order. Only thing was the $12 charge for the spin class. The spin bikes for the class were aged and broken and in a sad state. It didnt seem as though the "fitness director"/ spin instructor was certified as the class was barely so so and not worth $12. There is also a charge for Body Sculpt. We cannot speak for this class.
Overall, the experience on this cruise/ship was one I'd recommend to anyone who wants to cruise. The quality of this ship in all aspects, far exceeded our 12 night Middle Eastern cruise that we did on Royal Carribean Vision of the Ses 2 years ago. There are families and kids of all ages on this sailing, bu Carnival does a great job at keeping the kids busy. Night life on ship is there. Karoke was fun. There is a nightclub for adults but we didnt experience it. Overall, the Carnival Paradise is well worth every penny and sailing out of Tampa was so easy and convenient compared to other ports. We will sail out of there again for sure! Less
Cabin review: m196
Stateroom M196: right by elevator but was not noisey. At night around 10-11pm, a pungent smell would overcome cabin. We determined it was residual of the restaurant and cleaning. Smell lasted 10 minutes. Room size was average for a cruise. Carnival could invest in hangars with clips for hanging skirts etc. Decor was a bit outdated, but fine. This stateroom has an oceanview with a large window not a porthole.
Not impressed with Carnival
Great Cruise and Staff --- NEV...
First, and probably last royal...
