Carnival Paradise Cruise Review by sunlover_beachbum: Never Again
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Western Caribbean
I have traveled with Carnival about 20 times and now it has taken a drastic turn for the worse.
Menu changes .... no more rack of lamb, no more pork chops, no more roasted pig buffet, no more
Prime Beef. Salmon overcooked, chocolate melting cake overcooked, no more cheesecake at the buffet, no more quality !!! Caesar salad tasteless with iceberg added to fill it up. Ha!!
The ship was not well maintained .... it's an older ship, but could be a lot cleaner.
The cruise director, Steve, has decided that he is a major star !! He has put himself into all the shows and is the fiddler, the violinist, and now the juggler. I did not come on board to see the Steve show.
Also, to get into Grand CAYMAN ..... NO MORE RAMP,,,, walk down stairs to get on the tender. Lots of stairs. Hate to see it when the weather is really bad.
The library is open one hour ..... and the games were from the 1950's and pieces missing in all of them - bring your More own.
The maitre'd does not come to the table .... you only see him in front on tip day.
I HATE TO COMPLAIN .... I REALLY DO.... I LOVE CRUISING - BUT THIS WAS THE WORST SO FAR. Less

Cabin review: PTU7 Porthole
Right above the anchor .... so you get noise in the port when arriving and departing. If you have the beds put together .... there is a corner cabinet that will block your passage -- so someone will have to climb over back and forth to reach the closets or bathroom at night. Not such a good choice.Read All Porthole (PT) Reviews >>
