A good but not great cruise: Carnival Paradise Cruise Review by nesco522
Overall Member Rating
A good but not great cruise
Destination: Western Caribbean
Pools: The pools were WAY TOO SMALL to accommodate guests. During days-at-sea, these pools were jammed packed. The main pool had a wooden divider that cut the pool into half. People using the water slide would constantly crash into people at the bottom because the people in the pool didn't have anywhere to go. The other side wasn't any better.
Hot-tubs: THERE WASN'T A SINGLE HOT-TUB ON THE SHIP. Many guests would complain that the Hot-tubs weren't hot. In fact, we were told that none of the hot-tubs had heaters. You More would think that the adults only serenity section would be hot but it wasn't.
SPA: There were times where the sauna/steam room wasn't working.
Shops: The shops were small and had limited selection.
Did I like the cruise? Yes.
Would I go on this boat again? No Less
Cabin review: R70
Our room came with the basics. It didn't have a fridge or a hair dryer. We had two adults and two kids in our room. We had two twin beds that were pushed together. They were comfy. The other two beds that hung from the wall were a little harder because they didn't have the box-spring. The a/c was really nice, but in order to adjust the temp in the room, you had to turn a dial in the ceiling. With the beds down, it was cramped because of a piece of furniture that blocked access to the bathroom. We did have a nice window view and I would suggest spending the extra bucks to look out the window.
First, and probably last royal...
