Review for Carnival Paradise to Caribbean - Western

Short and sweet…entertainment was ok nothing special, food at Lido buffet and Elation Dining Room was not very good, no flavor, meat was tough and the scrambled eggs were awful. Guy’s burger joint was good. Waiting in the omelette line took forever, only one cook. Very limited gift shop options. Mini refrigerator does not keep anything cold. Mixed drinks are super weak. Bingo was fun. Cruise ...

Just got off the Carnival Vista, 7-day cruise from Galveston to Roatan, Belize, and Cozumel. We had a good time, as always, but there were a few things that bugged/perplexed me. First, the good stuff: We didn’t have to wear a mask anywhere during the entire 7 days! Hallelujah! Kendall Fyre is a super Cruise Director. She has the energy of 10 people. There are plenty of things to ...

1. 3 ½ hour embarkation – standing on your feet in the sun in long line with bags 2. No food onboard upon embarkation 3. No instructions for muster 4. Safety briefing provided while guests are mustering - hence only half of the passengers get to hear them 5. Standing in line for 33 minutes to get 2 spoons of food 6. Food Manager Vikas Beri is Missing in Action 7. Location of ...

Least entertaining ship I have ever experienced.

My wife and I sailed out of Tampa for our anniversary on May 2, 2022. There is always something going on, on the ship, however, the cruise was rather boring. We are not big partiers. On our past Carnival Cruises, this was never an issue. Carnival Paradise is the smallest of the Carnival fleet. With that being said, this cruise just didn't cater to our personalities. We ended up with a ...

We were offered a GREAT deal to board this ship to the Mexican Rivera. 140.00 per person, 7 days. Never having been to the west coast my wife and I jumped at the deal. Needless to say, it was one of our BEST cruises. The three ports, (Puerta Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cabo) were super. We loved them all and found the people to be SO friendly and helpful. We would do this trip again and have ...

We love that there were now cruises out of Mobile! We had booked especially after 8-9 cruises were previously cancelled and tried a Jr. Ste unobstructed supposedly. There were several large cranes in view and a deck below. I Always try to check the view and what’s above/below but no indications of either issue. This was the smallest balcony I’ve ever had. Needless to say I only spent about 5 ...

I have taken several carnival cruises. I am a gold member. After this cruise i will never take another carnival cruise. The food was the worst. only decent place to have food of guys burgers. But with the food being so bad everywhere else, the lines for guys were extremely long. The buffet food was the worst, no flavor, very dry, bread so hard it was not even eatable. Fine dinning was just as bad, ...

Just got off the Panorama yesterday. Here are my quick thoughts: Had a Havana Aft Extended Balcony on Deck 9. Fantastic view, loved the location right below the Lido and pizza station. It also shielded us from some of the soot that lower aft balconies reported. You do hear the occasional chair being moved on the deck above, but it wasn’t too bad. We tried all of the specialty restaurants ...

Ladies cheeks of their asses hanging out in dinning ...

We sailed on Carnival Vista on April 30, 2022. We chose this cruise because we live in Texas and can drive to the Galveston pier. Our cabin was a grand suite which is their largest suite. It's about the size of 2 standard balcony cabins. Not even close to other cruise lines' upper level suites, but didn't cost as much either. The decor was minimally OK. The sofa "table" was quite small and ...
