Fun, but terrible food

Review for Carnival Paradise to Caribbean - Western

Choose as an easy, kid-free, romantic getaway to celebrate a milestone birthday. Embarkation and debarkation at the Port of Tampa is a breeze, although walking directions from the garage to the ship are misleading. Our cabin (deck 4 oceanview) was perfect for 2 people for a 4 night cruise, very clean and cabin attendant was wonderful. Shower curtain is awful as expected. The stateroom fridge was ...

I have been on many ships with carnival cruise line and this was my worst experience ever. This cruise line has changed quickly. I am very disappointed in carnival cruise line. The refrigerator didnt work in the cabin. The quality of the food has extremely dropped. Also the portion sizes were so small. People was ordering 2 or 3 entrees just to try out to see if they would like it. I noticed ...

We took this cruise because of the Casino promotion made it a deal difficult to pass. We had no high expectations. We usually cruise with Royal Caribbean, and the only other Carnival cruise (the one that gave us the casino promotion) was horrible. But actually it was an awesome cruise! Entertainment was fantastic - much better than on RC Adventure of the seas or NCL Escape. And the Magic is ...

Traveled as a Family with older children. 24, 21, 18, and 15 I would not recommend families with small children. There are not enough activities for younger children. There were too many people and not enough staff in the right places. There was little organization in the embarking and disembarking at ports and activities for the number of people on the ship. The crew did not appear happy to ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

I chose this cruise for the value it provided at the time. It was a decent price for all that was supposed to be included. However, once boarding, that value vanished. My party included my wife (32) and daughter (2) and I (31). All three of us hated it. First, our room was little more than a closet with a Queen Sized King bed which was supposed to be enough space four four people they ...

I told my wife it was as if Carnival pulled the ship up to Walmart, lowered the gangway and shouted " Ok, get on." This is my ninth cruise, the second with my wife and the first with my twin, 12 yr old girls. We left out of NYC. I have never seen a more crowded ship in my entire life. I have no idea how Carnival can expect to accommodate 3200 guests in just two very small pools, pools no ...

My husband and I had cruised once before on carnival. We wanted to try cruising with our boys 17 and 13 to see if they liked it with the goal of doing a European cruise next summer. This cruise I booked prior to covid and have rebooked and rescheduled many times. The food and service is exceeded expectations. We ate breakfast and dinner in the dining room all but a couple of times. There were ...

This ship was built for 3,960 guest. After boarding we found that 4,400 guest we on board. Long lines for food, entertainment, not enough lounge chairs and we were enroute to Aruba, for 2 days. After getting back from excursion there was no food. It was a hurry up and wait for anything the entire cruise. Over crowding in the limelight lounge for music and dancing was bad but the they ...

Cash was stolen from our safe

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We chose this as a family cruise--grandparents, parents, and three teen girls. Our experience was greatly overshadowed by having all of our cash (a substantial amount all in 20 dollar bills so quite visual and evident) stolen from our locked safe. It happened between the first and third day of the cruise. When I opened the safe on the third day, our passports, vaccination cards, and car keys ...
