The positives first, the staff are hard working and friendly. Disembarkment went smooth. The burgers and Deli food were ok. So disappointed in evening dinning, did not have one good meal. It use to be nice dinning. We had 8:15 dinner and everything that was suppose to be hot was cold and everything that should be cold was hot. My table of 8 concluded that the food was prepared at same time ...

The food was good cafeteria food. The salads and fruits were clean, but the bananas and plums were rotten and still put out for guests. I did not go to the dinner seating because it was no different than the food on the Lido deck. Everything was clean. People I met we friendly and rooms were superlative. The stewarts were fast, friendly and very helpful. My massage was pleasant, but totally ...

This might have been the worst cruise ever..... The food was horrible... other than the Guys Burgers and the Mexican stands on the pool deck the rest was just awful - The Buffet had 3 stations in the buffet room and only one was open the entire 5 day cruise.. line 30 people long and when you got up to the choices there were like 3 choices only.. Chicken, chicken and more chicken..and potatoes . ...

Surprising cruise on an older ship

There were 6 friends on this cruise and we chose it for 1 reason only. The piano bar with Gustavo. We've cruised 2 other times where we had the fun of seeing Gustavo. But this was the first time on Carnival. I was leery, it's an old ship and I was afraid it hadn't aged well. I was very pleasantly surprised. Embarkation was the easiest I've ever been through. I think it's because you don't ...

After reading all the reviews I was VERY worried about going on this cruise. Let's be honest - they don't sound so great. Here's my take: Nothing is perfect - It's all about what you make of it. This was our second cruise. Our first was on the Carnival Breeze in January of this year as a family of 3. We did Carnival Paradise in November for just my husband and I as a celebration for my 40th ...

This was my first cruise on Carinival Paradise. The cruise director Adam was unbelievable , was perfect. He did a great job making sure everyone was entertained. I loved that they had so many activities for all ages. The mr. ARTEM from Casino was so professional ,helpful, friendly and polite, we didn't know how to get winning money and he solved this problem. Food and drinks were great. Service ...

Paradise to Key West & Havana, Cuba

My sister and I wanted to see Cuba and I am glad we went when we did since it seems now restrictions for travel there may be put back in place very soon. The ship is older and smaller but went through renovations last year. Rooms were adequate in size but no sofa or table and a very small desk area. We ended up rearranging the 2 beds from side by side set up, which gave almost no clearance ...

We chose this cruise on the Carnival Paradise for one reason and one reason only - CUBA. The itinerary was exactly what we were looking for: only 5 days as we were leaving our 4 year old home w/ the grandparents and two ports Havana and Key West (which we also love). SHIP: We had not cruised on a Fantasy class ship in over 10 years, so I wasn't sure how we would like it compared to the ...

Amazing B2B Havana, Cuba & Cozumel

We are a couple in our mid 60's and we had a wonderful time on the Fun Ship Paradise Our Cabin Steward Ketut was awesome during our B2B cruises. We had him for both cabins & his friendly greeting calling us by name was a pleasant surprise. We chose late cabin service, but the ice for the day was always there when we got back from breakfast. The cabin U198 was smaller than anticipated for a ...

We usually cruise with NCL, but the itinerary during March to Cuba was only available on Carnival ( NCL opened up their itineraries after we booked). The entertainment was OK, the comedian performed for 35 minutes- should have been longer. Breakfast in the dining room was horrible- 2nd day we arrived in the dining room at 9:05 and the food was finally served at 9:55, after I went and asked ...
