And that's a good thing. While Carnival is the Fun Ship, some have written that it was too much. I disagree. All in all, it was one of the better ships (of more than 10) that I have sailed and my first Carnival in over 10 years (switched from RC due to the pricing and itinerary). The 2 days at sea allowed us to enjoy the ship and we did. Ocean view cabin (M202) was more than adequate with the ...

Carnival Paradise Here is my review of the Carnival Paradise 3/26. My wife and I have cruised 36 times over 40 years starting with the Home Line in the 70s. We have seen many changes to cruising many good, many bad. The price we paid for the 5 night cruise was $900.00 which included taxes and tips for 2.. This price was unheard of in the 70s. The costs of reduced price was a definite decline ...

Great excursion but a small ship with limited amenities

This was a great cruise for the price and cruising out of Tampa was a great experience. The ship itself was nice. Nothing fancy but nice. Excursions - since this was just a last minute getaway we didn't book anything but we did enjoy 7 mile beach in Grand Cayman and walked around the port in Cozumel (weather wasn't great!). Room/Room steward - We had an ocean view on deck 5; it was ...

I booked this cruise as it was going to be in Grand Cayman on my wife's birthday (we love Grand Cayman's 7 mile beach). Overall...the ship is older but very well maintained...it is also smaller than most of the other ships we have cruised on. Luckily...the weather was great and the gulf was not rough...so it was pretty much smooth sailing. Our room was what we expected...nothing fancy but ...

I have been on over 10 cruises using 5 different cruise lines over the years. We were invited on this cruise with a group. I would not have chosen it but, then I thought, how bad could it be? Dining room food was terrible. Cold, fatty, soggy, runny, undercooked, overcooked, sparse, lack luster....you name it! I was shocked at how bad the food was. I even upcharged ($20) for a steak one evening and ...

Going to Mexico. Everything on the cruise was nice all the staff very friendly. We had a ball at the club Rex on the first night. The 2nd day i was motion sick until 6pm but all the staff was great with me. They all tried to give me an helping hand. The Lido Resturant was nice they always had some good food and if you didn't eat what they cook,you can always go get pizza, sandwiches or subs late ...

CARNIVAL PARADISE - pretty, pretty, pretty good ship!

Disclosure, we "overpaid" for three cabins on the Paradise that departed Tampa on 12/26. Of course it was supply and demand market pricing, but I felt like this (older) ship was going to have an uphill battle to impress me on such a short (4 nt) cruise with only one port of call (Cozumel). Spoiler warning - it did impress! We booked three cabins - 1) an oceanview for my wife and I ...

We have been on over 20 cruises, and selected this one as a pleasant opportunity to get away and recharge. We are seniors who retired to FL many years ago for the good weather and access to cruise ports. We were accompanied on this cruise by our neighbors and everybody had a good time. Embarkation was a pleasant start to our experience. Never have we experienced such a speedy embarkation and ...

Somewhat disappointing

We chose this cruise because it went to two of our favorite ports: Grand Cayman and Cozumel. This was our third cruise, second time on Carnival. The first Carnival cruise was 5 1/2 years ago, to the Southern Caribbean, out of San Juan (on the Valor), and we really enjoyed it. This cruise on the Paradise was disappointing in comparison. Embarkation was extremely quick and painless. Our ...

This was our 3rd cruise aboard the Paradise and I have to say, the updates they made were awesome. However, every night at dinner, our group had something go wrong. From slow service to the wrong food delivered, you name it, it happened. At one point I had to yell at the waiter for bringing me drinks I did not want. He kept bring me a rum drink he wanted me to try, well after the second night and ...
