Good experience for a first time cruise.

Chose this cruise because a co-worker had taken it in February and it was an easy location for us to get to (Tampa from Cleveland) and the dates worked for my wife and I to get off work. Overall it was a good ...

Can't complain too much - Good time with known caveats

I have sailed multiple ships in the Fantasy class, Paradise included (back in '03 when it was still no smoking). Due to this, I knew going in how this ship would compare to newer offerings from Carnival and ...

CARNIVAL PARADISE TAMPA, FL

Worst vacation in 4 years

This was my 3rd cruise and by far the worst. I'd go as far to say that it was one of the worst vacations I've ever been on. First off, the cruise ship is severely out-dated. Second of all, the food was terrible. You ...
