We always choose Carnival....great price and great value. You get the most bang for the buck.We choose the Paradise because it fit the time frame we had without a lot of $ extras. This was the 3rd time on the Paradise and it did not disappoint. The beauty of the older ships is what the new ships are missing. The atrium, the glass elevators,the beauty of the showrooms the new ships are lacking. ...

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 ...

We enjoy Carnival because it is indeed Fun Ships. This cruise was exceptional. The executive staff was very friendly every time you saw them on deck, in the halls etc. The performance shows wee outstanding and professional. The crew was great except of course the continued problem in the your time dining. We have sailed to Platinum with Carnival and there is ALWAYS a dining room team that is ...

Cruise director Leon is the BEST in the business!! Entertainment also! ALL Staff ALWAYS greet you with a smile. Very attentive. Clean ship. Beds super comfortable. I'm gluten free and was hoping there would be more bread options. They had only one and it tastes like Thanksgiving stuffing. Not good for french toast! They do have a gluten free pizza. The dining room did their best to accommodate ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Just a really enjoyable cruise and at a great price. The food was much better than expected; the entertainment was great; one of the comedians was excellent (the other wasn't - but at least there were 10 or so comedy shows on board); every single member of staff was friendly and amazing how many knew our names; MDR breakfast far better than on NCL, Guy's Burgers hit the spot as does the Mexican ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 20s

This was my first cruise and let me say we had a blast. The cruise director Adam was phenomenal. I loved that he would dress up and change looks depending on the theme. He had great energy. He did a great job making sure everyone was entertained. I loved that they had so many activities for all ages. The welcome shows were great. Food and drinks were great. The FUN SHIP drink is a MUST. So ...
