After booking airfare for springbreak and a hotel and car rental, we looked into a cruise instead. It was 300.00 cheaper to cruise not including FOOD. So we just returned from the Carnival Paradise out of Tampa. It is a smaller ship which we tend to like. However, we have to say, the food was TERRIBLE. (the buffett by pool was acceptable) the dining room, NOT SO MUCH.

Everything else was typical cruise.

We did my time dining. Did not work. We wanted to eat at 6 we ate at 7. They gave us a beeper and we had to wait. We tried to communicate with hostesses but the language barrier prevented us from getting an answer as to whether or not waiting an hour for dinner would be the norm.

Cabin Review

cabin was spacious enough. We had two beds with a roll out set next to one of them. Plenty of storage. Bath was good.
