5/22/2014 South Tampa Invasion

Sail Date: May 2014
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Tampa
Let's be short and sweet here, the ships food is pretty bad, overall ship condition is very good, the ship does get kind of boring on the "cozumel" closed loop cruise unless you're one of the aforementioned south tampa pool drunkards.Saw one guy dry humping another guys head at the pool...as he almost fell off the railing, they were ripping the ropes off the closed pool and getting in, another time we heard the pool was closed because of broken glass at the bottom...

Dining room was decent, but overall service and food was meh, i ordered 2 separate drinks because i knew only one would come, surprising on the last day for the first time, both came! The best thing about this trip is the $8 taxi to cozumel palace for some all inclusive luxury day relaxing by the infinity pool, that's what vacationing is about, worth the $97 each.

I wouldn't cruise again on the paradise, mainly because it's a party ship, and they do party.. And because it's out of tampa, the home of More south tampa college kids.

The comedy was out of this world. Both guys were hilarious. Less

Cabin review: 207

The room was spacious and nice, however the dust that we'd come back to on top of all our stuff was just gross... i mean GROSS... It looked like saw dust.

Beach Break

Just go there, it's a 5 minute cab ride, and spend the $$$ it's well worth it.. cold wet towels when you enter, and a drink. And then breakfast,lunch all inclusive alcohol. The buffet is actual good food, unlike your cruise ships.
