I want to start off by saying that the cruise wasn't that good of a cruise but there are some pluses well no there aren't any pluses first the food was good for the first day but after 4 days of eating burgers and fries and the other stuff which wasn't good it got awful the service their is remarkable but activities for the cruisers suck. You will be trying to find something to do on the ship the whole time it felt like you were waiting to go back to Tampa instead of being on the cruise. The activities on the cruise ship are mediocre unless your aged 1-8 or 60 and up this isn't the cruise for you. The ship rocked a lot while on the way to Mexico and when getting to grand cayman island you had only 4 to 5 hours to experience the island the cruise felt more of a trap when you try to do things on the ship you can't cause there's nothing to do. The second day afterwards was me more thinking of going home than being on the ship felt like i was trapped the best thing is the beds are comfortable so when you find out there's nothing to do there is a nice bed to sleep on your whole vacation. I'm not angry at all but it's just the carnival paradise doesn't have anything to do unless your very young or very old the most fun you'll have is off the ship the carnival paradise shouldn't be in "the fun ship" category it's the most boring ship carnival has I suggest another ship with more activities because this one isn't for you. I was more relaxed when I got back home than being on the ship the cruise felt the same as if I was listening to a speech at a highschool graduation just for 5 days which means it was BORING but of the ship in Cozumel was awesome but all fun things come to a end because we had to return to the boring ship just to let you guys know .
