  3. Carnival Paradise
I had ruled out Carnival a long time ago because of too many kids and pushy service, and enjoyed RCL on many cruises, I even have another RCL cruise coming up in November that I have had reserved last year. I took Carnival Paradise from Tampa to Grand Cayman and Cozumel. I started my cruise a bit of a snob, thinking to myself the food was better, the ships are larger, the rooms...etc. Well after the first couple of hours I was pleasantly surprised with great service, very friendly staff, not pushy at all. The entertainment was non stop even on sail dates, the comedy club was my favorite. Yes, the food could have been a little better, the ship could have been bigger and more glamorize, but the service and the friendly could not have been better. I am a convert, I will sail more Carnival
