Carnival Paradise Cruise Review by firstname.lastname@example.org
- Sail Date: August 2016
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Ocean View
The food was very inconsistent some things were good and others were terrible. A lot of the food was very greasy and salty. I was not impressed with the one option we had for sit down dinner, most of the time there was only 1 meatless option and it was not very good. If you wanted a decent cut of meat or fish you had to pay $20 extra. The dress code for the dining room was ridiculous, women could basically wear anything including bathing suits and men were sent away for wearing sleeveless or almost sleeveless shirts. I stupidly bought a $25 coupon book that is basically useless because they give you the same deals in the stores without the coupons. I tried to return this and they would not take it back even though it was after the 1st port and never used it.
This was my 1st cruise and I realize we were on a smaller ship but there really wasn't much to do during the day and swimming was not an option since you could only go in half the pool that was completely full anytime it was nice outside. The hot tubs were also always full so that wasn't and option. There was only 4 irons on the whole ship so when it came time to iron clothes for dinner I had to wait over 30 minutes in line. I am not sure the whole cruise thing is for me for what I spent on the cruise, flight and alcohol package I could have stayed at an all inclusive and had a lot more options. With that being said the comedy show was ok and I did have fun at the piano bar and on the serenity deck one night.

CozumelTook a cab to the beach we had 9 people it was $7-10 each way per person. Paradise beach was $10 to get but included a $8 coupon for food and drinks. Also a chair and umbrella. You can pay $10 more to use all the activities there. The people selling things on the beach are persistent.View All 6,684 Cozumel Cruise Port Reviews
