Sail Date: Sep 2016
Cabin: Ocean View

This is my second carnival cruise.:-reasonable prices..good food...however the paradise needs a remodel..can't see out if cabin windows..can't regulate ac...not enough outlets..( only one )..no hairdryer..although very pleased with the wait staff..housekeeper..pleasant..friendly.. accommodating...I will definitely cruise again on carnival ..but..it will be a newer ship..I was on the valor..that was very modern..had hair dryers..bigger bathrooms.. but overall prices are reasonable..ports were great..smooth ride no rocking...embarkmentvwent smooth but long lines..alit of waiting in line ...our service team in the restaurant. Were excellent..a big shout out to Alberta...Ivan..and Islam...very good...shore excursions were nice but fill up fast..the pool had salt water in it which I thought was weird..but overall water was nice and refreshing..we will definitely be booking another cruise in the future with carnival..newer ship for sure.w hen embarking didn't like the new policy about bringing plastic bottles of water on board..only soda cans..had to throw all out water away..was not happy

Cabin Review

Cabin 6A

Two things I didn't like about my cabin...this is my second cruise..and both times rooms were not cool enough..ac doesn't regulate like it should..hard to sleep..and no hair dryer..only one outlet in entire room..needs a remodel
