  3. Carnival Paradise
We do not expect top notch food services but this was not up to par with Carnival's usual. Some bad choices included pancakes, lobster ravioli;s and cold peas. Add to the service at the brunch was terrible, Waited for coffee, waited for juice, waited for someone to take menu, waited for refills on coffee (start to get the message,) never check on food after delivery. Big Mistake to add steak for 20$ at main dining table, Makes ship look cheaper than before. This was obviously someone's idea to make more money. Considering you can get a similar steak at Outback for about same why would I pay extra here. It only aggravated all our table members each day. Have a one day special if you need the money. Positive side: Show was better than expected, our compliments to time it took to put this together. Do not take this ship just for the show though!

Food Service was not up to par.
