  3. Carnival Paradise
We chose this cruise because it was a smaller ship, out of Tampa and it fit our schedule for a milestone birthday celebration. We found it not an easy ship to find your way around, needs updated in some areas but the problem we were shocked to experience was the rudeness of some of the employees. We all have bad days but there seemed to be a select group that needed to realize we passengers are there paying their wages, a smile goes a long way if you cannot show or say Thank You. Our room steward, Lawrence was the best room steward we have ever had. He seemed to always know when we were coming or going to be able to greet us. We never found anything wrong and if we ask for something we only had to request it once. He was even there to help tie a tie :)

Ship needs updated
