Really Not Bad

Carnival Paradise Cruise Review by phrunk

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Feb 2017
  • Destination: the Western Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Grand Suite

We wanted a quick get away from Mardi Gras. Chose the Paradise because their itinerary worked well with our schedule. We had a large suite and it was great, walk in closet, full bath, wonderful balcony, and nice king size bed. The room was hot when we arrived but our steward brought us a fan and the room cooled off and was very comfortable. The ship needs updating, carpets are worn, areas show wear and tear, but the staff worked hard to keep it clean. Boarding was simple but that was a perk from being in a suite, debarkation was the same.

Food was very good, our waiter was wonderful very attentive and pleasant. I had the filet one night and there was an extra charge but it was worth it. We ate in the dining room every night and had a room service sandwich one day, it was also good.

The pool was fine, actually there are lots of areas to sun and you can find privacy if you look for it. Had two spa treatments and they were wonderful.

We have cruised many times and I did not have high expectations, I was pleasantly surprised!

Great cabin, very large and spacious. Nice walk in closet and huge bathroom, we loved the balcony. Room was clean and comfortable, needs a little updating.
