  3. Carnival Paradise
I've sailed "Paradise" many, many times, but sadly, the cruise has gone down hill since the last time I sailed her. Entertainment, in general, and big shows in particular, have hit rock bottom for me. Way too loud, and with music that I don't care for, and can't stand to listen to. WAY TOO LOUD! No way nearly as much choice of food, and wait staff way overloaded with tables. Two hours to eat dinner is much, much too long. Embarkation/debarkation good at the port of Tampa. Comedy shows O.K., and not too crowded. Cabin service good, with twice daily service. Karaoke available each, and every night, with a fair selection of music. I was told that the solid state karaoke equipment would be updated with new music frequently,,,but sadly, that hasn't happened. Newly wed, nearly dead show was it's usual self, pretty good, but much better if you haven't heard the questions over, and over again. Hypnotist was terrible, and a total waste of time.

Five days aboard the Carnival "Paradise".

Cabin Review

Interior Upper/Lower
Cabin 1A U175
Good clean cabin, but just a bit noisy at times. Well worth the money.
