This cruise in general was a good cruise; Leon the CD is amazing, he brings the passengers together and is very good at doing his job. Good singer too! The food was very good, variety was with many choices, and they take great care to control waste. You can have as much as you want, but don't waste it. My negative comment would be that they have taken the couches or chairs out of the rooms, as well the open deck and limited seating in the Main areas. If their intention is to keep people out of the rooms and into the bars, it's is working. Pool area was in excellent shape, clean and well managed. Entertainment could be improved, two independent guitarist and one piano player. Not the best. The shows were very good, you have to get use to the idea that orchestra players are gone. Latin night had musicians, it that was excellent. Staff was excellent. Not a bad cruise!

Seating areas taken away

  • Beach
    Paradise is a treasury to visit. Cruise companies do not promote it, but VERY worth while spending the day. $3.00/person to get in (includes beach chair and umbrella) spend $20.00 . Fantastic pool or beach, choose one or both. Only 10 minutes from Carnival Cruise Port. Taxi $15.00
