  3. Carnival Paradise
Just a really enjoyable cruise and at a great price. The food was much better than expected; the entertainment was great; one of the comedians was excellent (the other wasn't - but at least there were 10 or so comedy shows on board); every single member of staff was friendly and amazing how many knew our names; MDR breakfast far better than on NCL, Guy's Burgers hit the spot as does the Mexican food (lunches on carnival are the best meal on board) and the sea day brunch was lovely. The cabin was tiny but spotlessly clean. All the staff were fab, especially Adam the Cruise Director. Loads to do and the usual happy go lucky Carnival crowd. The only shame was that we didn't spend nearly enough time in Cayman (2.30pm departure is ridiculous) and spent too long in Cozumel. Getting on in Tampa very easy. Getting off was a bit cumbersome.

Great Value For Money Cruise with Fab Entertainment
