Sail Date: Dec 2019
Cabin: Ocean View

Disclosure, we "overpaid" for three cabins on the Paradise that departed Tampa on 12/26. Of course it was supply and demand market pricing, but I felt like this (older) ship was going to have an uphill battle to impress me on such a short (4 nt) cruise with only one port of call (Cozumel). Spoiler warning - it did impress!

We booked three cabins -

1) an oceanview for my wife and I

Port Reviews

Tampa

it took longer to get to the tampa port from the airport than I anticipated. we hired a private car for 6, so it was not unpleasant.
