. VERY disappointed. One and done with an awful smell (smells like a wet dog) which is being generous.

Sail Date: Jun 2022

The Paradise ship is very outdated, not ADA compliant in all areas and has an awful odor. (Smelled like wet dog or throw up). I was VERY disappointed! This was on my 82 yr old mom’s bucket list so you can imagine my dissatisfaction. The dinners each night were ok but nothing to brag about. Very small portions and seconds were not offered. The excursions are pricey and not anything special. Nightly entertainment was geared to a much younger audience and not many options to choose from. I can play bingo and sing karaoke at home. ☹️ Finally, once you are aboard ship not everything is covered. Water, soda and all alcohol is extra if you don’t buy the drink package. Also look closely at your tab, gratuity (18%) is already added. So really the drink packages don’t cover everything! Don’t disregard my comments. You will be sorry like us. One and done on this ship! The ship is outdated and drab. One and done with this ship. Many threshold are not ADA compliant and had a hard time using a wheelchair.

Cabin Review

Housekeeping was good. The cabin was smelly and outdated.
