The cruise was decent. I will say the food selections left a little to be desired. The food seemed like it wasn't as good as the last cruise we went on and the portions were way too small. Also, one pool for an entire ship worth of people is enough to make me not go on this cruise again. There we so many people crammed in the pool it was a bit much to try to find a spot to get in. Rinsing off in the outdoor shower to cool off was more appealing. Not to mention if one person throws up, baby or adult, in the pool, they closed it for the rest of the day.

I've been on this boat before too, it seemed. Carnival either renamed this ship from Fantasy to Paradise and moved it from Charleston to Tampa or there are more than one that are exactly the same. My wife booked this cruise and I had no idea until we boarded and walked around. It took less than 15 min of walking around to realize this was the exact same cruise ship, or they're operating more than 1 like this with mediocre restaurants and ONE small pool.

Our cabin was also kind of warm and never got very cool.

Cabin Review

Cabin was nice. Be nicer if temp was adjustable. Bed was comfy
