Review for Carnival Paradise to Caribbean - Western

Short and sweet…entertainment was ok nothing special, food at Lido buffet and Elation Dining Room was not very good, no flavor, meat was tough and the scrambled eggs were awful. Guy’s burger joint was good. Waiting in the omelette line took forever, only one cook. Very limited gift shop options. Mini refrigerator does not keep anything cold. Mixed drinks are super weak. Bingo was fun. Cruise ...

My wife and I sailed out of Tampa for our anniversary on May 2, 2022. There is always something going on, on the ship, however, the cruise was rather boring. We are not big partiers. On our past Carnival Cruises, this was never an issue. Carnival Paradise is the smallest of the Carnival fleet. With that being said, this cruise just didn't cater to our personalities. We ended up with a ...

Ship was fine, liked the décor on this one in the main areas, food was blah. Ports were nice.

Transfer from Airport to Cruise ship: - They had us waiting 1.5 hours before finally getting us there and some of the staff was starting to make comments about not making it on the cruise. Next time I will do Uber from Airport to Cruise terminal. Embarkation: Since we were so late, we got right on and had no lines. I used the Verifly app they suggested before hand to get all the Covid stuff ...

It had been 25 years since I had been on a cruise. I was a little afraid of getting sea sick. The boat did rock quite a bit leaving port, but once out in open/deep water, it was "smooth sailing". I can not get over how accommodating the entire staff was. Almost constantly asking if we needed anything. Waiting on our every need. Constantly cleaning the ship. The cruise director, Lei Lei, was ...

First of all - the staff are amazing. We were never anything other than delighted with the staff and their service, or their pleasantness. The food was also very delightful - we rarely ate in the buffet because frankly, I have zero restraint, but in the dining rooms the food was beautifully presented, sensible portion sizes, excellent temperature and flavour. Our room was lovely - we were on ...

This was my wife and my 26th cruise; our 5th on NCL (although they only show us as our second because the 3 previous ones were back in the 80's/90's). We fell in love with the layout of the ship and the spaciousness of the public areas made us feel like we were in a much larger ship. As with most NCL cruises, there were many dining choices, and all were dining on your own time. We liked the fact ...

We selected this cruise last minute. Went with my special needs adult son. Boarding in Tampa was a breeze, we drove and parked in the facility right across from Port. I have to say that all staff members we wonderful and really helped out making my son feel welcomed and comfortable. He is on the autistic spectrum. We went to guest services and check out the sensory back pack.There is a ...

We love NCL for the relaxed, layed back vibe. So glad we don't have to dress for dinner, unless you want to of course. The ship was 60% full, but even if it was 100% I think there would be plenty of space on board. What a wonderful time we had. The ship may be older, but we do prefer a smaller ship and it was very clean and comfortable. The crew was the friendliest and most helpful crew we ...

Went on same ship in January for 11 nights. Pandemic was still on, but getting better. This time, pandemic is much less. Ship does decent job keeping you safe. Wish masks were mandatory inside hallway and elevator. We wore our masks in both One island was canceled because ship had engine issues. Ok, those things happen. But the port was in Mexico where I had planned to do 2 hours of ...
