Not so much a Paradise

Nothing bad to say about the people that keeps you entertained, or the waiters, room service, well people in general. They were as pleasant as they could be; they truly deserved every thank you; now the boat itself has very little to offer, maybe few years ago was a nice ship but I saw lots of things that made me take the decision of probably looking into another cruise line; the showers in out 2 ...

My history: 5 cruises. 2 disney (small and large), 1 carnival (sensation, tugboat class), 1 norwegian (Epic, large class). Having cruised from ports of Canaveral and Miami, large and small ships, i feel like I have a good grasp of Caribbean cruising including Cozumel. When we booked this cruise, we knew what we booked, we booked an inexpensive small cruise ship (for today), with a single ...

Was really looking forward to this cruise but was extremely displeased with it overall as were my fellow travelers! Had Oceanview Upper 214. The hum of the motors drowned out other hallway sounds until last night when staff were very loud picking up luggage from hallways. The window was beyond dirty! Could barely see out of it because of lack of cleaning inside and out. We never figured out which ...

I booked my cruise to participate in my best friend's wedding. Upon arrival to the port, we were told we would board at 12 and instead boarded an hour late which made us start the wedding a half hour late as well. My best friend was promised an hour reception which turned out to be 30 minutes because the wedding was pushed back and because we had to attend the safety meeting. Once the reception ...

Ok, I'm not a hard guy to please, actually I'm the type that would just take the piece of hair out of my food and roll with it, BUT this cruise got worst by the day. First night, after my eldest son all of 6'4 was attempting to pull out the sofa sleeper in the GS Suite we called room service to make sure we wouldn't damage anything, our response was after 9:00pm they couldn't assist, we would need ...

I just got back from a 5 day trip to Grand Cayman and Cozumel on the Paradise. It is an older ship and as such, the rates are cheaper. Overall, the crew was awesome. Never had to tell a crew member my name twice and they used it every time. Are the rooms dated? Yes, but the cabin stewards did their best to keep everything clean and fresh. Food: It was your typical cruise fare. There were several ...

This just might be the worst cruise ship on the ocean these days. Built in 98', and with no upgrades ever, you can tell every day of it's age. Tag that along with the worst crew in the history of cruise ships, and I'm not sure how anyone could enjoy this ship. Now let's start the review with the positives: Wayan our steward. Decent and always had ice for us and room immaculate(it is his ...

I would like to start by saying although this was our first cruise and we were fortunate enough to have feedback about what to expect and reading reviews on Trip Advisor were helpful I came into this cruise with an open mind. I work in the hospitality industry and I have learned to take reviews with a grain of salt. Never judge a book by it's cover because you could be missing out on an amazing ...

I am a very experienced and well travelled female and I enjoyed every minute of my recent cruise on Paradise. The initial cost is fantastic & they make their money on add ons so you can make it as cheap as you want & $300 for five nights is about the best deal around!!! So people want everything for nothing??? The service on this ship was exemplary. Never once did I not feel like I was treated as ...
