Cruise was fun, leaves some things to be desired
"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.Also, one pool for an entire ship worth of people is enough to make me not go on this cruise again...."Read More

Carnival Paradise was good. Special cheers to Amber, our awesome cruise director, and the magician Anoop, who entertained us in the Elation Dining room with his tricks. The food was tasty, the entertainment and the shore excursions were good. The only problem was the fact that our room was congested. Some tips for you guys are:- - Don't miss the punchliner comedy club and Playlist Productions. ...

I will start by saying the staff was nice. But... Our room smelled like sewage and arm pits. The food was disgusting every night. There were no activities. This ship is old and very out dated. We had a family of five. Our king bed was two twin beds unevenly put together. Our children beds were in the wall, it took over 2 hours for someone to come and assist with pulling them out. I have cruised ...

Worst Cruise in 31 Years of Cruising

We are Platinum status with Carnival, so we've sailed with them frequently. This cruise was the worst of any -- Carnival or other cruiselines -- that we've ever been on. The ship was SO CROWDED!! The two hot tubs on Lido deck were always completely full; I counted 17 people in one hot tub!! And the music on the Lido deck was so loud you could feel the vibrations. WHY do they think people want ...

Many reasons, primary serviced in general. Room smells like urine after they cleaning the third time they came and cleaned the ducts this should be done prior our arrival,since our room smells like feces after. only 2 elevators were working for 3,000 people ,had to wait over 20 minutes each times and always super pack.Kids club was a mess people was complaining too that so many kids and no ...

We were thrilled by the first sight of the great old girl, the Paradise, a grand lady! For us, this was jaw-dropping decadence. Everything was so clean and well kept! Our cabin was small, but plenty roomy for us. The shower was hot and the water pressure was fantastic. Our Cabin Steward was Wahyu. He made us feel like we were the most important guests! Every little thing was paid attention to and ...

Please don't get me wrong, I LOVE CARNIVAL CRUISES however, this was the worst one I was ever on.. Where do I begin? This is the smallest ship in the fleet and I brought 10 people on this cruise. We had What they called a junior suite. Junior was not the word for it.. Cabin is no more than a crew cabin with a balcony view. it was tight, tiny and I would never call this a suite of any sort. ...

Honestly, I chose this cruise for the price and convenience… Tampa is our favorite port to cruise from, close to home, covered parking garage across the street from the port. I booked an inside cabin on the 12th deck about five months ago, after I sent full payment, I read about 30 awful reviews about the ship… I was so disappointed that so many people had such a bad experience… and I was really ...

The food on the boat was absolutely perfect, our cabin steward iwoan was so attentive to detail and made sure that what ever ...

This ship is in pretty nice shape for its age. I like the design and lay out. I didn’t like the fact they had no movies at the pool area at night. I always loved the nightly movies at the pool on other ships. The food was really good in comparison to the Pride and the Spirit. Staff was really nice. We enjoyed the trivia and the staff there was amazing! The shows were good. I really enjoyed ...
