Paradise?- The Good, Bad and the Ugly

We chose this cruise because the ship was sailing out of Tampa and was going to Havana. We are avid cruisers and have sailed out of Tampa before. This trip provided us with opportunity to visit with family in ...

Not so exotic

I chose this cruise to go visit Cuba and Key West with my husband. Carnival has found a way to nickel and dime you even when you pay for all such as drink package. No bartenders except in serenity that were eager to ...

Great itinerary on an older ship

First off embarkation and debarkation were a total breeeze. Everything went smoothly and getting off the ship in Cuba and through customs was about a 10 minute process. Everyone was extremely organized. I have read ...

Excellent vacation

Embarkation process was wonderful, our arrival time was between 12:30 and 1:00. We arrived around 12:00 and we walked right on the ship. We had lunch on Deck 10 the lido buffet. I found the food to be limited, they ...

A nice cruise, but the highlight was the Port Day in Havana

Our group of 5 made a last-minute decision to book this cruise, and we grabbed what seemed to be one of the last 2 or 3 cabins available about 2 weeks before departure. A few days later, we then added another cabin ...

Excellent Experience But Learning Curve too!

Cuba was one of the few places we had not visited in the Caribbean. That was rectified January 2019 on a five night cruise aboard the Paradise which proved to be an excellent overall experience. This ship was easy ...

Outstanding Cuba!

We chose this cruise for two reasons: we wanted to visit Cuba, and the ship was sailing out of Tampa, a short drive from my home. Just for a point of reference, I've previously taken 20 or so cruises on many ...

Great First Intro to Cruising

Background: I am a 27-year old single guy, and this was my first cruise. I went with 5 other similarly-aged friends (3 guys, 3 girls). I was kind of dragged on to this last-second vacation. My friends picked this ...

Escape to Cuba

Boarding in Tampa was quick and easy. They were basically waiting on people to check in at about 1:30 when we got there. The cruise director Patricio was fantastic. The live music, not so much. The DJ was ...

Careful of cruises to Cuba

This was the second cruise this year to Cuba but we chose it because we like last minute cruises and while our first cruise was $1250 for seven nights this was $229 for five. A no brainer. The ship is among the ...

Wasn't expecting much....But shocked about how great it was!

This was our 45th cruise and many of them have been on Carnival over the years dating back to the 80’s. So, we are no new to cruising and not easily impressed. In fact, I’d say we are pretty critical, ...
