Service was excellent...room steward...bar staff...dining room staff all very accommodating. Comedy shows and the dance show were very entertaining. The weather was perfect. We had a great time in Cozumel.

worst cruise ever

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Paradise | Sail Date: Sep 11, 2014

We did this cruise 2 years ago and loved it so we booked it again. Big mistake, food choice was half on what the first trip was. Entertainment was almost non existent. Ship is going in for a total remodel in feb,I guess they are just going through the motions for now

Ehhh...

This will definitely be our last cruise with Carnival.  Very disappointed in the food, entertainment, and the bartenders', waiters' and hostess' friendliness.  We had a suite/cabin with a balcony that overlooked a lifeboat.

Not Happy

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Paradise | Sail Date: Jul 31, 2014

This is my third cruise with Carnival, I find that the service on the ship has declined.  There were lines for everything.  The food was terrible no different than a fast food restaurant.  Dinner was better very small servings.  Room service was over an hour wait.  Family was separated in different dining rooms.  Young children running all over the ship at all hours unsupervised. 

The on board ship credit or cash back promised was never given.  Drinks are very expensive. After you pay for gratuities in advance be ready to pay 15% more on that expensive drink.

Not happy....:(  Done with Carnival.

eat all you see try new things

Don't miss out on the brunches in the dining room; ask for a window seat.

Third Mate

Go early before everyone wakes up for breakfast and avoid the wait. Book the early dinner. The pizza was very good along with the omelets and sandwiches.
