Calling Mr. Entertainment

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Paradise | Sail Date: Jan 15, 2015

The staff is excellent, food is very good, however for me the entertainment was lacking.  I realize that the entertainment has to appeal to the various age groups but there needed to be more options, especially when 3 of the four days are at sea.    Not everyone who cruise wants to go to the casino and night clubs.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Paradise | Sail Date: Jan 15, 2015

i was told on three different times on the phone,not to worry about my need of a wheelchair that Carnaval was aware of it,never a mention of any cost to me,luckily i had brought my wheeled walker,when i complained aboard at the service desk,she put the blame back on me.

DISAPPOIINTED CRUISE

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Paradise | Sail Date: Jan 10, 2015

"would not reccommend Carnival Paridise to anyone . Not enough activities to do , not enough shows , buffet closed down to early , rude  waiyer in the morning dinin room for breakfast, not near enough restrooms on each deck  especially for women , there was always a line and some were out of order.The Food in the main dining was so plain and ordinary every night,was not anything special at all. even on captains night We were expecting somthing exceptional and we were very disappointed. The waiter" Lucy" was exceptional we couldnt have had a better time with .He made our whole dining experience GREAT and alot of fun and laughs Thankyou LUCY. We have been on other cruises from carnival and had a gret tim with plenty of things to keep us  all day and night and even had to plan to go to certain events at later times because we couldnt make them all. We wre with family that we havent been with or together in years for this special event and we were all disappointed. We love crusing and wont stop but never on the Paradise again.

UNFORGETABLE

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Paradise | Sail Date: Jan 10, 2015

THIS WA OUR FIRST CRUISE AND WE BROUGHT MY 9 YEWR OLD SOON WITH US. IT IS A MEMORY THAT WE WILL ALL CHERISH FOREVER.  THE BOAT WAS EXCEPTIONALLY CLEAN AND VERY ORGANIZED FROM THE EMBARKTION TO THE DEBARKTION AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN. SO MUCH TO DO, WE WERE UNABLE TO ACCOMPLISH HALFTHE THINGS IN 5 DAYS!!! THE ENTIRE STAFF ON BOARD WAS AMAZING ESPECIALLY OUR ROOM STEWARD, BUDY. WE DO NOT HAVE A COMPLAINT ONE AND WOULD DO IT AGAIN IN AN HEARTBEAT WITH THE SAME SHIP AND STAFF

Our first cruise ever!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Paradise | Sail Date: Jan 10, 2015

The cruise was even more than we expected! Everyone we came in contact with was warm and friendly. On the last night our waitress "Micky" surprised us with Creme brûlée. There were so many activities to choose from! We felt so spoiled!

Good time.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Paradise | Sail Date: Jan 10, 2015

Had a great time.  Food, service, stateroom, decks, pools, etc.  were great.  Would definitely cruise again on this ship.  Staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful.

Paradise was a great getaway

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Paradise | Sail Date: Jan 05, 2015

Out of Tampa to Grand Cayman and Cozumel...Carnival Paradise provided an excellent experience.  I have been on Carnival, Royal & Disney.  Usually Carnival is noisy and rowdy but our experience on Paradise was great.  All due to their staff on this trip.  Everyone was kind and attentive.  Food was good, not the best we've had but not the worst by any stretch.  Stayed on the Empress level.  Cabin crew were happy to assist.  Always a pleasure when you don't have people waiting to get off their tour!

You get what you pay for!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Paradise | Sail Date: Jan 05, 2015

The price was right, but we paid for it in quality, variety, and availability of food!  The people were wonderful, but we won't cruise Carnival again.  After going on Royal Caribbean for our first cruise and then moving to Carnival, we were disappointed.

Most recent Paradise Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Paradise | Sail Date: Jan 05, 2015

The Carnival Paradise is an older ship but is in excellent condition.  I had just about every thing to do as any larger and newer ship.  I have been fortunate enough to have cruised on the Paradise 10 tens and have never failed to enjoy myself.

Our first cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Paradise | Sail Date: Jan 01, 2015

Everyone and everything was AWESOME! The buffets/dining rooms were a mixture of cuisine that were pleasing to the eyes and palate. 

The crew were exceptional. We are extremely pleased that we chose CARNIVAL FOR our maiden voyage. Carnival has inherited new family members as we have adopted them as our family's cruise line.

Even though the ship is one of Carnival's older vessels it is well maintained.Love
