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

Our great cruise getaway started with our agent Chris who was very knowledgeable and efficient. He also gave us some good tips to make our trip even better. The ship itself was excellent, very clean and the cabin and bedding very comfortable. All the staff was friendly and fun The pool servers were so efficient. The food delicious . Our dining room servers Dennis and Lala were excetional. The entertainment was great and I especially liked the innovative and colorful costumes. The Comedy club was hilarious. This is a young fun cruise with a laid back tropical atmosphere. Thanks again Carnival!

PS there were some very trashy girls who were provocative and inappropriate. They must have thought they were on the girls gone wild! Kudos to all the staff and security for dealing with them appropriately.

Too much Smoke

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Paradise | Sail Date: Oct 13, 2014

The food in the main dining room was pretty good, the room was clean and overall the entertainment was enjoyable.  Only problem was the level of smoke.  As a none smoker I quickly developed a sore throat from the level of 2nd hand smoke in the Casino, main pool deck and bar areas.

Love the Paradise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Paradise | Sail Date: Oct 27, 2014

This is our 3rd time on the Paradise, My Lady friend Carmen and I really enjoy traveling out of Tampa.  We Live about an hour north of Tampa and its so convenient.   This ship and crew are so friendly to its passengers they make you feel like family.   We will be back on the Paradise,  January 5th 2015, this time we will be joined by my Daughter, Son in Law and 2 grandchildren.  It will be their 1st cruise experience and we know that they will have a fun filled experience, that will encourage them to be a frequent cruiser.

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.
