September 2016 - Carnival Paradise to Caribbean - Western
My husband and I enjoyed the nightly entertainment on board esp the production music and dance shows and stand up comedy shows. Service was great and everyone was friendly. Our waiters sang and danced for us. The food for the most part was average (buffet and dining), but some of the entrees were surprisingly delicious. As a first time cruiser, I didn't know what to expect. I didn't realize that some amenities like beverages (soda), Wi-Fi and hair dryer were not complimentary. We don't drink much soda so it was not a big deal for us, but for others plan to bring your own or pay a hefty price for the drink packages. We also wished there were more day activities planned for adults at sea because the small pool, casino, and shops didn't appeal to us. We found other activities to do during the day like playing mini golf and ping pong and watching movies. The ship was one of the oldest and smallest class of ships but we still had a great time and experience.
