Carnival Paradise

March 2017 - Carnival Paradise to Caribbean - Western

It was just ok.

I think the ship is overdue for improvements and updating. Things are old and broken and it just looks like the bottom of the barrel cruise ship. I've been on it before but I don't remember it being quite like this. I did notice a change In service staff though. My first sailing on Paradise was awesome and we were very pleased with the crew, especially our housekeeper. He was amazing! This time, however, we were a bit disappointed. It was obvious that most of them didn't want to be there because they never smiled and some were flat out rude in the dining hall. I felt like they just wanted us to leave as soon as possible. We weren't trying to spend a lot of time in there but I felt rushed. Food was pretty nasty for room service. Dining room food was pretty good. Cruise director seemed unprepared and she was boring.  Shows were ok.

Oasis of the Seas

October 2015 - Oasis of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern

Nice ship, some service issues tho...

This ship is a beast! It's got some really nice shows and beautiful artwork. There is definitely plenty to see. We bought the ultimate drink package and it was worth it but the alcohol service left little to be desired. Rarely did we receive service with a smile. At the pool, we had to keep getting out for our drinks because the pool drink guy came maybe once an hour. At one point, the jacuzzi quit bubbling and no one came to fix it after talking to a few crew members. Our housekeeping service guy was lazy and left the room less than its best. It was by no means what I would consider a luxury cruise. 

 

The dining service, however... Oktay was our main waiter. He was PHENOMENAL. He was what all other customer service should be. We loved him and we tipped him a great big tip. We would book any cruise that man works on. 

 

Would I go on Oasis again? Unlikely. For the money, I'd rather take 2 Carnival cruises and get service with a smile. We try to be super nice to the people who work on the ships we cruise with. We know they are away from home and family so we try to be extra friendly and we understand that their jobs are demanding and their hours are long. But when we're consistently receive rolling eyes, disgusted faces looking back at us and overall crappy service in return, that's where we start looking elsewhere to spend our money. 

 

The shopping on board was less than desirable as well. But that's not a big deal unless you are looking to shop. 

 

Maybe your experience will be better and I hope it is, should you decide to book. Maybe there will be a different crew by then.
