March 2017 - Carnival Paradise to Caribbean - Western
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.
