Carnival Paradise

August 2018 - 6 Night Grand Cayman & Havana (Tampa Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Paradise

Just returning from Cruise. Needed more time in Caymans and little less time in Havana

Negative points of Havana hospitality would be offset but beyond congeniality levels of Caymans. Simple items are overpriced in Caymans but these simple items are scare or non-existent in Cuba. Impressed with Carnival to the point that we just booked a second cruise in January 2020 for Aruba. Don't be fooled by discounted prices offered by Carnival. This is value versus overpriced cruise lines offering similar amenities.

Cruise Tips

HAVANA, CUBA

Still a lot of dis-repair evident in Havana. But there are isolated areas of renewal evident. Better organization is needed from customs, immigration, currency exchange, vendors, transportation. But it is rather new to the tourist market and time will help improvement. Currently, it is struggling and progress is on the horizon.

Carnival Paradise

Carnival Paradise

Don't be afraid to go outside of your comfort zone. Participate in the events, use the hub or Fun Times publications to plan our day. Relax and realize that not everything is going to go exactly as planned. The staff are there to make every minute enjoyable. With a ratio of 3 passengers to every staff person, they do their best and it shows in many more positive areas.

Tampa, Florida

The Embarkation point for Carnival was dis-organized on street level. Need better signage and better trained staff. Computers were slow and sometimes unresponsive when checking in.

George Town, Grand Cayman

Well organized operation. From the leaving the security of the cruise ship to ensuring that everyone got back safely, top notch professionalism and organization.
