Carnival Paradise

August 2016 - Carnival Paradise to Caribbean - Western

Was about the same price as a midpriced hotel

As the title states it is about the same price as a mid priced hotel. The food was above average. The entertainment was sub pare, and I kept thinking our local high school thespians do a better job, and have more talent. The ship was very old, and had a moldy/mildew smell. The best part of the cruise was the staff! They were great, treated us with kindness, addressed by name when ever they saw us, and did their best to anticipate our needs. They also did their best to keep a very old ship looking its best. It also seemed to just be a 5 night "booze cruise" as many if not most of the passengers seemed to be highly inebriated most of the time, and this lead to quite a few spousal disputes. Wis I could have given a higher rating, but it just wasn't there. The best part was the staff, and the price, but would have been glad to pay more...if I got more. The Paradise needs to be sent to dry dock and be scraped.

dockerysue's Tips

Cozumel, Mexico - Get away from the whole tourist thing. Cozumel is a lovely place when you get to see it not as a tourist. It has a beautiful cathedral where the locals live. and the local bakeries are great. Don't worry it is a very safe place, and the taxis are cheap. Just ask first.
Carnival Paradise Carnival Paradise - Book it on a newer ship, and if your already book, don't have high expectations.
