Carnival Paradise

May 2016 - Carnival Paradise to Caribbean - Western

Close but no cigar

Our cruise was ok , very basic, easy boarding and  leaving, the  overall  is this  the Paradise  is an old ship and needs to be  either scraped or  severely  renovated, my state room was  fine  although  fairly noisy  , the  crew  was  really good  ,  there was only one port  Cozumel  and that  was  just ok, most of our time  was on the  ship.While  the  staff did their best to keep us occupied and having fun  the  bare fact that the  ship is old and does not have  all the amenities of  Carnivals other ships  was  apparent in many areas  except for one  the entertainment, it  was  just plain over the top some of the best i have ever seen either on a  cruise ship or  off  broadway. Clearly  this was the  shining star of this trip  from the  Band "Ship Lash"  to  the "Epic Rock" dance review  just  awesome !!!!!. Unfortunately  that was  where the  good  ended.Food on the entire  cruise  was  fair at  very best ,the  Spa  was  very expensive as usual  and the  hard sell ups were getting annoying , actually  there was  so much selling  and  Hawking  being done on the ship that  you were  never  free from it  including during dinner . Bottom Line  this was a  budget  cruise   basically used for  most of the  Tampa  locals to have a  quick get away weekend . I have been on  other  Carnival ships  as  well as  many other  cruise lines  this  definitely  below  par , not the worst i have ever  been on just not the  awesome experience  the  Cruise director  keeps telling you your having .

fauxsale's Tips

Cozumel, Mexico - Cozumel is geared toward much more beach activity , if your not into scuba , snorkeling, frying in the sun etc etc shopping was ok , i have been to many other locations where it was better. The beaches were beautiful . i suspect if your 28 yrs old you would be giving a different review then someone over 55 would.
Carnival Paradise Carnival Paradise - Paradise is one of the smaller and older ships and it showed. We would Not have gone on this trip if we could have gone on another most likely out of Miami or Ft Lauderdale . i.e. to Key West and Cancun. the only real reason to even take this cruise would be if you lived in tampa.
