June 2016 - 4 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Paradise
Worst Cruise I've Ever Experienced
First of all, let me begin by saying that the Cheers program is a complete joke. We had to pay for each day of our cruise, even though we were at port for one full day. That's one full day that we didn't really drink on the ship, yet we paid nearly $100 for each day on this cruise. Not only that, but the Cheers program will NOT allow you to have buckets of beer, so your drinks just get warm in the hot sun.
Second, the food on this ship is PATHETIC. Everything tasted like styrofoam. Plus, the buffet times are all a lie. The Paris restaurant breakfast buffet is "supposed" to be open until noon, but when we got there at 11:10 in the morning, they were already closing everything down. All of the food was put away. It's as if this ship doesn't want to feed its guests.
The only good thing about this cruise was a server named "Preja" on the pool deck. He was the best. The ship itself is terrible. Awful food and warm drinks at high prices.
