March 2016 - 5 Night Western Caribbean With Carnival Live (Tampa Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Paradise
The staff throughout the ship was great. Guest services staff was a bit stuffy but not rude. Calvin the cruise director had a great sense of humor. Everything else about the ship was just okay. We kept waiting for a WOW factor but the food, decor and activities were good just not great. Shows were entertaining but the music overpowered the singers. We saw both comedians and one we liked and one not as much. They need to balance the at sea day activities for smokers and nonsmokers. There should be some that are not in the 'bar areas' - it is way to smokey for nonsmokers to venture in that area.
