December 2014 - Carnival Paradise to Caribbean - Western
Our first Carnival cruise. The boat is dated…but there is nothing wrong with it. It's a smaller ship and our cabin was small but comfy. Food was ok…a bit disappointing….same stuff on the buffet all week long for breakfast and lunch. Dinner most nights was good. Did NOT care for the folks coming through the dining room every night PUSHING the shots at each table - kind of "low buck" . Did the "at sea breakfast" in the dining room and it was good!!! Had fun and loved Cozumel and Grand Cayman - though we just did the private beach at both (Paradise Beach and Tiki Beach). Our cabin guy "william" and our dining room waiter "Marco" were wonderful…as was most of the staff.
Had fun but probably wouldn't do this one again. We prefer Royal Caribbean over Carnival.
