January 2016 - Carnival Paradise to Caribbean - Western

Carnival Paradise Cruise 23-28 Jan 16

Unfortunately, our ship was delayed docking due to storms, so our 4pm sailing was not until around 10pm. We were lucky only living a short distance from the port and Carnival kept us updated with emails and texts, so it was not so bad. The cruise itself was all good, with excellent service and friendly staff. We did not go on any excursions but did go ashore. Cozumel dock was very clean and the enclosed compound was the usual bars and shops, all very nice. Outside was a little bit less appealing. Grand Cayman used tenders to get ashore and was a better experience with a whole different feel. Onboard, the entertainment is good with the musical shows very lively, but sound quality not great. However,the band in the casino bar,Shiplash, was one of the best we have heard anywhere. Having a lot of contacts in the music business we are not just your average listener and they were excellent. Our return to Tampa was another delay, due to fog, docking at 9.30pm instead of 8am. Again Carnival were good, allowing passengers to stay aboard for that night or disembark, which we did. I'm sure the next cruise passengers were not too pleased though. Overall, we were happy with our last minute cheap cruise and would do it again.......checking with Mother Nature first of course.
