Meh...next time just fly straight to Mexico and stay at an all inclusive resort instead of doing cruise

Would not book Paradise boat again and will be more picky when choosing A cruise with more kid activities appropriate for his age and for me too. The excursions made our trip the cruise at self and what it offered… Not great. Not great for families with older kids at all

I was a bit disappointed in this cruise. For the amount of money spent on the vacation I would have expected better accommodations. I would probably not choose this ship to sail on again.

The ship is a little dated & the food was ok. Overall the service was good. If Cuba is on your bucket list I would recommend visiting, it will make you really appreciate what you have in life.

Worst cruise ever!

The favorite part of my trip was being with family. I have been on 7 cruises and this was the worst one that I've ever been on. It was very dusty in my room;  and I couldn't play Bingo or go  to the casino because of all the heavy smoking. All of the food was cold except for the evening dinner. My sister's birthday was on the 28th and we were promised a bottle of wine which we never got. I would never recommend this cruise to anyone.

Don't miss out on the brunches in the dining room; ask for a window seat.

do early evening diner, so you can see evening shows. Pool was small, but enjoyed the hot tub. Take time to get to know the ship when you first get on board. For the first time, it was nice and would go again.
