Recommends Carnival Paradise? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
We were told when we booked our cruise that 3 adults was the maximum per stateroom. You can imagine our shock and dissappointment when our whole family (2 parents, 3 grown children) was assigned to the same room. This definitely took some of the "Fun" out of our Funship experience. Our room also had leaflets & Cruise notes left in it from the previous cruise. The room was in good shape otherwise, and would have been fine for 2 to 3 adults.
Ship Quality
Layout could be explained better. The condition of public areas was good. The decor was nice. Getting to the gym was a little confusing.
Service and Staff
Overall, the staff quality was very good, but the person who we contacted about the room we all had to share was not helpful at all, even when we offered to pay for another stateroom. This is not an example of going above and beyond.
Variety was good.
Food and Dining
All the food we had was of good to excellent quality.
Ensenada, Mexico
