Couldn't wait to come home!

Sail Date: October 10, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Overal, the ship was outdated.

Pros: The gym, bed, and casino

Cons: The food was equivalent to a school cafeteria.

Recommends Carnival Paradise? No.

Bingo was expensive ($20/game and one prize). Activity prizes were plastic boats. Possibly for the future a prize could be a "fountain fun card". The vegas style (a la 1980s) show at the Normandie was unimpressive to say the least. Multiple people walked out. The showing of Iron Man and Indy 4 was a plus.
Food and Dining
Sushi was served, unfortunately no one told the staff how to make it. Smoked salmon on rice is not sushi...This would have been better servied on a bagel with cream cheese.
Ship Quality
The pool area smelled like urine.
Cabin / Stateroom
The bed was comfortable.
Service and Staff
Staff was courteous, but noisy at night. Could not sleep a single night.
Ensenada, Mexico
There's nothing to see in Ensenada. This is a bad representation of the beauties of Mexico.
Don't Miss: Please miss Ensenada.
