Not my cup of tea.

Sail Date: April 03, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was very spacious and clean. The staff was totally accommodating of our every request. Housekeeping kept our room neat and clean morning noon and night.

Pros: Staff was terrific. Treated us like royalty.

Cons: Both of us were seasick most of the time dispite meds.

Recommends Carnival Paradise? Yes!

Food and Dining
Plenty of places to eat a variety of foods. They seemed to have something for every taste and plenty of it. You could get food literally 24hours a day. Quality was not what I had expected. Sometimes the food in the main dining areas was only cafeteria quality. Other times the meals were excellent.
Ship Quality
The ship was kept very clean and orderly. Anything out of place or spilled was immediately taken care of by a very friendly staff.
Cabin / Stateroom
Very attentive housekeeping staff. They were truly a joy throughout our trip.
Service and Staff
Our steward went out of his way to accommodate our strange sleeping and resting times. As soon as we would leave our cabin, they would come in and remake the beds, clean the bathroom, leave new towels and tidy up everything. What a joy.
Even though we were both sick, we took in a stage show and enjoyed it very much.
Ensenada, Mexico
Again, we were sick and only had an hour or so in Ensenada so the rating isn't really representative. I did notice that the ship was almost empty that day, so lots of people got off the ship and were gone most of the day.
