A good cruise for a quickie!

Sail Date: June 01, 2009

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Inside

No smoking Casino on 4 day cruise but they allow smoking on 3 day cruise! Deck layout is nuts. Some elevators only go to certain floors and not all floors allow you to pass through so it can be nuts getting from one end to the other. Not bad if you can climb stairs but we were with elders who had to take elevators. Ship is a little outdated. Shower was dirty and tile in bathroom and pool area was really outdated. Overall public areas were clean and food was good to great. Would do it again for a cheap and quick fun cruise. Mattress was hard (not bad, just hard) unlike the Elation that has wonderful beds. We were on floor 7 towards the front of the ship on the Empress deck room E20 and you will hear the shows from the Normandy Loung right above you. Typically you are either at the show or out of your room anyway but if you were going to bed early or want to nap while a show is on forget it.

Pros: Food was good to great

Cons: Crazy Deck layout

Recommends Carnival Paradise? Yes!
