Had fun with my wife

Sail Date: March 28, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Overall the ship was about average. A little old but well maintain.

Pros: Being with my wife

Cons: The maitra d' name Rashead

Recommends Carnival Paradise? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
We had a room at the front of the ship and it was very rocky.
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
The waiter Deden was great. The maitra d' Rashead was rude and paid more attention to white guest than to guest of other color skin. I feel this person needs to be removed or put in a position where he does not come in contact with guest. This guy is a bigot.
It seem the entertainment staff was extremely loop sided. Entertainment staff consist mainly of white people. The ship being of all mixed nationality, this is not integrated. The Raggie music was great. The rap was hard to handle.
Service and Staff
This needs to be clarified. The Filipino staffs was excellent in every way. They were polite, friendly and very helpful. The Chinese staff was non-communicative and unapproachable. The Indian staff was down right rude. They act like you are bothering them. The white staff was fine but there were very few of them to be found.
Ensenada, Mexico
My wife and I wonder off the tourist area and into the native part of town. This was much better as we saw how these people really live. Felt terrible for the poor merchants. Seeing the tourist wasted hundreds of dollars in the Casio and on drinks and yet tries to drive the price of the souvenir down to a few dollars. That is not only unfair but unreasonable on the part of the tourist. These people needs to eat too. The tourist area was a waste of time.
Don't Miss: The poor part of the city where the real people live. But that may be too scary for most tourist.
