A Little Disappointing

Sail Date: July 08, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Inside

The service was excellent and staff very friendly. Unfortunately, the mature guests were greatly out-numbered by young people who were loud and crowded all of the hot tubs and pool side. The food was a little disappointing--not what I remembered from cruises I took during the 90s.

Pros: The service

Cons: The number of young people there to get drunk and pick each other up

Recommends Carnival Paradise? No.

Cabin / Stateroom
My room was not great--very small and no window. My kids had a much larger room with 2 port holes. The decor was okay.
Ship Quality
The decor was a little cheesy. It was clean and easily navigated.
Food and Dining
I remembered very high quality food from my past cruises. The buffet type food was very bland, and the dinner entrees were disappointing. It seemed more like food from a chain restaurant than haute cuisine.
Service and Staff
Our staff were great--everyone of them.
