Food and Dining

3 out of 5
main courses, steak and fish, were served at a temperature lower than expected. We had to wait for food at the assigned table for about an hour each night.

Blowhole is a must see ... pressure from sea water. Not much to shop in the surrounding area. Anyway, I bought a leather belt for $10 after bargaining from $47. So prepare to bargain ....

Not much different from mainland. I would rather stay on the ship next time

Pros: Ship interior and decorations

Cons: Food and drink . It took approximately 60 minutes for dinner to be served. Orange juice and lemonade are well below standard

Recommends Carnival Paradise? Yes!
