Review SummaryWe recently went on a 4-day cruise on the Carnival Paradise to Catalina Island and Ensenada, Mexico. The room steward was great but everything else was average. The room was functional. The food was so-so. We had asked for MyTime dining but when we got on ship we were told that was not available. They assigned us to the late dinner which was difficult with two children. We ate in the buffet area for most of the time. The open atrium area was too smokey. Probably coming from the open casino. I've been on many other cruises and think this one was just average. I don't think I will go Carnival again.
