Breaking in new cruisers

Sail Date: October 31, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Ship shows it's years of service, half of the elevators on our side of the ship were not working. I was very disappointed that you did not offer a seperate dinning resturant and we had to either eat casul or in the dinning room where we always had to share a table with strangers. We have been on many cruise lines but this was the first for our friends and I thought Carnival would be a good one to break in on. They were very disappointed on the level of service, the food in the dinning room and the long lines to board.

Pros: Ports of Call

Cons: Food

Recommends Carnival Paradise? No.

Ship Quality
Elevators not working, furniture in need of repair.
Food and Dining
Dinning room food seemed to be reheated, we ate all three meals here and found that the casual dinning food seemed prepared fresher.
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Catalina Island, California
really nothing to do and seemed to be a wate of travel time.
Don't Miss: Nothing to really see
Ensenada, Mexico
