5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 17, 2011
Ship: Carnival Paradise
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 6 years ago

The Ship was Larger and Pretty - but as first time cruisers we were very disappointed in the disorganization. It took us a LOT Longer to get our luggage than we were told, and then there were no instructions as to what was where or what to do for 1 1/2 days. Feel as if that time was wasted.
Our 11 yr old daughter wanted to watch shows, but they were way past her bedtime. The kids area was mainly YOUNGER kids and the boat has a policy NOT to allow 11 yr olds to be with 12 + olds. She was VERY disappointed
