5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 09, 2012
Ship: Carnival Paradise
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago
We appreciated the ability to bring wine on board and took advantage of it. Very clean, nice room, attentive staff. Entertainment was almost non existent for people who don't like vulgar jokes or double meanings. Spa was nice, but exercise room was lacking in basic equipment...I missed not having a rowing machine, and the spinner bikes were reserved for classes only.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food was not so good, they don't know the proper temperature of a cut of beef...when its medium rare or medium ....they brought it to me cold and bleeding. Even when I sent it back it was the same way. Also all cuts of beef were tough and had gristle. That was disappointing.

Off color jokes during a family Liars' Club. The shows were focused on Country , I was a little offended that the girls were bare stomached and short shorts and practically bare breasted. A bit offensive. The family hour comedy club was a bit naughty too.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
They remembered our names, our different languages, our preferences. Were Wonderful!!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was clean and neat at all times. Even on the last day!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Very comfortable beds, I wasn't crazy about the location since I had requested midship, and we got the aft.

Pros: The views

Cons: The Entertainment
