5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 25, 2012
Ship: Carnival Paradise
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 5 years ago

The ship was smaller than what we were used to and there wasn't enough for my kids to do (ages 12, 16 and 18.) How many times can a kid play mini-golf and ping pong?

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The servers were awesome. Availability and quality of food was good.


1 out of 5
The pool on the ship was smaller than the one in our back yard - for 2500 guests? Pool chairs weren't always available. No real entertainment for teens and not a lot of entertainment for adutls.

Children's Programs

My 12 year old enjoyed the Circle C program for one day, but then didn't want to go back.
