A cruise that fell short

Sail Date: August 06, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

The rooms were shabby, most staff were not friendly/helpful, and the food was horrible.

Pros: Cozumel was great. Lots of shopping and places to explore

Cons: The captain put us in harms way and sailed directly thru a storm. Nearly the entire ship (including staff) was vomiting the entire day

Recommends Carnival Paradise? No.

Ship Quality
The food layout was ridiculous. They kept moving the lines around and the condiments came before the food making for long lines and cranky passengers. Staff left the tables dirty so there wasn't enough places to sit.
Food and Dining
The food was terrible. Most was not edible. The quality was cheap
Cabin / Stateroom
The room was shabby no better than your college dorm room. The window was so dirty that you could barely see out. The carpets were worn to the threads.
Service and Staff
Noone went above and beyond. The casino staff were mean\, the dining staff were slow and grumpy\, the customer service staff could care less about your comfort and were only interested in not spending any money
The entertainment was poor. The couldn't perform due to the storm for one of the sea days. The comedian performed 2 times but only had one 15min show. The lead male singer couldn't sing.
