Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

The ships decor is very outdated. We went with our small children not a good idea as there are no activities for them to do. the pools are small, the kids pool is tiny and over filled with people. The dining room has dimmed lighting and now we know why. My son was served raw chicken please look at your food well. We had food poisoning the second night. And suffered the rest of the trip, the waiter told us do not say anything they will lock you in your stateroom for 2 days...

Pros: THe ending of this crusie was the beat part

Cons: FOOD POISONING horrible served raw chicken

Recommends Carnival Paradise? No.

Ship Quality
Not a very clean ship\, decor is very outdated. dime lighting hoping you do not notice all the flaws...
Food and Dining
horrible\, I have read the reviews and can not figure out where people say the food is top rate. They must never had taken another cruise before. Nothing to compare... Well I have and the food on the paradise was not so good..
Cabin / Stateroom
Ugly\, dated and had a smell. Mattress had springs pooping out\,
Service and Staff
The staff was the best part of the trip.\, They are honest and will tell you the truth about everything.
Unless you have no kids they lack in this area. If you go kid-less you have as better chance of liking what they have to offer. Now if you have older kids the have 2 clubs for them ages 13-16 and 17-18. we were in shock...
Children's Programs
Camp carnival is a joke..they are just baby sitters and that's all..Not qualified to handle more than 5 kids at a time..
