5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 29, 2012
Ship: Carnival Paradise
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago

Ship was old and not very updated, stateroom was small and inconvenient. Had to get in to bed by crawling over the footboard and crawling up the bed. 1st morning, no hot water had to call for plumber. No mini-fridge for cold drinks, whats the sense of being able to bring drinks on-board but had no way to have them in the room cold. Was very hard to locate public restrooms.

Food and Dining

unable to get our preferred dining time. the food in the main dining room was pretty good\, but the food at the buffets was boring and the same day to day


1 out of 5
not very much variety and hard to attend certain things with the late dining time

Ship Quality

couldn't find public restrooms\, the elevators all went only to certain floors. In the morning the decks were not clean\, there were dirty glasses\, bottles\, cigarette butts about.
