Coulda been better

Sail Date: October 29, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

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.

Pros: the price and close proximity of the departure to my home

Cons: stateroom\, and buffet food

Recommends Carnival Paradise? No.

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.
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
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
many were nice\, some could not understand english\, dining room staff was good\, stateroom attendant was good. guest services and shore excursion staff was good
not very much variety and hard to attend certain things with the late dining time
