Paradise was partially paradise

Sail Date: January 07, 2013

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was small what I expected. Food great wait staff wonderful. The last night of cruise our room was not cleaned expected to find a nice towel animal but found unmade beds. Felt a lot of motion and became a bit sea sick. Grand Cayman was disappointing. Cozumel was wonderful took a cab to Paradise beach, the sand was a little rough on the feet and the water a little cold but the sun was wonderful. Would sail Carnival again, but a bigger ship. The last day of cruise it seemed many people were coughing and getting sick, some in our group became ill with respiratory illness and rashes.
