4 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)

Ship: Carnival Paradise
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 4 years ago

This is our 4th cruise. Overall, the cruise was good. The ship is much smaller than other Carnival Ships.There were many things that we were happy with --the cabin stewards had cleaned our rooms each time we left the cabin, beds were comfortable, the food was good but not spectacular,the crew was friendly and helpful. But there are a few things we were unhappy with.-- the pillows are uncomfortable, the set up of the ship is not the best , i.e., the library is right across from the piano bar (too loud), the pool is small, there is no adult only pool, the shows were not family friendly, the photographs were blurry and if you are not prepared, they can be quite expensive. Dress code for the dining room , for casual dining, is too strict. Will not travel on this ship again although our other Carnival cruises were good.

It's a long walk from the ship to the land.
