4 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 03, 2014
Ship: Carnival Paradise
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 3 years ago

This was the worst vacation experience of my life. The staff was the only reason I gave them the 1-stars, which they don't even deserve. The host at dinner fought with us on the first evening because they separated all of us throughout the dining hall. The food was the worst. Everyone in my family became ill after our expedition. The food was raw, not well prepared, and tasted awful. I personally contracted H. Pylori and Campylobacter. I do not recommend this ship in particular. However, we will never return to take a Carnival cruise ever again. If you care about your health or your loved ones at all you will stay away from this cruise. 

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Disease ridden, awful tasting, ill prepared excuses for they call "food."

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
No activities. The Casino, again a place where you spend/lose money, was the only thing to do.


1 out of 5
Entertainment that no one understood. Lack luster at best.

Children's Programs

1 out of 5
What children's program? A game room isn't considering "children's program," that's a place to distract kids into throwing money away.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
There were some good people, but the majority of them didn't know what they were doing, they argued with us, and didn't do their job.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
In horrible shape. Like a dying animal that needed to be put down.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
Smelled terrible, looked terrible, the housekeeping was the worst. They didn't make our room once.

Ship Tip

Don't ever go on this cruise.
