5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 18, 2014
Ship: Carnival Paradise
Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

The Paradise is an older ship, but I feel she's been kept maintained pretty well.  She doesn't have all the bell's & whistle's the newer ships have, but she was comfortable and easy to navigate.  The food was good both in the MDR & at the Lido buffet.  The show's were also very good!


We don't really care for cruises less than 7 days, but my sister-in-law & her husband had never cruised before, so we booked a 5 night so they could see if they liked cruising or not.....yep, they loved it & I'm sure they will book another one!!!!!
