5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 01, 2014
Ship: Carnival Paradise
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago
This was my second cruise and my first on carnival. Even though the ship was older she still was very beautiful, well staffed by very friendly people, the food was awesome with many options. I would recommend this ship as the cruise director and his staff were hilarious, the comedy club had 2 great comics who do both a family and adult show. Even with an inside cabin at the bow of the ship on a lower deck we had no trouble sleeping, had plenty of room and the shower was really a good size (room for 2) and never ran out of hot water.

Ship Tip

Breakfast starts at 6am but the grill opens at 6:30, up early for a seat on deck to watch the sunrise. Even at 3am there was food available on deck 10 stern
