5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 24, 2015
Ship: Carnival Paradise
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

The Carnival Cruise to the Western Caribbean was better than I could imagine.  The ship was clean and decor outstanding.  The staff and crew were excellent along with the food, service and entertainment.  It was so relaxing waking up in the morning and seeing the ocean view not having to plan or drive to another location to get food or entertainment.

The only disappointment was who I booked the cruise with promised shipboard credits and it was never applied to my Onboard account.  When I called them from the ship I was put on hold and nothing ever was resolved.   Gary

Ship Tip

The Ships Director, entertainers, Captain and officers, waiters and waitress especially a waitress named IIS from Indonesia was excellent. Made service and other crew excellent the whole trip. Gym, sauna, steam room, hot tubs, pool very good. Great experience
