2 out of 5
Sail Date: June 01, 2013
Ship: Carnival Paradise
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 4 years ago

The ship is BADLY in need of a makeover. From automatic doors that don't work to rust and peeling paint\, the ship is sorely outdated. Unfortunately\, the most alarming issue is the rather callous responses received from Guest Services when reporting / addressing issues.

Lido deck pool area very cramped\, and lots of dark or dimly lit hallways. There is a need for more pools.
