Our first cruise and last for awhile.

Sail Date: December 01, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Our first cruise. Had a 4&5 year old. It was so so. I had never wanted to go on a cruise before and this experience confirmed it for me. Surprisingly\, my wife\, who pushed for it hard\, didn't enjoy it very much either. Too many lines. Food stunk\, not friendly Camp Carnival employee\, yeah you Eastern Euopean nasty person. Fitness machines down\, lines\, crowds\, loud music\, ect...

Pros: The Huge ship experience

Cons: Food\, cheapness

Recommends Carnival Paradise? No.

Children's Programs
Sucked because of a nasty woman. Quit if you hate your job or kids.
Not enough. Lines and crowds everywhere. Most cost extra.
Service and Staff
For the most part\, extremely friendly. I asked an employee his work schedule and they work 4-6 months straight without a day off. To be this friendly without a break was impressive. Again\, the nasty woman fro Russia in the kids area ruined that experience for us to get any kind of break from the kids.
Cabin / Stateroom
Food and Dining
The dining room food was ok but the breakfast and lunch food was terrible.
