Carnival Paradise
Sail Date: September 01, 2015
Ship: Carnival Paradise
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 2 years ago
The ship was small but adequate for the adult's needs as we just wanted to relax and eat. Although\, I was very disappointed where Carnival chooses to hold its trivia challenges (right next to the bar and casino where you can not breathe because there are people smoking everywhere. We would have liked to do this activity with the kids but felt like we were suffocating every time we walked in that area of the ship.

Food and Dining

The food was very bland on this cruise. But\, the desserts were good.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
I give the average rating as\, again\, in the dining room we received very poor service. On the formal night\, our teenage sons and friends wore polo shirts with nice shorts and were told they couldn't eat in the dining room with us. Both the woman at the desk and the maitre d' were very rude to us. After they were sent away a family came in with a teenage son wearing shorts. We said something\, but obviously it was too late\, as our boys were already eating upstairs. We never received a formal apology from the maitre d' which was unacceptable to me.
