Overall, good as always. The Paradise and her sisters are starting to show their age though. The food was good, not great. The activities are fine but, stale for those who have cruised on Paradise/Fantasy/Elation before. Guitar performers were WAY too loud. Bingo was fun. Casino was fun. Drinks are too expensive. Bought the Bottomless-Bubbles beverage cards for non-alcoholic drinks, was informed after the fact that there was an 11 cent charge per drink, and only one drink in a five-minute period. Wont do this again. Staff was excellent, cabin was great, except the trim around the bottom of the bathroom doorframe is rusted and falling apart in small chunks. Our randomly-assigned dinner companions we terrific company and lot's of fun. Booked shore excursion to snorkel/zip-line/rock-climb was great! Overall, a great mini-vacation and Carnival delivers again. Additionally, the staff we dealt with were excellent! We can't say enough about how helpful and polite they were. A real contrast to many modern customer service experiences. Bravo!

Our cabin was great, except the trim around the bottom of the bathroom doorframe is rusted and falling apart in small chunks. The room attendant was excellent, as always.

Ship Tip

Don't buy the Bottomless Bubbles cards until read all of the rules.
