5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)

Ship: Carnival Paradise
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: M38
Traveled As: Family (young children)

Over all had a great time, never a dull moment, so much to do so little time. Recommend early or flexible dining options as to be able to catch more shows, and activities.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Too many tempting choices on the menu, hard to choose just one starter, one main entree, and one dessert. Buffet on Lido deck was a bit limited, not quite as good as main dining rooms.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
So much to do so little time, different shows every night, karaoke bar, comedy, and night club

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
Dr Suess program for children, and Camp Carnival for older kids up to 17 years, basketball court, ping-long tables, giant chess, video arcade.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Crew extremely friendly and helpful. Wife became friends with many of the crew.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Paradise is an older ship but well kept, easy to get around, although elevators are slow. This ship is as big as you are going to get in Tampa Bay due to clearance of the Sunshine/Skyway bridge.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
A bit small, but adequate since we only used state room for changing and sleeping.

Ship Tip

If possible pack light and use unassisted disinformation option. Pack water in checked baggage.
