5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 09, 2016
Ship: Carnival Paradise
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: U178
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Small ship which is convenient and easy to navigate. Older style but very clean and for small ship, had 3 pool areas.  BUT the food was bar far the worst of any cruise I have ever taken.  If you like burgers and hot dogs everyday, then you will be fine, otherwise, bring your own food.  The lunch and buffet items are very, very limited and almost always the same.  The fine dining is somewhat better in terms of appetizers and desserts but don't plan on gourmet dinner options.Sad
