5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 25, 2016
Ship: Carnival Paradise
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: U26

5th time on Paradise and still a great small ship for a short, reasonably priced trip. 30 years old and showing ware, but being renevated in January. Excellent entertainment, food, and service. Cruise director and assistant are excellent.And Tampa is an easy port to use. Also, the older ships have more shower room and closet space than the newer, larger ships.

Sea day brunch is a nice addition. The steak and eggs is a nice treat.

High energy and very good musical productions. Comedy not my style. Mr. Ortiz too filthy for my liking.
