5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 06, 2016
Ship: Carnival Paradise
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: R19
Traveled As: Couple

The overall cruise experience was a bit lacking compared to my expectations.  We went on the cruise to celebrate my girlfriends birthday.  The cabin was old and dated in need of renovation.  The cabin was extremely noisy due to machinery and maintenance limiting out ability to sleep at night.  I ordered the Birthday package which arrived a day late.  We also didn't care for being treated like cattle during the muster drill in the rain or re-boarding the ship at the ports of call.  The food was inconsistent in terms of quality from day to day.  We found the on-board activities lack interest during our two days at sea.
