Carnival Paradise
5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 15, 2016
Ship: Carnival Paradise
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: R173
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 1 year ago

There was a fire the first night, evacuated from my room. The air did not work well. Speaker did not work at all. Food was not very good. They switched our port days because of boat issues and could not go max speed. Our times at each port was cut very short. The pool was very small and salty. Bathrooms and elevators would be out of service for periods of time. Very disappointed with the overall experience.
