5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 29, 2016
Ship: Carnival Paradise
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: R23
Traveled As: Couple

Favorite part of the cruise was docking at the ports and seeing the sights and doing the excursions. More daytime activities need to be scheduled during the day, not everyone came on the cruise to shop for jewelry and play bingo. The ship was very, very rough due to inclement weather but we didn't think that it was going to be to the magnitude that it was. It shouldn't cost a small fortune to buy the Dream photos if you're interested in doing so.

Dolphins and stingrays were amazing but stingray bay was super crowded and really chaotic. Not enough time to enjoy the port. Literally went to the excursions and back to the ship.

AMAZING EXCURSIONS WITH FANTASTIC GUIDES AND A WONDERFUL LUNCH! We had plenty of time to fit everything in. Really great day!
