5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 12, 2016
Ship: Carnival Paradise
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: V24
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 1 year ago

Our upgraded state room was extremely dated, used and less than accommodating (poor visual acuity, broken wardrobe cabinet hinges)

The Staff and Entertainment were exceptional as always.

Tampa is the perfect port to leave and arrive from....

Food and Dining

During formal night a jacket as a minimum should be required for dining or refer passengers to the lido deck is always an option. Sorry to see lobster night go as part of dinner. Outside of these two responses we had a fun time and enjoyed our dining with carnival as always.

The ship is dated, but the deck plan is good for our crew.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
Our upgraded state room dated and TV had poor acuity. Cabinets were less than desirable. I can take photos the next time. I am sure the lower broken hinge on the 3rd wardrobe cabinet is still broken, tv is the same.

Ship Tip

If you are looking for a quick get away and a dated ship isn't a concern? This Fun Ship is for you!

Cozumel is a great port and are building up the area around the port to better accommodate cruise goers. I could do without the hustlers, however part of the experience : )
