5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 01, 2013
Ship: Carnival Paradise
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 1 year ago

This was a joint cruise with out of town friends. We had 10-12 of us at all ages. This is a nice ship, we are just used to much larger ships. We spent a lot of time in the casino and won big. Learned roulette on the ship. The decor was dated and the ship way way too small for us. We had fun, staff was great but the shows were lacking and the food was OK. I haven't been on a bad cruise yet so I will recommend this ship if you don't like the larger ones, less people.
