Not overly satisfied by gabriellad

Overall very disappointed. I am pregnant and had barely anything to do that didn’t involve drinking, gambling, or spending money in some way. Will not be choosing carnival again or recommending it to anyone.

Excellent, would definitely go again by CantaraRiley

Verified Review

The cruise itself was amazing. No issues, and the food was really good for the most part. There was an issue one night were an announcement was sent to the entire ship and state rooms, asking for all crew to report to stations. It worried a lot of people, but later it turned out that there had been a fire in the crew quarters and someone pushed the wrong announcement button. Other than that, the whole cruise was very relaxing and enjoyable.

Great Cruise by mitchgrant

Verified Review

Shortage of staff, rooms and bathrooms smaller. Only one chair in cabin. Food not up to Carnival's standards. A lot of rude guest that did not have any consideration for other guest. Too many scoters and wheel chairs.

Much needed break! by martinr67260517

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This is our 3rd time on the Paradise, and quite honestly, we were expecting a little more than we got. While certain parts of the ship seemed to have been given attention, troubling ventilation in the room and in the Casino areas were a few of the disappointments. The over crowding at the main pool was by nature of only having one pool, but there just didn't seem that much to do. We will return to Carnival mainly because of the food and service. The Paradise is a good starter ship for those never having gone on a cruise, but we will be seeking out other ships in the fleet next time.

Great cruise for relaxing. Had rough seas and some rain but it didn't take away from a good time on the ship.

Surviving Hurricane Michael by bcrrn1973

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Very disappointing. I will not do a carnival cruise again. I would not recommend a carnival cruise again. I was not impressed that during a hurricane that the captain came over the load speaker to update us on the storm and had a very thick accent that was difficult to understand, and that someone did not come on the intercom after to translate or to tell us what was said. We felt out of the loop.

We had a great time! I am booking my next Carnival cruise this week! This was my first time sailing in an interior room and I was pleasantly surprised at how much room we had. Thanks for the outstanding service in every area!

Wonderful cruise to the Grand Cayman and Cozumel! by savesabanal

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The Carnival Paradise staff always went way and beyond to provide the services to their customers. The ship was on the small side, and the buffet line can get very long during peak hours. Also, the breakfast menu in the buffet needs a little bit more variety. Lunch was awesome though, as it changes almost every day (i.e. Caribbean, French, Mexican, etc. on different days).

Wonderful Caribbean Cruise by claribel32

Verified Review

This cruise excel my expectation, from beginning to end. The only thing I can say was disappointing was in the size of the pool, is really small for the amount of people in the boat, in a 5 day trip i only had a opportunity to go in on the day we visited Cozumel, I went shop around and came back to the boat just to be able to enjoy some sun and pool time with my family.

Great First Cruise by FlaCrzr

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Fantastic experience. Everything was first rate. The behind the scenes tour was a highlight for us. Captain Bonica and the crew were personable and clearly wanted the experience to be memorable. Our cabin steward and wait staff were most attentive. Every encounter with staff and crew were pleasant. Everyone was smiling and really made certain any needs were met. We will definitely sail with Carnival again.

Great Time by foxscullyus

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Carnival always has better food than RCL. We did the Chef's Table and it was extensive but I wasn't really impressed, beware that they charge a service charge on the surcharge but they don't tell you that. I called and got the service charge refunded. I guess I wasn't impressed because I am such an extensive chef myself. It was a lot of fancy little dishes. I think it was the crab that made me throw up that night. I frankly would have rather done the Captains Reception and ate Prime Rib instead. :)
