August 2016 - 5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Paradise
I have been on several cruises with different companies, this was the worst. The ship needs to be put out of service or made into a couples only retreat. There was very little to do except drink. You couldn't even get in the very small pool --they only had one for the adults and that had the slide so the many, many kids used that one along with the pool reserved for them. The shows were very basic with very thought put into them. To be fair the ship is so small that there is no room for more entertainment or amenities. However, there was no excuse for the food. The Lido deck buffet was an embarrassment. The food in the dining hall was better but not much. It was a disappointing cruise. The one good thing was the people who served us and waited on us. Very, very wonderful people.
