Nickle and Dime you to death. You pay for the cruise and then have to pay for water, soda, drinks and then ADD tip onto that AFTER paying the gratuity BEFORE your trip. If you want a basic, poor expectation, rude staff and very poor food, Carnival is for you.

We purchased Faster to the fun, so getting on and off the ship was even easier than it could have been. Crew was very nice, and made the effort to always remember us. The food at the chefs dinner was a definite highlight.

A New Year's Eve we will never forget!

We are already planning our next cruise. We have cruised as a family on several cruise ships including the OASIS OF THE SEAS but The Paradise was perfect for our family. It was small enough that we always found a family member and never worried about the kids.

Carnival Paradise

Jan 10th, 2020

This was our first cruise, and it was definitely an experience. The ship was rocking really bad pretty much whole time! Our excursion for Grand Cayman was canceled due to the swells and we even had to port somewhere else which was a huge disappointment for us. But Carnival allowed us to change our excursion. Cozumel was the same way. The waves were ridiculous! I think if we were to go on another cruise, we would go a different time of year. My husband and I aren’t very big partiers and for us, carnival was like a college frat house on the water lol. We did meet lots of nice people though! The food was alright, the food that they provide for dinner was nothing of my taste... (picky eater) the tea was nasty... one of the ladies at guest services was not the brightest of sunshine. We had lots of questions of course and she was rude a couple of times. But other than that, it was a good time!
