Unhappy 1st cruise after dry dock

Hi all, we're scheduled on Carnival Paradise leaving 3/26/2018, and we just found out it's coming out of dry dock the day before which is both exciting but terrifying at the same time. Has anyone ever experienced this situation before? My excitement is to see more dining options, having a clean ship?, everything being updated, fixed, freshly painted. My fears include things not being finished as scheduled, engine malfunction, etc.

Sorry, our experience on a cruise immediately after dry doc was not
good - but assume such can vary ?

Experiences included: no water, cold water, hot water 0nly, same for heat and air conditioning, leaks everywhere lots of buckets everywhere, strange dirt and smells. Waited 7 hours to board - everyone unhappy, etc.

HA emended up compensating all passengers - good move !!

Sincerely hope that your experience will bee MUCH better.

Only replied because you asked - - -

That is exactly what I'm worried about, but it could have been a fluke so I am keeping an open mind. Then again, we are known as the Griswalds whenever we travel, so of course it will be interesting.
