Ship is 20yrs old & it shows, staff was excellent & food was pretty good. My family & I will go on other quality cruise lines b/c we want higher quality food & newer ships. Ive heard horror stories of Carnival, however, we did not experience any. We are looking for higher quality at all levels.

Pros and Cons

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Paradise | Sail Date: Jul 16, 2015

Music choices and players are improving.  Really enjoyed #Raptorpack.  Getting on and off as a VIFP is awesome.  Really enjoy being able to go right to the room.  The ship is getting older an needs attention.  Stateroom furnishings were simply worn out.  Still a great deal.

overall an enjoyable vacation but a few tweaks could have made it spectacular

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Paradise | Sail Date: Jul 16, 2015

This was my second cruise, the first being with royal. I feel that overall the experience was pleasant but I'm likely to cruise with Royal Caribbean in the future. There was a lot of alcohol pushing during dinner which was off putting, and the buffet selection left a lot to be desired.the entertainment was slim pickings with a lot of time slots with very little of interest going on. Cozumel was beautiful and that was definitely a plus as well as our ocean view room which had a large window.

Clean and Friendly

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Paradise | Sail Date: Jul 16, 2015

All staff members were friendly and catering. The boat was super clean. There was always something to do. It was a good cruise. The rooms are outdated in decorations...but the service for the room is nice. If you want to enjoy Mexico, this isn't the cruise for you....the time on land is too short.

Popular tips for Carnival Paradise.


Don't miss out on the brunches in the dining room; ask for a window seat.

do early evening diner, so you can see evening shows. Pool was small, but enjoyed the hot tub. Take time to get to know the ship when you first get on board. For the first time, it was nice and would go again.

Pizza and ice cream is great at midnight.
