Ship: Carnival Paradise | Sail Date:

We were having a reunion of friends and they planned this cruise mostly on location of departure and price. We love the reunion but the ship needs a refurb. It was worn and food was mediocre. Cabin steward was great and kept our very plain room orderly.  The beds  and pillows were really good and nice linens.

It was our first cruise and we were celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary!  It was so much fun! We want to book another cruise very soon! Had a great time enjoying the entertainment onboard and the food and drinks were excellent!  Great value for the price!

We had a party of four, the other three, it was their first cruise, so we made it a short trip, to make sure everyone would like it,  well by the time we got back to Tampa, we would've gone right back out if we'd had the time, needless to say

Carnival does a great job,  on board entertainment was excellent, food was great

our two stops, Grand Caymans, and Cozumel,   I Guess Cozumel was the best time for us, even though we liked both places

if you have any worries or doubts,  drop them and book a trip,  you'll be glad you did

The PARADISE is not one of the biggest ships you can get on,  but I do not like big crowds, so this was a prefect set up for us

We had a good time.  Food in the dinning room was poor.  We had expected better quality of food.  Buffet had better food.  Fresh and cooked.  

 

The crew were exceptional.  The ship was old and somewhat dirty.  We enjoyed the shows.

I still remember my first family cruise aboard the Carmival Celebration about 20 years ago, as an amazingly memorable, fun, entertaining, and exciting experience for the whole family! This cruise was my first hosting my family as a mother and to say it didn't disappoint is an understatement.  

The crew was incredibly welcoming and hospitable.  From our room steward, Nengah, to our waiter, Rahmat, we were very happy with the superb service and smiling faces.  We are a family of five, and our three children (ages 10, 8, and 6) were fortunate to befriend Ryan early on in the cruise. Between asking them questions on the microphone, running races with them, and reserving the best seats for the Epic Rock show, Ryan really made them feel like VIPs and helped make the vacation extra special.

The excursion we chose was visiting Muyil, Caverns, and Beach Lunch. I am still blown away by everything we were able to experience in the time we were there.  We were able to ride a ferry, snorkel in underground caverns, visit ancient Mayan ruins, hike through a tropical forest, eat an authentic Mexican lunch, and play at one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen!  Our tour guide Roberto was helpful and informative.

The entertainment was incredible. I was looking forward to showing the kids the musical shows cruises have to offer, but was truly blown away myself by the talent and production value of the Playlist Production shows!  Henry, Luke, and Stephanie chatted with us and our children after the final performance and the kids will forever remember it as "hanging with celebrities".  

All in all, this trip was beyond fantastic for the entire family. We will all carry the memory of this trip for a lifetime and I am truly thankful for everyone who helped make it special!

the dinner menu needs to be updated.  the shows were not appealing to everyone...  the buffet was not good, not appealing to everyone... you are taking southern passengers to other parts of the world... they need to have southern food. most work and don't have time for good southern comfort food.  more shopping for children on board... grandparents want gifts to take back to grandchildren.

Fantastic Ports and Crew!

Ship: Carnival Paradise | Sail Date:

The ports on this trip are awesome! We've done this same trip 3x in the past 5 years. Never disappointed. The Paradise is a big enough boat w/out being too big or too small. The crew was great, in both personality and efficiency. Highly recommended.

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.
