Carnival Paradise might have debuted in 1998, but one of Carnival’s oldest ships has undergone some enhancements over the years with the latest being a month long dry dock in 2018. Carnival Paradise is now equipped with the latest Funship 2.0 enhancements, including new cabins and venue upgrades. This large ship now offers even more activities to choose from, like the Twister waterslide, mini golf, Hasbro: The Game Show, and Playlist Production theater shows.

Younger kids (ages 2-11) have their own space, Camp Ocean, where they’ll participate in organized activities from contests to arts-and-crafts. Thanks to Carnival’s partnership with Dr. Seuss, you’ll find Cat in the Hat meet and greets, parades, themed crafts, and even a Green Eggs & Ham breakfast. Adults can unwind in Serenity Retreat, a space just for grown-ups complete with loungers, hammocks, hot tubs, and a full bar. The Majestic Casino, Spa Carnival and Alchemy Bar are also worth a visit.

For mealtime, head to Carnival Paradise's main dining room for the classic cruise dining experience, or the lido buffet if you want something a bit more casual. On sea days, there’s a special sea day brunch where you can enjoy both breakfast and lunchtime favorites, including a few quirky and fun offerings. Other choices include the Pizza Pirate for a quick slice or the Mongolian Wok when you’re craving some stir fry. If you’re looking for a classy evening meal or want to celebrate a special occasion, consider booking the Chef’s Table, where a small number of guests are treated to an elegant multi-course meal presented by one of the ship’s head chefs.

Sailing year round from the Tampa, Florida cruise port, Carnival Paradise itineraries include short, 4-5 night Caribbean Cruises, along with special sailings to Havana, Cuba.

An Extroverts Cruise Line by Bennett1223

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

There were 3 main problems I had with this cruise: 1. The lack of quiet areas. If you want to read, look outside or play games, it is near impossible to find a nice place to sit without music. (It is definitely a cruise line for extroverts!) 2. The layout of the ship. Because there was no deck that went all the way around, I couldn't walk laps. It was very oddly laid out. 3. The lack of activities I enjoyed. Most activities were late at night, for kids, or paid for only. I was really hoping to play bingo, just for fun, but it cost money to participate. Very disapointing.

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

Go early before everyone wakes up for breakfast and avoid the wait. Book the early dinner. The pizza was very good along with the omelets and sandwiches.
