Overview

Carnival Paradise is a Fantasy-class ship with Carnival Cruise Line.The 2,052-guest vessel debuted in 1998, and currently sails from Tampa, Florida to Cuba, the Caribbean, and the Panama Canal. This large ship offers many activities to choose from, like the Twister waterslide, mini golf, Hasbro, The Game Show, and Playlist Production theater shows. Kids onboard have their own Camp Carnival youth clubs - which are divided up by age - and the Seuss at Sea programming, which includes Cat in the Hat meet and greets, parades, themed crafts, and a Green Eggs & Ham breakfast. Adults onboard can unwind in a space just for them, called Serenity Retreat. This open-air deck space includes lots of loungers, hammocks, and a full bar. For mealtime, head to Carnival Paradise's main dining room for the classic cruise dining experience, or the lido buffet if you want to go 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 heightened evening meal or are celebrating a special occasion, consider booking the Chef’s Table, where a small number of guests are served an elegant multi-course meal that is explained and presented by one of the ship’s head chefs.

It was Wonderful! by Ctjackson1

Over all my cruise was wonderful. Didn't like the idea I had to go to customer desk to get my name tags the line was always long. My husband was also told he could get the cheers package if I got the soda package this was not true. We both had to buy a cheers package and I don't drink like that. This made no sense to me but we didn't get it because everyone told us it's not worth it if you don't drink a lot. My husband got most of his drinks off the ship.

Nice trip with an excellent staff. They go above and beyond. Food and choices weren't the greatest, otherwise the trip was a good getaway.

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.
