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.

Outstanding Thanksgiving Cruise by mwoods8

For a small older ship without all the bells and whistles of a large ship, the crew does a great job making it so much fun and having a lot of activities to keep you occupied. The cruise director and staff make it so much fun!!! This is my second time on this ship and I have been on many large ships, for some reason the photography staff does a better job than any ship I have ever been on hands down!

1st Caibbean Cruise by themansgmc

Overall this was a great trip. We would recommend this ship & cruise line. The staff were very accommodating. I didn't like the fact that there are no garbage cans anywhere (except the bathrooms) readily available. The gift shop could use a little more variety also. I didn't think the cruise was a kid friendly (teenagers)as it was advertised.

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.
