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.

Not overly satisfied by gabriellad

Overall very disappointed. I am pregnant and had barely anything to do that didn’t involve drinking, gambling, or spending money in some way. Will not be choosing carnival again or recommending it to anyone.

We loved the experience ! The only thing we didn't like was the way the customer service lady talked to us.She didn't seem like she wanted to help at all. But everything else was great!

The cruise itself was amazing. No issues, and the food was really good for the most part. There was an issue one night were an announcement was sent to the entire ship and state rooms, asking for all crew to report to stations. It worried a lot of people, but later it turned out that there had been a fire in the crew quarters and someone pushed the wrong announcement button. Other than that, the whole cruise was very relaxing and enjoyable.

Great Cruise by mitchgrant

Shortage of staff, rooms and bathrooms smaller. Only one chair in cabin. Food not up to Carnival's standards. A lot of rude guest that did not have any consideration for other guest. Too many scoters and wheel chairs.

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.
