3 Night Baja Mexico (Los Angeles Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 29, 2006
Ship: Carnival Paradise
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 11 years ago

Big ship with many options. Great formal dining and friendly staff. Too expensive for only three nights (one full day off ship). Drinks should be included or each passenger should get a couple free drinks per day allotted. When people are on vacation, they enjoy a few more drinks than normal, but it's painful to slide that card and know that your cruise is actually costing more by the hour. (Or at least make drinks a dollar or two, not full price like at a restaurant.)
