Review SummaryOur cruise on the Paradise was the first cruise for my 11 year old nephew. He walked into our state room and asked if he could live aboard a cruise ship! We love the size of our stern stateroom which was somewhat larger than the port or starboard rooms. The entrance through the atrium was a real wow and has completely spoiled the boy for hotel experiences. We loved the water slide and he was thrilled to find a video archade. Having his own sign and sail card made him feel like a grown-up and knowing there was a limit to howmuch he could charge in a day made the experience very stress free for me. I appreciated being seated with single women traveling with children for dining and I was further impressed that someone had taken the time to even match the age and gender of the children at the table!!
