Cruising with a pre-teen
Carnival Paradise Cruise Review to Mexico
Sail Date: July 13, 2007
Ship: Carnival Paradise
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (young children)

Our 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!!
