A good family vacation

Sail Date: November 19, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

Ship was very clean and well organized. All crew were very friendly and would provide any service you could ask for. Getting started and ending the cruise were well organized and all information provided was accurate and helpful.

Pros: Well organized, both Priceline and Carnival; good value for the money spent - there is nothing really "missing" from the ship experience

Cons: Things beyond control: ships roll around a lot, weather could have been better

Recommends Carnival Paradise? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
I had an inside room and a room with a window would have helped as it is hard to know the weather, etc. with no window. The room was chilly as there is A/C but no heat. The room was good size. The service by the steward was wonderful. Everything was very clean. Lots of towels for bathing or pool side, plus robes in your room for comfort. First class service. Room service was wonderful too.
Entertainment
There are activities ongoing. The evening shows are fun and the young performers are giving it their all. I think that if the weather had been warmer deck sitting could have been better for myself but there is nothing the ship can do about that. There is always music from a band or something going on.
Service and Staff
Totally devoted to your well being and comfort. The restaurant staff had a little birthday party for my adult daughter complete with singing and magic tricks. There is nothing that staff would not provide upon request; a real highlight. Better that any resort staff that I have experienced.
Ship Quality
Your home should be so clean and organized. Like being in a first class hotel really with very nice staff.
Food and Dining
There is more varied food available than can be consumed. Lines were reasonable especially if you can let the families with kids go first. Most of the walk up food is good, but not great if you know what great food is. The dinner seatings were very professional and the food was an upgrade from the line-up lunch areas. Ambiance was good in the restaurants, wait staff very professional.
Ensenada, Mexico
A nice way to spend a couple of hours walking around and shopping. Tours are available once in town from the locals for far less than on the ship. A clean little town where the shopping area is really oriented towards tourism.
Catalina Island, California
A cute place with shopping available. A tour might have helped but my daughter's passed on the opportunity. It is cute but not a must see.
