nice cruise, very relaxing

Sail Date: December 14, 2007

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The musical shows were entertaining and the casino was fun. We didn't care much for the comedy shows (not very funny and used racist jokes). We enjoyed the tv programming when resting and the crew was very polite and attentive, the stateroom service was excellent and they greeted us by name each con was the room temperature (cold)....the food really good, the selection was wonderful, pastries, fruits, etc.

Pros: the food

Cons: drinks expensive and costly photos on board were hard to resist

Recommends Carnival Paradise? Yes!

Ship Quality
easy to learn to move around the ship, condition was good and decor was fun and like a casino-vegas type, clean and accessible.
Cabin / Stateroom
We stayed in the main deck level 5 stateroom M11 was very noisy, it appeared as if we were inside the engines, so loud it would wake us every time the ship stopped at the ports...might have been the location of our stateroom...we couldn't sleep late on arrival to the port because of the loudness in the room and also the temperature of the room very cold. Size wise and bed comfort were great, towels clean and acceptable amenities.
we wished they had more shows on board (only one each night) and more fun activities.
Food and Dining
24 hour food great, coffee not so good, more like colored water but the food was good.
Service and Staff
everyone very friendly and polite at all times.
Ensenada, Mexico
the city tour was a waste of time, took us to an old winery to taste bad wine they hoped we would buy and then to a "casino" not longer open as one since it's illegal in Mexico but used nowdays for private parties, there was a small courtyard with tables setup with souvernirs for sale..... we could have walked from the port to downtown and shopped without the tour which was basically a shopping tour (left us there to shop around, not much explanation regarding city's history, etc).
Don't Miss: nothing
