Carnival Paradise Cruise Review to Mexico

Experience: 1 cruise (first)
Review: 1
Helpful Votes: 0

Overall Rating:

4 out of 5
Sail Date: January 01, 2008
Ship: Carnival Paradise
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 10 years ago

I found the ship to be clean and modern, not crowded with lots of places to wander around and explore. The vibe was friendly, kind of like Vegas without the edge.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
I had heard of visions of lobsters and kobe steaks being served as appetizers and I didn't see any of that but the food was still really good and available. I liked the different international theme menus and the cheeseburgers. Wasn,t that thrilled with the formal dining.


3 out of 5
Didn't do the late night scene too much. Advice for Catalina: rent a golf cart, best way to see the sights. For Ensenada: Don't bother.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff was friendly and helpful. I was impressed with how many different nationalities were represented. They seemed happy so I am assuming they are being treated well.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The library was nice but was only open a few hours a day. Some current magazines and papers would make it much nicer.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
I was solo so I had the cabin to myself but it was roomy clean and comfortable.

Pros: The staff/guests and the overall vibe

Cons: $7.50 for a 25 oz beer, $5.50 for a small screwdriver

Recommends Carnival Paradise? Yes!
