A very enjoyable cruise!

Sail Date: April 07, 2008

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

The entire cruise experience was delightful - - from check-in, the cruise and final destination. We would like to see the ship go out further in the ocean, as opposed to circling around. That did cause some stomach problems.

Pros: Dining

Cons: Salt water swimming pool; expensive excursions on land

Recommends Carnival Paradise? Yes!

Ship Quality
Overall, PERFECT 10. No hygiene problems to note.
Food and Dining
Dining was more than we could expect, especially the quality of food served. Thank you.
Cabin / Stateroom
This was a complete surprise - - much better than ever expected.
Service and Staff
You're staff has obviously been selectively hand-picked. Thank you. They upheld the epitomy of being professional, courteous and respectful.
We'd like to see more inter-active activities for the pre-teens (10 - 12). My son, was embarrassed to join the dancing; there were too many folks playing ping-pong. We'd like to see rock-climbing and perhaps board games.
Children's Programs
Safety was our primary concern when initially booking and boarding the ship. Once on the cruise - - our worries were overcome by the "kindness & welcoming" of the cruise staff. Thank you.
Ensenada, Mexico
Once again, fun, yet too expensive.
Catalina Island, California
Fun, yet too expensive.
