Great cruise except the buffet

Sail Date: February 13, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Stateroom is clean and spacious - except it takes a while for the room to be cleaned.
The staff is excellent and very attentive.
Excursions to Ensenada were fun and appropriate for the time spent.
Formal dinners at Destiny and Elation Rooms were very good.
Dance clubs and bars were fun.
Buffet food was OK, and the lines were very long. There seems to be a lack of time management in preparing the buffet food. They cut off the food/lines too early.

Pros: Excellent staff

Cons: Buffet food is OK

Recommends Carnival Paradise? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
The formal dining rooms (Destiny and Elation Rooms) were great with good staff support. Poor food management and operating hours were too short at Paris Restaurant (buffet). Buffet lines were too long because of a lack of planning.
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Great performances by the singers/dancers, especially Tenea is the best.
