A fantastic time

Sail Date: May 11, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Very commercial but well orgainized. Expect to spend more than what you paid for the cruise.

Pros: Good value, met new friends, most of the staff are very friendly, plenty of activities

Cons: Spa service prices are a rip off. Very snobbish people there. Carnival posted a $50 credit on their website. They called the day before and left msg on our home phone mentioning the same. BUT one hour later called again and said it isn't so. Bottom line no credit.

Recommends Carnival Paradise? Yes!

Ship Quality
Good size and facililty.
Food and Dining
Good selection for buffet and formal dining.
Cabin / Stateroom
Roomy and clean.
Service and Staff
Overall staff quality is very good. Except the spa.
Very good entertainment all over the ship all day.
Catalina Island, California
Shops are nice and people there are friendly.
Don't Miss: Kayaking is really fun.
