Great Time! Great four day crusie!

Sail Date: June 29, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Both my wife and I were impressed with hospitality staff, they were very thorough and kept the ship clean and shiny! We had an Ocean view room and were pleased. It was just enough. We are not sure of the age of the ship, but can tell it is a few decades old. However it is still a good ship and it is a good ship for a four day cruise.

Pros: We loved it all! The shows, waiters, hospitality staff, etc.

Cons: The constant sales picth from the Cruise director to give them a good rating.

Recommends Carnival Paradise? Yes!

Ship Quality
The ship has plenty of room and space for fun, sun, and games.
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Most of the staff was happy and willing to help, however some seemed burnt out, and possiblly needed a break.
Ensenada, Mexico
The port was ok. But the Quad ATV Tour we took through Extreme Tour Baja, was Awesome. They have an excellent facility, new Quads, and keep their operation super clean.
Catalina Island, California
Overall it was Beautiful! However the Kayak Excursion was overpriced. You can actually do more Kayak by not booking the event through the ship's concierge. Go to the same Kayak company though. They have a better location and Kayak trial. However you should book through the ship's concierge when choosing what to do in Ensenada Mexico. It is to much of a risk not to.
