A fun 3-nite cruise

Sail Date: July 17, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

The ship is very clean and well maintained. It is spacious -- about the length of 2 football fields -- yet is designed in such a way that it does not feel overwhelmingly huge. the atrium is beautiful in daytime and all lit up in the evening. I went with my 11 year old son and we both had a great time. The seawater pool with a waterslide was refreshing. There are several dining rooms, the food was really good, and there were many activities for all ages. Music, shows, hanging out by the pool, and the many nooks and crannies for you to sit and talk provided places for everyone. Eventhough there were 2000 people on the ship, it never felt crowded. My son's favorite food was the sushi bar and the afternoon tea at the piano bar. we enjoyed the musical revue show.

Pros: I loved this entire experience. The staff were friendly and helpful, and made it fun!

Recommends Carnival Paradise? Yes!

Ship Quality
Everything was clean and well maintained. We loved being able to explore the entire ship.
Food and Dining
The variety and quality of the food options exceeded our expectations! Many times we enjoyed the stir fry vegetables and shrimp, chicken and beef, and loved the sushi bar. we were so full that we chose not to go to the elegant dining room (where they served lobster, shrimp and other nice meals)
Cabin / Stateroom
We had an interior room on level U. It was spacious for us -- lots of closet and drawer space for unpacking. There was a desk and a side table in addition to the 2 beds. The beds were really comfortable , and it was very quiet.
