Very enjoyable cruise

Sail Date: July 30, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

This was the very first cruise I've taken, however I've been on smaller boats before and I noticed that the boat being so big rocked quite a bit when at sea. Overall, the cruise had many different entertainments and the casino provided a nice added entertainment.

Pros: I enjoyed that the cruise did it's best to keep one entertained while on the boat

Cons: Having to share dining table with many strangers

Recommends Carnival Paradise? Yes!

Ship Quality
The ship is a bit old in my opinion, but it is very clean, however being as old as it is I suppose there could be some upgrades made to the ship.
Service and Staff
Overall, I had a mixed response in the attitutde of the crew. Some were very nice and helpful, while others seemed as if they were tired of dealing with you and wished that you went away.
Food and Dining
The food at the main dining area was fantastic, however the food at the buffet was mediocre and could have been improved.
Cabin / Stateroom
The cleaning staff will clean your room at least twice a day and they are very friendly.
Entertainment
The cruise was very good at providing entertainment on board. The casino was a nice addition, and there were many different bars, clubs, and lounges on the casino where you can relax and have a drink.
Ensenada, Mexico
The city was very westernized and accomodated to many foreigners. Most of the people there spoke english so getting around was not too difficult. The city is not too south of the border and that is why it was not as different from where Tijuana.
Catalina Island, California
It is a very quiet and peaceful town, and the islanders were very courteous and the scenery was amazing. Kayaking, rafting, scuba diving is amazing, and one should take the time and participate in one of the shore excursions.
