We cruised 12/00 on the Paradise to the Western Caribbean for 7 days. Getting on the ship was smooth and easy. Cabins ok, mattresses in need of replacement. Food was pretty good. Enjoyed the entertainment a lot. The ship is quite beautiful! Lots of onshore things to do which were a lot of fun. Of course, the life boat test was chaotic and took way too long. The disembarkation was lengthy, but pretty well organized. Wish other cruise lines, such as Princess and Crystal, would at least have designated non-smoking cabins if not, one non-smoking ship. And as for Norwegian and Holland America, shame on them for not having one of their newer ships be completely non-smoking. I'm sure I speak for many people in saying there is a desire for non-smoking ships and we'd cruise on these others lines if their ship was non-smoking!!
