relaxing Baja Mexico cruise

Sail Date: August 03, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Arrived at 11:45 and was able to board ship without problems. Took own luggage. Able to enjoy buffet lunch and explore ship before the crowd. Main pool was small and even smaller w/the slide. Needed more pools on ship esp during at sea days. Friendly & helpful staff. Dining, buffet & grill had wonderful food but lines can be long. Mongolian grill was always crowded but food was good & healthy. Good shows but comedians weren't exactly family friendly. No place on ship had a good seating. Either obstructed or low back seating which wasn't comfortable.

Pros: good size cabin, friendly staff

Cons: no large pools

Recommends Carnival Paradise? Yes!

Catalina Island, California
Not much except for little shops if you're into shopping.
Don't Miss: snorkeling at Lover's Cove but bring water shoes cuz of the rocks/pebbles
Ensenada, Mexico
Not much but shopping areas. Couldn't find a beach to go to.
Catalina Island, California
snorkeling at Lover's Cover was the best. Average shops along the beach.
