An Average Cruise For Teenagers

Sail Date: July 01, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

The ship did not have a lot of entertainment for the teens. Club O2 closed randomly. All the employees however were wonderful. They folded animal towels whenever they serviced our room, and even gave us minty chocolate!

Pros: I liked how there was a fitness room open to people 13+. Also liked the all day buffet. Employees were super friendly! The 2 after dinner shows were cool ;)

Cons: Pools were a bit disappointing in size and warmth. Mini-golf became boring. Ping pong tables were sometimes all taken.

Recommends Carnival Paradise? No.

Ship Quality
Toilet smelled kind of bad in our room. The showers changed from warm to hot to little bit cold. My hair was dry after swimming in their salt water pool and using their shampoo. Not sure if it's the shampoo or the pool. P.S., now my hair is back to normal after using my own shampoo and swimming in fresh water.
Children's Programs
Food and Dining
Had lots of choices and different menus. Every dinner was something different. Never ate the same meal 2 days in a row. Just know that some stuff in the buffet are served for dinner at your choice.
Cabin / Stateroom
Loved the pull down beds! We fit 4 in an interior stateroom, each person with their own twin size bed.
