A fun cruise for the whole family!

Sail Date: October 01, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

The ship was very spacious with a lot of open common areas.

Pros: Excellent food, many activities for the kids.

Cons: Our room was directly beneath the galley area...very noisy starting at 4:30 am.

Recommends Carnival Paradise? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
Staterooms were small as was expected. Decor could use some updating. We had an inside cabin which needed more lighting. Location was terrible, we were beneath the galley.
Ship Quality
Moderate sized ship in good condition. Good layout with a lot of common space. Decor of stateroom could use some updating. Ship was clean.
Food and Dining
Quality of the food was excellent. Wait staff were excellent
Service and Staff
The wait staff went above and beyond. Our waiter was very considerate of my son's picky eating. He really catered to him bringing him extra side dishes and recommending fruits and veggies to him!
Activities were abundant. There were actually too many activities and we were not able to see everthing we wanted to see.
Children's Programs
The kids loved the activities. We saw them in the morning and then not until dinner. Then, after dinner they were gone again. I felt the activities were safe. The only problem was when my daughter's kids club was on a scavenger hunt and they got in trouble from security for running. I feel like the security guard should have taken the issue up with the activities counselor instead of the parents since it was a ship sponsored activity.
