We were a little disappointed by this cruise. We sailed the Carnival Paradise leaving Long Beach for a 3 night cruise. It was March, during our Spring Break, so we were expecting other families to be on the cruise as well. This cruise is predominantly a singles "let's party" cruise. There is a Children's World with a pool but adults with no children were permitted in the area. We wished that Children's World could be a non-alchohlic, non- smoking area. That was not the case. We did not feel comfortable with our children in most of the areas on this ship. It was not a family friendly cruise.

I have to say that the entertainment was not good.

Children's Programs

My younger children enjoyed the kids only activities and my teenagers enjoyed Club Circle and Club O2

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Most of the ship staff members were great. But some, with the philosophy that the customer is always right, permitted some guests to be extremely rude (cutting in line and using profanity in front of children)

It was a little scary!

Pros: Excellent food!

Cons: Not enough "family friendly" activities. This cruise is predominantly a singles "let's party" cruise.
