This is my third Carnival crusie. This ship Paradise had the best food by far- qaiulaity taste even at the buffet versus the mass-produced taste typical of cruises.
The waiter show at dinner was about non-existant. This had been a highlight on other Carnival cruises. Not enough activities-especially physical ones. Most things costs money - lots of Bingo and gambling. Only kareoke one day on 4 day cruise-this is a cruise staple.

Ensenada is very safe and a relatively small town. Go to the fish market and get fish tacos at any of the restaurants there. People drive from SD for them.
Don't Miss: Hussongs- a 125 year old cantina. A taste of real mexico- ole! Taco place next to it is good.

Pros: Food quality was excellent

Cons: Not enough things to do that did not cost money (i.e. Bingo)

Recommends Carnival Paradise? Yes!
