Family Fun

Sail Date: June 06, 2011

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

The cruise was fun for my whole group which included 2 seniors, 2 teenagers and 2 people in their 40's. We learned to use the Fun Times as a biggest source of information. The paper and the information from the TV really helped us plan our day and have fun. We liked both the comedy show and the dancing and sining shows. Both were well done and family friendly. We didn't spend much time at the pool because of the big crowds and lack of pool space. We did spend our time shopping and felt the stores had fair prices on their merchandise. The walking track was a great way to start the day.

Pros: The staff was friendly and the parts of the ship we visited most were very clean. The food was good and they had a lot of variety.

Cons: The pool is small and very crowded during the day when it is warm enough to swim.

Recommends Carnival Paradise? Yes!

Food and Dining
They had a nice variety of food for all meals.
Ship Quality
It was very well maintained. They had lots of maps posted to help us find our way around.
Cabin / Stateroom
They rooms were nice and comfortable for our family of four.
Service and Staff
The staff was nice and helpful.
The family friendly comedy show was funny both nights and so were the 2 dancing shows.
Catalina Island, California
We did they See land and sea tour and the Glass bottom boat. They were both informative and we enjoyed them. The man leading the Glass bottom boat tour did the minimum and wasn't the best tour guide.
Ensenada, Mexico
We did the Scenic Gold Coast tour and the Blow Hole. They were both 3 hours each and were informative. We did not enjoy the pressure selling at the flea market at the Blow hole, it just isn't our style.
