We had a great time on the Paradise on Carnival Cruise Lines. The staff was amazing. The food was excellent. The ship was nice. Loved the adults only comedy shows and the adults only hot tubs on the aft deck. Breakfast was a daily highlight. Great steward. Only downside was a few drunk college kids but that was expected.

Pros: The food and the comedy shows

Cons: 3 young party idiot 20 somethings at our dining table for dinner that annoyed us like hell

Recommends Carnival Paradise? Yes!

Food and Dining
Great food. Great variety. Great waiters. LOVED breakfast.
Cabin / Stateroom
Nice room. Excellent staff. We liked how quick they were and gave us whatever we wanted. Loved Ketut....great steward.
Service and Staff
Loved the comedy shows. Both Russ Nagel and Merl Hobbs were hilarious.
Ship Quality
Beautiful ship but the wierd green faberge egg decorations were a little odd.
Catalina Island, California
Great island. Kick back atmosphere was cool. Thread shop was great. Nice walk on the beach. The Casino Royale Frappaccinos were amazing at CC Gallaghers. Glass bottom boat tour was nice.
Don't Miss: Beach and shopping
Ensenada, Mexico
Dirty place. Shopping was ok but Ensenda was kind of a craphole. One highlight was El Puerto restraunt/bar. They had the best fish tacos ever. Antonio was great. Way too many vendors in your face but lunch was good. They had really good Pina Coladas too.
Don't Miss: El Puerto and their fish tacos and pina coladas
