Vegas on a ship

Sail Date: August 01, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Room Type: Inside

If you like Vegas, you will probably like this cruise, but don't expect to really see Mexico in Ensenada. Also there are many extra charges for drinks/internet/really fun activities, etc.

Pros: The food was very good.

Cons: It was annoying to be asked if we wanted to take a picture or buy a drink every 10 minutes.

Recommends Carnival Paradise? Yes!

Service and Staff
Our steward an waiter were excellent. We did have an issue with the spa not telling us there was a 50% cancellation fee for a massage.

Cabin / Stateroom
Food and Dining
Ensenada, Mexico
Convenient but very touristy. We didn't have to change money or speak any Spanish. I think you have to go away from the downtown area to get a more "authentic" view of Mexico.
Don't Miss: Be sure to eat tacos at a taco stand.
Catalina Island, California
The beaches are very crowded but scenic. Don't bother renting a peddle boat unless you like looking at boats up close in the harbor.
Don't Miss: snorkeling was good
