The Ship, the Staff and the Itinerary, were Aces....
The entertainment and schedule were good choices

Pros: Most everything on the cruise,met or exceeded our expectations

Cons: The Dj for the Rex was two thumbs downs...Yuchh....

Recommends Carnival Paradise? Yes!

Ship Quality
even though the ship had 3000+ people it was well spread out
Food and Dining
A+ food selection and quality, the Beef Brisket & Lobster night was the Bomb... Can I say bomb, Ohh Yes after all this is, not a plane right?
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
The Entire staff was friendly and very cheerful, the staff we spent the most time with was the dining staff and they made every night a delight. Thank you..!!!
the Dj in the Rex gets two thumbs down, Giant disappointment...
Catalina Island, California
the weather was great, Snorkeling in Lovers cove, made the trip.... and the water was a cool 69 degrees
Ensenada, Mexico
Everything was great, my only complaint was the courtesy shuttle service had two different companies, one stopped on the lower end of town allowing you to visit the shops, the second shuttle first off charged you for a two way trip and gave you bus transfers then took you to the furthest point from the ship and dropped you off at some captured destination so you can be pre-solicited. Also Mango Mango prices were way out of liine, they were charging what carnival was sinking you for.
Don't Miss: you don't want to miss the return shuttle before the boat leaves...LOL
