4 Night Baja Mexico (Los Angeles Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 26, 2011
Ship: Carnival Paradise
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago
Good ship, but uncontrolled children and no sort of dress code, along with a hectic, crowded condition led to a trip that was not relaxing. We were ready to get off the ship so we could rest.

No complaints. Food was good.

Ship Quality

Except for the stateroom, the ship was very good in all areas, especially cleanliness.

Cabin / Stateroom

Very clean, but very uncomfortable. Box box housing two small life jackets made it impossible to walk around the bed...you had to crawl over to get to the other side. Only one chair....no place to relax.

This is a one-time visit. For those of us who have been there before, there was no need to get off the ship. Taking the tour of the inland areas of the island and a chance to see the buffalo is the only real attraction.
Don't Miss: The over-priced shops

If you've been to any Mexican resort city, you've been to Ensenada. Great for someone who's never been to Mexico...we didn't bother to get off the ship.
Don't Miss: Nothing

Pros: Overall, fine ship, good service

Cons: Very crowded conditions, uncontrolled children -- generally hectic atmosphere -- not relaxed.

Recommends Carnival Paradise? No.
