Great Trip

Sail Date: April 02, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Inside

I think this was a good first cruise for the kids. The rooms were clean and the staff was great.

Pros: Organization of the trip

Cons: Dining Room food not as good as expected

Recommends Carnival Paradise? Yes!

Ship Quality
Size was good for young kids, bigger for older kids would have been better, it was clean, decorated nicely and easy to get around1
Food and Dining
Evening dining wasn't as good as expected. Like the several choices. Buffet was always good and so was breakfast.
Could have had more activities around the pool area for all to enjoy. Music would have been better if there was a variety.
Children's Programs
Good idea for kids to meet others. Didn't like the breakdown of younger ages. My 11 year old has 3 older brothers and thought the things for her age group were a little too young.
Cabin / Stateroom
Stateroom very clean and staff was good
Service and Staff
Most everyone was friendly. Loved our waiter at the evening dining!
