Review Summary

We had a wonderful time on our cruise celebrating our anniversary on the Carnival Paradise. The room was actually larger than I expected and there was plenty of closet and storage space for our belongings and luggage. Our room was kept clean day and night by the staff (special thanks to Allista!!). The food was always good with a variety of choices. The buffet lines were never terribly long and was worth the wait. We had a wonderful wait staff for dinner in the dining room with many delicious choices each day. There was always a list of entertainment - day and night. The comedians, shows, game shows, etc proved to be very entertaining. I also enjoyed the serenity deck for those over the age of 21 - but there were not enough lounge chairs and often had to wait on someone to leave to have a space. Overall this was an excellent first cruise - hope to have many more - even with the kiddos next time. We did check out the "kids club" on board which appeared to be well run and had a good staff. Anyone we talked to on board with children all had good reviews of the "kids club".
