Sail Date: May 28, 2012
Ship: Carnival Paradise
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (young children)

Great Ship, we didn't discover the kiddie pool til the last day, that shows how large the ship is. Had a great time playing mini-golf, ping pong, swimming, the slide was great for the kids, we enjoyed the extra activities and casino. I didn't feel the coupon book for shopping on shore was worth it - save your money! Also I wasn't aware that I would be charge gratuity per person especially since we only used the dining room one night. This was almost $60 per person. Adds up for a family of 4.

Just felt they could offer more activities. Lot of shopping activities, triva, contest and shows. Always a giveaway.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
GREAT kids program, I would highly recommend this program. At the end of the cruise they had a talent show for the kids. Every day the kids were coming back with nice stuff - t-shirts, pirates mask, facepainting. A+++ program.

we had a inside cabin, when the bunkbeds were brought down it got a little crowded but overall enough room for 2 adults and 2 kids

Pros: Camp Carnival, the kids had a great time

Cons: Formal Dining Room - dress code

Recommends Carnival Paradise? Yes!
