Carnival Paradise was truly an amazing cruise. This was my second cruise with Carnival and I was so impressed. The staff works super hard to make sure your room stays clean, the ship was super clean, bathrooms, deck, eating areas. Our room steward Ninga was awesome, we never ran out of towels, toilet paper or anything else. The Food at our late formal dining time was amazing. We had Dennis and Rey and they were awesome!!!!! There were so many activities, and the island stops were so nice. I highly suggest going on at least one excursion. We did the seatrek helmet dive in Grand Cayman and it was unbelievable. Ben and his crew showed us a wonderful time. All in all, if you are looking for a great time, and need an affordable vacation cruise, Carnival Paradise is the way to go!!!!!! We just got back and are planning our next cruise with Carnival

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We had the late formal dining time of 8:15pm everyday. Our food choices were amazing. Also, the breakfast buffets, and lunch buffets had very tasty options that we always hot and ready!


5 out of 5
Lots of activities, tons to do on the ship, and there were always schedules of activities left on your bed for the next day so you could plan what you wanted to do.

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
We didn't take our kids, but they had lots of activities specially planned for kids and they seemed to be enjoying themselves anytime we saw them.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff was gracious and always helpful and willing to answer any and every question we had. They all took pride in their jobs and had impeccable customer service. They remembered our names and what we liked to drink. The staff really made each and every cruiser feel like an individual and not just another number on the ship!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Super Clean ship! Bedrooms, eating areas, bathrooms were super clean. Staff was constantly cleaning the whole time we were there!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Ninga was our room steward in cabin U9 and he kept our room immaculate! Even when we left our clothes on the ground he cleaned around everything! He cleaned our room twice a day. We left all of our possessions out and nothing was ever missing. He was a great room steward and it was great to not have to worry about leaving our stuff out.

Pros: Excellent, Excellent Service, Super Clean Ship, Excellent Food, Lots of Activities, Great Drinks, Great Night Life Activities
