This is the secoond consecutive New Year's Eve cruise we have taken on the Carnival Paradise. And honestly, we liked it better the second time around.
First, we had snow in the atrium on Jan. 1st, thanks to our cruise director Steve. Steve also entertained us with his classical violin show.
We met some interesting people and the weather was perfect. Except for coming into port on on last day. We were delayed six hours due to fog. Never had that happen before. We were able to relax in our state room and of course food was available all day.
All in all, it was a great vacation and we are already planning for next year to ring in the new year on a cruise.

valet parking at the port is great!! well worth the $20.00


The serenity deck is great for adults. However, on the last day, more younger and louder people were allowed. Need to keep that under control.
