My husband and I had a great time on the Carnival Paradise. Overall,the staff is very nice and helpful. The only complaint I would have is that there are not enough trash cans on board. You cant find them anywhere and this causes people to just leave their used bar glasses and trash everywhere,not that this is a good excuse to be a slob! We saw trash in the elevators,on ledges,on the lobby floors,just everywhere! There must be a reason for the lack of receptacles,perhaps fire prevention? Anyway,overall we had a great time! Just be sure to read the fine print before booking because we were a little surprised on some of the charges we received and it blew our budget on our sail and sign account .Zoiks!

very cheesy,low budget theater show. D.J. Tropic played some great music on the Lido deck however!

Mostly ,the staff was nice,but I think there definitely could have been a few more smiling and personable attendants.

Ship Quality

Say ok only because its an 18 yr old ship,but that considered,its kept up very well.

Super comfy bed and Wendel, our steward, was very nice and attentive!

Ship Tip

Take the stairs when you are able. The elevators can be very sloooow. You can eat as many meals as you want at dinner,apparently. A woman next to us had 2 apps, 4 entrees and dessert one night!

We were very impressed how quick and easy it was to get on the ship! Onboard and in our room within 15 mins. of being dropped off by shuttle!
