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!

Ship Quality
Say ok only because its an 18 yr old ship,but that considered,its kept up very well.
Food and Dining
The chocolate melting cake is to die for in the Elation Dining room!
Service and Staff
Mostly ,the staff was nice,but I think there definitely could have been a few more smiling and personable attendants.
very cheesy,low budget theater show. D.J. Tropic played some great music on the Lido deck however!
Children's Programs not applicable
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
Dolphinarus in Cozumel was awesome! Very clean streets in Cozumel as well.
Cabin / Stateroom
Super comfy bed and Wendel, our steward, was very nice and attentive!
Tampa, Florida
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!
Cozumel, Mexico
Very clean streets and gorgeous water. (dont go to the "flea market"upstairs at the port)


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!
