Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Will never go on the Paradise again and will advise all others to stay away.  The ship is not well organized and with the exception of the dining room all other food choices are cafeteria only.  

Cabin / Stateroom
Clean, well organized and very comfortable for two people in separate beds.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Organized and swift.
Ship Quality
Running track? Small circular and at the top of the ship? I have never been on cruise with such limited exercise areas, all other ships had a walking track at a mid level floor that could be walked all the way around the ship and excellent work out room with treadmills, etc.
Destinations and Excursions
VIP dolphin excursion was fabulous! The highlight of the cruise!
Onboard Activities
Thea was great! All others were fair to poor. Repetitive.
Children's Programs NA
see onboard activities.
Service and Staff
Top notch staff.
Food and Dining
Lido was the only choice for food. The entire lacked a variety of fresh fruit. There were no beautiful displays of food in the buffet. Very cafeteria like.


You can't exactly change the ship to meet my needs so I would focus on better entertainment and food options.
