Ship: Carnival Paradise
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: E190
Traveled As: Family (older children)

Our family had a blast on the Carnival Paradise. the only suggestion I have is to have more activities during the day on the days at sea. Most of the shows are after dinner. Meaning unless you like swimming in the pool or laying out in the sun, it tends to get a little boring by the second day at sea. They do have Bingo and little shows like the hairy chest contest and ice carving but those shows combined may take 2 hours of the day. Then you are left with eating and  drinking...


With that said...the employees are VERY polite and helpful! The port of call was a blast, the excursions are amazing! I'm not by any means complaining or putting the cruiseline down. I love cruises just wish there were shows during the day...


Thanks!Big Smile

wish we had different bed set up but that was my fault when booking. It was weird to have a bed over our heads!
