This is not the biggest or the smallest ship, it is a medium size ship. Was afraid of possible sea sickness, had none, smooth sailing, great time. Will definitely cruise again.

Go to the children's pool area if you want a more quiet experience for sun bathing. Plus there are more seats available. Enjoy the ice cream machines and availability of food.

Great desserts at the coffee shop (not included). Desserts at the buffet and dining room weren't too exciting.

It is an older ship. One of there smaller ones. But have excellent service. I prefer bigger and newest. It depends what a person prefer.

Sunsets were beautiful from the dining room. Definitely hit the dining room brunch - NO LINES! and great service

The pool is really small on this ship, but they have lots of hot tubs. There is an adults only hot tub area in the back of the ship on the 9th floor. Spent lots of evenings there.

If you have little ones...don't miss the Dr. Seuss parade and breakfast. The towel theater was also great!

Sea Day Brunch ! Social wifi package was pretty good value at $15 for the trip. Cheers package was excellent for getting specialty coffees, even in the dining room. Take note you can't use gift cards for purchasing Cheers online. My PVP told me I could and I couldn't.

The best meal you can find is the breakfast brunch in the dining room. Eat up because the rest of the food that day won't compare.

Eat dinner nightly in the dinning room as a family experience

Unless you need one make sure your room is not handy cap accessible and not near the atrium

Take advantage of the self-pour beer stations! Best drink value on the ship and it only cost 39 cents per oz.

Please do not listen to bad reviews of the Paradise. If you do not have a great time it is truly your fault because there is so much to do and so many great people there to assist you in doing so!!!!

Try to avoid days at sea unless you enjoy just sitting in a lounge chair

Carnival Paradise is a nice ship but a small one. If you're looking for a short cruise to Cozumel, this is a good choice.
