Perfect way to celebrate

Jul 23rd, 2019

This was a great way to celebrate a birthday with family. The ship is very family friendly.

Small but great ship and crew

Jul 20th, 2019

Small ship with a compact design but it all comes together very well and is extremely easy to navigate. Beautiful atrium which allows people to view the activities in the lobby from all the decks above. Too much smoke in the casino; even just walking past my clothes smelled like smoke. Awesome crew - some of the friendliest we've encountered.

Some Great Some NOT SO Great

Jul 18th, 2019

Overall a good experience. But those negatives really stand out and were a bummer. I may try a different ship or cruise line next time before I get book the Paradise again.

Worst Cruise that I have been on

Jul 16th, 2019

It just felt like this cruise was thrown together at the last minute. I have been on about 7 cruises all of them with Carnival and this is by far the worse ever.

Great cruise again!

Jul 14th, 2019

Traveled as a family of 5. We had a great time. It's so nice to unplug and just relax and have fun. Food was good, entertainment was good, service was good.

Exceeded our expectations!

Jul 14th, 2019

This was our first Carnival cruise and we were impressed with the service and food. It was a great value for the money. It is obvious Carnival cares that you had a good time and they'd like to keep your business! We did have reservations about going on Carnival but wouldn't hesitate to do it again!

Relaxing

Jul 12th, 2019

It was a pleasant trip, relaxing, and short. I wish there was more games for teens, we play some board games but there is no many options. The staff is amazing thinking on how much they work and for how long they are away from home, but their diversity is what make the experience even more interesting.
