Ship Facts: Carnival Paradise Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Paradise Deck Plans
A lovely cruise on Paradise
This was our (my wife and myself) second cruise on Paradise - the 1st being several years ago when the ship was non-smoking. Overall, this cruise shows that Carnival is putting some needed emphasis on service and food quality (as compared to our last cruise on Carnival about 2 years ago). The friendliness of all staff, from cabin stewards to waiters to all other staff, is apparent. We used the Your Time dining where we had some wonderful waiters, including Rey, Joel, and Darwin. The quality of the dining room food was good, items were well seasoned, and a wide variety was available. Some items could have been hotter, but this is an issue with almost all ships. We splurged on the Chef's Table - it was one of the best meals we have ever had on a ship. The seven courses were inventive and beautifully presented. If you are a foodie - this is money much better spent than on a short excursion!

We have been to Cozumel and Grand Cayman several times, so we only took one excursion - to the Cayman Motor Museum outside of Georgetown. Not the biggest museum, but some beautiful cars, including Ferraris and Rolls Royces (including the actual "Yellow Rolls Royce" from the movie of the same name).

The entertainment was good - and Eric, the cruise director is full of energy and enthusiasm. while not a 10 yet, we would rate our cruise experience as a solid 4. We are pleased with the improvements we have seen in Carnival, and will cruise with them again.
