Ship Facts: Carnival Paradise Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Paradise Deck Plans
Carnival Paradise Ensenada 4 Day Cruise
We found this cruise to be excellent!

What it is:

-Fun! If you were bored... it was your fault! There was plenty to do!

-EXCELLENT service from the Carnival Paradise staff (from the embarkation staff to the ship)

-GOOD food (this isn't a five star restaurant, but the food is good)

-CLEAN rooms and ship. People were always cleaning around the ship!

-Catalina is excellent! Beautiful city, good excursions.

-Ensenda blow hole tour is an absolute must. We booked with the ship on this one and are glad we did. The city looks difficult to navigate and work with.

-Affordable! Where else can you get room/board/entertainment/food for this price??

What it isn't:

-A "fancy" cruise designed for anyone used to 5 star service. You will be disappointed.

-A quiet environment. Yes, you can relax and find a quiet place to read, sleep, but many children are on this cruise. Be prepared for kids!
