Panama Canal Cruise -- Carnival Paradise -- November 28-December 12, 2011 Overall, this was a wonderful 14-day cruise on the Paradise with a somewhat unique itinerary (for Carnival) of passing through the Panama Canal from the Pacific to the Atlantic. This was my 10th cruise, and the 6th time on a Carnival ship. THE SHIP: The Paradise was a medium-sized ship (Fantasy Class), but ...

The trip was 10 days we couldn't Port in Costa Rica due to 70 knot winds and 15 to 18 foot ...
