Just off the Paradise and thought I would give my 2 cents. Traveled with Husband, daughter and her husband and 3 kids (2,4,6 yrs). Quick on & off the ship. We also valet parked which was not expensive and great with the kids.
Liked the decor much better than the Miracle.. That ship gave me a headache everywhere I went.
We have been on several carnival cruises and did not expect much.. Over 20 cruises on other lines. Easy to park in Tampa..only 1 hr from home.
I loved our cabin. Good value..plenty of room, even for 4.. great size bathroom and shower. good size closet and hang area. a little noisy as we were 4a- lowest deck to the rear of ship[, but did not bother us at all.
