Girlfriend and I booked this as our first ever cruise. We normally stay at a resort when we travel to the Carinbean but decided to try a cruise at the urging of friends. We loved it. Although the Paradise is an older ship, the awesome staff and great entertainment more than makes up for it. Room service and ship staff were perfect (and I want to stress perfect), extremely helpful and made it easy to kick back and relax. There was so much to do in the way of entertainment but our favorite part of the cruise was the comedy club. The club manager Ashely does a great job and Mike Macy was amazing and absolutely hilarious!! It was grew to have an adult comedy show to go to each night. His show alone is reason enough to book a carnival cruise, we went to every one of his shows. Highly recommend. If an older ship like Paradise has this much to offer, can only imagine what a younger ship is like! Will definitely book Carnival again!
Bigger than we thought, windows are a good size, offering a good view from cabin. Not much noise outside of the cabin although you may occasionally hear kids running through the halls.
