Additional details

Sail Date: Aug 2004

This was our second cruise through Carnival. We had a wonderful time on the smoke-free Paradise! The ship was beautiful, clean, service was excellent, smiles everywhere and the food... food, and more food... they force fed you lobster! no lie! You can have your pictures developed on the ship for about $7 and they give you a free album. Drinks were reasonably priced, especially the morning specials. You can have professional portraits done, they can be pricey as you have to buy the 8x10 at $20 before you choose the smaller sizes.... all in all, can't wait to book another cruise.

Belize: (tender port) tours were a little overpriced onboard. Cave tubing seemed to be the most popular.. about $85 per person. 

Isla Roatan: This was paradise. We took the Taybana Beach Break tour, $35 per person. We had the beach all to our selves and ladies can get their entire hair braided for $25. Beer are $2 and very good.
