We are a couple in our mid 60's and we had a wonderful time on the Fun Ship Paradise

Our Cabin Steward Ketut was awesome during our B2B cruises. We had him for both cabins & his friendly greeting calling us by name was a pleasant surprise. We chose late cabin service, but the ice for the day was always there when we got back from breakfast.

The cabin U198 was smaller than anticipated for a balcony, no night tables or chairs and the 2 overhead bunks still worked out OK for the 2 of us. The Aft balcony U226 was great.

Port Reviews


If you don't want to go far, the Port Area is a great place to shop, eat & drink. There are even a few loungers in the the sand there!.

We went into San Miguel via taxi for $10. Walked the town square and Malecon for a while.

Then a taxi to Money Bar for the best Nachos EVER & some snorkeling.


We booked an outside company Cubaoutings, for a 9am to 3pm walking & old car driving tour of Havana. Then after returing to the ship for dinner & a nap went back out to walk the area & stop at places for drinks & music. Felt totally safe & had the most enjoyable time in this port. Cultural, Historic & Entertaining. Just as a FYI, Monday the Museums are closed. The first Monday of the month the Flea Market is closed.
