Port of Tampa was very easy port to get into and park. We had Priority Boarding went great on the ship and eating lunch in 10 min.
Carnival Paradise is a smaller ship but has all the upgrades and easy to get around lines were very short every time. The food was the best that we have had on our last few cruises, it was good very good.
The staff was very efficient and the ship was always clean and well maintained. Had an elevator go out but was fixed in one day.
This was a Junior Suite that is about the same as a Balcony on larger ships. The room was good Priority Boarding and Priority debarkation because of this being a Suite room was great. Plenty of closet and drawer space. Luggage fit under the bed. Balcony was nice to have. The room was quite no problems sleeping. Location was high on the ship and the only problem was that there was only two elevators serving this deck so sometimes you had to wait, this was not a problem for us because on vacation we are not in a hurry ever. Overall great room great location.
