Carnival Paradise August 26, 2011
My sister, 41 and Milestone, and I, 57 and Platinum, were joined by two of our nephews who are in their twenties. My sister and I shared a cabin that had two portholes, R8, and the boys had a standard inside on the Upper deck. Our cabin was considerably larger than theirs.
Embarkation was a breeze in Long Beach. Being Platinum, we had VIP service and were just about the only people in the VIP room. My nephews went through normal processing and it was also quick. Embarkation staff were very nice.
Very noisy at docking and leaving the dock because of the thrusters right under our cabin. Quiet in hallway, bathroom worked perfectly
