This was our New Years cruise on the Paradise, our 4th cruise, 3rd on Carnival. For comparison purposes, we have sailed on the Destiny, and Conquest prior. I apologize in advance for sometimes jumping around and being wordy, but, as this cruise is over, This review helps us to relive some of our great times and share some of our ideas with others. As this is an older ship, the dEcor and layout has ...

My cruise on the Paradise was my second, and it was not any worse that the last cruise on the Carnival Glory! Size really doesn't matter in cruise ships, I guess. We cruised on August 28, 2004, to the Eastern Caribbean. Anyway, I am from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and I am obsessed with cruising, even though I've only been on 2. My family and I and my cousins and Aunt and Uncle came, too. Cruises ...

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 ...

BACKGROUND I'm 23 and my DH is also 23. I'm originally from Indiana, and he's originally from England. We took this cruise as a gift from my parents for completing my Masters degree. It was the first cruise for both of us. The date of departure was May 9, 2004 and we returned on May 16, 2004. I've tried to write everything I can remember. The way this review is structured is chronological; with ...

We cruised over spring break and the ship was full of families, which was fine with us. Dining: The staff is well trained and took great care of us. The meals were mostly average, both in the dining room and the Paris restaurant (buffet). That was the only disappointment about the cruise. When we cruised Alaska several years ago on the Jubilee, the food was excellent. We were seated with 2 other ...

This was the first time I had been on a cruise and heard several horror stories and several raving reviews. Since we lived only a few hours away we left home Sunday the 28th at 7:00am. Traffic was ok until we arrived closer to the port. Then, traffic turned into a thrill ride. Both cars arrived and we used the porters to help with the luggage. Parking was easy, and embarkation was swift as we used ...

Here is my review of our trip on the Jan 4th sailing of the Carnival Paradise. I traveled with a group of coworkers/friends that sailed on the S/S Norway together in January 2003. Pre-trip travel: We flew Southwest from Buffalo to Ft. Lauderdale. We had a quick stop in Baltimore, but did not need to change planes. The first half of the flight was full, and we could not sit together, even ...
