Carnival Paradise Cruises

Carnival Paradise entered service in 1998. At 70,390 GT she carries 2,052 passengers. Her 2018 refit has given her an ‘as-new’ look, sporting mini golf course on the sports deck, refurbished staterooms, new children’s facilities, remodeled restaurants, water parks with whirlpools and three pools, and an adults-only deck. Other features include internet access, library, and spa and fitness facilities.

Carnival Paradise offers excellent Las Vegas-style entertainment, a selection of theme bars and lounges, and some of the largest standard cabins in the cruise industry. Past guests give top marks for the ship’s entertainment and its value-for-money. Despite the large number of passengers, there is no sense of being crowded onboard. This well-maintained vessel is ideal for families, veteran travellers, multigenerational groups, honeymooners and singles.

Highlights

  • Welcome to Carnival Paradise. It is 855 feet of beauty and joy. The ship will sun you, wine you, dine you, relax you over and over again. If you were in search of a paradise, you can officially announce, “Mission accomplished.”

  • Let us be honest. Nothing makes you feel better than a hearty laugh. And at Carnival Paradise’s Punchliner Comedy Club, laughing is something which everyone does. Flex your funny bones. It will be a laughter riot.

  • Ahhh, R & R. (It means Rest & Rejuvenation, not Rock & Roll.) The trademark of good vacation is that it has a healthy amount of downtime. That is the reason why Carnival Paradise has Serenity Adult-Only Retreat. Paradise, no doubt.

  • If you visualize paradise as enjoying live music with a cocktail, accompanied by your family and friends, then you are on the right ship. Come to Carnival Paradise’s Piano Bar. The ship will enthrall you night after night.
