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.

Many guests breakfast on the lido deck, and at lunch choose the international dish of the day. A continental breakfast in one’s stateroom comes with streamlined service.

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.
