Calling Tampa home, the Paradise is great for short cruises

What we love about the Carnival Paradise is that she truly offers something for every age group. Children and teens love Camp Carnival, Circle C and Club O2. Adults love the ship’s spa, health and beauty club and the varied entertainment options, including karaoke, casinos, dance clubs, Las Vegas–style shows and The Chef’s Table gourmet dinner.

Carnival Paradise OVERVIEW

Carnival Paradise, the last Fantasy-class ship, isn’t the biggest vessel in Carnival Cruise Lines’ fleet, and its size makes it easier to get to know other couples and families when you’re spending time by the pool or mingling at dinner.

The interior staterooms are a good size, but the Penthouse Suites and Ocean Suites are really spacious. The Grand Suites feature a full bathroom with a whirlpool tub, a king-size bed or two twin beds, a sofa bed, an armchair and a coffee table. There’s more room to move outdoors too: This suite’s large private balcony is one of the most coveted spots on the ship.

Carnival Cruise Lines does what it does best with the Paradise. The Rex Dance Club and the nighttime comedy show, in particular, are a big draw for 20-something couples and groups.

Entertainment includes Vegas-style production shows, karaoke, the Rex Dance Club and a casino. Other amenities are a 12,000-square-foot spa, health club and beauty salon; the City Sports Park with a nine-hole mini golf course, Ping-Pong and a jogging track; and the 114-foot-long Twister waterslide.
