Carnival Paradise - Onboard Activities
Though Carnival Paradise is one of the smaller ships in the Carnival fleet, she definitely has no shortage of fun, exciting, relaxing and rejuvenating things to do while aboard!
Whether you prefer to participate in one of many on-deck games and sporting activities, attend an enlightening enrichment seminar, enjoy a good book in the colorful Blue Riband Library, or simply relax while soaking up some rays next to one of three pools-one complete with a 115-foot waterslide-the Carnival Paradise truly offers something for every member of the family to enjoy while onboard!
The Spa Carnival aboard Carnival Cruises Paradise offers the best in both fitness equipment and luxurious spa treatments. Free-weights, treadmills, universal machines in one area; a sauna, steam room, whirlpool, massages and manicures await you!
There are also many options for the younger cruisers onboard Carnival Paradise cruises. Camp Carnival programs for youth give the kids age-specific activities to make their Carnival cruise Paradise review as great as can be. From scientific, historical, and cultural activities, to fun games and entertainment, the kids onboard Carnival Paradise cruises will have just as great a vacation as the adults!
Carnival Paradise - Entertainment
No matter what night it is, every night aboard the Carnival Cruise ship Paradise brings down the house at the Normandie Lounge! The entertainment couldn't get any better if you were in Las Vegas itself! The Leonardo gets the music pumping for you, but only you can get on the dance floor! And the Leonardo isn't the only place you can cut a rug; Rex Dance Club features a sophisticated African jungle motif.
If you want a more relaxed atmosphere, stop in at two great watering holes, Rotterdam Bar and Queen Mary Lounge. For a festive time, America Bar is all about the Red, White, and Blue; it features several copper-leaf sculptural panels in bas relief depicting scenes of the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls and Yellowstone National Park.
Other live entertainment options include frequent appearances by comedians, live bands, magicians and more! And although very few things in life are a sure bet, I don't doubt you'll come out of the Casino with a winning smile on your face!
Carnival Paradise - Accommodations
Carnival Paradise cruises offer staterooms that are 50% larger than those found on other cruise lines, and all have carpeted floors, spacious drawers and closets, private bathrooms, a telephone, and a color television.
Carnival Paradise Stateroom Options Include:
Luxurious Carnival Cruise Paradise suites feature a separate sitting area, a large private balcony, and a whirlpool bath. Special features include a large vanity/dressing table, refrigerator and entertainment area, VCR, and walk-in closet.

(Now if you've never cruised before, or never stayed in a room with a balcony, you really don't know what you're missing!)
A Balcony Stateroom aboard the Paradise has plush carpeting, lots of drawer and closet space, private facilities (shower, basin and toilet), telephone, and color television showing first-run films.

Carnival Paradise - Dining
Passengers aboard the Carnival Paradise will find that for every day they travel on their Baja Mexico cruise vacation, they'll be able to have a totally different and amazing dining experience! From the main dining rooms to the tremendous Lido Deck buffet, as well as numerous cafés, a 24-hour pizzeria, and even round-the-clock room service, your options for spectacular cuisine aboard the Paradise are virtually endless!
The Paris Restaurant is a casual Lido-area restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Another casual, but exotic, place is the Sushi Bar, which is located on the Promenade Deck, right outside of the Casino. Or walk a little ways towards the aft of the ship, along Carnival Boulevard; you'll see the Cafe Ile de France, which is reminiscent of a casual European sidewalk eatery.
The Destiny Dining Room on Carnival cruise ship Paradise, on the other hand, has an elegant ambiance. And, of course, the menu is full of entr233;es plentiful in proportions as they are in flavor. Surf and Turf, broiled lobster, veal, pastas, steaks-all cooked and served to your specifications. There are specific dining times for the restaurant, but Carnival cruise Paradise will provide you with everything it can to accommodate you!
