Carnival Paradise made its debut on the high seas nearly 15 years ago. This cruise ship continues to live up to that name every time it takes adventurous guests on a journey out to splendorous sea.

The 70,367-ton ship carries 2,048 passengers aboard its decks. Like its sister ships, it is designed to be a Vegas-style party in the open ocean. It features an array of neon, chrome, and dazzling bright colors.

Great Amenities on Carnival Paradise

A snazzy casino joins over 10 bars and lounges to keep the adults occupied while at sea. Each pays homage to classic ocean liners through their decor, encompassing a luxury cruise feel with a nod to the past. Diners have the choice between two one-story dining rooms, an indoor-outdoor buffet restaurant, a sushi bar, 24-hour pizza place, and a café serving lavish coffee selections.

Aboard the decks of the lavish Paradise, you will find hot tubs, pools, a fully-functional gym, and a spa with a full line of treatments. Adults can relax on the Serenity deck. An area reserved for adults only with padded chaise lounges and sun umbrellas. The younger cruisers are not left behind, though. They have their own playroom, a 9-hole miniature golf course, and a spiral waterslide. Teens and tweens have their own space complete with a dance floor and soft-drinks bar. Paradise ensures there is something for every age group. Making it more than just another family cruise.

Cruise prices for the Paradise range from $234 a person to up to $919 a person. It all depends on the length of cruise selected, which ranges from 2 to 10 or more days. Large cabins measure over 185 square feet and include amenities such as robes and elegant bedding and mattresses, adding to the luxury cruise ambiance. When you book a cruise aboard the Carnival Paradise, you can be certain you will get the best of both worlds: luxury and a family-friendly experience.
