Sailing from Tampa, FL, the 70,000+-ton Carnival Paradise is a fantastic option for those looking for an affordable 3- to 5-night cruise. From this ship's 6-story Atrium Bar and duty-free shopping boutiques to the recently redesigned Spa Carnival and three swimming pools, there's something for everyone on board this ship!

Carnival Paradise was the first ship in the Carnival fleet to feature port of calls in Havana, Cuba starting with 4- and 5-night voyages departing in June 2017. Itineraries include daytime and overnight visits in Havana, as well as stops in either Cozumel or Key West.

In March 2018 Carnival Paradise underwent an extensive, multi-million-dollar refurbishment. Enhancements included the addition of a spectacular water park, Carnival's acclaimed Camp Ocean kid's program, several new dining venues and new staterooms!

There are many dining options available on a Carnival Paradise cruise. Among them are the main dining rooms (where you can choose between Assigned and Your Time, open, dining), Paris Lido Restaurant (which has a large buffet and pizzeria, among other options), plus 24-hour room service. Following Carnival Paradise's refurbishment, guests can now also sample delicious BBQ and more at Guy's Burger Joint or freshly authentic Mexican dishes at BlueIguana Cantina. Then kick back by the pool with an ice cold drink from RedFrog Rum Bar or BlueIguana Tequila Bar.

As far as entertainment venues and things to do go, there's something for everyone on board Carnival Paradise. For instance, the two-level Normandie Show Lounge features a live show during each evening of the cruise. Performances may include dancing, singing, comedians, magicians, acrobats and game shows. Also on board this ship is the Majestic Casino (with games such as blackjack, poker, roulette, craps, poker and slot machines), a full-service spa (with a beauty salon and fitness center), an internet cafe, photo gallery, art gallery, library and much more. Those with children and teens should be happy to hear that there's a great age-based youth program available on board.

There are many bars and lounges aboard Carnival Paradise. Among them are Queen Mary Lounge, which features performances such as singers and comedians, Rex Dance Club (a great place to enjoy a drink and "bust a move," America Bar and Leonardo Lounge.
