Carnival Paradise Ship Information

While they've never stopped adding the latest and greatest features to the ship, this ship remains classic Carnival fun-packed from bow to stern. With so much of it indoors, outdoors and everywhere in between, Carnival Paradise features great times in and near the water courtesy of hot tubs, pools and a Carnival WaterWorks waterpark featuring a giant spiraling slide and dual racing slides. For those who appreciate a good story, there's Seuss at Sea with an interactive storytime and parade!

On the food front, aboard this ship there's two of the top casual spots: Guy's Burger Joint, featuring the goods from Guy Fieri, and BlueIguana Cantina, with authentic south-of-the-border taco/burrito goodness. Refreshments and good times abound with RedFrog Rum Bar and BlueIguana Tequila Bar. And a little closer to home (well, your vacation home), Carnival Paradise now features even more staterooms with a balcony. Feel that breeze!

Spend a vacation aboard Carnival Paradise, and you'll find a little slice of cruise ship paradise at sea.

Carnival Paradise Ship Activities

Aboard Carnival Paradise there are no boundaries to your activities. This is the only place on earth where getting lost will become the best thing that has ever happened to you. Enjoy basking in the multiplicity, there's no need to be contained. No matter what type of mood you're in or your preference, Paradise is equipped to satisfy cruisers no matter what.

  • Build-A-Bear Workshop at Sea: When kids visit the Build-A-Bear Workshop At Sea, they use their little hands and big creativity to bring a new stuffed friend to life. They can customize their furry friend from head to toe by choosing the bear, clothing and accessories.
  • Dreams Studio: On the same ship with the waterslides and conga lines is actually a photographic oasis. Everybody looks their best, smiles their biggest smiles on vacation... and at Dreams Studio professional photographers beautifully capture this side of individuals, couples, groups or families.
  • WaterWorks: Head on over to WaterWorks, Carnival's onboard waterpark. First up, there's the Twister Waterslide, hundreds of feet of spiraling awesomeness that starts you off high in the air and gets you down low with one of the fastest, wettest rides you'll find anywhere.
  • Serenity Adult Only Retreat: Somebody at Carnival knows just what you need, and it's pretty much exactly the Serenity Adult-Only Retreat. Look, you'll still be on the same ship as the kids, the hoopla, and all the Carnival-style excitement but you could easily forget, because when you're at Serenity you could not be further from it all. The world you'll find yourself in is one of complete peace, sea breezes and, of course, a nearby bar.
  • Library: With wall-to-wall activities, most people wouldn't think of their cruise vacation as a great time to read a book, but you'll find the bibliophilic faithful stretched out on deck chairs, enjoying the sun, sea breeze... and a page-turner. Forgot to bring a book? E-reader battery just died? Every Carnival ship features an onboard library stocked with the good stuff.
  • Bingo: Get ready to play some crazy-exciting, hoot-and-holler-if-you-win-big bingo! The prizes are bigger, the packages are more fun and there are even souvenir daubers to mark your numbers.
  • Mini Golf: Ah, imagine a perfect day out on the links, the golfer's zen of the ball, the hole and nothing in between but well-manicured fairway.
  • Art Exhibitions: Even if you don't "know" much about art, of course you can still tell when you like something who needs a refined palette to know when a piece is good?
  • Games: Play is essential to childhood development - that's what cognitive scientists (fully-grown adults without bedtimes) believe!
  • Art Seminars: Go from 'normal vacationer' to 'world-traveling art whiz' in one cruise flat.
  • Video Arcade: Video arcade boasts a huge array of games, and is open to players of all ages, all night and all day.

Carnival Paradise Ship Dining

You've got a foodie in you everyone does! Awaken and delight yours on a Carnival cruise with delicious main dishes, tempting desserts and general yumminess everywhere you look.

Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast
Pack your imagination, but don't forget your appetite as the whole family embarks on a breakfast that's part meal, and part journey into the deliciously whimsical world of Dr. Seuss. Sit down to a truly fantastical feast at the Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast with The Cat in the Hat and Friends. Bright colors and patterns decorate your table, which features fun and unique menus.

Guy's Burger Joint
Carnival went looking for someone to help grill up the best burgers at sea, and they found just the guy. Carnival has teamed up with best-selling author, restaurateur and Food Network personality Guy Fieri to bring all the authentic appeal of a roadside burger shack to Guy's Burger Joint, the cool poolside spot for hot burgers and hand-cut fries. Try a fresh-off-the-grill burger Guy's way, or take it off-road to the toppings bar and truly make it your own.

Turn your special vacation in the direction of delicious - book a table for an unforgettably delectable evening at the onboard Steakhouse. This menu features mouthwatering premium cuts of beef cooked to your exact specifications, as well as a fantastic selection of seafood, entrees, gourmet appetizers, and even a wine list that got the nod from Wine Spectator. (They actually call it the Award of Excellence.) The Steakhouse's atmosphere pairs remarkably well with, and perhaps even enhances, the culinary creations of the gourmet chefs.

Dining Room
"Hey, which side does the fork go on?" is a question you'll never have to ask at a dining room dinner aboard a Carnival cruise. Carnival sets the table for you. They also bring to the table a full three courses in an experience that's filling, but never stuffy - after all, you're just as likely to catch waiters table-dancing as you are to order dessert. Dessert's included (along with the rest of your meal, by the way) in your fare. But don't skip straight to dessert, because the main course is the main attraction - drop in daily and enjoy a rotating menu of delectable favorites like steak, roasted duck, scallops and prime rib.

Lido Marketplace
Featuring an amazing variety of casual dining spots, each just a few flip-flopped steps from the last, Lido Marketplace always has a special something ready to satisfy your latest craving spectacularly. Here they do it with dozens of what-to-eat options... great choices like BBQ, a deli counter, salad bar, an Asian station and a pasta bar... plus one spot where the chef serves up a different surprise daily! At Lido Marketplace, there's tons of indoor and outdoor seating made for gathering around, so you can enjoy your personal faves in your favorite company for lunch or dinner, or even breakfast! Lido's also where you can find soft serve, frozen yogurt and fresh pizza... which so far seems to be enough to satisfy everybody.

Pizza Pirate
Tossing dough is an age-old art passed down the generations. Lucky for you, someone passed the secret to the perfect pie. While aboard, this is the place that will shiver your timbers and warm you to the bone, with a Margherita, Funghi, Prosciutto, Pepperoni or Quatttro Formaggi pizza served with a delicious Caesar salad. Savvy? Then it's the pirates' life for you!

The Chef's Table
Treat your taste buds to the experience of a lifetime, culminating in a sumptuous multicourse dinner hosted by the Master Executive Chef. Your VIP experience starts with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres for a select group of 14, followed by a mind-blowing full-service dinner of amazing appetizers, entrees and desserts not found in regular dining menus.

24 Hour Room Service
So you're in the mood for some good eats, but you'd rather stay in your comfy, cozy stateroom? Really, who could blame you? Simply pick up the phone and order something tasty from the extensive room service menus. And since you get hungry when you get hungry, room service is available any time of the day (or night), and it's always delivered right to your door.

The Carnival Deli
Looking for a little taste from the old neighborhood? Pile 'em high at the Carnival Deli. Enjoy old time favorites like a hot pastrami on rye, grilled Reuben, or roasted turkey breast on a country roll.

Got room for dessert? Sure you do! Swirls lets you enjoy the sweeter side of brain freeze with a treat that'll have you smiling from ear to ear. Choose from chocolate, vanilla or strawberry... or make your own mix swirled as high as you can balance it.

Carnival Paradise Ship Bars

What better way to enjoy a cruise than with a good cocktail in your hand? Picture yourself at the open-air bars or wear your favorite team's color for the match. There are different theme bars where you can relax and spend your time.

RedFrog Rum Bar
Guests have told Carnival that they hit on something special with the cool Caribbean chill of the RedFrog Pub. Carnival has taken the best parts and brought them poolside with the RedFrog Rum Bar, where the frog keeps the fun hopping day and night with all the island flava you know and love. Join the party at this poolside bar featuring a great selection of frog-approved Caribbean rum-based concoctions available by the glass or pitcher.

BlueIguana Tequila Bar
BlueIguana Tequila Bar is the onboard spot to chill and enjoy a slushy tequila drink or an ice-cold Mexican cerveza. The menu offers up Mexican favorites, including several brands of tequila and a slew of Mexican brews. There's a lineup of frozen concoctions, cocktails and margaritas served by the glass or by the pitcher, and even a special Mexican beer cocktail (yes, really). Where can you find this little slice of Mexican paradise? Next to the pool, of course. So stay cool and take in the bar's vacation vibe while you kick back on your cruise that's what official bar mascot Blue the Iguana would tell you.

Piano Bar
Play it again, Sam. Or Diana. Or whatever your name is. Because this is the bar where you call the shots, and the tunes. Hey songbird - pull up a seat, order your favorite cocktail and let your friendly piano player know what you'd like to hear. Then join the singalong for a hand-clapping, foot-tapping, finger-snapping good time. Don't feel like flexing your vocal cords? No worries - hummingbirds are welcome here, too. And since the bar's open from the evening until late at night, it's the perfect spot for an early drink or singing 'til the wee hours.

Casino Bar
Winning big in the casino is big fun, and your next stop is celebrating with a top-shelf drink. Located right off the casino floor, the casino bar serves up your favorite cocktails, beer and wine, making this the perfect spot to celebrate with family, friends, and maybe even total strangers.

Salud, kampai, l'chaim, mabuhay... however you toast, Carnival makes sure you get to do more of it with Cheers! Bartenders bring you your drinks, but never the bill. Once aboard, sign up and enjoy the ease of one flat price for drinks throughout your cruise - now that's something to raise a glass to. (A few exclusions apply.)

Beer Station
Thirsty? Be your own bartender and pour yourself a cold one during lunch, dinner... or really, any time of day. The Beer Station lets you fill up your mug with ThirstyFrog Red the special in-house brew or fan-favorites from back on land.

Carnival Paradise Ship Entertainment

Whether you're indulging in the exceptional array of Lounges and Nightclubs, being dazzled by the Las Vegas Style Shows, or bringing in the new day with Live Entertainment, Carnival guarantees your cruise will be worth your while.

  • Playlist Productions: Everyone has those perfect songs that never fail to get them moving. Playlist Productions brings lists like yours to life! Your favorites become full-blown musical productions featuring singers and dancers bringing down the house.
  • The Punchliner Comedy Club: Comedy clubs on land... well, it's kinda funny. Nobody likes paying cover charges, and you know that two-drink minimum? They've gotta be joking! You won't find either of these at The Punchliner Comedy Club aboard your Carnival cruise.
  • Deal or No Deal: You know the game show with the briefcases stuffed full of money, a big red button and a mysterious banker phoning in deals? Yep, you've seen it on TV, and now you'll find it on your next Carnival cruise.

Carnival Paradise Ship Spa & Fitness

Vacation is usually a good time to hit the gym. And Carnival has a great one to hit. Or, check out Carnival's Spa rooms where the thermostat only has one setting: "perfect."

  • Cloud 9 Spa: Sometimes you just need to get away... from all that vacation. Sitting at home, it's hard to imagine that, but trust Carnival it's really, really nice to have a place to unwind from the day's excitement.
  • ZSPA: There's a lot to being a teen - they need to kick back, chill and sometimes even indulge just as much as adults, if not more! Carnival understands them, which is why they've tailored onboard ZSPA treatments to their unique needs.
  • Hair & Beauty Salon: A trip to the salon is an opportunity to relax, chat with others, to focus on yourself. It's about more than just getting your hair or nails done... but it's definitely about getting your hair or nails done!
  • Fitness Classes: Whether it's yoga, pilates, indoor cycling or boot camp, there's a fitness class that'll get you the workout you need, and the instruction you need to do it right.
  • Acupuncture: Whether you're looking to pinpoint a specific health concern or just searching for a different way to relax, Carnival's onboard, licensed acupuncturist's table is a great place to do it.

Carnival Paradise Ship Accommodations

When it comes to staterooms, one size only fits some. That's why Carnival has enough variety to satisfy any type of fun seeker.

  • Interior Staterooms
    This is an affordable way to cruise without leaving out the comfort or convenience! Great for curling up after a long day of fun.
  • Scenic Ocean View Staterooms
    A picture window gives you views of scenery you won't find anywhere on land, all from the comfort of your stateroom.
