Sail Date: May 2019
Cabin: Interior
Walking back to ship in Cozumel.
Ice carving demo.
The atrium, I like how it goes all the way to the sky.

This was my 3rd cruise on the Paradise and 24th overall. I choose this cruise because I like the ship and Cozumel is my favorite port.

Embarkation was great! Tampa is my favorite port to cruise out of. We arrived about 1130 and it took about 15 minutes to board. Went and got lunch and drinks and the cabins were ready before 1:30.

The Paradise was refurbished last year so she is beautiful and in great shape. It is a smaller ship which allows you to get to know other guest and crews easier. We had a little over 2000 passengers and met quite a few people that we enjoyed running into each day.

Cabin Review


Cabin 4C

Roomy compared to NCL. Had no issues with cabin. Inside cabin is very dark which is great for sleeping.

Port Reviews


Google Mr Sancho's.


Tampa is very easy port. You drive right up to the ship. I highly recommend a porter and valet parking.
