Carnival Paradise - About this Ship

We broke the mold after we made this one. The final Fantasy class ship ever created, Carnival Paradise is proof that there’s not only something in a name, but fun to be found there.

This floating piece of paradise is classic Carnival - fun packed from bow to stern featuring spaces that amaze, amuse and entertain. Fun indoors, outdoors and everywhere in between, Carnival Paradise features great times in and near the water courtesy of hot tubs, pools and a Twister Waterslide, and even tasty fare from the sea, compliments of the Carnival Paradise Sushi Bar.

Cruise with Carnival and you’ll be certain that you’ve found paradise… and that it sails out of Tampa.

Carnival offers a wide range of shore excursions, including walking tours, kayak trips, trolley rides, lobster bakes, pub crawls, and wine tasting.

  • Catalina’s Art Deco Casino: This beautiful twelve-story building is divided into a spectacular grand ballroom and movie theatre. There’s no gambling here—“casino” means gathering place in Italian. A stunning reminder of Catalina’s glorious past.
  • La Balfudora Blowhole: Located just outside of Ensenada, Mexico this is one of the world’s largest blowholes—with water shooting 100 feet in the air from the sea cave below. Visit by bus, or by sea with a guided kayaking expedition.
  • Ensenada Cooking Classes: Visit Ensenada’s beautiful downtown core and learn to make delicious Mexican food including fresh quacamole, tamales, enchiladas, and of course, thirst-quenching margaritas.
