Carnival Cruise Ship Receiving Monster Makeover

Carnival Cruise Line has announced plans for a mega makeover on one of their cruise ships that will see a spectacular water park added, 38 new staterooms, 98 balconies added to existing staterooms, and a wide range of new and exciting food and beverage concepts.

Carnival Paradise will spend an entire month in dry dock in Freeport, Bahamas and then resume its year-round schedule of four- to eight-day cruises from Tampa on March 26, 2018.

Carnival Cruise Line announced the following new features being added to Carnival Paradise while the cruise ship is in dry dock:

New Cabins, Stateroom Enhancements: Thirty-eight cabins have been added – two Grand Vista suites offering floor-to-ceiling windows, 22 junior suites, two scenic ocean view cabins and 12 interior accommodations. Additionally, private verandahs have been added to 98 existing staterooms, creating spacious new 230-square-foot balcony staterooms. All staterooms will offer new island-inspired interiors with bright colors and soothing pastels inspired by Carnival Paradise’s tropical itineraries.
