A Look at the Carnival Paradise 

Sailing from Downtown Tampa, the Carnival Paradise features a 12,000-square-foot Spa Carnival health and wellness facility and an exclusive Serenity adults-only retreat (my favorite spot on every Carnival ship). The Seuss at Sea programming featuring the Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast with The Cat in the Hat and Friends are also a part of this ship. Fun for all, indeed!

Guests sailing on these select sailings to Havana can choose from exciting shore excursion experiences that showcase Cuba’s vibrant culture and majestic beauty, along with the island’s warm and friendly people and centuries-old architectural landmarks. It sounds pretty incredible, doesn’t it?
