Default Paradise -4/8/01- First Time Cruisers

I wanted to know if this is less of a party ship since it has a non-smoking restriction.
Me & my husband are going on a cruise for the first time (Carnival Paradise on April 08, 2001). I am not a fan of smoking (& do not smoke) but I would be dissapointed if that deters from a party environment on the ship.
Looking for comments from people who have cruised on the Paradise & also planning to meet people our age (32 & 35) on this cruise!!

I cruised on the Paradise for my honeymoon in May 99. My husband and I had a blast. It was his first cruise and my third. He had a wonderfull time and now I have him hooked on cruising. My parents are taking the whole family on the Nov 10 sailing on the Triumph. Can't wait for that trip.

The partying on the Paradise was awesome, no different than any other ship. If you like to party you will always find someone or some place that has it happening. The discos are great too. What makes it so great is that it is smoke free and you do not need to even think about it bothering you b/c there is none. That was the best part about the cruise. It was great having the casino non-smoking.

When we got back if we were around people that smoked, it bothered me more b/c we were used to not being around it for a week.

So have a good time and enjoy. Oh there are so many people and many places on the ship you will meet people.

My boyfriend (37) and I (27) are also sailing on the Paradise on April 8. Ive heard that this ship is a little less active than others because of the non-smoking aspect. However, I like to have a good time and we will be out dancing the night away!! If nothing more, there will be 2 other people in the clubs with you!
