My wife and I are considering booking on the Paradise for the last East Coast trip Aug 29 2004. Any one have any ides about taking the last cruise, would this be a bad thing? Also would welcome any comments on the Paradise in general. We would probably book an out side room on upper or empress deck, any comments on this
We've been in Oceanview rooms on the Main and Empress decks and once upgraded to a balcony mini-suite on the Verandah Deck. Loved the Verandah deck .... close to everything. Empress was nice as well. Nothing wrong with the Main deck, but each deck down is a deck farther away from stuff!
We've sailed the Paradise on almost every cruise we've been on because of her beauty and the non-smoking environment (guess no reason not to check out other cruiselines after next year.) I would imagine the repositioning cruise would be interesting, sadly I can only imagine 90% of the passengers lighting up on the last leg!
I'm sure you'll have a great time, be sure to post your review if you do!
