Default Carnival Paradise

Yes, I am still around. Last cruise October 2010 on the Radiance of the Seas. Looking at a shortie though out of Tampa and see the Inspiration is being replaced by the Paradise for the 4's and 5's out of Tampa. According to the deck plans it seems to be one of the last Fantasy class that hasn't had the upgrades to the pooldeck and the slides out out back. Are they refitting this one on the way from Cali to Tampa? Anyone know?

Did a bit of searching here is what I found -

Paradise to go into dry dock Jan 28th- Feb 11th 2012 to be refurbished. From what I read that it will not be getting the waterworks upgrades the other ships got. This will be maintenance, fixing things and cleaning things up.

John said that Paradise and Elation, the two ships that were on the West Coast who missed the waterworks upgrade, neither will be getting waterworks. Maybe something better in their future? But not now.

Four of the Fantasy class ships got balconys .. I was so excited when Ecstasy got them and now they are giving the gulf Elation, and sending Ecstasy to Port Canaveral.

Thanks for the feedback. I have been on Sensation before waterworks and Inspiration after it. Also saw some of the balconies tacked on the outside of ship as an afterthought when in Cozumel last time on the Radiance of the Seas. Personally I have always thought the Fantasy class as ugly.
