Carnival Cruse Line’s ’Carnival Paradise’ is undergoing an extensive, multi-million-dollar refurbishment at the Grand Bahama Shiprepair yard located at Freeport, Bahamas.
During the refit, the vessel will be fitted with a water park, 38 new cabins, 98 balconies to existing staterooms and many new food and beverage concepts.
Following the month-long drydock, ‘Carnival Paradise’ will resume her year-round schedule of four- to eight-day cruises from Tampa, Fla, on 26th March, 2018.
The new features will include:
⦁ Guy’s Burger Joint: a free-of-charge pool side venue developed in partnership with Food Network personality, Guy Fieri.
⦁ RedFrog Rum Bar: a pool side watering hole offering the Caribbean rum-based frozen drinks and beers, including Carnival’s own private label draught brew – ThirstyFrog Red.

⦁ BlueIguana Tequila Bar: an outdoor bar.
⦁ Camp Ocean: a marine-inspired play area designed for kids aged 2-11.
⦁ New Cabins, Stateroom Enhancements: Thirty-eight cabins will be added – two Grand Vista suites offering floor-to-ceiling windows, 22 junior suites, two scenic ocean view cabins and 12 interior accommodations. In addition, private verandahs will be installed on 98 existing staterooms, creating new 230 sq ft balcony staterooms.
⦁ WaterWorks Aqua Park: Located on Verandah Deck, this water park will feature an enclosed 300 ft long twister water slide, two 82 ft long racing slides, and a splash zone for kids.
⦁ Miniature Golf Course: A nine-hole miniature golf course will be relocated to Deck 14.
