I'm on the Paeadise Nov 5th to Rotan and Cozmel. Looking forward to how the Paradise looks, can't be all that diffrent from any other Fantacy class ships.

 

We're booked on the same cruise!

 

Can't wait to see the new Paradise. Thanks for your review.

I had forgotten about that resort. Patti had wanted to visit there since it was right across the road from Sapphire Falls, but she couldn't cross the road unless she walked a long way, and there isn't access by boat. The best I can do for you is this picture of their sign. :D

I'm surprised that you haven't spent time at Universal. We think that you would love it there. :cool:

Maybe next time you and Patti are down this way. Maybe before we cruise to Cuba!

Patti leaves us to have a few, (ahem), more Thirsty Frog’s while she does her usual photo tour of the ship. She heads back into the Paris Restaurant to show us the outside seating along the sides and aft…..

Jeff and Patti, Thank you SO MUCH for the Paradise pix! We sail on Monday and I've been so busy with work and life in general that I haven't done my normal amount of prep before vacation. It just hasn't seemed real. But now, looking through your posts, I'm really looking forward to getting onboard and leaving our worries behind for a few days.

 

And a question ... Are you using an app to scan the FunTimes and menus? Your shots of those things are clearer than I've ever seen!

Always good to have you along with us! We continue to follow your current review. We will be sailing out of NOLA in 2020, though on the Glory and Valor. :D

Jeff you and Patty are the cutest couple ever. Thanks so much for this review. I'm on the Paradise in 30 days!

 

Awwww. Thanks for reading and your kind words! Enjoy your cruise on the Paradise. :cool:
