At the time of writing this, Carnival Cruise Line had one main ship stationed in Tampa - Carnival Paradise.
(Carnival Pride was also there offering a few sailings, so I will not spend time talking about her.)
Carnival Paradise was commissioned in 1998. This Carnival ship has a passenger capacity of over 2,600 passengers and about 920 crew members.
Carnival Paradise holds the record and bragging rights as the first smoke-free cruise ship to hit the waters.
Additionally, the Paradise features an intriguing decor that I have come to enjoy in all Carnival cruise ships.
The ship’s decor is highly complemented by a wide variety of dining, activity and entertainment.
If you are looking for an out-of-this world cruising experience, the Carnival Paradise will not disappoint.
It will live up to its name – Paradise.
The Paradise offers 2 itineraries of cruises to the Western Caribbean.

Are you ready to book your Carnival Caribbean Cruise from Tampa?
I would be. In fact, we sailed from Tampa in 2004 on Carnival Sensation and again in 2012 aboard Carnival Paradise. We enjoyed both cruises.
My family drove from McDonough, Georgia to the port and it was quite easy to get into. Parking was also the least expensive we've experienced at a cruise port.
