Dress Code

What Should I Pack?
The first thing to remember is that you're on vacation and you are onboard Carnival Cruises’ ‘Fun Ships’ to have a good time. Secondly, remember to travel light. Keeping these two pieces of advice in mind are very important for packing.

Casual attire and resort wear is typically appropriate attire onboard and in-port. Shorts, slacks, sundresses, blouses, sandals, etc., are appropriate for women, and clothing for men is just as casual. Travelers might also want to consider bringing along a sweater or jacket for cool evenings and inexpensive rain gear in case of a sudden shower. While restaurants typically have casual dress code, there are also instances where you may visit a specialty restaurant or attend a special Captain’s Cocktail Party and Gala Farewell Dinner that requires business casual or formal attire. For days in port where you will be participating in various shore excursions, you should dress accordingly to the dress codes of the sites you are visiting, as well as bring a pair of sneakers for strenuous walking.

Formal Wear: Men: suit and tie, sport coat, tie and slacks; Women: evening dresses, cocktail dresses; pantsuits.

Casual Resort Wear: Men: sport shorts, slacks; Women: dresses, skirts, shorts, Capri pants.

*Please Note: Shorts, t-shirts, tank tops, and bathing attire are not permitted in the Dining Room during dinner.

Fitness / Recreation

The spa onboard Carnival Paradise is an ideal place to get away from all of the activity and revive your mind and body for a while. Allow yourself to fully relax while getting a massage, which is sure to soothe all of your tired muscles, or, let your cares drift away in the steam room and sauna.


Grab the entire family and head down to the Main Dining Room where you’ll be served a delicious multi-cuisine meal with savory options such as steak, seafood, pasta, chicken, or even vegetarian plates. If you’re in the mood for something quick, opt for the 24-hour room service menu or the 24-hour pizzeria. If being surrounded by the ocean throughout your entire cruise vacation has got you craving seafood, the sushi bar onboard Carnival Paradise is sure to please your palate. The buffet restaurant also allows even the pickiest eaters to be satisfied, with a plethora of international dishes – many of which are inspired by the ports-of-call you visit.
