Pre-Cruise Tampa Events

Wednesday, March 4, 2020 Local Tampa Events

We recommend you arrive at least a day early to make sure you don’t miss the ship, especially if you’re flying or taking another public transportation system. Be sure to check out Trip Tips and FAQs too.

For those arriving from outside the area early, you’ll have a wonderful opportunity to extend your visit / vacation to Tampa and/or the Sunshine State of Florida, the vacation capital of the world. The Gulf Coast City of Tampa in particular has so much to do as visitors from around the nation and world discover each year. Click here to learn more about the area and some of the attractions you can take advantage of before or after your Cruise.

Welcome to Tampa

CWSC with the help of local Christian, Muslim, Jewish, and Bahai communities, we’re planning an interfaith meet & greet, time to be determined, in the late afternoon early evening. And we’re planning a earlier in the day hands-on, on the ground community outreach project that will enable us to help with a local community project while we’re all together. It’ll be a great way to do good and help remake the world!

Please check back for details as we get closer to the event.

Our March 5th – 9th Cozumel Cruise Itinerary is below. We’re looking forward to hosting you!

Carnival Cruise Itinerary CWSC352020


We broke the mold after we made this one. The final Fantasy class cruise ship ever created, Carnival Paradise is proof that there’s plenty of fun to be found long before you reach your dream destination.

While we’ve never stopped adding the latest and greatest features to the ship, this ship remains classic Carnival — fun-packed from bow to stern. With so much of it indoors, outdoors and everywhere in between, Carnival Paradise features great times in and near the water courtesy of hot tubs, pools and a WaterWorks waterpark featuring a giant spiraling slide and dual racing slides. For those who appreciate a good story, there’s Seuss at Sea with an interactive storytime and parade!

On the food front, aboard this ship there’s two of our top casual spots: Guy’s Burger Joint, featuring the goods from Guy Fieri, and BlueIguana Cantina, with authentic south-of-the-border taco/burrito goodness. Refreshments — and good times — abound. And a little closer to home (well, your vacation home), Carnival Paradise now features even more staterooms with a balcony. Feel that breeze!

Spend a vacation aboard Carnival Paradise, and you’ll find a little slice of cruise ship paradise at sea.
