Does anyone know how to make the Paradise?

My DH and I were on the Dream a few weeks ago and our favorite drink was the Paradise. I know the bartender said it had pineapple juice, coconut rum, cranberry juice, vodka ( I think) but I can't remember what else. Does anyone know?

I have did a search and came up with a couple of other drinks, paradise punch and paradise cocktail but those are not what I'm looking for.

Here is a pic

Might be why the rum is always gone

This is another "take it with a grain of salt" post because half of the time if you order the same "tropical drink" at two different bars you will get two different things.

I was happy to find a bartender whose ratios worked for me last cruise, but I had 14 nights to do it! Also when asked what the "drink of the day" was after we got our nightly navigators, most of the time we were told they would know what was in them tomorrow.

They like their peach schnapps.

I think I will experiment a bit with this because I'm not certain that the first bartender put the Malibu Coconut rum in his version which was my favorite. Thanks.

Yes, the bartender the first day, Craig, made this just perfect to me and I did not taste coconut at all then the last time I had one it tasted too much like coconut and the bartender commented about too much coconut rum. Maybe the original didn't have coconut rum at all?

I agree about the peach schnapps. I think it was in everything.
