 .Food was just ok. Dinner in the main dinning room took too long to complete a meal 2 1/2 hours. Limited breakfast stations after 9:30 AM. However the staff was very attentive and took care of us.

Overall, we had a very enjoyable time.  We were very pleased with the destinations and with the excursions we selected.  We have been on the Carnival Pride a number of time, so we were quite familiar with the ship's layout, and we were pleased to find that Carnival had done a good job in keeping the ship looking new and in good condition. 

On the down side, we weren't "wowed" by the food or the entertainment.  While both were pretty good, we didn't feel that the quality was good as what we experienced in past cruises.

My wife & I very much enjoyed the cruise and locations.  This was our 3rd cruise on Carnival Pride so the ship feels like home to us.  The only slightly negative observation we saw was that this cruise was overwhelmingly filled with older, retired people.  So, there was a constant dealing with people using scooters, walkers & wheelchairs.  Not a problem for us, but should be noted for younger people wanting a younger crowd on a cruise.

THE BEST BIRTHDAY WITH ALL MY FAMILY (80TH)

My birthday dinner at DAVIDS STEAK HOUSE. Everyone raved about that dinner for the rest of the week. My kids & grandkids could not believe that at my age I rode that GREEN MONSTER water slide. It was a wonderful 7 days together with my family.

The different ports that I have not been  to before was great. I was disappointed that I I didn't get my dinner time request. I liked the comedy shows and the entertainment nightly. Two nites we really didn't have any entertainment. The food was mediocre.  Nothing to say ah about.  the lido deck food was crap.  the staff was great. The beverage package sucks.  I've never had to pay for both people in the room for a package.

Bumpy ride to Mexico

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The spa treatment was so relaxing.  Eileen was wonderful.   Francisco, our cabin steward, was very friendly and accommodating.  Patricia and Gail in the Fun Shop were so nice.  The manager of the Fun Shop agreed to sell me a tanzanite bracelet for a discounted price and then the management went back on their word, because they sold it to another party for more money right in front of me.  That was a slap in the face.  The salesgirls however were very nice to me and expressed their disappointment in that situation.  The management of Carnival obviously cares only about their own profit, not their guests.  Very poor customer service on the part of the managers.  Because of that I will not travel with Carnival again, or recommend them.  I will bet that you will not display this review because the Fun Shop manager treated me badly.  I do not blame the salesgirls.  They were very sweet and professional.

The staff was great from the ones taking care of the cabins to all the servers to the Ken in the dining room.  Really loved the part where he sang to us each evening.  Our group was not seated together for dinner and Ken worked miracles to get us all together and to get the couple that was with us the first night seated with their family -- kudos to Ken.  

I liked the shows in the evening but felt two nights of game shows was a bit much.  

I was not happy when I dropped my watch on the floor and reached under the bed and found a vibrator beside my watch.  You need to look under that bed more often. 

The breakfast in the dining room could have more variety.  

overall a good experience. 

The table and desk in the room looks worse for wear and the general decor is looking tired and old.

A stateroom with a balcony is always a plus I think,and try their Rueben on Libido deck,one of the best I have had thepleasure to eat

Don't buy the bargain sale watches with metal bands from the gift shop as there are no instructions on how to adjust the band (which are set for people with very large wrists). I was told to bring the watch to a jewelry shop when I get home to have the band adjusted.

a stateroom with a balcony is a must and the cheeseburgers on lido deck were the best with the seasoned fries, the ice cream was a very great hit.
