1 cruise (first)
Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Mar 23, 2014
As a first time cruiser I had no idea what to expect on this vacation. From the moment I booked the cruise, up until I returned hom from my vacation, I was pleased. I was kept up to date with emails before the vacation began. If I had questions or concerns I was encouraged to make them known. The embarkation process was easy, the directions to the port were understandable, and all of the Carnival employees were helpful. Our balcony room was small, but that it always expected on a cruise, so I have learned. The balcony was a great asset and I'm glad I chose the balcony suite because the view was spectacular. It was also very helpful to have natural light in the room when the power went out on the ship for about an hour on Monday morning. Hearing from others aboard the ship, the interior suites were dark and they couldn't see anything! There was always something to do aboard the ship, and there was always food available to eat no matter the time of day. Our shore excursion in Nassau was cancelled at the last minute due to high winds (we were supposed to go parasailing) and we were afraid we wouldn't be able to find anything to do. We were able to take a carriage ride thru the city and just wander around shopping on our own. There were plenty of other excursions we could have picked from, even at the last minute. In Freeport we chose the culinary experience which I would highly recommend. The food aboard the ship was amazing, the staff was friendly, and the whole vacation was fabulous. I'm so glad I booked this trip!
