The shows were great. The food was very good. The ports and excursions were beautiful.

The staterooms were very nice and housekeeping kept them clean.

Outside of a long wait to get on the boat we did not have to deal with long lines.

Very good cruise - excellent value

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Dec 07, 2014

This was a very good cruise with excellent ports of call, terrific staff and delicious meals.  Expensive meats like prime rib, lamb and lobster was on the menu.  The ship is great with lots of activities and lots of quiet places if you just want to curl up with a book.

 The only thing that soured me was that they allow smoking in the casino, and the place stinks of smoke.  As a result I did not spend any time at the casino.

Problems I seen on this ship.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Dec 07, 2014

The ship was out dated.  It needs to go in the yards for an update.  The water tasted off.  Items on the walls have been broken and the repair was not up to standards that I have set for you cruise lines.  The colors on the walls and overhead were dark and made the ship very dark.

Worst cruise ever

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Nov 30, 2014

Boarding process went smoothly, and our cabin was ready as we boarded.  This was the high point of this cruise.  Our cabin steward was also very good and efficient.  The cruise Director was the worst we have encountered in our 400+ days of cruising on multiple lines.  He insisted on volume levels that caused several of the more mature group, such as us, to walk out of shows.  He kept insisting that the sound man "turn up the volume".  All entertainment was directed at the "20 something" groups.  While our fixed late seating dining staff was exceptional, the service at open seating breakfast and brunch was awful.  Orders were incomplete, coffee refills were difficult, and one assistant waiter stated that bananas were only available on port days, while people in our party who ate at the buffet were served them without delay. Shipboard activities were often in error in the daily "FUN TIMES", and said we would arrive in Cozumel at 9am, when we were actually docking in Costa Maya.  Disembarkation was a disaster, after arriving several hours late, we were held aboard for an additional 2+ hours.  No more Carnival for us.

2 weeks on cruise, very restful vacation until disembarkment from hell.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Nov 30, 2014

Nice cruise, even with bad weather on first week.  ship left 6 hrs late, no problem as we were on ship.  credit per room not correct on accounts.  cruise wouldnt put on.  we were not set at same table for dinner.  had to fix ourselves.  disembarkement was most disorganized I have ever seen.  left ship at 12:30 for 12:45 flight.  spent all day in Baltimore, where we were sent to avoid buying new ticket.  got home midnight insted of 5 pm.  people with early flights who had zeroed out account should be allowed to leave.  Was good to have room near   brother.  i will probably take my chances with agent with next cruise.  didnt seem to be much  benefit besides close room.   I basically enjoyed cruise.  but i am always glad to be on water.  I have been on over 50 cruises, and was disapointed with things I had to do that were supposed to be done by agent.  maybe it wasnt his fault.

Carnival Pride Cruise Rich & Carol Rooney

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Nov 23, 2014

The room assignment was directly under the Lido deck kitchen which is active 24 hrs. a day. Difficult to sleep as service carts roll over your head. The evening entertainment shows  had to be re-shown to compensate for the bad weather which caused us to miss two of the port stops. Woefully inadequate. On board activities was limited to trivia games!! The food was good. the staff service was good. But I believe I will not be cruising with Carnival for some time to come.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Nov 23, 2014

My husband and I were very pleased with our cruise. From the smooth check in until we disembarked. The service was excellent, the dining room was always pleasant and the entertainment was very good. We have already checked into another cruise and we haven't been home a week. We would highly recommend this cruise line.    Thank you

Family Thanksgiving

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Nov 23, 2014

We had 6 family members and 3 cabins and all had a wonderful time. The Pride is a beautiful ship and everyone goes out of there way to make you happy.  We missed 2 ports because of weather but had an extra fun sea day which we older people enjoyed and made port  at another island to make up for missing the scheduled one.  Everyone tried different foods and added some new favorites to our food list.  The only negative was waiting 1 1/2 hours for wheelchairs to get to older family members on the ship.  The handicap deportation went very smooth.  I've sailed many times on many lines and the Pride is my new favorite.

We had a blast on this cruise.   Without a doubt the nicest ship we have ever been on.   Would recommend this to anyone.   The food and service was first class.   We had a extended balcony room and it was very clean and comfortable.   Thank you Carnival Pride!

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

Get to the hot tubs on the first night while you can while everyone is checking out the ship ceause after that they are never free!

STATE ROOM WITH A BALCONY IS A MUST AS YOU OBSERVE THE SUNSET AND BREATHE THE FRESH SEA AIR!
