October 2015 - Carnival Pride to Caribbean - Eastern
Our Carnival cruise was not quite as good as we expected this time. Although Carnival added Guys Burgers and Blue Iguana Cantina (which were both great) the other buffet food was ok. Mechanical and/or electrical problems caused elevators and AC to fail one day and water did not work on part of the ship, so some public bathrooms got really backed up (STINKY). We did not even use the Casino once because of all the smoking in there. We had heard that the Carnival Pride had some renovations/upgrades done.. Other than adding another water slide and changing the food options, we did not notice any other changes. The dining room staff and our stateroom attendant were really great but overworked. Carnival should have had more waiters on staff - these guys worked their butts off (and always with a smile). We did have great weather, and in spite of the problems mentioned above, we had a good time. We will cruise again, but maybe not on Carnival Pride.
