January 2015 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Pride
First time on the Pride
This is the smallest Carnival ship we have been on which allowed for some good and bad points. The good part was there are many less people than their larger ships. It is much quicker to walk from front to back and the service, for the most part, was of the same great quality that we've come to appreciate. On the bad side, it felt as if the entertainers and restaurant staff were their "minor league" team. The singer in the Ivory Piano Bar was so bad it was embarrassing. And while our wait staff were very friendly, they were just not as on their game as we've had with the larger ships. Overall, though, we had a great experience and enjoyable time, as usual with Carnival.
