Carnival Pride

November 2015 - Carnival Pride to Caribbean - Bahamas

Carnival Staff make for a great Vacation Experience

Although the itinerary may not have been over the top, the on board experience with the crew members made it a very enjoyable  cruise.   Our stateroom crew was  always at the ready and cheerful in spite of the long hours they must work.  Certainly could not tell it from their attitude and actions.  Friendless smiles and ready to help in any way they could was our experience    Even those in the other areas we encountered as we walked the ship were quick with a smile and a warm greeting.

 

Our formal dining room team was also exceptional.   They worked hard to accommodate some dietary restrictions our family presented as well as the picky palates.  If they sensed there was concern, they quickly checked to see how they could make it better 

 

Their attitude helped to over come so of the less than stellar preparations.   Having cruised for many years, we have noted that the quality of the provisions has decreased some.   Most noticeable was the beef cuts.   Cruise cuisine is more like Hotel Banquet Fare than Fine Dining.  Pretty presentations but doesn't always live up to the billing.

 

It was a great week plus for our family, tremendous value for the vacation dollars and we are looking forward to our next trip!

ialdenswartz's Tips

Nassau, Bahamas - Get away from the cruise port......better food, shopping and value
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island - Walk outside the port area for transportation. The local buses are not allowed inside the compound nor are the regular taxis.
Carnival Pride Carnival Pride - Good vacation value. Ship is updated and has a great crew.
