Carnival Pride

December 2014 - Carnival Pride to Caribbean - Western

A great first cruise for my family

We experienced excellent service and had a lot of fun on this cruise with friends and family.  sea days were very relaxing and we had several excellent shore excursions.  The ones through were especially good: We went to the Mayan site Altun Ha in Belize and went snorkeling on the Barrier reef in Roatan.

The reason for 4 stars is that the ship did mess up on tendering when they did not get passengers off even though several tenders were waiting.  we lost at least an hour ashore at Belize - luckily our tour waited for us but it was stressful and seemed unnecessary since the gang plank was down and boats were waiting for passengers but our tender numbers were called an hour late (no numbers were called for almost an hour).  No idea what was happening. A staff member tried to tell us that there were no boats but we were sitting by a window and 4 tenders were waiting the whole time.  

However our other service was excellent with great waiters in the dining room and room service was perfect.  Our room was very clean.  We also enjoyed the show, especially the piano bar and 88 keys.  The family comedy shows were also good with hilarious kids on the front rows that the comedians played right into. We did not stay up for the adult shows but heard they were standing room only.  Food was too good - we both gained weight.  The young people with us (20s-30s) also had a great time.

kmlisle's Tips

George Town, Grand Cayman - We did not go in early - just went on shore about noon and walked around. Would snorkel if I visited again. Liked the people (hilarious taxi driver) and the beaches are gorgeous. ate at Cactus Jacks at the public beach and walked a lot. Lots of iguanas including adoable green babies and a school of tarpon that are fed by local fishermen at one of the piers.
Belize City, Belize - Great shoe excursion but nightmare tendering. Get an early number if you have a shore excursion
Cozumel, Mexico - easy off - very touristy on shore. we went deep sea fishing but caught very little.
Tampa, Florida - We drpve in and got on the ship. Parktologists are great parking service.
Carnival Pride Carnival Pride - We loved our balconies. We had connecting rooms and had them open the balconies up so we could use both sides and it was great for entertaining.
