Carnival Pride Cruise Review to Mexico
Sail Date: April 09, 2006
Ship: Carnival Pride
Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Family (young children)

The ship overall was nice; the decorations were fairly gaudy. The crew was extremely nice and helpful--we had great service at dinner from Amin & Plamera. The downside was, the three of us were seated at a table set for nine people--no other diners EVER showed up, and the Maitre d' told us that he didn't want to move anyone--so we never got the chance to meet other shipmates during meals, which is for me the big social opportunity to bond with other passengers. Every night, the three of us went to our huge table...and looked like outcasts.
And again--if we had known there was no water slide, we probably would have booked a different ship.

Don't Miss: Dinner at La Palapa
Pros: We thought the food on this ship was better than on the Celebrity line!
Cons: All the advertising for this ship showed a pool with a big water slide--and as we were taking our 11 year old son with us, this was one of the reasons we chose this ship. We found out, however, when we boarded, that the slide had been dismantled. Big disappointment!!!
