Review Summary

We just completed our cruise on the Carnival Pride. What a wonderful experience. Neither my husband or myself had ever been on a cruise before. It was very exciting for us. The ship itself is beautiful. But the most important part was how the staff made us feel. Everyone was so friendly and professional. We felt like royalty. If it was in my power, I would give everybody a raise. I was also impressed by the fact that everyone (staff) was from different countries. It would be amaising if the rest of us could get along so well together. Having never been on a cruise before, I was impressed by the activities. You could find something to fit every mood & time of day or night. We stopped in three ports. We had fun in all three, but our favorite by far is Cabo San Lucas. It is beautiful. We have shared our positive experience with several of our friends and encouraged them to book a cruise. It is well worth it. We will certainly be cruising more in the future!

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

5 out of 5
This port is beautiful. The shopping is the best, but the time here was too short. We didn't have time to eat here.
Don't Miss: We went on the Jeep Rhino trip. It is awesome, we even saw whales. Lots of fun.

Pros: I felt like a celebrity

Cons: It was a little rough sailing & I experienced some nausea
