Very disappointing-won't sail Carnival

Sail Date: April 20, 2008

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

Be aware: you can not drink the water on the ship. not even to rinse your mouth after brushing your teeth. bathroom always had a terrible ordor. decor of the ship was so tacky. we have been on many cruises and this was the first time, that we decided NOT to eat in the dining room because the food was just as bad as the why bother dressiing up??? water slide was hardly EVER open for the kids too...

Pros: bed was comfortable, Cabo San Lucas

Cons: WATER, FOOD, decor of ship, puerto vallarta

Recommends Carnival Pride? No.

i've seen better productions put on at my local schools!!
Children's Programs
should have been great but my kids didn't like it...staff was unfriendly and acted like they didn't want to be there!
Ship Quality
probably the tackiet, ugliest ship i have ever cruised on and i have been on many many cruises, on many different cruise lines. i won't sail carnival again unless the ship is brand new....
Food and Dining
my dog would have a problem eating their food everyday. one world: horrible!
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
a little small but i will say the bed was very very comfortable!
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
beautiful port. went snorkeling and got stung by a portugese man-of-war so that stunk! a lot of people did from the ship...loved the town...great restaurants, shops. i would love to go back there and stay for a week there.
Don't Miss: Sammy Haggar'd bar "Cabo Wabo"--great live bands and drinks were great!! :)
Mazatlan, Mexico
another dirty city...we ended up paying to hang out at a gold crown resort. i was surprised at how ugly the beaches were. it seem i was looking at the same ocean from home (cape cod) ...not impressed at all
Don't Miss: local mexican restaurant that served the best nachos i ever had!!
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
don';t get off the ship...dirty dirty city, rotten beaches, beggers EVERYWHERE you go hated hated hated it!!
Don't Miss: i can't think of one thing
