7 Night Mexican Riviera (Los Angeles Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 19, 2008
Ship: Carnival Pride
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 9 years ago

Decor is terrible and makes your eyes hurt. If you have small children, you will have to explain all the naked people. Our 15 year old son was jokingly giving directions like "turn left at the nipple".

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Small portions, low diversity. Service adequate but not as good as Royal Carribean.


3 out of 5
Comedians great, first show enjoyable. Magician weak.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
15 year old son really enjoyed Club 02.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Mostly phillipino crew. Quiet and respectful, not friendly. No connection between waiter and table. Seemed like "just a job".

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
Decor is gaudy and makes no sense. Naked statue of David is center of ship. Wallpaper with naked cherubs and people everywhere coupled with neon, raccoco and whatever else.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Good size, decor adequate. Very comfortable. Hairdryer in drawer attached to very short cord. Good location

Go to Royal Sierra Hotel in the Gold Zone. $12.00 by taxi. Spend day by pool in lounge chairs. Boogy boards $12.00, parasailing $35.00, jet skis etc. Pool has wonderful waterfalls and a great slide for kids.

Pros: Comfortable beds, quiet stateroom, close proximity to dining room

Cons: food, decor of ship, friendliness of staff

Recommends Carnival Pride? No.
