7 Night Mexican Riviera (Los Angeles Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 30, 2008
Ship: Carnival Pride
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple

The ship was beautiful, the staff was awesome. It was a bit chilly with the air conditioning. When you are in nice weather, you would like to wear summer clothes aboard ship, however, it was too cold especially in the Taj Mahal to not have a zippy or sweatshirt/sweater on all the time. Our head waiter and assistant waiter, Picholo and Henry, really made our evenings fun. Our room steward was excellent. Our room was always clean and we loved our towel animals very much. The photos were much too expensive, however. We would have purchased more had they been about half the prices.

We enjoyed the catholic church in Old Vallarta and walking around the shops and the beach area. All the locals were very friendly. We found taking the local bus very easy and inexpensive. Highly recommend it for those on a budget or not. We would have liked less time in Puerta Vallarta and more time in Mazatlan
Don't Miss: didn't see much, no excursions here, so don't know

We loved watching the cliff diver, riding the polmonia and our driver, Marcos. He showed us all the sites for over an hour, 4 of us for $20 U.S. It was wonderful. Loved the cathedral, the houses, the streets, the architecture, the Golden Zone, the Shrimp Bucket for great Margaritas.
Don't Miss: Riding in the polmonia and having the best drivers. They were fun, easy to engage and spoke great English. They also put up with my very weak Spanish.

We did not like getting bombarded just getting off the tender, even though we knew we would. The weather wasn't very nice, very windy, and not very warm. We didn't feel safe getting in the water taxi because it was rough. We had trouble scouting out our own real taxi from the marina. Time was too short so you couldn't go far on your own, but we went to Billigan's and it was okay.
Don't Miss: don't know, nothing really

Pros: The staff all over the ship, the cleanliness, and the safe and secure feeling we had aboard ship.

Cons: The dining room food was average, cafeteria quality, but presentation was lovely.

Recommends Carnival Pride? Yes!
