Good experience

Sail Date: January 04, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was very nice. Some of the things we were dissapointed about was the smoking allowed on board and the entertainment on board all seemed to be the same stuff an the shore excursions were very expensive and the one we did that was really dissapointing was the beach horseback riding- very boring and unexciting. The food was really good, opposite of what a lot of reviewers mentioned, the room was bigger then expected, we got a blacony room on the fifth floor. The staff was all very nice and helpful. The ship gift shop was very dissapointing and we found ourselves needing a lot of things when we got to some of the ports.

Pros: Food, room

Cons: Not a lot to do, smoking on board, not as nice a region as expected

Recommends Carnival Pride? Yes!

Ship Quality
Good overall but smoking on board was a definite negative thing. The ship was very nice and clean
Not something we enjoyed as much, really one of our only things to rate lower then the other thing.
Food and Dining
Better then expected
Cabin / Stateroom
Really happy and suprised at quality and size
Service and Staff
Very helpful and courteous
Mazatlan, Mexico
We took an off cruise tour from a local tour guide for forty dollars and really had a suprisingly good time. We got a lot of the history and saw a lot of the major sites of the town
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Dolphin signature swim was awesome! The prices for photos was very expensive though, $25 for one 5x7 was pretty outrageous to us. We really didnt explore too much
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
We were really dissapointed in this port as we expected it to be more pretty then we actually saw. Nothing really exciting about it. We did beach horseback riding and wished we could have gotten our money back.
