Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was set up very well, the crew had a lot of activities for all ages, and the art aspect of the ship was very nice.

Pros: Lots of really good food! Comedians, and all the shows were awesome!

Cons: Losing bingo everytime I played. Our dinner lasted about 2 hours everynight, but we spent a lot of time talking to our new friends at the table.

Recommends Carnival Pride? Yes!

Ship Quality
The ship was in great condition, every port day the crew would be cleaning windows and decks. And every night at like 2 am the crew would be completely soaking down the floors in the restraunts and near the pools and mopping them clean.
Food and Dining
24 hour pizza bar was very nice after a night of dancing in Beauties the night club. At dinner there were a lot of choices on the menu and if you didn't like what you had you could order a new one, or order multiple to try a few things.
Cabin / Stateroom
You can control your own temperature for the most part and that was nice, our balcony door somtimes whistled in the wind. The cost of drinks from the mini bar was pretty outrageous.
Service and Staff
Everyone on the ship was really nice, go out of their way for you. Made really good friends with our dinner servers, and bar made. I miss those 3 a lot.
The comedians, hypnotist, juggler/magic show, and even the crew who joined in on the shows to open up for the entertainers were very funny, and made the cruise a lot of fun. Was a little frightening going to shows thinking you might be picked to go on stage, though it was all in fun I would rather watch then join in, atleast this time.
Mazatlan, Mexico
Mazatlan is a really cool place, not yet over comercialized, the port was right beside the port for cargo ships and rail ways, was a short trip to the beaches, the views from the ship were amazing! Really nice people. Shopping beach and lunch excursion was very nice, and relaxing. We were able to watch a great show, have the freedom to shop or swim for the rest of the day from the comfort of a resort beach and bar.
Don't Miss: We did a Shopping beach and lunch excursion that started off with a show near the market, very awesome show, very proud people.
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
This port was really awesome, were the boat ported at wasn't all that close to the beaches but we had other things to do. When we got up the morning we got here we saw dolphins jumping around just out side of our balcony. We swam with dolphins here and it was a lot of fun, then that afternoon we went on Rythems of the night excursion, awesome show, great food, and very romantic evening. Book excursion priar to going on the cruise, we did it the first day we were on the boat and it cost about 50% more.
Don't Miss: Rythems of the Night was great!
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
We have been to Cabo before about 2 years ago, I loved it then, and still love it now. Though the marina has lost a little of its beauty from too many large buildings blocking views from the Mall bridge.
Don't Miss: Take a stroll through the marina, though you get hounded to buy a lot of stuff tell them no thanks and enjoy the walk.
