What a Let Down

Sail Date: November 01, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

Ship was not up to par compared to other ship I have been on. Thing were broken down and out of order not just for the day but the whole week. Signs of destruction and vandallism. Unfriendly crew.

Pros: The Shows

Cons: "Closed Due to Maintenance" Signs

Recommends Carnival Pride? No.

Ship Quality
The smallest cruise ship I have ever been on, therefore you feel alot of motion of the ocean and engine vibration, felt more like a tug boat.
Food and Dining
Main dining was excellent staff and food, very dissappointed that you get dressed nice to go to dinner and get stuck sitting in a fast food style booth, never seen anything like that on any other ship. Mermaid Grill staff was very middle of the road and sometime even rude, the food there was OK for dinner but the breakfast was simply not for human consumption.
Service and Staff
Stateroom attendent was the only one who went above and beyond. Waiter in Dining room could not understand us speaking half the time and we had a hard time understanding him.
Evening shows were great but during the day other then every type of trivia you can imagine there really wasnt much going on. Never ran into a lack of activities on other ships, usually so much going on you dont know which one to choose.
Children's Programs
They did the best they could with the limited amount of space in the childrens area. Again on other ships the childrens play area is much larger.
Cabin / Stateroom
Compared to the rest of the ship, the room was top notch and the Stateroom attendent was the Best
