Very enjoyable cruise

Sail Date: April 01, 2010

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Suite

Geting on/off the ship went well. Other than our Monday storm (Which was awful for many), smooth sailing. Layout is simple. More laundry facilities would have been nice. I wanted relaxation, and for the most part, got it.

Pros: Choices/Options

Cons: They try to squeeze $ from you right when you get onboard, so be prepared!

Recommends Carnival Pride? Yes!

Not much on shows, but a couple of the competitions were fun. Accupuncture seminar was given by a lady who struggled with english. Daughters teenage massage exprience was stellar! Gym was barely functional compared to other ships. Didnt go on excursions- and they are pricy. Did leave ship in freeport & Nassau, and it is the typical mixed bag of trinkets & peddlers.
Ship Quality
Ship seems very clean, despite the efforts of many fat americans to make it otherwise. Sure would be nice to have some "Non-Smoking" ships as an option. To many common areas reek, and balcony smokers suck.
Food and Dining
Unlike most, I find the buffet to be very fine, and the restaurants tremendously overrated.
Cabin / Stateroom
I splurged for a suite with oversized balcony, and it was terrific.
Service and Staff
The portion of the crew that cleans is typically the most friendly, while the bartenders are typically the least friendly. Go figure.
