We sailed on the Carnival Pride for the second time, and all I can say is "Wow!". We knew the ship was beautiful, but we had no idea what to expect with cruising with the Rusty Wallace party. 24 hour Pizza bar for the kids, Dining choices were really excellent. Formal dining was beautiful and cozy, the service was even better than the already great service the dining room staff usually delivers, and the steaks and chops were outstanding, comparable to any great steak house. The Midnite buffet really isn't a "buffet" anymore, now it's like a cool marketplace/food court with many more choices, (so no endless line!). Very wide-open and airy feeling, a huge step up from the typical ship buffet. We loved all the nightlife options. The shows were great and the live music on the Lido deck. Felt like a totally different night out, every single night. The ship features are most apparent on the pool deck, truly one of the most beautiful we've ever seen. Our stateroom was cozy we always get the balony room and again was not dispointed.Overall we have to say the ship was really impressive, the staff was wonderful as always, and even if you've sailed on Carnival Pride before you can go again and again.
