Needs Improvement

Sail Date: March 04, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

Can't use swinning pools, too cold. No large tables available except in the dining rooms to play card games, game room unavailable, used to sell more cruise. Cocktail parties in theater, have to sit like watching a show, no place to mingle with other guests - dance floor up on stage, cruise director talks, talks, talks - the big sell. No free craft classes, yoga or pilates workouts, first Bingo cost $20 for three cards for only ONE games. Drinks TOO expensive. Rented a video to watch in room $8.99 and lost movie 2 times while watching - the second time approx. 10 minutes before end - gave up. No DVD players, no video library, no good books or magazines in library. Deck dance party held at night with lots of fog or dew, deck so wet dangerous to walk much less dance.
Casino filled with smoke from smokers, also tables around pool area. Excessive photography services. You are inundated by people trying to take your picture, starting before you go on board. I'll go on a different cruise line next time.

Pros: Service and Food Excellent

Recommends Carnival Pride? No.

Mazatlan, Mexico
Took the Trolley Tour. Won't ever do this again. Trolley abandoned us in town. Had to hire a taxi to catch up with trolley. Tour guide waited for lengthy times at all other stops for others, but not this time. He even waited to pick up other people from a different trolley that only had one couple on it. I get very tired of stopping at "sights" for shopping. The trolley stopped to see a man dive from a large rock in the harbor, which is not the place which is famous for jumping off cliffs. They pretend that these are the famous divers and you are again pestered repeatedly for $ for the divers and sellers.
