7 Night Mexican Riviera (Los Angeles Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 17, 2007
Ship: Carnival Pride
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 8 years ago

As a family of independent travelers who've been around the world, our first experience on a cruise ship (Mexican Riviera) was a deep disappointment. In retrospect, I should have done sufficient research, listened to the misgivings of other like-minded travelers, and not been persuaded by television advertising. My advice to people who have never taken a cruise: think carefully about what kind of travel experience you enjoy, ask specific questions about the amenities/activities both on and off ship, ask others specifics about their cruise experience, and listen to their answers.

Pros: experience of ocean travel, ports of call

Cons: Essentially everything else

Recommends Carnival Pride? No.
