Room Type: Balcony

The ship was always clean and all the employees were so friendly!! I love the representation of all the different nationalities! The food really was good and superb in the Normandie Dining Room! There was lots of entertainment and plenty of announcements and prior information given. The Carnival Caper is such a great help! The talks about the excursions and ports were invaluable. Overall, I was very impressed with the whole cruise. Even our rooms were always cleaned and all the 'extra' little touches like the towel animals made us feel so pampered. The spa services were so nice, I had a wonderful massage the first night. They were a little pushy selling products; to be expected I guess. The ONLY two things I could suggest is a better brand of coffee in the Mermaid Grille and post limitation signs on the hot tubs (there may already be signs, but I don't remember noticing). We tried numerous times to get into the hot tubs and they were always full of young people who would stay in them for 1-3 hours at a time! There was always so much to do and yet so many ways to just relax. Thank you, it was what we busy, selp-employed people needed!! One more thing, the excursions were nice, but the sailing ones at Cabo San Lucas were great! Mazatlan had a lot of extremely pushy vendors. More than anywhere else. And we loved walking the streets of Puerto Vallarta and taking the jeep excursion up into the villages in the hills. Fun!!

Pros: Freedom to do what you chose! Beauty everywhere!

Cons: Coffee! The coffee wasn't good and no flavored creams! I had to buy Mochas everyday and that's FATTENING!

Recommends Carnival Pride? Yes!

Mazatlan, Mexico
Had a nice bus tour, but the lady kept pushing a jewelry store she liked and she was a little hard to understand. Pretty broken English. Really enjoyed the cliff divers and the Mexican dances and the Popantia Flyers.
Don't Miss: The Mexican dances and Popantia Flyers. The Shrimp Factory at the Golden Zone was very delicious!
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
The sailing trips and snorkeling trips are so much fun. We even saw gray whales! Didn't have time to do a lot of sightseeing after this excursion. But loved what we saw!
Don't Miss: Sailing and snorkeling at Chileno Bay!

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
The Si Senor Restaurant is very nice! Great atmosphere and friendly staff! Enjoyed walking the boardwalk and seeing the sand sculptures. Enjoyed the jeep excursion, though it was a little long.
Don't Miss: The beaches along the boardwalk.
