Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

This was a great experience for a first time cruise with our girls, 11 & 13 year olds. There were tons of families with kids on board, and the crowd slanted pretty young. There were lots of young couples and young families aboard. The kids had plenty of things to do. As adults, we never felt overrun by youngsters. The staff was great, the food inviting, and there were plenty of dining options. The ship was clean and well maintained. The ports were a little warm in late July, but everything we did involved getting wet, and the water was wonderful! Bring pants and a light jacket or sweater as the first and last day of the cruise can be cool even in summer.

Pros: friendly helpful crew

Cons: occasional lines or crowds

Recommends Carnival Pride? Yes!

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
lovely to stroll in the old town and along the malecon.
Don't Miss: dolphin royal swim and sea lion encounter thrilled the kids
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
beautiful beaches, great snorkeling, clear water. Time here is too short.
