No place to dance cruise

Sail Date: July 25, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Balcony

The Pride's interior is designed to look like a mid century castle. Ther are reproduction of paintings on all the walls. The halls near the elevators were dark it was impossible to read the signs describing what was on each floor.

Pros: The weather was perfect

Cons: In an effort to save money all the bands were replaced with single singers with computer generated background music.

Recommends Carnival Pride? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
Our room was a stateroom at the very back of the ship with an extended balcony. The room was large and our room steward cleaned the room at least 3 times per day.
Children's Programs
Grandchildren were in camp carnival, they loved it. The had different activites planned each day.
Service and Staff
On previous cruises the staff manned the Ledo grill to assist with getting drinks and help in seating people. The Pride staff was no were to be found. Getting a drink at any bar was always at ten to twenty minute wait.
All bands have been dropped except for a three peice steel band by the pool. Cheap entertainmet was provided by guest. Starry Night club was all karaoke all the time, final night show was guest imitating singing legends. Other entertainment was guest playing old TV games on stage.
Ship Quality
There was always cleaning equipment stored next to our cabin door. We had to walk around carts with towels, cleaning soaps and supplies.
Food and Dining
Main dinning was exellent, food was great. The Ledo grill was horrible the menu for breakfast never changed. The design of the grill forced you to go to two, three, or four locations. If you wanted bread only certain sections would have it. The fountain for drinks was broken the entire week.
Nassau, Bahamas
This was our fourth visit to Nassau, it is a nice place to vsit. We took a three hour tour of the island that included a trip to Atlantis.
Don't Miss: Everyone should walk through the straw market at least once.
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
This was our third trip to Freeport not much to see here. It is nice that they have a shopping area at the port. Freeport seems to be a stop they put on many cruised as a second or third stop just to pad the cruise.
Port Canaveral, Florida
I have been out of Port Canaveral several times, unless you are going to Orlando or the Space Center there is little to do there.
