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.
Food and Dining
3 out of 5
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.

There was always cleaning equipment stored next to our cabin door. We had to walk around carts with towels, cleaning soaps and supplies.
Cabin / Stateroom
5 out of 5
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.
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.
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.
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.
