The cruise is a nice one, enough food, polite crew, efficient service, clean room.

There are about 4 jacuzzi pools and 2 swimming pools, but the swimming pools are just too small, nobody would really like to go inside, and they are too deep for young kids. These pools aret therefore a waste.

Gym close too early at 8pm.
Food is ok, but no too much change over the week. only two or three dishes in the Normandi Restaurant really tasted wonderful, most were just so so altough I believe the chiefs tried their best to serve the people. The Asian food corner is too small with 2 choices + rice + noodle + soup.

no movie night, no too much entertainment on board, the shows in the nights were boring, except the hypnosis show which is fantastic.

In general, with the price, the provided by Carnival Pride is fine, although I think there is room to improve and the price could be a little higher.

convenient, but not too many varieties, no juice

very limited. You'd better take with yourself some DVD movies and video games to kill time

information is not as available as port canaveral. until you visited then you know how to deal with those things. You actually do not need to book the ship's shore excursion and you can get off the ship and find one by yourself. All are directly availabe at the gate and the price is flat and very reasonable. The people there are also very nice
Don't Miss: the sea and the beach, the water is just beautiful

everything here is very convenient. Avis, Hertz, Enterprise are all nearby and free shuttles every 15 mintues between the port and the car rental services
Don't Miss: rent a car and visit points of interest instead of using the provided "shore excursion"

seems nothing is there? you should get on a taxi to drive you somewhere else to see something
Don't Miss: you can skipthis port. nothing really worthy of paying time here

Pros: the upper decks

Cons: food, swimming pools

Recommends Carnival Pride? Yes!
