Great Cruise

Sail Date: June 01, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Balcony

The ship atmosphere was great. The decor was enlightening it created topics for discussion but I did not like or dislike the decor just interesting. But the ship itself was very relaxaing and warm feeling. The cruise is what you make of it if you go to relax and have fun you will. If you come with your noise in the air you might not enjoy it. But wonderful cruise and people. Shout out goes to John our lead waiter he was very friendly and attentive.

Pros: Relaxation

Cons: The orbitz excursion in Nassau and Paradise Island

Recommends Carnival Pride? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
ate in the dinning room every night it was fine. However, breakfast on the Lido, buffets are not my thing because with that many people coming and going food seasoning is not that great and the quality is good not bad.
Service and Staff
Ship staff was great w/one small exception to the rule. We were trying to set a wake up call on the telephone and it appeared to not be working so I contacted guest services and the young lady that answer the phone was not the friendliest person. She needs customer service training. All I wanted was a wake up call, got a rude awakening.
Comedy shows, Carnival Pride Dancers all the entertainment staff was great. I did not find all the comedians funny but others did, but they were fine.
Cabin / Stateroom
had room 8146 great size. Balcony was great. Decor and TV needs updating but overall not a bad room at all. Bathroom was a nice size also. They supplied you with plenty of soap and shampoo and razors if you forgot yours. Great stewart also. Shout out to Vance and his crew. Loved the towel animals.
Port Canaveral, Florida
We love Disney. Take an excursion when you get to this port because otherwise you will be sitting on the boat another day. We took the Magic Kingdom excursion thru carnival. Great Excursion otherwise they say taxi to disney is 175.00 one way.
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
This is a just relax stop, take a taxi and go to the beach or a little while. Not much to see or do in Freeport
Nassau, Bahamas
Love Nassau, stroll thru the straw markets, but be warn the market place can be intimidating. And try the conch fritters at the little shop inside the main terminal port once you dock. Excellent.
