Not a good experience

Sail Date: July 31, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Oceanview

1. The ship dining area (Mermaid Grill) and pool area were too small to accommodate number of passengers; waited in line constantly for meals and could not pass through common areas in dining area easily because of lines. As well, on sunny days, could not only NOT find a spot on deck for chair, but often could not find a spot in pool and if I did, could not move in it.
2. While staff who attended to rooms and dining (in Normandie) were friendly and helpful, the amenities staff were most definitely NOT. I was more than 3 times greeted with poor customer service and what seemed to be a lack of caring for my concern (once at pool towel station; twice at customer service desk).

Pros: Very little

Cons: The staff was not friendly; ship was too small to accommodate number of guests

Recommends Carnival Pride? No.

The wait to and from ship on "tender" was bad enough to impact the entire experience.
