Carnival Pride Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Sail Date: July 31, 2011
Ship: Carnival Pride
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago
Review SummaryThe Carnival Pride and its staff over all are excellent. A+++!!!!
The only negatives we had were:
1) Art Auctions - instead of trying to guilt trip people into purchasing $15k reprints of art, why not have events during the day that might be more enjoyable.
2) For our 10th anniversary we chose to do the photo shoot. We clearly explained that we wished only a few (less than 5) photos. We were told this was perfectly fine and that there was no committment to purchase. We did not sign up for any shore excursions at Half Moon Cay to accomodate the floating schedule of the photographers. We had a blast during the photo shoot, but then when we reviewed the photos we were informed that the book package was $1500, and the minimum purchase was $300.......we were told we could purchase any number when we signed up...... Both my wife and I felt cheated out of shore excursions that we would have loved to do when we weren't able to purchase ANY of the photos. It frusterated me insanely that they lied to us to gain our trust to do the photo shoot, then wouldn't budge on the minimum purchase - wouldn't it be better to have us buy some instead of none??????
