Awesome cruise

Sail Date: July 31, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We were extremely impressed with how the staff was. Super friendly and make a few friends in a short time. The dining food was really good and plentiful. You were allowed to order anything and everything you wanted to, including multiple entries if desired. The buffet food was good and selection was plentiful. The entertainment was a little below par as far as quality, but entertaining nevertheless.

Pros: Service, food selection, price

Cons: buffet food quality a little below par but acceptable

Recommends Carnival Pride? Yes!

Entertainment was a little lacking, but there were many different things to do so it's not like you were sitting around doing nothing.
Ship Quality
Decor of ship was a little questionable. There were alot of kids on the ship and alot of paintings of naked women. Nothing that was "tasteless" as it is art, but still there were too many of these paintings around for the younger crowds to see.
Food and Dining
Dining food was very good, buffet food was a step below as can be expected., Burgers and Pizza were great. If you take this cruise, you must book a night at David's Steakhouse, you won't be disappointed, Well worth the extra $30 per person!
Cabin / Stateroom
.Room was always clean and stocked. Looked forward to coming back from dinner to see which "towel animal" was left on the bed for us!
Service and Staff
There is not a rating high enough to give for the way we were treated.
Grand Turk Island
Must see - great beach and swim up bar in Margaritaville! Great for shopping
Don't Miss: Swim up bar
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
This is an excursion type island - some small shops....
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
Absolutely great experience. The best beach and ocean water I have ever seen! This is like going to a resort with great excursions!
Don't Miss: White sandy beach and sandy beach like floors in the ocean, incredible!
