Good first cruise, with some drawbacks
Carnival Pride Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Review SummaryClean ship, well laid out. Easy boarding, easy disembarking. Usually not too difficult to find a chair on one of the upper decks. Food was better than we expected. Destinations were mixed (snorkeling in Grand Turk was awesome, but there's literally nothing to do in Freeport). Bring earplugs so you don't get waken up by your "cruise director" aka saleswoman in chief. Pricey drinks, but that's to be expected on any cruise. Awesome prices on duty-free liquor and some of the apparel, massive markups on everything else...

Pros: Good layout, good food, fantastic servers.
Cons: Way way way pushy salespeople you cant escape. On the PA system every hour. Smells.
