This is our second cruise on the Carnival Pride....we love the ship. The room attendent was great, the entertainment fantastic, the food very good and our room was perfect. The weather cooperated and we couldn't wait to visit Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay and Freeport. My wife Denise wanted to stay in an aft cabin with an extended balcony and the room and view were absolutely fantastic. However, the walk to all the activities wasn't considered when we booked the cruise. Staying aft is great, however, you will lose wait walking everywhere.

The only disappointment with the cruise was the amount of time spent in Grand Turk and Freeport. It was the inagural cruise to these destinations and evidently Carnival didn't plan much time in these ports for their cruisers. It seemed funny we had a whole day on their private island to spend our money and time and had to keep looking at our watches when we were in the other ports.

I definately recommend the Port Canaveral, Nassua, and Freeport cruise over this one. Only because you do spend time at each destination.

The cruise was fantastic and we can't wait to go again.
