Room Type: Oceanview

We had a great cruise on the Carnival Pride. We thoroughly enjoyed the comedy acts onboard. We hung out at Margaritaville in Grand Turk, splashed in the beautiful water at Half Moon Cay and went to the Taino Beach Club Shore Excursion in Freeport. Loved all of the ports. The staff on the cruise ship were top rate. It was sparking clean and the food was good, not great or exceptional, but good. The only deficit we found was the music onboard. The four piece band that backed up the shows were definitely the best on the ship. The backed up the karaoke singers in several karaoke sessions. The two guitar/vocalists were poor. The 4 piece band in the lounge tried their best but something just didn't meld, like they were four people just thrown together to make a band and the piano player in the piano bar was so-so,. The best dancing music was by the two dj's on the deck.

At the Normandie restaurant, the line was short for breakfast and the service was quick. The quality of the breakfast food was much better than on the Lido Deck.
