This was an absolutely wonderful cruise aboard the Carnival Pride.  The cabin stewards were efficient and neat, knew our names by the end of the first day.  We dressed up and attended dinner in the formal dining room every night, for the 6:00 seating.  The food was excellent, and there were plenty of vegetarian choices for me.  Our dining room wait staff were also fast and efficient, but we never felt rushed at dinner.  Our wine steward was very attentive, but not pushy.  Everyone in the dining room greeted us like family when we arrived for dinner.  The shows and entertainment onboard were excellent, especially the three comedians we heard perform.  The activities offered suited everyone in our group, which varied in age from 12 to almost 60.  My son had great fun at the onboard Ping Pong tournament!  He also enjoyed the Arcade, and some members of our group spent time in the Casino.  The pools were nice, especially the adult Serenity area, and the wait staff were attentive.  Three of our party took advantage of a Spa mini package, which was value-priced and absolutely wonderful!  We felt relaxed and pampered.  Our three days in port were extremely enjoyable, and we participated in a variety of wonderful excursions.  The whole cruise experience was fabulous, and it was one of the best we've been on!

This was an excellent day, very good value! In Freeport, we did a bus ride to the Garden of the Groves Botanical gardens, and shopping.
