Great Cruise ~ Better Than Expected

Sail Date: December 01, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

Overall the staff worked very hard to keep the ship clean\, although she's showing her age in areas. Some cabins have been updated\, some not. Our cabin was fantastic\, mid-ship #7299. My daughters cabin\, aft #7351 was very dated and the minimal balcony was always dirty. Her cabin steward was actually better than ours but there's only so much they can do with worn out cabins. The crowds were minimal and sometimes we felt like the only people on the ship\, we sailed with 500 less people than capacity. It showed in the dining room & we loved the extra attention & time the staff took with us. Service was the best we've ever had on any ship! We refuse to sail on RCL because of repeated poor service. The new 2.0 upgrades are fantastic! Skip the theater shows\, very karaoke\, but stay up for comedy club shows. As always the ports were the highlight of our trip! Word of advice\, carry your luggage off in Tampa! They're not as organized as Port Canaveral and it will take forever to get your luggage. Overall\, we are looking forward to sailing on the Pride again before she leaves in March back to Baltimore. Great value for the price! Thank you Carnival!
