7 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)

Ship: Carnival Pride
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 1190
Traveled As: Family (older children)

This cruise was boring.  Not enough music around the ship.  One deck party was fun, but the rest of the evenings were drive-in movies on deck.  No dancing before dinner.  The Red Frog Pub was not danceable.  The second pool was constantly dirty, food dishes not cleaned up in a timely manner, ashtrays full, etc. The entertainment was redundant.  The same singers and dancers did all the shows.  Not even a juggler or other entertainers.  Upon disembarking, one passenger showed me bug bites on her arms that she said she got from the cabin.  In general, when speaking to others on the cruise, they were disappointed in the lack of energy and excitement, as were we.  If you are a gambler, this is a good ship.  The casino is large, but very smokey.  I would not recommend the Pride for people looking to party.
