Review summary

My 4th Carnival cruise, our family's second. We had a GREAT time!! Our room steward, Jessica, was COURTEOUS, EXTREMELY FRIENDLY, and so VERY WELCOMING!!!! We slept late almost every day, and she still made it to our room even though it was so late in the morning. Jessica and her team were ALWAYS smiling and so very friendly every time we saw them. Jessica and her team worked hard to make sure our needs were met. Well done Jessica, we appreciate you and the amazing work you do!!!!  

Our dinner crew, Joebert, Teguh, and Orlando were FUN, ENTERTAINING, and COURTEOUS every single night!!!! They worked hard at making dinner fun and relaxing! Their service was exceptional and the food was perfect every night. Well done, we appreciate their hard work!!!!!

Saffy, our Cruise director was ENTERTAINING, ENGAGING, and ENTHUSIASTIC, which kept the fun going!!! We appreciate her hard work to keep the atmosphere fun and enjoyable!!!

While I didn't get the  names of any other crew on the ship, they all did amazing, and I wish I would have made a note of more of their names. From the towel stand by the pool, to the staff at Lido deck, to the bar tenders, every time I saw a crew member they were friendly and polite. I appreciate each and every one!!

The only thing I would change would be the smoking areas on the boat. The only kid-friendly hot tub was at the pool where smoking was allowed. Which meant that any time we wanted to enjoy the hot tub, we had to be surrounded by second hand smoke. If that smoking area stays as it is, I will not choose to sail on the Pride again. I will choose to sail on a boat that doesn't have a smoking section by the only hot tub my daughter can enjoy.

Cabin / Stateroom

Cabin was great! A/c wasn't as cold as I like it, but we brought fans so they kept me cool :) Jessica, our room steward, was EXCEPTIONAL!!!! Thank you Jessica and your team for amazing work!!!!

Ship tip

Bring a small fan for your room. It's handy in case you don't think the room is cool enough, or to block out any noise from adjoining rooms. But bring an extra extension cord, there are limited outlets in the cabin. Bring reusable water bottles for water!
