Carnival Pride Tips

Don't buy the bargain sale watches with metal bands from the gift shop as there are no instructions on how to adjust the band (which are set for people with very large wrists). I was told to bring the watch to a jewelry shop when I get home to have the band adjusted.
a stateroom with a balcony is a must and the cheeseburgers on lido deck were the best with the seasoned fries, the ice cream was a very great hit.
A stateroom with a balcony is always a plus I think,and try their Rueben on Libido deck,one of the best I have had thepleasure to eat
Get to the hot tubs on the first night while you can while everyone is checking out the ship ceause after that they are never free!
Several photo packages available; serenity deck too small; hot tub too small
Ocean stateroom with balcony was great and the food and service at the Steakhouse restaurant was outstanding.
The food was very good and the variety was outstanding. The movies at the pool were great and a nice way to meet people. I especially enjoyed The Beach Boys concert and met some nice ladies there as a result.
I highly recommend a balcony! A great escape from the crowds and a little peace & serenity.
Buffet food/coffee is on Deck 9, so upper decks are definitely preferable; close to mid-ship was good because of access to 7 different elevators.
The beaches are awesome, enjoy! Go to the dining room to eat. Expect a wait if you do open dining - get there 30 minutes early and put your name in

Cruise Reviews

Everything and all employees were pleasant and helpful. Food was great and David's Steakhouse was the best. Wish here was a inside movie theater, so you could watch movies during the day.

I was a bit apprehensive going into the cruise, as the reviews of this ship on were not great, for the most part. However, it seems these reviews were just bad luck-of-the-draw for Carnival. The Pride was no worse and in some respects better than our other cruise experience, RC's Grandeur of the Seas. It is slightly larger than the Grandeur (one more deck and an extra 19 meters in length); the staff were just as friendly on the whole; the common areas are somewhat newer and fancier; the gym is much more extensive, with more equipment and facilities (including a whirlpool tub as well as more and better showers); and the room service is shockingly thorough---they go beyond cosmetics and actually sanitize all of the bathroom surfaces every day. My only criticism (and you will hear this on as well) is that the Normandie dining room (the main, formal restaurant) is simply not up to snuff. I had no problem with the food, but the wait times were too long, and a number of the wait staff just do not seem to be cut out for their particular line of work. The one big plus was manager Alina (from Ukraine), who kindly went out of her way to ask the kitchen to prepare something Dr. Seussy for our brunch, after our son got upset that we slept in and missed the Dr. Seuss breakfast on the last full day of the cruise. We ended up receiving some very attractive French toast encrusted in Fruit Loops cereal. It was a very personalized touch, and it showed me that Carnival pays its staff enough to go out of their way for the customers, to the extent that they can. There were other moments of consideration from Alina and one of the other managers as well, but I won't bore you with the details. On the whole, a good experience.
