Best Time Ever!! By: cbbutler3042@gmail.com
The room was very spacious, with a king bed, or 2 twins, a couch, table, vanity/desk, 3 closets, and an adequate bathroom. The balcony was really nice, although we didn't hang out there much. It was really humid. We could also see between the life boats and see part of the water straight down.

Garbage Barge By: gdarland
The cabin was clean and the room attendant was the best we have ever had on any cruise ship before.

Bermuda? By: eyrisheyze
Our cabin was nicely comfortable if that makes sense. There was an occasional musty smell from the shower and the AC didn't always seem cooperative but as always the crew was accommodating and the duvet is a dream. every evening when you come back to the cabin it is spotless and your towel animal greets you .

Great steward, Isaac, and his helpers. Everything was kept clean and they were always around in the evening if you needed something.

Love the Pride! By: casinocowgirl
Our cabin was an extended balcony. I did not find it much bigger than a regular balcony. The room was clean and comfortable and our room attendant took great care of us.

We had a balcony stateroom. There was ample storage space and it was reasonably clean when we arrived. A little dusty on those surfaces that no one notices but me. Our stateroom attendant did a great job. On the last two days of the cruise we had ants on our balcony. Not a colony but enough to make you wonder how they got there.

REPO Cruise Fun By: cdnmr
obstructed balcony. A/C temps were high and low, fan was very loud and would not shut off/down. Noise coming from lifeboats (something rattling in the wind) making balcony enjoyment difficult at times. Smoke could be smelled from deck 3 outside of dining room area (at times, not constant). We slept with door open one night to warm up the cabin and awoke to cigarette smoke. Will spend the extra cash and book a regular balcony, higher up next time.

I loved the Pride! By: dlacher
Our room was perfect for us. The lifeboats are right at floor level so they do not affect the view at all.

Always an Enjoyable Getaway By: SWFLcruiser2
Room was advertised as partially obstructed. That was a laugh as the only obstruction was that you saw the top of a life boat when you looked straight down. The rest of the view was fine.

Cabin E237
Aug 2012
Our cabin (5237) was really nice. We had four people -- managed quite well with space. If you creatively use the under bed storage and keep your space organized and use closet space and cupboard spaces, you can manage quite well.Pull down and sofa bed were comfortable. Linens were nice and you had great control of room temps.Definitely stay with the balcony or better in terms of spacing because it made all the difference in the world to be able to go outside to sit. It was like an extra room in the room.Showers were much better than I expected. Good water flow. Bathroom had lots of nooks and crannies for storage.

The handicapped cabins are quite roomy. Be careful of the "emergencyy pull cord and push buttons. I accidentally set them off twice.

Obstructed balcony really no big deal. You cannot see down but view out to sea is just fine. Good location near elevators and Normandie Dining room.

Great Bahama cruise By: SKeighley
Balcony with an obstructed view but it was great for the cost and you could see out all the time just not down. We had the extra long balcony since next to us was the storage rooms. Plenty if storage space for all our belongings.

A Little Disappointing By: stevensoap
Nice cabin (5155) Clean. Comfortable bed and pillows. Very easy to get to venues. Nice shower. Obstructed view balcony was acceptable for the price. Nice to be able to step outside and my wife is a smoker. Room steward sucked! Better luck to you!

Cabin 5152
Nov 2011
Cabin 5152 - cabin was very clean and comfortable. Ample closet space and drawer space for two people. The bathroom was a nice size for a ship and the shower was very refreshing. Beds were comfortable with clean sheets everyday. Rodney took great care of us. Didn't use the balcony because it was an obstructed view with a life boat hanging there. Still was able to see sunrises and sunsets and enjoy the sunshine and overall weather. They should replace the very old TV's soon. Other than that, one of the nicer cabins I've stayed in on any ship. Hallways were quiet except for occasional outburst of running by kids.

Pride cruise with Irene By: hitnronandjulie
Our cabin #5227 was a 7A obstructed view. The cabin was of good size with more than enough storage. The bathroom well designed with plenty of room. The Balcony does have a life boat at the base, however looking out does have a great view. One little thing, it is time for Carnival to put a newer television in the room.

Avoiding lines! By: Belcorn
Quiet location, small crowded balcony. Partially obstructed view was in between two lifeboats. It would have been better to be in the middle of a lifeboat instead of having the large boom that holds the boat in your view. Still perfectly good for the money. Would definitely get an obstructed view again but I would try in the middle of the boat instead. Bathroom terrific! Shampoo and bodywash dispenser in shower! Shower configured to feel larger. Shaving/make up mirror. Only one usable plug in the room! Bring an extension cord for multiple charging cords. Very good storage.

This was a 7A cat. balcony room. The balcony was small, but we were still able to enjoy it. The room itself was well laid out and had plenty of storage.

Cabin 5184
Dec 2010
We had an "obstructed" view cabin. Basically the lifeboat hung right below the floor of our balcony. Sitting in the chairs outside and looking straight out you could clearly see the water. However, looking down, you saw the boat. No big deal... afterall, how often are you sitting on the balcony? As for the room itself, we had a queen size bed & a sofa type thing. Limited TV stations (out of Denver.. go figure?) Plenty of cabinets, 3 closets, a vanity, filled mini-fridge. We asked to have it emptied so we could use it for drinks we brought with... no problem. Bathroom was a fair size. Just a stand up shower, toilet & vanity/sink. My husband is 6'8 and had no issue standing in the shower. Water pressure was great too! Ohhh and we liked the freebie dish in the bathroom... filled with razors, meds, toothpaste, etc. Came in handy :)

Great Cruise for all of us By: Goofy's mom
cabins 5164 - 5170 were fine. They were clean, a little small but well laid out, and we loved having the balconies even though they were obstructed view. The stewards here were great, couldn't have been better. No complaints at all.

Pleasantly Surprised By: pennst8mom
If you choose a cabin on deck 5 with an obstructed balcony, make sure that you do not have a cabin near the first three lifeboats. These boats are bigger, and would block your view. The lifeboats beyond the first three are level with the balcony floor, and they do not block the view.

Great balcony, very quiet and close enough to the aft elevators to make getting to the Lido and dining room really easy.
