Ship Facts: Carnival Pride Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Pride Deck Plans
First Cruise - No Wow Factor but Enjoyable
This was my first cruise and have to say that I was skeptical going in and did not know what to expect. The Carnival Pride seems like a big ship when you board but you really quickly that it really is not that big.

The first disappointment - the food

We ate at the buffet for lunch and dining room for dinner. With the exception of one or two meals, the food at the buffet was better than the dining room and that is not saying much. Order red snapper for dinner one night and it was sooo dry that I could not even eat it. Others in my party ordered steak and never got the right level of cooking. The buffets are pretty standard every day with very few changes. For the most part, the food was bland and not very flavorful.

The second disappointment - the pools

The main pools are on the ledo deck. There are two and they are the size of a large hot tub and full of saltwater. The saltwater burns your eyes and you have to continuously avoid others.

The third disappointment - the shows

In addition to being corny and just not good, they were also way to risque to be open to all audiences. There were at least five times during the one show where I cringed to have my kids in the room and sitting next to my in-laws.
