Carnival Pride - Mexican Riviera

Sail Date: June 2005
Destination: Mexican Riviera
Embarkation: Los Angeles

We just returned from the Mexican Riviera on the Pride and wanted to say our 2 cents. We got to the port approximately 12:30 and within one hour we were onboard and in our cabins, the lines were long, but moved along. Maybe I'm naive, but I expect when you are trying to put 2000 people or so onto a ship, there WILL BE lines. Just expect it.

We were impressed with the cleanliness of the ship. The food in the dining room was first rate, and our waiter and assistant were excellent. Comane and Phillip.

One of our favorite parts of cruising are the activities onboard. We do as many as possible, and we felt that there were plenty of offerings to keep us busy. There was a lot of bingo, and art auctions, we choose not to go to those, but have no problem with the fact that they exist.

Our only complaints, and they were few, were with our cabin steward. It took a while for the message that we needed our glasses replaced, and for some reason we didn't get mints on More our pillows the first and last night of the cruise. Maybe that's just the routine. It wasn't that we felt neglected, but it didn't seem that they went that extra mile that so many do. Certainly wasn't a big deal though.

As I read on someone else's review, the picture taking is interminable. We just walked by them many times, which we found wasn't that difficult. But in Puerto Vallarta they had four or five photo ops to race through, the gauntlet got harder to run.

Debarkation was the usual debarkation. We were the next to the last color called, as we had driven to the port. But were in our car and heading home by 10:15.

Over all we had a wonderful time, and feel that cruising is what you make of it. We love it, and try to find the good in every ship we go on. Enjoy. Less
