Wonderful Trip: Carnival Pride Cruise Review by waltersship

We had to wait about 2 1/2 hours to board but that is not really bad. once on board the hallways were closed so people were waiting in the stairwells to get to there rooms I think this is due to the FTTF pass you can buy that guarantees your room ready upon boarding.. the workers have to bounce around the ship getting these rooms ready instead of cleaning them in a More orderly fashion .But we were in our room in about 1 hour after boarding. The buffets were good I don't think anything is open 24 hours anymore they have cut back on "always ready foods" there were times when it seemed everything was closed, except room service and one day we waited 1/2 hour after the breakfast was supposed to be delivered never to get it. The staff is really over worked and now that there is automatic tips charged to your account I think they are not as worried about getting every detail finished.( ice in room)
Only went to the dining room 2 times we had 8:00 late dinner and didn't get out till 9:30 too late for us to get out of dinner so we ate earlier at the buffets. We went to 4 comedy shows and 3 broad way shows and all of these were Great . We would have missed all of these if we went to dinner at 8:00
I guess you should put the room service trays outside your doors now because the room cleaning staff only changes the towels and make the beds , they left our trays sitting on the table and dirty cups on the desk so after the second day I kept everything cleaned up and we didn't order anymore room service. Also they DO NOT put ice in your room unless you ask ,so on the first day you will have to wait awhile for ice. It is best to go up top and get a drink if you want something cold.
We walked to the beach Nassau , just go toward senor Frogs and keep following the side walk around the buildings and the free beach is about a 10 min walk away. nothing to walk too at Freeport, just port shops. Less
Cabin review: 4197
Very nice and a lot of room , when the door is open the air conditioner shuts off. there is a half glass wall outside the doors with a rail you can rest your arms on .There is no access to outside but you can get fresh air and see the ocean.
Not all that much to be proud ...
Great time aboard the Pride!
