Ship Facts: Carnival Pride Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Pride Deck Plans
First and Last Carnival Cruise

My husband and I have sailed on 3 Royal Carribean (RC) cruises and this was our first Carnival Cruise. If you are a first time cruiser looking for value, this may be the cruise for you. However, had this been our first cruise, we would not have sailed again. The entertainment was karaoke and lacking in passion and creativity. On RC, we saw first rate singers, a Broadway production and an extraordinary water show. We can't begin to compare the two cruise lines. The Pride will be dry docked at the end of this year and it is badly in need of renovations. The decor is tacky and similar to a 70's Elvis Vegas, the rooms are orange with old TV's, and the ship looks dark and dirty. I would not recommend the cruise for young children. The cruise director was loud and frequently announcing events on the PA system while we were trying to relax on the sun deck. The food at dinner was mediocre and the buffet lacked variety but the lines were long. The tables in the Lido dining area were not cleaned between sittings - make sure you bring hand sanitizer and wipes! One more piece of advice that someone else gave here and proved helpful - take a power strip with you as there is only one outlet by the desk.
