Ship Facts: Carnival Pride Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Pride Deck Plans
Carnival Pride - Mexican Riviera
This cruise was our 8th cruise with Carnival. We had originally booked

a Western Caribbean, but changed the booking to the Mexican Riviera to cruise with our favorite cruise director. We flew into LAX the day before the cruise and checked into the Hotel Queen Mary, which is next

to the Carnvial Long Beach Port. We found the Queen Mary to be very interesting and enjoyed walking around her decks. As we were checking

out the next morning, we were told by a bellman that the Pride was not making it into port that day. After talking with Carnival, we secured

a room for another night on the Queen Mary.

Our cruise was now going to be a 6 night leaving out of the Los Angeles Port. The Pride experienced propulsion problems coming back from the previous cruise. Our fustration was not getting correct and prompt information from Carnival. Every Carnival representative we spoke to

gave us different info on embarkation the next day, reinbursement, and compensation. We were bussed (by Carnival) to the Los Angeles Port and

went through the embarkation process all by 2:30pm on Monday Feb 5th.

We immediately noticed that the ship was elegant and very beautiful.

It has a Renaissance period theme throughout the ship. The ship is

clean and has artwork everywhere. Our cabin a cat 8A was a balcony

with plenty of room.

We found the Pride to have excellent service in all areas. The dining room

servers were the best we have ever had. They knew the menu and made great

recommendations. Our cabin stewards gave such immaculate service that

we never had to ask for anything. The shows were very good and enjoyable.

We also enjoyed the music on the ship from various bars and areas. I tried

the salon for the first time, having my hair done for formal night. James

did a great job giving me a special look.

Our two ports, Mazatlan and Cabo San Lucas were both dissappointing.

We went to Stone Island in Mazatlan and were hounded by peddlers.

Even after telling several "no", one after another tried to sell us

various items. To see the beach, we had to look through all the peddlers.

We just walked around Cabo at the marina and were bothered by peddlers.

We returned to the ship and soaked in the spa hot tub.

We found the Mexician Riviera to be very different than the Caribbean.

We loved the Pride and hope to sail on her again someday if she ever

sails the Caribbean.
