Ship Facts: Carnival Pride Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Pride Deck Plans
Carnival Pride - USA

WOW! We went for our honeymoon, it was our 1st cruise, but it was fun. The ship always had stuff to do, the people were super nice, and we made lots of new friends. Normandie's Restaurant was horrible towards us so we never ate there again. Mermaid's grille is the best with lots of variety. The rooms were always neat, they seem to know when we weren't in our room. We were left with a monkey, elephant and dinosaur made from towels.

The Beauties dance club was lots of fun with music for all ages 18 and over. The bartenders knew what we wanted and brought it to us before we had to order. Everyone was super besides the Normandies restaurant. Puerto Vallarta was very dirty not what I expected, but they have very good tours I did the dolphin swim which was absolute fab. We swam for over an hour in a 15 foot tank, and rode on the dolphin, they kiss you for pictures, and you can purchase the entire video. Also the Tequila factory is a must if you like alcohol. We got 6 bottles. They bargain a lot so the price they offer is not the only price they are willing to take. They said on their site that they offer free cake and other items for honeymooners but once we got on the boat they were like who cares. NOTHING IS FREE you gotta pay for anything you want.

The most shocking things to me was all the people on board is from other countries, they had maybe 2 Americans and that was it. They have wonderful shows and activities to keep you busy because really majority of your trip is on the boat so you better make sure it is a fun one. They put a newspaper in your room every night telling you what will be going on the next day. And a balcony room is a must have it is so gorgeous to have it when you want to just relax.

Dining Normandies is horrible but Mermaids is a 6 with lots of options. Embarking takes a long time, but you are so excited you don't realize your waiting for a few hours. The restrooms were always neat. The shore excursions weren't totally what they said it was, but in your room they show the video for all the excursions watch that which is much more what will actually occur.
