Prides last trip, to Mexico that is!
Destination: Mexican Riviera
Embarkation: Los Angeles
Meals- breakfast staff was sort of rude to us, to the point where my wife complained, then things got a bit better. I hate to ask for OJ 3 times in one meal and never get it. Lunch staff was no better, so More we just ate lunch on deck or in ports. Supper staff could not have been better, singing and dancing and always smiling. Pizza, burgers and buffets where good, loved the fresh fruit.
Activities- lots of Bingo,but it costs money to play, shows where out of this world, loved the comedians and music was great. we did play a few audience games and had lots of fun.
Davids Club- we loved everything about this experience and were very glad we booked two nights. service is outstanding if not a bit stifling but the food was 100% point on. we were very surprised at the chefs coming to your table and even special desserts, worth every penny bar none.
excursions are very expensive but we had the times of our life on MOST of them. the shopping excursion was nothing but jewelry shops but a very kewl lunch after at Playa de Mazatlan. Swam with the dolphins was worth it, but the cost of the photos will make you choke, and they don't give enough time to eat after, you must be very quick. Sea Treks is a must for anyone, very kewl fish and the people who run it are very nice.
disembark was a breeze, we had a very leisurely breakfast then sat in the forward hall until we where told to get off. total wait about 1/2 hour, and we where the last numbers to be called. we even had the comedian come on for a short while to entertain us while we waited.
ship was a bit dirty, garbage did not get picked up and a few of the statues where nothing but garbage pits, but we still loved it. Overall not a bad cruise but we will try another line for our next trip. Pride is a good party boat if thats what you are in to, but if you are looking to be super pampered you might look elsewhere.

Cabin review: 6a1253
First floor outside cabin, lots of room for 3 people, nice bathroom with a warm shower. beds where comfortable and we could not hear anyone anywhere, very quiet. Bad thing is only one plug in, had to charge camera seperatly, that sucks.
