Carnival outdid itself again!Our family of 3 had previously sailed on the Pride last May and recommended it to our family.So,on this trip,we had a large group traveling together,3 families and 3 different types of cabins. Ours was an extended balcony, the other two were an oceanview and an inside cabin. I have to say, ours was the best. The only problem we found with the balcony cabin was that the "neighbors"rudely slammed the balcony door at all hours.We could also hear the slamming coming from above and below us because we were on the 7th deck with cabins above and below us.The door is extremely heavy and must be held onto to close it quietly. No other complaints to speak of.
We were blessed with beautiful weather and calm seas. The staff was excellent, food was incredible, and the entertainment very enjoyable.We enjoyed all 3 of the ports of call too. There was lots to do for the variety of different age groups in our traveling party. The kids loved Camp Carnival(teens too),the adults enjoyed Serenity, the spa, and I have to say, we all got a kick out of the adult comedy shows several of the nights that we were onboard.The ship has been drydocked and refurbished since we traveled last May. It was clean, well maintained in all areas,and the new pool tile looks fantastic.The Pride is highly recommended by our entire traveling party, we are thinking about doing it again next year!
