Ship Facts: Carnival Pride Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Pride Deck Plans
Disappointed for the $$$$$
My last cruise on Princess was over 10 years ago; but I remember highlights such as fun ship activities as well as great food - no matter if you were eating at the buffet or the dining room. I was happy with the embarkation and debarkation process at the Baltimore, MD port although I'm not sure how one of our suitcases got completely destroyed. Customer service gave us a modest ship credit to fix that situation. And Carinval did a good job at keeping us updated on Hurricane Irene.
 
The room steward was great and most of the service was okay; it was REALLY hard to get an additional cup of coffee at breakfast. Our family was happy with the ports as we had never been to them before; Cocoa Beach was beautiful (Cocoa Beach Village not worth it), Atlantis in Nassau was beautiful (definately do your research on how to get access to their AquaPark and not having to pay a RIDICULOUS amount of money for it!) and we did a dolphin encounter in Freeport.

What was most disappointing is the quality of the food. The best thing to eat at the buffet was the hot dog (seriously). And not the bun, either. And the dining room was hit or miss also. Other passengers RAVED about David's - a restaurant on board. I refused to pay an additional $30 a person for a decent meal. And there were gorgeous fruit cups at the cafe...of course, for an additional fee.

Not sure what happened in our room - the bed was increadibly uncomfortable and there didn't seem to be anything that could be done to fix it...so not getting any rest on this much awaited vacation was deeply disappointing. I definately would not book with this cruise line anymore. Or at the very least, not the Pride.
