Oceanview stateroom with private balcony and twin beds that convert to king. All staterooms have carpeting, ample drawer and closet space, private facilities (shower, basin and toilet), telephone and color television showing first-run films.
Our cabin was spacious, very well maintained, with the exception of some chipped paint on the balcony. The bathroom was larger than expected. When our TV malfunctioned, it was replaced immediately with a new flat screen model. Read entire member review >>
Average, Furnishing showing their age. Safe requires locking with a credit card that you have to carry. Prefer the ones with a 4-digit code. Shower gel and shampoo provided - no hair conditioner (had to purchase a bottle at the gift shop for $10). Room was quiet except for the children aft of us. A family had 4 cabins booked together. Our cabin steward, Andi, was very good - we met him on day 1 but never saw him again. Read entire member review >>
Food was poor and dining room service was sloppy
Sometimes we didn't even receive the food we ordered
Some nights the only entertainment was silly games that only a few could play
At breakfast in the dining room, we were served a basket of bread that had an partially eaten muffin in the bottom
The pool...kids were allowed to put on five life jackets (legs, arms, head, etc) and jump into the pool - hitting other guests and splashing. This went on all day with no intervention by staff
At disembarkation in Baltimore, we were delayed. Didn't get off ship until 1:00. We understand this may have been unavoidable. However, we were placed in common areas with no food or drink and no way to get them. One person traveling with us was diabetic. Many children were hungry and crying. Read entire member review >>
Nice sized room with a balcony to catch the fresh air and terrific views. If any part of the Pride is "outdated", it's the staterooms. They look the same on every ship to me, and it doesn't bother me a bit - just an observation. Last time on the Pride we had an LCD TV and this time we had an older tube TV. No biggie...it just looks older. We rarely turned it on except to check the ships position. No problem with the plumbing or A/C. We had I-Katut as our our steward and he was fantastic!

Room was as expected for a cruise ship. Not big but not small either. Just the right size for my wife and I. It was very clean and the room steward Jay and the rest of the staff did an excellent job. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was great. We loved the balcony. It was real wood and roomy. The bathroom was ample sized and much better with a shower curtail than the last ship we sailed on that had one of those clamb shell showers were if you drop the soap, you had to open the doors. They do need to update the TV sets in the cabins. I mean you could buy flat screen TV's at Target for under $100 at black Friday sales and the TV remote sucked big time. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was not clean when we boarded and we had to request a cleaning. The closets smelled like dirty socks and after the first day all our clothes smelled like dirty socks. The furniture was old and awful from the nauga-hide orange sofa to the rock hard bed and horrendous decor . The cabin attendant kept asking us if we wanted morning or evening service on our room and we kept saying we wanted BOTH like we are used to getting on all the other cruises we have taken. He just could not grasp that concept. Read entire member review >>
I recommend if you can always get a balcony room because it's nice being able to hear the ocean. The thing I did not like about these balcony doors is that they opened out work so if it was windy it was very difficult to open and you could not leave the door open to sit in the room and hear the waves. The cabin had plenty of storage for clothes but only onr plug in thdvroom. There is a washer and dryer on each floor ($3.00 each) and an iron. The shower has shampoo and body wash. The room attendants as always exceptional in there whenever you needed them. And the towel animals get better and better. Read entire member review >>
CABIN: I really really like the size of the cabins compared to Norwegian. PLENTY of closet space you can't even use. I do think Carnival can do a better job in cleaning the rooms...things like the remote controls, the door handles, dusting the tvs, the windows....I've seen dust on those things that makes it apparent that they are not cleaned AT ALL when guests change over....I have to lysol wipe everything before I use it. Our steward Vincent Jones was really awesome though and went the extra mile to put a washcloth in the soap dish in the shower so that we could properly hold our bar site. Read entire member review >>
We had a standard balcony on Deck 7. Plenty of closet space and room for our items. The shower was a good size not uncomfortable and the water pressure was excellent. No noise. Read entire member review >>
Decent closet space, just bring some extra wire hangers for your clothes. Great balcony, no obstructions. Not too much noise from Lido deck above just hearing some chairs move around now and then. Read entire member review >>
6192-great balcony. Near elevators. We did not experience much noise as some others have mentioned from people in halls. There was some mild vibrations when the ship was sailing at a faster speed, my husband thinks from motors, however this was not very disruptive. Read entire member review >>
While our cabin was right off of one of the main stairwell/elevator areas, it wasn't nearly as loud as we expected it might be. The room itself was nice although there were a few times that it got very warm even though the thermostat was turned all the way down. The biggest issue was that the balcony doors aren't sliders, so every time another cabin slammed their door (which isn't hard to do since they're very heavy doors), it reverberated throughout our cabin. It was extremely annoying to say the least. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was great, right in the middle of the ship. There was alittle vibration but nothing that made any of us sick. Our cabin was always clean. My boyfriend called them "cleanning ninja's" because we never saw them but everytime we returned- no matter what time of the day or night- the cabin was clean. The balcony was great, we got the sunset on the way down to FL and the sunrise on the way back. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 5265 was clean with a decent sized bathroom and plenty of closet and drawer space. Hair dryer is located in top dresser drawer and has a limited length cord - you have to hold button in all the time to make the hair dryer work which is sometimes difficult while also trying to style hair. location of cabin was very convenient to stairway leading down to Normandie dining room and only noise problems we had was from a group of young adults down the hall who came in very late and very loud many nights.

Our stateroom was in great shape when we opened the door. The view from our balcony was fantastic! If you were standing on the balcony and looked directly down, there were some pulley-type mechanics that might be a slight eyesore for some, but it didn't bother us. This particular stateroom was set up with the twin beds pushed together for myself and my husband. A couch that did not convert into a bed, and 1 upper located directly over the couch. We loved the couch & upper set up for two reasons - 1) The couch provided us with more area space for us to put our random stuff, and 2) our daughter was over the moon excited about the upper and not once did she have a problem sleeping in it all week.
My only complaint about this stateroom (& apparently others) was that I loathed having the old tube television set - the picture was cruddy at best and I think the remote had seen better days. I think it's time that the Pride update their television sets to the flat screens and some new remotes, but other than this - I had no other complaints about our room. In hindsight if it bothered me enough, I'm certain the staff could have found me a better working remote.
I was concerned about our location being so close to the elevators and any noise that would bring. During the day and early evening hours we could hear kids carrying on here and there, but overall we had no trouble with noise (with the exception of the 2nd to last night - details later) - and I'm a fairly light sleeper.
The other party traveling with us had room 4178. Their room layout was the same as ours except they had the convertible sofa and an upper. One other very small difference was that their balcony didn't have any pulley-type mechanics in their balcony view.
We were all very pleased to have selected staterooms on the 4th floor/middle. We had minimal rocking or swaying unlike areas forward or aft. Read entire member review >>
Nice cabin, centered right in the middle of the ship, one level up was the Lido deck which was home for the buffet and pools. Real close to the elevators. Lots of storage space and very clean. The balcony was alright, but you could only look out straight ahead or to your left due to the right side of the ship jutting out just after our cabin. Read entire member review >>
Standard Carnival balcony cabin in a great location. Right above the dining room, so it is quiet at night, and near the back of the ship so not too much hall traffic either. There is a staircase about 5 cabins back that provides easy access to the exterior promenade one deck below. We noticed vibration at night, but not during the day. Read entire member review >>
Cabin #4171 - Great location! The windows looking down onto the Lobby were directly across from our door. We were near the elevators that take you up to the Mermaid Grill, which was very convenient. There was sufficient closet/storage space. Our balcony was the standard 40 sq ft but was big enough for 2 people to sit comfortably. Our room also had a small sofa and table.
