  3. Carnival Pride
We had a great time on our 25th anniversary cruise. We had a balcony stateroom on the 4th deck aft starboard side - very convenient for getting to the 2nd deck where all of the action was. This cruise's schedule was disrupted by Tropical Storm Karl - but Carnival did a good job of keeping us up to date on the changes. Things we really enjoyed: Alchemy Bar - we first saw this on our last cruise and enjoyed it there - and also loved it on the Pride. Very creative martinis and great bartenders. It was popular almost every time we passed it - partly because it is right next to the dining room entrance so people go for a before dinner drink. Chef's Table - this is the first time we have done this and we really enjoyed it. Wonderful food and a great atmosphere with only 12 people. Wine and champagne are included with the dinner. It is pricey at $75 per person but we thought it was worth it. Most of the others that were doing it had done it several times before. Steakhouse - We did this the first night and really enjoyed it as usual. So much food but it is wonderful. If you go the first night of the cruise, it is a free bottle of cheap wine or half price of any wine they have. Trivia Games - we love these, lots of fun as always. Bermuda was nice - though the weather was rainy. We did an all day tour with a non-Carnival supplier - it was very nice and took us all over the island. It was called Hidden Gems of Bermuda. The area around the King's Wharf had quite a bit of shopping as well as a small beach - so if you didn't want to go far that was nice. Overall we had a great time and would highly recommend this cruise.

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin 8E 4215
Great location aft. No problems with the cabin except for a water leak under the sink which Carnival fixed when we told them about it.
