  3. Carnival Pride
The Carnival Pride was seemingly decorated by a team of gypsy designers. The hallways are papered in scenes of Venice from the time of the Doges - which is fine - but the rest of the place, including the ceilings, represent a conglomeration of sights from almost anywhere. This should not be the case for a ship that was refurbished in 2014. Nor should the rust all around the doorways and verandahs. The food was excellent, which does not apply to the in-room breakfasts, which are minimal. The prime rib was good; the jerked pork was not. Service in the dining room was excellent. The main problem was sound, especially sound from the theater, which made the whole front of the ship shake. Never, never get a cabin on the 5th level front. The music for the most part sucked, and the music director should be taken out and gently but firmly shot. The poor old tub's mechanics are so loose and out of alignment that even sitting at the dock the whole ship rattles like a flatbed truck going over railroad tracks. We will be careful to never take this ship again. The ship's engineering department pretends that nothing can be done about the cold, cold cabin temperatures.

Not all that much to be proud about
