we have been on the carnival pride before, and we like the size; not too-too big(but still managed to get lost from time to time).
cruise was smooth. even tho waves were high a few times. we had an extended balcony 7199 on deck 7. good central location for going down to dinner on deck 3, up to buffet/lounging on decks 9 and 10.
sat at late dining at table for 8 all new to each other. what a great group; not sure how carnival arranges it, but was real nice. all left as friends, exchanging emails.
nice central location. did have door at side so could be connect to adjacent if wanted. deck 7 a good level. 2 decks up to lido activities, buffet, other eats. walk down 4-5 floors for usual sit-down dinner at normandie restaurant. good size balcony.
