Carnival Pride Cruise Review by fair28
- Sail Date: January 2012
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Ocean View
The food was good and quality of the dining room service was mostly wonderful. Our only issue was the our primary waiter seemed a little distracted most of the time. My wife is picky about how she likes her food and he got it wrong once. Our waiter (Jose was his name) shared the duty with two other servers and they got everything right and were very friendly. This seemed to counteract the issue we had with our primary waiter. This was really the only issue we had and to us, it wasn't a huge issue, overall, the food and the service were great.
The meals and snacks in the self-service dining room were great also. Variety and quality overall were good. My only complaint about this dining room is that it's hard to find a table and certain times of the day.
Entertainment was great, we participated in a game show (similar to the newlywed game) and that was a lot of fun.
Our cabin steward was a ninja, he could clean the room so fast we never even noticed he was there. The towel animals were amazing, I give these guys a lot of credit for these. Our steward also took the time to learn the names of every one of his guests and called me by my name when we saw me. I think this is nice touch to take the time to learn the names of the individuals he's taking care of.
The cabin was nice. This was an ocean view cabin on the lowest deck. We booked rather late, so this was the only option. Not a problem though, the layout and size were the same as the balcony room we had the last time. My wife got a great view of the pilot boat from out window when we left Freeport, it was inches from the window!
Overall, I'd recommend this cruise for couples or for families, plenty to do for all. We plan on going again next year around the same time and hopefully bringing a large group of family and friends with us!
Port & Shore Excursion Reviews
FreeportThere is less to do at this port. Again we just did a little shopping at the shops just off the dock. The day we were there, there were high winds and several of the excursions were cancelled. One of the couples we shared our dinner table with had a fishing excursion booked and that ended up being cancelled.View All 1,232 Freeport Cruise Port Reviews

NassauWe've been to Nassau before. Lots of shopping available, lots of other excursions. We did a little shopping. This was fun, but, we've done this all before. Since it was just the two of us, we didn't do any of the excursions, though there are plenty available.View All 5,279 Nassau Cruise Port Reviews

Port Canaveral (Orlando)This port has plenty of options if you don't mind a little travel. The Disney parks, Universal Studios, NASA, and Cocoa beach are great places, but, we've been to all of those, so this time, we just hung out on board. For people who haven't been to those attractions, they're all available, for a price. As with most cruise line excursions the price is a little high.View All 1,860 Port Canaveral (Orlando) Cruise Port Reviews
