The home port of the Pride is now Tampa. Embarkation and dis-embarkation are very easy. While the ship is older, the architectural details are just fabulous. Our cruise was 70% capacity (1500 passengers) and that was really nice. No lines or struggles to find a lounger. We spent most of our time on the Serenity deck and the staff does instruct anybody with children to leave. Maribel and Ganesh are great servers in the Serenity area. The food was quality all around. We dined at the steakhouse, MDR, pizza pirate, seafood corner and bonsai sushi. Surprisingly, one part is chopsticks for lunch and then the seafood corner for dinner. They will build you a seafood tower if you ask. The showstoppahs band was outstanding. Catch them before the lead singer retires. He can sing anything. All of the crew was so happy to see us. Frankie the cruise director was OK but we've had better. The violin trio added an elegant touch. They played the theme songs to Game of Thrones and Skyfall. The fitness center was the nicest I've seen on a ship. Overall we can't wait to go on another cruise on the Pride. It is outstanding value for you money. Carnival is all about fun and I want fun on vacation.

We had an obstructed view cabin, at interior rate. It was so much fun. We couldn’t have done a 7 day land vacation for what it cost on the ship.

There were 12 of us on the cruise. 6 were teenagers. The staff was wonderful. They kept us entertained all the time. Plenty for the kids to do. I can't say enough good things about the housekeeping staff. They were awesome. We had a family that is gluten free and the dining staff kept right on top of that. It was a great cruise and hopefully the first of many.

I recently put a deposit down on a cruise to the Caribbean,, I called to cancel my reservation with plenty of notice. They absolutely REFUSED to refund me my money. Carnival does not stand behind there customers. I have cruised with Carnival for over 15 years, but after being treated rudely on the phone thats it.....goodbye Carnival.... My advice to cruising...dont go Carnival!!!!
