Wonderful, the only way to describe our recent cruise on the Carnival Pride.
Our group of twelve, assigned to different state rooms on different levels, all
experienced the same - - very clean rooms, crisp, clean beds, ample size bath
rooms with showers large enough for those men in the group who were over
six feet in height.

The food was always exceptional. Once on board we had lunch in the ninth level Mermaid dining area. The eight to ten separate buffet lines offered numerous
selections of food items. The Asian buffet had fresh, properly prepared
items, as did the other buffets. All in our group noticed that the food staff
only cooked and prepared small portions when replenishing the lines, keeping the food fresh and served at the correct temperature. Wait staff were always at the lines to
wipe down any spills caused by those who served themselves. The food selection
and preparation at the other on board dining areas was class four or five. a oral
survey of diners in the Normandy dining room indicated a wide selection of menu
items. On one occasion, we were offered escargot as well as mini crab cakes for
dinner appetizers. The Normandy wait staff was always helpful in explaining the
different selections, and providing item recipes when requested.

Very clean rooms, crisp, clean beds, ample size bath
rooms with showers large enough for those men in the group who were over
six feet in height. The room stewards were in two or three times each day to
change the towels, provide new drinking glasses and replenish the ice bucket.
The stewards were very helpful in providing directions to the different ship
areas, or providing extra personal provisions.


The cruise staff provided lots of selections to keep us occupied. We especially enjoyed
the towel folding class (the towel animals in guest rooms), the David’s dining room cooking class and the session on life as a cruise ship member. The Evening entertainment
in the different areas was good, especially the piano player/singer in the Ivory Bar

the dining room staff to be of such quality that we provided additional monetary
compensation to several who went well beyond what was expected.
All areas of the ship were clean and bright. It was noticed that many of the ships
staff were always in the hallways and on the different decks, cleaning or wiping down railing and furniture.

In conclusion we thought that the Carnival Pride offered Sterling quality in room
accommodations, food and staff. Customer service was always a top priority.
Carnival top management should be proud of their staff and crew.
