I haven't been on Carnival Pride, however, I was on Carnival Spirit in January(Belize, Costa Rica and Panama). I loved the ship and had a great time. I heard about the problems with the Hawaii trip (which I believe happened before my trip). It is unfortunate that these things happen, however, I was told Carnival served free drinks and the passangers were compensated for their inconvenience. I would recommend Carnival to anyone!
I have also cruised on the Destiny and Victory, and I am looking forward to my next Carnival vacation on the Legend in January!
