I cross posted this in Carnival and Princess chat rooms...

My girlfriend and I are planning to take a Mexican Riviera cruise in January 2005 and are trying to decide between the Diamond Princess and the Carnival Pride. She's 21 and I'm 27 and we really don't do much partying. We'd be booking an interior room.

She's been on a ton of cruises (mostly on Carnvial or RC) and I've been on one 3 day on RC Monarch of the Seas last March.

I've read a lot of reviews and I think I'd like to try the Diamond Princess even though it is about $75 more expensive. She is pretty ambivalent.

Any suggestions from someone who has been on one or the other or both?

Thanks,
Chris

If there is only a $75 difference and you are not serious partiers, then definitely go on the Diamond Princess! (IMHO)

I would not take the Pride, that ship rocks and sways and you feel the noise from the engine in your cabin and in the dining room.

Just returned from the Diamond. It is a great ship. Very quiet and smooth. Most of the time it did not seem as if the ship was moving. The cruise to me was very laid back. It is not as lively as a Carnival cruise. There is a wide range of entertainment, and a lot of quiet places on the ship to escape to. The ship is big but it is not crowded. The only time you feel the crowd is in the theater. There was a representation of every age group but the majority of the passengers were over 40.

I am working on a review. It should be done before you go.
