We went on the Pride, late June 2006. The ship was sold out. Literally. So, for whatever this is worth to anyone, we pretty much did not face any nasty long lines in the buffet area or tendering in Cabo San Lucas. The only lines I found annoying on the entire trip was the Pursars Desk (or wherever you put money on your Sign and Sail Card. But I went back really late or really early and solved that problem. We didn't have a hard time getting off on land ports either. Oh, I will say that the muster drill was annoying. A pain in the neck. You're standing out there like sardines in a can for a good 20 minutes. Necessary, but annoying. I saw another post on Cruise Chat where someone recommended getting out on deck first, so you could lean against the wall. Good idea.

Last thing, although the ship was filled to capacity we never felt crowded on board.

fivepoints,

That was very well put. I have been on Pride when not only sold out, but every berth was sold during spring break, plus cabins with roll-aways.

The ship is so well laid out the only time there was a considerable line was the Muster Drill. I am always just glad to get it over with. It is much easier now-a-days as you can go directly to your Muster Station, they use to make everyone meet at a lounge, give a talk, and then go to the boats.
