I was great! One thing I found interesting was how "the ship can turn on dime", so to speak. It just pivots in place! And, we watched from our balcony as the Pride---ever go gently---settled against the pier. Amazing how the capt. could "park" such a huge vessel so carefully and precisely.

Sounds like fun. We would like to make the Caribbean our next destination. We saw those "police escort boats." Even here in Los Angeles, we were escorted in and out. Speaking of police, another odd sighting: In Mexico there are full out military guards (with VERY BIG rifles) there to greet the ship. They were present and close proximinity to the docks the entire time we were there. FELT GREAT having them there, even though there was no hint of trouble! I felt safer on shore there than I do in Los Angeles everyday! We saw them everywhere we went. Even a small town about 50 miles away. (We were there on a shore excursion). They were always friendly and took pictures with my daughters!

Sorry, J. about the "stick out tongue" character. I thought it just smiled! Oh, man. Beg your pardon!

That would be a starboard side extended balcony right? I am booked for this cruise on Oct 1st and have a GTY 8I extended balcony....(hoping for an upgrade, but it's not looking good.) Am wondering if I should have just booked the starboard side cabin I wanted. Looking at the route, it appeared the best scenery would be from Starboard when arriving into ports.
Been on the Pride before in the Caribbean...Very nice ship.

Have to be honest with you. I don't know one side -by name-from the other! :-) But...If you were standing facing the front of the ship...we were on the right side, near the front. We could stand on our balcony and look up into the part of the ship where the captain and the navigators operate. And our balcony did stick out beyond the life boats so we could see from the front clear to the back. It was cool.

Yes that would be starboard....an easy way to remember the difference is that PORT side and LEFT both are 4 letter words. By the way, did you happen to notice what the beverage choices were in the buffet area? Carnival cruises in the past have had punch which my hubby likes mixed with "The Captain" (Morgan),but one of our cruises didn't and I was hoping that that was not a new trend.
