Sorry ya'll, but a random question for you:

Does anyone know the general costs of the arcade games? Do they require quarters/dollars or tokens?

I know the kids are going to want to play the arcade games but if we're talking $1 or $2 for one play, I may have to steer them in a different direction.

Thanks again!

They're usually priced from $1-$2 a play. I've seen ships that use tokens, but mainly I've seen the sail n sign cards. Not for sure on the Pride, hopefully one of our Carnival experts will know for sure.

Also while I'm thinking about this - does anyone know on the Pride specifically if the in room TVs have DVD players? I'm wondering whether or not it would be worth bringing a couple DVDs.

Also, on that same point - does anyone know if they have that large outdoor projection screen for the movies on deck? I can't recall what they actually dubbed that activity. But on someones Capers they posted, it appeared they were playing Twilight that night.

Thanks again - and thanks Penny for the insight. I figure they'll probably charge the typical over inflated amount that most arcades in general automagically charge.

It has been a few years but at the time we needed arcade tokens aboard the Pride. They may have transitioned to using the cards by now, but I'm not sure.

I am fairly certain that only the suites have DVD players. You can buy pay-per-view movies on the TVs in all cabins on the Pride.

I know some of the Carnival ships have added the Movies Under the Stars (Princess's name for the big screens). Since the Pride is pretty new, she may have it. It's really pretty neat watching a movie at night while you're sailing. The Sea Princess was the first ship that we experienced the MUTS. Of course, I got cold, but it was really beautiful. I think I watched the stars more than the movie.

The Pride doesn't have the Seaside Theater. Here is more info on which ships have it, and which ones will be getting it.

One thing you may want to note and instruct your children is "No pay for view TV!" That is, unless you don't mind the bill. Pay for view movies $8.99 and $13.99 adult movies.

Agreed about the "no no" on the pay per view movies as they can get expensive fast. Hehe

But I'm somewhat depressed about the zilch on Pride having the Seaside Theater.

Don't be. They will have plenty of other activities. Club 02 which should be showing some DVD's, Miniature golf, Volley ball, Basket ball, shuffle board, ping pong, jogging track, and Water Wars.
