Well, now, Dwayne, how are you going to pass the time? Let me guess, that horrible 4 letter word "work" I'd like to do a huge garage sale, but we're so far away from civilization I don't think it would work. Maybe eBay?

Yeppers, work it will be the next 3 months. I love the garage sale idea! I could have an entire section of used computer stuff, and souvenir DOD glasses. They won't let me do that here, so Ebay is looking like a possibility.

AVandrie, try this link for cruise web cams. Some of them work, and some don't.

Instead of starting a new thread, I thought I'd see if you guys could answer this:

In my scavaging for pictures I found an album of someone's trip on the Pride back in 2007. They had a picture of the waterslide but in their caption it said that the waterslide was closed indefinitely. Can anyone confirm or deny whether it's functioning now in 2009? Also, they said that the roof above one of the pools on the pride wouldn't close - has that been fixed?? We didn't chose the boat that is falling apart did we? I would think these have been repairs made long since this album was made in 2007, but you know what they say about assuming.

The water slide on the beautiful Carnival Pride is only open at certain times during the day. It is fully functional. They rarely if ever close the retractable "roof" on East Coast south bound cruises. They don't close it just for rain, it is built in for cold weather cruises.

I can assure you that you didn't pick a "boat" that is falling apart. You actually picked the "Pride" of the fleet in my opinion.

Read my "blurb" here about the ship.

And just a note, most people do not take time to write positive reviews. I haven't quite figured this out, but it seems they only like to post rants. Maybe they think it gets back at the cruise line. Something might have gone wrong and they have decided that the were "entitled" to a full refund or another cruise in the presidential suite. Anyway, they want to vent. They have times when ammenities are open and closed. Their shops are only open when you're at sea, and only during certain times. As well as other venues on board. This is due to staffing and coordinating events. So if the slide was closed "indefinitely" it might have been due to weather on the cruise or something needed to be replaced for safety and until they got the part or got somewhere they could fix the problem, they closed it off. Please don't take what is written as the gospel. If you go with an open mind, it will make the experience so much better.

Being a first timer I have got to get better at using the appropriate cruise ship vocab (and to stop calling it a boat).

Thank you all for being so passionate about the Pride - it makes me feel good that I'm not on "the boat that's falling apart". I'm a bit embarrassed by saying that earlier. Where is the blushing smiley when you need it?

I agree that it is a shame that more people are leaving trip reviews that are negative versus positive.

Thanks again!!

Don't worry about reviews. Its just a opinion from somebody else. Your cruise will not be like their cruise. Different people different strokes, not everybody likes the same things. Some people will never be happy. You need to experience it for yourself. You can find everything you need somewhere on the net. Have a great cruise. You are what makes or breaks a fun cruise.

AVandrie,it's now under 250 days, see I told you it'll go fast. Mine started out at over 500 days, but it's under 200 now. At the same time, next year's is counting down, too. I just wish they were for a month instead of a week. The longest one I was on was 21 days, even that one went way too quickly.

I have 6 months to lose enough weight so that I am 10 lbs LESS than what I want to be before I leave.... so when I get back, I'll be just right
