David Junka & Dr. James
a wonderful week we just had on the Carnival Pride! After the last
cruse on a similar ship (Celebrity Millennium), we have regained our
trust in these magnificent larger ships. When we were on the
Millennium last fall, we were jostled around like the SS Minnow! We
never got any questions answered about the instability of the ship and
were told that the terrible rocking and swaying of the ship was due to
it's sail like design! BOO Celebrity Cruise line for a most
uncomfortable trip! I do give the ship extra high ratings for its
beauty, service and food!
Now back to our wonderful experience with the Pride! We left Port
Canaveral on Saturday late afternoon and were just in love with the
theatrical feeling of the interior of this magnificent ship. We were
not at all offended by any of the theatrical accouterments at all,
finding them lending to the get-away feeling that everyone wants when
they work so hard to escape for a cruise! Very exciting entrance!
We arrived in our stateroom to find a very pleasantly decorated room
and an extra roomy bathroom with lots of shelves and places to hang
wet clothes etc. The aqua tiles and countertop were very tasteful. We
emptied our refrigerator into the areas around it and put in our
beverages that we had brought... no restocking charge or complaints
from our efficient cabin steward, Ronaldo.
The Mermaid grill was very nice and ran very efficient. There were
lots of choices for creating a good meal any time of the day and how
nice to have the beverages around during the entire cruise! Bravo to
the chefs! Our table in the dining room was very graciously staffed
and we found the wait staff delightful to talk to. It was unfortunate
that we ate in David's supper club three times as we enjoyed the
antics of the dining room staff.
David's Supper club was very nice except for the extremely rich food!
We were blown away when we ordered the Porterhouse steak and it came
with what looked like a hunting knife! It was quite an experience and
will be remembered fondly!
This ship was so smooth on the water that we hardly could tell the
high winds and rough seas from hurricane Isidore were on our tail. (If
this had been the Millennium, it would have been on her side!) Our
Captain even kept us abreast of all of the changes in the itinerary
and was to be commended on his decisions to alter the course of the
Altogether, I would rate this cruise and this ship as the finest ones
that we have been on and that is usually two cruises a year.
