My husband and I just returned from the 11/9/02 sailing of the Carnival "Pride." We went to the Western Carribean (Key West, Belize City, Cozumel, and Progresso/Merida).
In short this was an excellent cruise. The ship was very clean and service was outstanding. The food was very good and was served hot throughout the cruise.
Our waiter was Phillip (Jamaica) and the assistant waiter was Angela (Romania). They were wonderful.
We spent most of our nights in the piano bar (Ivory) listening to Joe. It was a blast! The bar service there (Mihaela was our bar waitress) was outstanding.
The ports were fun. I particularly enjoyed Merida, which is different from any Mexican port I've been to. Belize City was also a unique experience (although I recommend bringing bug spray!).
This was our 6th Carnival cruise and this ship outshone all the others by far.
