Unfortunately the weather on first and last sea days you could not sun bath.. The first one was too cold and the last one returning to LB we had 35 MPH winds. We arrived aty the pier late and in 25 minutes we were on board. However on our check in date 1-22 they did a complete crew immigratin check and those passengers that checked in early at QM had to wait up to 3 hours.. Greg diddnt say anthing about his replacement just that he had 7 weeks left
We had 2 cabins. 4140 and 4142. Travelled with my husband, my
college age daughter and her roommate from college. The girls had
a great time. They were a little worried ahead of time that they would not
meet college kids their age, But they did.
We liked our rooms alot. Plenty of room. Plenty of closet space. The rooms
were partial view, which meant that the lifeboats were right outside our room
The shows were above and beyond what I ever expected. I grew up in NY
and saw many Broadway musical and the Pride's shows were up to par with
We had dinner in the dining room every night. Must say we had the best
The first day out it was cool, no sunbathing. But after that the weather
was warm. Last day coming back was very breezy. But remember that
was in January.
Just a note - check your fun card right away for dining time and table number. We did not, and much to our surprise. My husband and I were
booked early dinner. My daughter and friend got late dinner. Of course,
we needed to change that since we requested early dinner and wanted
to dine together. We had to wait on a line for one hour to change. When
we finally got to desk to change there was no problem doing so. They
were very accomodating. Just a pain to do that.
In Mazatlan we took the city/ tour. We really enjoyed that tour.
Visited the oldest church in the city. After the tour we were taken back to
the dock. Grabbed a taxi and went into town. Went shopping and had
dinner in town. Should have gone back to ship to eat, dinner was not
cheap at Senor Frogs.
In Cabo we did not take a tour. You can walk to the town from the pier.
We had drinks at Cabo Wabo which was fun. Than of course shopping again.
In Puerto Vallarto we took the Hotel pool/beach tour. Enjoyed walking along
the ocean. But were warned about jelly fish. So did not go in the ocean.
Oops, sorry I meant the sign and sail card.........
One night we went in one of the main areas to listen to jazz. They even
invited passengers to participate if they played any jazz.......
There is a Sports lounge, a lounge that did Karoke, and of course the
"disco". One night there was a "Pub Crawl" that took you from lounge to
lounge drinking. (of course you pay for your own drinks). I did not attend
that but heard that it was very popular and fun.
After the shows we went to Ivory Piano Bar where there is a piano singer.
AND dancing. Jazz was in Rapael Lounge.
Romantic spot - Sunset Garden - winds around the Taj Mahal Stage.
Long winding walkway with cute little table and chairs. You can get a drink
or coffee/tea and sit in this little area. The two times we walked there it
was very private and quiet.
One thing I noted - The Adults only pool area and spa had a few children
there. Also, saw one in the spa and no one had him leave.
Location: Southern California, between Disneyland and Knott'
New Years cruise a year ago, I mailed post cards from the ship, they arrived at the end of February and one looked like it had been through a lawn mower. I didn't bother this year (Pride DEC 26 sailing) Figured I could hand deliver them faster! And, yes, I had USA on them. I loved the Pride, wish I was there now!
