Default LIVE FROM THE PRIDE!!!!!!!!

Yes everyone.... we are now on our cruise and I have successfully connected to the wireless network here on the Pride using my laptop.

We are having a wonderful time and will be at sea yet another day. If you have any questions, I will try to log back in tomorrow or the next day. Ask away!!!

Bon Voyage!!

Hi there!

I'm sailing on the Pride for Halloween in an aft balcony cabin (6260). Can you describe for me what you can see of the aft cabins? How private are the balconies? If you have wandered to that end of the ship, what is the noice/vibration like while you are under way? Any other observations?

Also, what are the internet charges using your wireless connection?

Thanks, in advance, for the info!

Hi Mojavemommy,

How's the weather treating you guys?

Could you check the library and see if the Pride Cruise Critic logbook is safe and sound. It is a spiral notebook, bright blue with a big red heart on it. If you find it, make sure you sign it, okay?

I have a friend on the ship right now. His name is Scott and his wife is Melissa. If you see a corvette shirt, ask him if his name is Scott.

Have a great cruise!!!!

Hope you are having a wonderful time! We are going on the Pride in May. How is the food and service and have you tried David's yet?

We were trying to decide between a regular balcony cat 8 or a mini-suite 11, have you seen any of these to compare?

Yes, they had water available for purchse. They even had churros.

I have noticed more vibration towards the aft section of the ship.

Internet charges for wireless are:
Plan 1 - 250 minutes for $100 (.40 min)
Plan 2 - 100 minutes for $$55 (.55 min)
Plan 3 - 33 min for $25.00 (.75 min)

I had little difficulty hooking up wireless. Service is only available in the immediate area of the internet cafe.

Have not found the log yet, but will keep looking for it.

Any more questions????

This is very nice of you to report back while on vacation. How is the Sea? alot of movement or more of a slow rocking?

Thank you!

Hey Bobbi!

We are officially on the Roll Call for the Pride...sailing October 31, 2004. We booked this cruise in December 2003. But I was holding off posting until it was a little closer to our sailing date. Having taken this particular cruise numerous times, I'm not excited for the ports...I'm excited to meet all the new friends! Count down will soon begin........

The first couple of days out we had some rough seas, but not really bad. It was also somewhat cloudy. Yesterday was much calmer. I will state again that the aft section of the ship has more vibration, in the dining room (deck 2)as well as in Mermaids(deck 9).

I did get the log book, but had to ask the librarian for it as it is locked up in their desk. It is not visible on the shelves. He knew what I was talking about. The book is locked up in the desk that is to your immediate right when you enter the library from the area of the Via Veneto (or the chapel too). It is in the middle to drawer (locked).

Any more questions before I go into Puerto Vallara?????

Thanks for the live updates mojavemommy. I have 39 days until my cruise on the Pride. I'm glad to hear that the log book is locked up. This will save time searching. How bad is the vibration or is it just noticeable rather than being "bad"? We have aft 4227 on our cruise. Enjoy and keep up the reports, pleas!

Bobbi0126 - we were in cabin 6258 right next door to 6260 on the Pride. Didn't get to see 6260 but I can tell you that the vibration was not bad back there. Sometimes we felt a slight one that never bothered us. One night in the dining room it was bad though so I think it's worse on lower decks. As for noise, didn't notice any. I didn't notice any engine noise and there will be very little people noise since that is at the back of the ship and the only traffic will be the people in cabins back there.

Thanks for taking the time from your cruise to check in. One question: How far have you been able to go from the Internet Cafe and still catch a wireless signal? Have they installed any other hot spots on the ship yet?

Happy Cruising
