First time with Carnival and Pride and the cruise exceeded expectations. Very friendly staff, ship laid out well, loved the layout of the Mermaid Grill, meals in dining room were fine although not enough variety. Show lounges were always too cold but the entertainment was good for the most part. Public areas very clean, the decor was better than expected, Serenity area was great for relaxing although the chair hogs were out in droves and did not,appear to be monitored at all. Had inside room 1111 and would book this room again. Perfect location for shows, quiet, absolutely no noise, biggest shower yet with fold down seat. Excellent room stewards. Only complaint is the horrendous smell of smoke in the casino, outside the casino and the smell drifts everywhere. You have to walk through the casino to get to the show lounge. This is poorly planned. Also on the Lido deck but at least you can walk on the other side to get away from it. Would definitely sail again with Carnival and on Pride.
