Default Carnival Pride/Queen Mary

Been on the Pride she is a beautiful ship! Loved it, great food, great staff!

I loved the ports! I really loved Mazatlan which many cruisers do not, I did a private tour there with Mazatlan Frank he posts in the Mexico forum on this site this made all the difference. I did the City Colonial tour which he customized for my group. Puerto Vallarta is one of the most beautiful ports I've ever been to loved it! Went to Las Calitas a place you must get to by boat, you can snorkle, swim with dolphins or a sea lion there, I did the sea lion snorkle and had time to get a massage on a hut listening to the ocean waves crash below it was heaven! Cabo is very American you can walk around the port it's tiny. It's a bit too spring break for me. I did the dolphin swim there and can highly reccomend that.

Ok the Queen Mary very Haunted yes. I wouldn't stay on the ship not because she's haunted but because it's moldy, not well maintained. I have mold allergies and they went nuts on board, we had our precruise party there with a singles group. I took lots of photos and got orbs in 1 out of 3, orbs are balls of light how ghost's photgraph. Sadly my camera got stolen on the Pride when I left it in the disco so I don't have my original photos. Do visit the Queen Mary! It's the closest you can get to being on deck of the Titanic. Going on deck and standing next to the huge smoke stacks gave me quite a feeling of history. New ships do not have the four massive smoke stacks.
