I was on the Pride last Summer and had a great time. The on-ship and port recommendations pretty much cover it. We had the same itinerary that you have and my absolute favorite stop was Half Moon Cay. It was the best day at the beach ever. The only negative was you have to tender in so if you want to get "dibs" on being the first off the ship, best to reserve some sort of excursion (lots of water things to do) or reserve one of the cabanas. The cabanas are a bit pricey but are a nice choice to keep you from fighting the crowds for prime beach space. Also, you say you may stay at a hotel and shuttle to the port. I don't know if this means you are flying in or just driving but if you are driving, the port is very easy to get to and parking was simple as it sits right at the dock. Since we live in MD, we drove to the port and had no problems whatsoever, so you may want to consider this option if you are driving.

Enjoy!
