We sailed on the Pride 10/26 and it was our first cruise. We had a wonderful time. I get motion sickness in cars so I was prepared with my seasick patch and didn't have a problem all week!
We sailed out of Long Beach, CA and were supposed to sail at 4pm. Because of the fires in southern California, the Pride waited till 8:30pm to sail to allow passengers to board that couldn't get to the ship in time. I thought it was great that they waited and not only that, since the airports were closed, they had passengers diverted to Puerta Vallarta, our first stop, so they joined the ship there! I don't know if Carnival paid for it, but they arranged it!
I will sail Carnival next time!
Somebody in the original complaint on this string, said that the Elation cruised at 13 knots going home and they knew it could do 24 knots... I was wondering though.. wouldn't it have gotten to Galveston early had it done 24? I guess the ship pilots know what they're doing and try not to get home too soon..
Does the Elation have a casino? I won $1000 on my first full day at sea on the Pride!
