I went on The Pride when it was doing the Caribbean. Can't help you with deep sea fishing.
I can tell you that of all my Carnival cruise, The Pride has been my favorite so far. We had a wonderful time. The entertainment was fantastic, food selection in the Mermaide Grill was wonderful. I just loved it all! You can go to the photo galleries and get lots of pics. of the Pride. Not sure what it's titled, but I saw some a while back cuz I wanted to show my friend who just got back on Sunday. They had an awesome time as well!
Not sure if all bingo prices are the same on all the ships. We had fun though.
I think it was a beautiful ship. YOu'll see the pics. and decide if YOU like it.
Feel free to email me. I'll try and answer as much as I know or I can try and find it out for you.
I just checked the photo gallery. On Feb. 12th, Harry Martin posted some wonderful pics. of the pride. They're title something like Pride Photos. But this will give you an idea of what it looks like.
The Pride definitely has some far out decor. Hopefully you don't mind nude women because they are all over the ship (paintings on the walls, elevators, etc.), as well as plastic statues of nudes in the Beauties Disco. Small kids might be shocked!
good sailing, Bonnie
Thank YOu for answering my last post went unnoticed..I dont mind nude women pics and im sure my 14 yr old wont but wondering about my 10-11 ...Well theyll just have to cover their eyes if they dont like it I guess.Im sure well have a great time we are not oblivious to the fact that thats what we look like w/ no clothes on so lol... Thanks again for your replys ................Shelly

I seem to remember the decor to be a combination of the sea and mythology. I remember mermaids, Greek statues of men and women and other things that made me think of the story of Atlantis. I thought it was one of the best decors that I've seen on a cruiseship.
Shelly....To be totally honest with you, I really didn't notice anything totally outlandish EXCEPT in David's the Supper CLub. Oh my.... He was just standing there with everything hanging out! But kids probably would NOT be going into David's.
The rest of the ships decor was fine. A bit too Las Vegasish for US....I like things a bit more subtle..but it was okay.
I have a listing of all the excursions and their prices for the Mexican Riviera....is that the one you want?
As far as the clubs or discos.....we went to Beauties and to the Ivory Bar....as the night wears on ALL get smoky....but when they first open they aren't bad at all. VERY fun! Everyone is very nice and the crew (uniformed officers, social host, etc) will come in, too. Had a great time with them!
Bingo was $10 for 3 cards on the Pride when we went. Not sure if it is that way or not on all ships.
Had a cruise on the Pride at the beginning of this month. I agree wiht what the other posters have said- there is nudity in the decor, but depending on your personality, it will determine if it's too much. It didn't bother myself or my husband. I highly recommend loking at the photo galleries here and type in Pride in the search to view great overviews of the ship. Bingo prices for my cruise were $10 for single bingo card and $20 for a triple card. There are deep sea fishing excursions available in the ports, can't remember if you can in Cabo though. The price for those excursions are usually the more expensive of the excursions and you can't bring any of the fish back on board that you catch. Hope this helps and good luck!
