Carnival Pride - What to avoid - First time Carnival Cruiser
 
Sailing on the Carnival Pride this weekend out of Long Beach - what are the things to avoid? This is the first time on Carnival - usually sail on RCI ships. Thanks in advance.

Having sailed and enjoyed both lines, I can't think of a thing to avoid.

A hint would be to check out the aft pool, on the Conquest, we loved this area.

Do not avoid the "Chocolate Melting Cake" in the dining room. You will not be sorry. I can think of nothing to avoid..........
I want it all!!!!!!!!!

Here is some of what I did. It is no longer whale watching season.

I understand Carnival is in the process of changing the menus, but here are some things not to miss.

When is Whale season for the Mexican Riveria??

zydecocruiser April 23rd, 2008 05:36 PM

Whale watching season is typically around Dec - Mar in those parts.

Oh bummer... :cry:
Does that mean there is really no point in looking out from your ship for a whale? or is there a slight possiblity that we might spot one? what about dolphins.... ?

Great chance for dolphins year round.

There may be some lost whales that hang around but I wouldn't plan on it. I'm not sure there is enough food for them.
