First...welcome! Second, please do not post in ALL CAPS! It is considered shouting and it's a bit hard to read.

Third..i cruise the Pride next weekend 6/20 so when I come back i will see if i can help. Won't be able to look at cabins....but maybe i can check out the club.


Some of those cabins are blocked by the lifeboats. Not sure in this case, but someone else can probably help.

Default thanks

You are very kind to offer your help. I cannot tell you how very appreciative I am. I cannot wait for you to return from your trip. Who knows maybe you will become best friends with the mates in cabin 5189 and I will know if life boats block my view. Much Thanks, Betty

Check out the map of the ships layout. I think if youre on deck 5 thats where the lifeboats are. Just look for your room on the map and see if there are the boats around it. If so you may be seeing orange and white for 7 days. Also, it seems that all the DJ's play hip hop these days. Thats the music of our times. You can request some songs too so if they are into rap they may get some of that as well. Enjoy!

Default TRAVELING IN 7A STATEROOM ON 07/24

Hi Shay,

I will be traveling in a 7A on 07/24/09. I have wondered myself if the lifeboats would really block the view. I was told you could sit and look straight out, but dont look down. The $$deal on the room was too good to pass up, the price was the same as a inside cabin on the Riviera deck which I heard was not so good. I have cruised in an inside cabin before and barely spent time in the room but when I did, I felt completely claustrophobic. I will take a pic and post upon my return in August 09.

chat soon!!!

Thank you so much for your feedback. I have thought about upgrading to an 8B cabin so I can't wait to hear what you find out. Be sure to let me know what your cabin number is. I'll be waiting on pins and needles. Thanks

Well, if you go to Webshots.com you can look up pics for the pride. I found an obstructed veiw on deck 4, it looks like it is smack dab in the middle of the life boat row... therefore, it's possible deck 5's obstructed veiw might be the tops of the life boats..... your cabin on the deck plan has the outline of a lifebaot right in the middle of it.

This probably doesn't really help but it was fun to look up.

Hi Betty.

Is this because they want to hear (C)rap music, or not? If it's R&B, your children have good taste.

If the Pride is anything like the Carnival Imagination, your kids might find themselves in a "time warp" as far as music goes. My experience was that nothing after 1995 was played...anywhere...on the ship. Not that I minded....but it was a bit "weird".
