ENTERTAINMENT AND PUBLIC AREAS
Carnival Pride offers plenty of activities for passengers of all ages and interests. The pools and hot tubs on Lido Deck are at the center of the action during the day, and a myriad of refreshments are available to satisfy the sun seekers and the kids. For those who aren’t looking to get their feet wet, concerts, ice-carving demonstrations, and shuffleboard are among many of the other activities onboard. Peace and quiet can be found at the pensive Sunset Lounge or the Body Beautiful Spa. The sauna and steam room in this area are a well-kept secrets and a great way to unwind after a long day. Many folks try their hand at the increasingly popular Bingo tournament or head to the Winner’s Club Casino for the real gambling action. In the evenings, the Renaissance Lobby is a centralized social spot. Drink specials and a string quartet are the norm, as people catch an aperitif before supper or mix and mingle into the night. And, of course, the big shows take place in the classy Taj Mahal Theatre.
Bars, lounges, and casinos:
During the daytime, performers on the Pride demonstrate everything from drink-mixing to reggae music. Evening entertainment emanates from the front of the ship, and on the Promenade, the Taj Mahal showcases Vegas-style and larger production numbers. Below, on the Riviera, Butterflies Lounge offers a more intimate setting for nightly musical acts and adult-oriented comedy.
The Shore Excursions Desk is located in the Renaissance Lobby on the Promenade Deck. There are experts — as well as pamphlets and fliers — to assist passengers with their selections for onshore activities. On the first at-sea day, the coordinator presents the options for each port of call via a slide-show presentation in the ship’s theater which is later looped back over one of the television stations. The registration period, however, begins immediately after the presentation; some guests elect to skip the presentation to avoid the ensuing long lines. Excursions range widely in terms of price, activity, and degree of difficulty. For example, travelers may elect to snorkel, drive an all-terrain vehicle, clip into a jungle zip line, or tour a tequila distillery.
Some of the most popular offerings are:
Branching out from an already successful “Club O2” program across their fleet, Carnival is rolling out new youth programs and specialty areas on the Pride. The revamped “Camp Carnival” is part of the existing area known as “The Fun Club” on the Upper Deck and serves as the current venue for children 2–11 years old. “Circle C” is a new club, exclusively for kids 12–14 years old. “Club O2” is also new and is geared to provide a unique “place to call their own” for the 15–17 year-old crowd. Select babysitting services are also available for children under the age of two.
Activities are available for the following age groups:
SPA AND FITNESS
Carnival Pride has plenty of amenities for those looking to stay sharp while on board. The ship has a sports deck which contains a small jogging track that encloses two shuffleboard areas. From the windows on the track, one can look down and see the gymnasium. The gym itself is fairly modern, with aerobic equipment on one level and weights on another, totaling roughly 40 pieces of equipment. There is also a studio where several exercise classes are held. In the center of the gym is a glass-enclosed area with a very inviting (though seldom used) whirlpool. The adjacent locker rooms are plush and inviting and contain a sauna, steam room, and private, deluxe shower rooms. The Body Beautiful Spa offers massages — including irresistible scalp massages — wraps, and hot stone treatments from a staff of well-trained masseuses.
