We found that the Pride was very thoughtfully laid out and very easy to find your way around.

Promenade Deck- Normandie Restaurant
For dinner we had the early seating on the main floor of the Normandy Restaurant.The food was hot and service was great. The singing and dancing at dinner is getting a bit long-in-the-tooth for me but the kids still love it.

They should just do the Conga in the middle of the cruise and be done with it -- well maybe the Baked Alaska routine too! Our server (Albert from India) was great with the kids and generous with the food.

Panorama Deck- Cabin 8211
Our Cat.8H Ocean Balcony cabin was just right for the four of us. We had plenty of storage and stowage space. We knew the cabin would be smaller than the one we had on the Magic, but were pleasantly surprised at how well it worked out for us.

Lido Deck- Venus Pool and Mermaids' Grille
By getting up to the Venus Pool no later than 9:30 a.m. we ended up with a prime spot every day. We would get breakfast from the Mermaids' Grill and find an open table close to the pool then wait for lounge chairs to open up. The kids would migrate from the pool to the water slide and stop for self-serve ice cream on the way.
The band and sound system were very good. I did miss the steel drums that used to always be part of the standard cruise-ship-pool-band. The pool games were fun to watch- the men beat the women in the Battle of the Sexes and Gary came in ?? place in the Hairy Chest contest.
