Mexican Riviera - Carnival Cruise Getaway

Family Portrait

Our son Dave, our daughter DeAnn, Myself and my hubby "Bob" The family cruise vacation in "The Fun Ship" called "Carnival Pride". The itinerary: Los Angeles, Mazatlan, Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas. We had a wonderful time and so much fun. For me it's a perfect vacation for a family because you get to see and you're able to visit different places during the whole week! It's a worry free when it comes to meals and formal dinning experience! The meals are included in the package 24 hours a day. The best thing is if you want the room service, you get to order anything from their menu even if you want the whole menu you can have it. I advise to purchase the "Fountain Card" so you don't have to pay for the drinks (exclude alcohol) each time you need it. You can go to any of their bars on the ship and room service! All you have to do is show your fountain card. For more detailed information refer to Carnival Cruise and ask about the "Fountain Card" and the do's and don't (Carnival Cruise Policies). If you want to see and visit more places, the best thing to do is to purchase their Tour Packages or involve and join other activities, it's worth it! I always involved my family by using their facilities they offered such as spas, steam room, swimming pool, salon packages, and family party events, just to name a few! If you try to involve yourself and your family into these activities, you will have a blast and wonderful time during your cruise vacation. I feel like a "Richie Rich" because you don't use cash while in the ship, you will be using an access key card. Each time you purchased an item or dine in their specialty restaurants, just show the card and sign your name (note: don't loose it!!!). Be very careful using the card and not to get overboard on your spending while on the ship, you will be paying for a big price! Don't forget to warn everyone that includes your kids to beware of using the "Richie Rich Card" each time they use the card on the ship. Also, keep track of all your receipts just incase you have disputed charges. Still, I did not want to get off the ship because, you will get spoiled with their hospitality and service. Honestly, I'm looking forward to our next cruise vacation soon.
