Camp Carnival, Circle “C” and Club O2 are the hotspots for cool kids with their own dedicated area of the ship just for them. The video gaming centre in particular is awesome and often a big hit with younger guests on board.
Carnival Pride’s main restaurant is the home of Carnival’s Signature Service and this dining room is truly breath taking. The size alone is impressive but the décor and design is wonderfully done. Here you can dine for breakfast, lunch and dinner or opt to dine in one of the alternative dining rooms on board. The Steakhouse is always a pleasure on board this ship and the cuisine here is to die for, where you can enjoy a thrilling array of grill dishes as well as the most delectable seafood creations you can possibly imagine. There’s also the option of the unique Carnival Chef’s Table experience, which is a VIP opportunity that begins with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres for a select group, before leading into a tour of the galley in full operation to give you a backstage pass to where the culinary magic takes place. The evening then concludes with a mind-blowing full service dinner of delightful appetizers, entrees and desserts not found on the regular dining menus.
Casual dining can also be enjoyed at the 24-hour buffet restaurant serving dishes from all around the world. Should you prefer, there is also the option of dining from the comfort of your own stateroom by opting to order from the 24-hour room service menu.
