This morning, I spent some time exploring the Pride of America, our home for the next week.
The Pride of America has some wonderful amenities for their guests to use. They have a great spa, salon, fitness center, and sports court, as well as three swimming pools, a kid's pool and 5 different hot tubs. Every evening, the Hollywood Theater hosts productions to entertain their guests, and of course there is also an internet center for those who are unlucky enough to have to do work while they are cruising.
In terms of dining, there are a total of 13 different options for the guests to choose from. Depending on your mood, you can grab a quick bite to eat at the casual buffet, have a nice meal at the semi-formal dining room, or even dress up and enjoy one of the formal restaurants. Of course, there are also 11 different bars on board the Pride of America if you want to enjoy an adult beverage or two.
The maximum number of guests on any given cruise is approximately 2,500 people. On this trip, it was announced that there were 2,100 guests plus 940 crew members. Most of the food and entertainment was inclusive of your passage fair, though you have to pay an additional charge if you decide to eat at one of the specialty fine-dining restaurants. Also beverages, such as soft drinks and liquor, are items that you have to purchase separately.
Below are a couple of pictures that we took around the ship. Enjoy!
