CARNIVAL PRIDE

Carnival Pride is the largest size ship able to pass through the Panama Canal.

Among the Carnival Pride's design highlights are two atriums, one of which is an impressive nine decks high. Located at the top of this soaring structure is David's, an elegant reservations-only supper club whose menu includes prime aged beef, South African lobster, and a variety of other gourmet items.

The Carnival Pride also has a full walk-around promenade on Atlantic Deck.  This is unusual on modern-day cruise ships.  The majority of the promenade is exterior, allowing guests to stroll the circumference of the ship in the fresh sea air.

Carnival Pride seemingly has a dance floor at every turn. From the Beauties Dance Club to the Starry Night jazz club, the Rafael Lounge, Ivory Bar, Butterflies Lounge and the grand Taj Mahal show lounge, dancing to live and recorded music is available throughout the ship.

The main dining room -- the stunning Normandie Restaurant -- is two decks high with wrap-around windows located aft on Promenade and Atlantic Decks.

Other highlights of the Carnival Pride include a chapel suitable for weddings or religious services; multi-level Nautica Spa; expansive casino; retractable glass cover over the main Lido Deck pool...

From ornate glass vases and colorful paintings to huge bronze statues of Roman and Greek gods, the artwork to be featured aboard the Carnival Pride is an eclectic mix of classic and contemporary design that enhances the ship's dramatic interiors.

Included among the diverse, multi-million-dollar collection are 70 decorative vases and candleholders by Czech glass artist Borek Sipek. For Carnival Pride, Sipek took a unique approach for his trademark glass pieces, incorporating Renaissance-inspired touches to create the ornate yet beautifully contemporary works, which are located in glass cases positioned in the ship's stair landings.

The classic/contemporary design concept is also carried out in a series of six-foot-high bronze statues of the mythical figures Venus, Apollo and Poseidon created by Italian sculptor Katia Tasselli.

Adorning the Carnival Pride's stair landings and bulkheads are 27 original murals by British artist Andrea Tana, whose works can be seen on several Carnival vessels, as well as in private and public collections worldwide. Inspired by artists such as Gaugin and Matisse, Tana's panels have an almost luminous quality, achieved by mixing several different hues in sweeping patterns of blue, green, yellow, amber and other colors.

Featured in Carnival Pride's 1,062 staterooms are 15 motifs and 14 original oil paintings by American artist Janine Alter, whose works are typically inspired by her travels throughout the world. For Carnival Pride, Alter drew upon her recent visit to Provenše, France, creating a series of warm, pastel-hued paintings inspired by the area's legendary countryside.

Rounding out the collection are the works of Italian artist Augusto Vignali, whose colorful motifs of stunning female figures enhance the Carnival Pride's passenger corridors.
