Default Carnival Pride - What to avoid - First time Carnival Cruiser

Sailing on the Carnival Pride this weekend out of Long Beach - what are the things to avoid? This is the first time on Carnival - usually sail on RCI ships. Thanks in advance.

Having sailed and enjoyed both lines, I can't think of a thing to avoid.

A hint would be to check out the aft pool, on the Conquest, we loved this area.

Here is some of what I did. It is no longer whale watching season.

I understand Carnival is in the process of changing the menus, but here are some things not to miss.

Whale watching season is typically around Dec - Mar in those parts.

Oh bummer...
Does that mean there is really no point in looking out from your ship for a whale? or is there a slight possiblity that we might spot one? what about dolphins.... ?

Great chance for dolphins year round.

There may be some lost whales that hang around but I wouldn't plan on it. I'm not sure there is enough food for them.
