Pride of America Best & Worst Staterooms: Summary
Best Cabins onboard the Pride of America: staterooms on Decks 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12.
Cabins to be wary of onboard the Pride of America: stateroom on Deck 7.

Deck-by-Deck Breakdown of the Best and Worst Cabins onboard the Pride of America

Deck 4

Although there are public areas above the cabins on Deck 4 of the Pride of America, this is going to be a reasonably quiet place to reserve a stateroom. Most of the public venues directly above on Deck 5 (such as the shops, coffee bar, and small restaurants) are not open into the wee hours, and as a rule are not major noise sources.

  • Forward on Deck 4 of the Pride of America, exterior cabins 4500- 4506 port side and 4000- 4006 starboard, and inside staterooms 4503, 4003, and 4005 are underneath the most aft portion of the stage. There could be some noise heard overhead from these staterooms during performances, as well as before and after when staff are preparing for or cleaning after a show.
  • On Deck 4 of the Pride of America, the roomiest exterior staterooms are 4588, 4590, 4088, and 4090.
  • Except for the most forward exterior and interior staterooms (4500- 4505), the rest of the staterooms on this deck have cabins above, and are consequently going to be quieter.
    Interior cabins 4039 and 4583 are twice the size of other inside staterooms on Deck 4 of the Pride of America.
  • Least preferred inside cabins on Deck 4 of the Pride of America are 4019, 4021, 4089, and 4091. These are all located by stairwells and could have noise issues.

Deck 7

***CruiseAdvice.org Warning ***
Some cabins on this deck with potential problems.
Along this entire deck, you should be aware that the main drag of the Pride of America is right beneath your cabin. Some of the public venues on Deck 7 are not going to present appreciable noise issues, but the nightclub, diner, and aft main dining room areas could cause some noise concerns for the staterooms just above.

  • Forward, exterior cabins 7514- 7534 port side and 7014- 7034 are over the nightclub, and there could be noise issues very late at night. Light sleepers may want to locate a stateroom elsewhere, bring along earplugs, or invest in a wave machine (a sound device available at a specialty retailer like Brookstone -- produces pleasant sounds that can wipe out the unpleasant sounds).
    Port side on Deck 7 of the Pride of America, exterior staterooms 7600- 7618 are over a diner which is open 22 hours a day. While this is not likely to present a major noise concern, it could be possible to hear some commotion very late at night.
  • On the Pride of America's Deck 7, exterior cabins 7660- 7684 port side and 7160- 7184 are over the aft main dining room. There could be noise during dining hours and during the clean-up after each meal. For dinner, the last diners usually exit by 10:30 and there is likely to some noise from the clean-up (vacuum cleaners) as late as 11:30. Given that most people don't get back to their cabins to after 11 PM, this shouldn't be a substantial issue. Breakfast typically starts in the main dining room at 7:00 AM, so you might hear some noise above starting then. However, few people go to the main dining room for breakfast, so this should not be a major issue.
  • While we are not suggesting this entire deck be avoided, the staterooms just mentioned are among the worst cabins on the Pride of America. There are better accommodations to reserve on Deck 7, as well as other decks on this ship!
  • Best locations for a stateroom on Deck 7 of the Pride of America include outside cabins 7540- 7550, 7552- 7584, 7622- 7642, and 7644- 7657 port side, and 7040- 7050, 7052- 7142, and 7144- 7158 starboard. These include ocean view staterooms with obstructed views (7552- 7584, 7622- 7642, and 7052- 7142). All of these are above public areas which are not particularly noisy, and not open late into the evening. There are a few inside cabins most forward on Deck 7 which are also going to be quieter locations (7501- 7505 and 7001- 7007).
  • Exterior staterooms 7542 and 7546 are larger than standard.
  • Deck 7 of the Pride of America also has 2 Bedroom Family Suites. Of these, 7592, 7594, 7092, and 7094 have obstructed views and are located midship. If your view is not a concern, but you would like more space than standard, these are great suites! With over 350 sq. ft. each, these are about 20 sq. ft. larger than those located aft on this deck! The family cabins are in short supply and are very popular given their attractive sleeping arrangements. They sell out very quickly, so it is best to book early if this is your preference.
  • Aft on Deck 7, the Pride of America has 2 Bedroom Family Suites (7678 and 7178), each with over 330 sq. ft. including balcony space. These command the most beautiful (and least breezy) ocean view.
  • Between the Family Suites, six balcony staterooms (7680, 7682, 7684, 7184, 7182, and 7180) have that highly sought aft view of the ocean! Balconies for these staterooms are also larger than standard.

Deck 8

***CruiseAdvice.org Favorite Deck ***
Highly rated by our cruise experts!
In addition to Family Suites, Deck 8 of the Pride of America adds the luxurious Owners Suites! There are also several balcony staterooms and inside cabins from which to choose. Deck 8 has the added advantage of cabin decks above and beneath which filter out noise public areas can generate! Some of the best cabins on the Pride of America are generally onboard Deck 8.

  • Forward on the Pride of America, Owners' Suites 8500 and 8000 offer the most spacious accommodations on Deck 8. (Each has up to 875 sq. ft. of space including the balcony.) However, unless there's a tailwind, balcony views from this vantage point are going to be breezy!
  • Deck 8 of the Pride of America features balcony staterooms port side (8502- 8698) and starboard (8002- 8198). Of these, balcony staterooms 8502- 8530 port side and 8002- 8030 starboard have larger than usual balconies.
  • If you are looking for an inside cabin, this is an excellent deck. There are several located on Deck 8 of the Pride of America, and none of these are close to elevators and stairwells. Interior cabins 8677 and 8177 are also larger than standard.
  • Balcony staterooms 8554 and 8558 are larger than average on Deck 8 of the Pride of America.
  • Aft on Deck 8 of the Pride of America, there are 2 Bedroom Family Suites (8702 and 8202). Both have majestic (less breezy) views of the ocean from over-sized decks. As mentioned, family cabins do reserve very quickly so it's important to book one as early as possible if this is your preference.
  • Balcony staterooms 8704, 8706, 8708, 8208, 8206, and 8204 are located between the aft Family Suites and have that highly sought view of the ocean!

Deck 9

***CruiseAdvice.org Favorite Deck ***
Highly rated by our cruise experts!
The Pride of America's Deck 9 has several well situated balcony staterooms and suites from which to choose. This deck also has the added advantage of cabin decks above and beneath which filter out noise public areas can generate! Some of the best cabins on the Pride of America are generally onboard Deck 9.

  • Forward on the Pride of America, the 2 Bedroom Deluxe Family Suites 9500 and 9000 offer the most spacious accommodations on Deck 9. (Each has up to 650 sq. ft. of space including the balcony.) However, unless there's a tailwind, balcony views from this vantage point are going to be breezy! Family cabins do reserve very quickly so it's important to book one as early as possible if this is your preference.
  • Deck 9 of the Pride of America features balcony staterooms port side (9502- 9696) and starboard (9002- 9196). Of these, balcony staterooms 9502- 9528 port side and 9002- 9028 starboard have larger than usual balconies.
  • Interior cabin 9175 is larger than standard.
  • Balcony staterooms 9552 and 9556 are larger than average on Deck 9 of the Pride of America.
  • Aft on Deck 9 of the Pride of America, there are 2 Bedroom Family Suites (9698 and 9198). Both have majestic (less breezy) views of the ocean from over-sized decks. As mentioned, family cabins do reserve very quickly so it's important to book one as early as possible if this is your preference.
  • Balcony staterooms 9700, 9702, 9704, 9204, 9202, and 9200 are located between the aft Family Suites and have that highly sought view of the ocean!

Deck 10

***CruiseAdvice.org Favorite Deck ***
Highly rated by our cruise experts!
The forward most section of suites and staterooms Pride of America's Deck 10 are also cushioned between two cabin decks, which helps to make these quieter accommodations. While some of the cabins and suites midship and aft might have a few noise concerns from the pool and casual aft dining area, this is another great location for a balcony stateroom. Some of the best cabins on the Pride of America are on Deck 10!

  • Forward on the Pride of America, Owners' Suites 10502 and 10002 offer the most spacious accommodations on Deck 10. (Each has up to 875 sq. ft. of space including the balcony.) However, unless there's a tailwind, balcony views from this vantage point are going to be breezy!
  • Located between these two Owners' Suites, Deluxe Penthouse Suite 10000 has up 697 sq. ft. of space including the balcony, and is the largest of its kind on Deck 10 of the Pride of America. Once again, ocean views from these balconies are likely to be windy.
  • There are numerous balcony staterooms port side (10526- 10676) and starboard (10026- 10176) on the Pride of America's Deck 10! Of these, 10534 and 10538 have larger balconies.
  • Inside cabins 10157, 10661, and 10161are larger than standard.
  • Some of the best cabins to consider on Deck 10 of the Pride of America are in the forward section of the ship. Exterior cabins 10502- 10550 port side, 10000- 10050 starboard, and interior staterooms 10501- 10527 and 10001- 10031 are going to be quieter than other accommodations because these have cabins above and beneath to buffer noises public areas can generate. If you're looking for an inside cabin on this deck, we recommend these in the forward section of the Pride of America over all others.
  • On Deck 10 of the Pride of America, outside cabins 10552- 10582 port side, 10052- 10082 starboard, and interior staterooms 10053, 10059, and 10083 are underneath the pool area. It will be possible to hear some noise in this area, such as the scraping of deck chairs when staff are cleaning at night.
  • Balcony staterooms 10604- 10620 are located under a popular bar, and could be noisy at night. Again, we suggest that light sleepers look elsewhere, bring earplugs, or invest in a wave machine.
  • In the aft section of Deck 10 of the Pride of America, staterooms 10652- 10684 port side and 10152- 10184 are under the casual dining cafe. Noise could be heard as early as 7:00AM when diners come in for breakfast, and after 11:00PM when staff are cleaning. We do not think this will present much of a concern for most guests, however.
  • Aft on Deck 10 of the Pride of America, 2 Bedroom Family Suites 10678 and 10178 have fantastic ocean views. As a reminder, family cabins are in in short supply and are very popular given their attractive sleeping arrangements. They sell out very quickly, so it is best to book early if this is your preference.
  • Between the Family Suites, balcony staterooms 10680, 10682, 10684, 10184, 10182, and 10180 also have that beautiful (less breezy) view of the ocean.

Deck 11

***CruiseAdvice.org Favorite Deck ***
Highly rated by our cruise experts!
Once again, on the Pride of America, Deck 11 offers luxury accommodations intermingled with staterooms where there will be cabins above and beneath to buffer noises public venues can generate. There are several penthouse suites in this area, which typically means that this is where some of the best cabin stewards are assigned. Budget minded travelers may do quite well locating a balcony stateroom or inside cabin on this deck!

  • Forward on the Pride of America, Deluxe Penthouse Suites 11500 and 11000 are the most spacious of all. We do caution that views from these forward balconies are likely to be breezy.
  • Ten Penthouse Suites are also located on Deck 11 of the Pride of America.
  • Eight balcony staterooms are tucked between the Penthouse Suites (11512, 11514, 11524, 11526, 11012, 11014, 11024, and 11026). All of these have larger balconies than standard, and are in a great service zone!
  • Inside cabins 11501- 11525 and 11001- 11027 are also in this high rentĀ section of the Pride of America's Deck 11.
  • Least recommended on the Pride of America's Deck 11 is balcony stateroom 11046, because it is located right next to a public bathroom for the pool area and could have noise issues. We suggest looking farther forward to avoid this concern.

Deck 12

***CruiseAdvice.org Favorite Deck ***
Highly rated luxury accommodations by our cruise experts!
