CAPTAIN INTERVIEW

HOTEL DIRECTOR INTERVIEW
Pride's largest entertainment venue is the Taj Mahal.  
"We have recalled the spirit of the Taj Mahal using
authentic Indian architectural details and patterns,"  Mr.
Farcus has said.  Thus, the room uses mosaics made from
semi-precious stones as well as Indian domes and
archways.
The stage is 32 feet wide, 42 foot deep and 16 feet high.  
It has a turntable 26 feet in diameter with five lifts that
can rise individually.  The orchestra pit can also be
raised and lowered.  Combined with computerized light
and sound systems, it is the equal of landside theaters.
The Taj Mahal is sued for the ship's production shows as
well as for visiting entertainers and for activities such as
Bingo.  
The Renaissance
Lobby Bar
is the central
point of the lobby area.  
Accordingly, it carries
forward Mr. Farcus'
contemporary
interpretation of
Renaissance design, which
is the overall theme of the
lobby area.
Due to its central location,
the Lobby Bar is at the
crossroads of the ship and
is an excellent spot for
watching the world go by.
In addition, it features live
entertainment as well as
specialty drink events such
as a "Margarita Festival."
Butterflies Lounge is Pride's second large showroom.  In this area, Farcus sought to
recreate the beauty of butterflies and there are multi-colored depictions of butterflies and
butterfly wings throughout the room.  The room has its own bar, a stage and a dance floor.  It
is sued for activities such as art auctions and has live music in the evenings.
The Winner's Club is a large casino with its own bar,
gaming tables, slot machines and electronic gaming.
Its decoration was inspired by the beauty of the feeling that a
gambler gets from winning. The decor focuses on horse racing
with jockey silks on the walls and the wood and leather styling
of the jockey club.
Pride's sports bar is the Perfect Game.  Similar to the casino, the decor is inspired by a feeling - - the
beauty a sports fan feels with a perfect game.  The room has murals of great sport events as well as displays
of balls and bats.  It also has numerous television monitors for watching sporting events.
Beauties encompasses
portions of two decks and is the
ship's nightclub/ dance club.  
The decorating theme is a play
on the idea that the beautiful
people frequent nightclubs.  It
features brightly colored male
and female torsos standing by
themselves and used functionally
for purposes such as supporting
a table.  Beauties has a bar and
a large dance floor.
The piano bar is Ivory Bar  It features
a circular counter surrounding the piano
that places the guests within
conversation distance of the performer.  
The performer can electronically shift
the position of the piano so as to focus
on any of the guests.
Decoration-wise, the room is inspired by
the beauty of Japanese ivory carving.   It
has resin reproductions of Japanese
carvings and Japanese styled furniture.    
The pool areas are served by the Venus Bar (above left), which is
situated between the Venus Pool and the Apollo Pool and the
Poseidon Bar (above right), which serves the pool of the same
name.  
Starry Night pays
homage to the lesser
known of Vincent Van
Gogh's Starry Night
paintings.  It includes
floor to ceiling images of
the painting. In addition,
the ceiling is done to
recall a starry night seen
from a 19th Century
French bistro.
The room is used for
activities during the day
and for karaoke in the
evening,  It has a bar and
dance floor.  
Outside of both levels of the Normandie Restaurant are lounges, the Raphael Lounge (above) and the Florentine Lounge
(below).  In addition to being well-situated for before and after dinner drinks, these lounges are used during the day for activities
including trivia quizzes and for afternoon tea on sea days.  They also have live cocktail and jazz music in the evenings.
