This was our first Carnival cruise and it exceeded our expectations. Previously, we had cruised on NCL quite a few times along with Royal Caribbean and Celebrity. We chose Baltimore because it is within driving distance and significantly ... Read more

The staff and crew of The Pride is just plain outstanding. Wonderful. I don't have a single complaint. After a few days you feel like old friends. The decor is a bit weird, on board entertainment is just so-so (not for lack of effort or ... Read more

I regularly receive free premier cruises from Carnival and that is why we chose this particular sailing. It's tough to beat free, but if I had to pay for my Carnival cruises, I would really have to look carefully at the value vs the ... Read more

Baltimore Port could use a facelift. Arrival time should go back to 9 or earlier. Steakhouse was great as usual. Cowboy Steak for me! Best Shrimp cocktail at Carnival's steakhouses. Chianti brand changed to one not as good as the ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was leaving from Baltimore and the cost for us to fly to Baltimore was very reasonable. We also had never been to Baltimore and took a couple of days to visit. We choose Carnival because we like the ... Read more

The itinerary was fabulous, even thought we didn't get to do what we scheduled in Grand Cayman because of high seas. Food was good and the team was fabulous in the dining room. That was the positives. I am a Gold member, so I have been ... Read more

The Carnival Pride was seemingly decorated by a team of gypsy designers. The hallways are papered in scenes of Venice from the time of the Doges - which is fine - but the rest of the place, including the ceilings, represent a ... Read more

Husband and I chose this cruise out of Tampa in conjunction with another cruise back to back. Food in the dining room was okay-would appeal to families with children. Lunch was always on the Lido deck and the Guy's Burgers were ... Read more

Our embarkation went smooth but slightly disorganized. The terminal at Tampa has people disembarking into same area as the passengers trying to board. The Pride is showing signs of ageing. The main entertainment in the Taj Mahal was not ... Read more

Although the ship was old and the decor not my favorite, it had all the usual entertainment and great service. The main dance band Addixtion was very good. The Playlist Productions were mediocre in their vocals but entertaining. Food ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was on the Pride which is a Spirit-class ship. We love these ships because of the great layout and their smaller size: only about 2000 passengers. We also loved the itinerary because of the visit to ... Read more
