I have never been on a Carnival cruise before, and I do not think I will cruise with this line again. We had a decent time, nothing spectacular. The cruise ship was crowded for sure, and if you wanted any sort of seat by one of the pools, ... Read more

After 20 Carnival Cruises I have to give the crew of the Pride top rating. The itinerary was just so-so, but we still had one of the best times ever. Our house keeper, Num, the best yet! If you do the Casino, this crew is awesome. If you ... Read more

My family did this exact cruise seven years ago. My children, now in their late twenties, had fond memories of the Pride and the cruise, so we did it again. Traveling out of Baltimore is easy. We arrived later (1:30) than we wanted ... Read more

First of all, the ship had an accident knocking out the ramp way to board the ship, so we had to enter through a small entrance at the front of the ship. They told everyone to return to the port after 1 pm because there was an incident on ... Read more

We are a couple in our early 30s with a 4 year old. We arrived right at 1:30pm on the day of the cruise and it was a fairly simple process. If you drive, you pull up and drop off your suitcases (no need for everyone to get out of the ... Read more

This was our 5th time on the Pride. We love the layout of the ship, the ease of departure, and it's only a two hour ride from our house, so no airfare. We went to Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay and Nassau. The weather was perfect, and the ... Read more

plenty of things to do to pass the time when sailing. Carnival did a great job of providing options for people of all ages at all times during the day and night. We visited Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay and Nassau. Bring about $100 per day in ... Read more
