I was very disappointed in the food on the ship. It was not very good except the sit down restaurant. The sushi was also very good but that was an additional cost. The food had no taste and was very greasy. Very unhealthy. The ... Read more

This was the greatest cruise ever. We were treated like we were special. From Domingo, our steward, Steven the waiter and his team, Stevie & Leann the casino hosts and all the employees, this ship employees the best. We have not one ... Read more

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

This report is going to be a little different because it's more about cruising when handicapped than about the cruise itself. I find there isn't enough information on cruising when mobility is an issue plus we don't do a lot of the ... 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
