This was a Thanksgiving week vacation, Sunday to Sunday, with a family of Ten sailing out of Baltimore. The ship was very nice and embarkation/disembarkation was a snap. We were on the Riviera deck, which I prefer because of seasickness. ... Read more

My wife and I took our first cruise and had an excellent time on the Carnival Pride. The ship was delayed 2 hours and embarkation was not pleasant. We were given very little information and waited in line an extremely long time. We had ... Read more

We have cruised Carnival 3 times and this was our second time on Pride. I was looking forward to booking on board for next summer. Our first time on Pride was so good, I knew even if it did the same old Bahama run, we could do this ship ... Read more

This was our 2nd time on the Pride but our experience did not rate as well as the last time. However, the lower rating was not the fault of the staff onboard the ship and primarily is aimed at Carnival's corporate policies. The Good: ... Read more

We were signed up to go the the Bahamas and Turks and Caicos, but we were re-routed to Saint John, NB and Halifax, NS due to Hurricane Matthew. I was very pleased with how Carnival handled re-routing us: we were given a couple days' ... Read more

Not a good first impression. Got to the port at our scheduled arrival time of 12:00.pm. Waited in line 2 hours before getting to the desk to check in. I know the terminal staff does this every week but they should be a little more ... Read more

First, let me begin by saying we have never sailed with Carnival Cruise Lines before due to all the negative and horror stories the media hypes up. However, looking for a change of pace from sailing with RC, Norwegian, Celebrity, and ... Read more

We have cruised on most of the popular cruise lines, and hadn't been on Carnival for a couple of years, so we decided to try the Pride out of Baltimore as it was the closest port to our home near Pittsburgh. Earlier this summer, we had ... Read more

I will start with arriving at the Baltimore Port Parking Lot. Some of the workers were not happy to be at work and were less than helpful. Some of them were helpful and made up for the ones who weren't. We were scheduled for the ... Read more

We picked this cruise due to easy port to drive to for us, and also we had never been to Bermuda. We have been on about 5 ships in the Carnival fleet and 1 royal Caribbean. The embarkation went fine due to times now being assigned for ... Read more
