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

Living in Maryland, we have counted our blessings to have the Pride in our home port, and have always loved this ship and the friendly crew. We even appreciate the decor. Most of all, we enjoy the convenience of sailing from our home ... Read more

Just returned from a 7 day carnival pride cruise. And other than the hurricane and a slight delay in embarkation, it was an amazing trip. I would totally recommend F2F (Faster to the Fun). Its $60 per cabin, but totally worth it. Also, ... Read more

I've been on 3 cruises so far; RC Freedom of seas, Carnival Splendor and Carnival Pride. Overall, I loved Carnival Pride. I liked the fact that it had 2 good sized pools and 2 water slides for kids. I didn't like it that it only had ... Read more

Appeared to be a good deal...but never again on this ship. The service was sloppy in the dining room and the quality of the food was often poor. Several nights we ordered food we didn't get; we would order coffee with dessert but it ... Read more

This was a family cruise planned for my husband and I, my parents, children and their friends and spouses. 11 people in all with 5 rooms. Upon reaching our cabin there was a slight but apparent smell of sewage. This smell carried down the ... Read more

Just back from a 7 day trip to Grand Turk, Half Moon cay, and Freeport, Bahamas. Baltimore terminal was fine, quick unloading of luggage, short wait to board. We have sailed on the Pride previously, so weren't expecting to be wowed when ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the proximity to our home. We didn't have to fly and could drive to the port. Embarkation went smooth. We had priority since we had a suite so we were one of the first group on. Room was ready with our ... Read more

Embarkation and Disembarkation still need to be worked on. I am platinum and on Embarkation they couldn't direct us to the the correct lines. It was a little crazy. The cabin was normal size, but the balcony was extended and very nice. ... Read more

This was mine and DH's first cruise, and we couldn't have had a nicer time. The only reason for the 4 out of 5 was due to the food, which I'll get to in a minute. We embarked out of Baltimore, because we live in the state, about an hour ... Read more

This was a family vacation. The first 2 nights in the dining were not good at all. Service was terrible and our tables were completely set up incorrectly. They split us up into 1 table for the 9 young adults and than the parents were ... Read more

I have been on the Pride several times. It is a beautiful ship and the crew works very hard to maintain it. The embarkation and disembarkation were very smooth. I actually prefer the revised embarkation/disembarkation location over the ... Read more

This was my 4th time on the Pride. For the first time we had staggered times to check in. Things went fairly well. When we arrived just outside the port it was just after 10:50. It took over 30 minutes to get inside the gates to turn in ... Read more

We had a great time on the Pride and traveled with 19 people; our stateroom (7301) was a great size; near the elevator but very quiet. It did look like there was work done in the bathroom (wall cut out and placed back) but it was not an ... Read more

I chose this cruise because no airfare or hotel was needed. Price for my husband and I was great and leaving from Baltimore is very convenient. I liked staggered checkin mainly because as we went to the lido for lunch I noticed the ... Read more
