To start, we have never went out of Baltimore prior to going on the Carnival Pride. We went from New York many times, Puerto Rico, and Miami, FL. This one was by far the easiest and fastest port for embarkation and disembarkation. We ... Read more

Where do I begin? My family and I have cruised four times previously, the most recent being Holland America to Alaska. Each cruise was on a different line and destination. We do have an idea what to expect, so anything less than those ... Read more

Carnival Pride is definitely a ship showing some age (launched 2001) and is in need of some clean-up and touch-up (many rust stains all over the ship). We chose the Memorial Day week sailing as it fit with the school vacation schedule. ... Read more

This was only our second cruise on the Pride and really love the ship and crew. We live in Maryland and have done 5 other cruises out of Florida but have the Pride booked for next year to Bermuda. First time in Half Moon Cay and loved it. ... Read more

I took my very first cruise on Carnival Pride out of Baltimore to Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay and Freeport. I had a blast. I had a Ocean View room on the first floor 1212. I was surprised I expected a smaller room and a small bathroom. Being ... Read more

First of all, the port of Baltimore was awesome. easy and uncrowded. We did have a late arrival though so maybe we missed crowds but getting off was a breeze thru customs. We used Orlando before and this was a HUGE difference for the ... Read more

The reason for this cruise was to scatter my husband's ashes. He and I were avid cruisers and his wish was to be scattered at sea so he could be "fish food". Our favorite cruise lines were Celebrity and Holland America, but ... Read more

Is was our third bi-annual Spring Break cruise with grand-kids. Sailing from Baltimore is great since the port is only 40 minutes from our home. We opted for Ocean Suites this time around since the little ones aren't so little any ... Read more

This is my second time on the Pride. We love the Pride! My husband and I were disappointed with the singers on the cruise. We felt their voices were just average (perhaps we were just spoiled from our first cruise when the entertainers ... Read more

We choose this cruise based upon the dates and location of the port. It was the kids (ages 15 & 17) spring break and being based out of Baltimore meant that we didn't have to fly. Embarkation and Disembarkation were so smooth and ... Read more

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

This cruise was our fifth cruise on the Pride; my 21st cruise and DH's 23rd. Our most recent cruises have been with Carnival, but we've also cruised with other cruise lines (Celebrity, RCCL, NCL, Cunard). I will add though, we've been ... 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

I have enjoyed two Carnival cruises previously. A three day and 7 day. This one was not that enjoyable. Unlike the others the level of service was lacking. I enjoy being spoiled so this was my disappointment. The things different ... Read more
