This was the first cruise ever for my family! We were so excited and raring to go that we could hardly contain ourselves in the days leading up to the time of departure. The ship, although a little worn, was very lovely. My cabin was ... Read more

I love the Pride. This was my 5th cruise. However I noticed that some of the perks are no more. Examples are not all cabins get the robes (you can have them upon request) but not every room has them any longer. The complimentary ... Read more

Having taken almost 30 cruises and none on Carnival, we decided to try Carnival to see if some of the negative comments we heard were true. We were pleasantly surprised, but not awed. Food was better than expected and we did not see a ... Read more

Pride is a nice size ship. The cruise is convenient from NYC and Baltimore and saves a flight from this area. Captain and crew are very friendly. Steve the cruise director runs a tight ship. I am platinium, so this makes a difference on ... Read more

Chose this cruise because of being off Thanksgiving week and we were able to drive to Baltimore. We purchased Faster to the Fun and waited a long time to board the ship. Our cabin was indeed ready as promised, but no luggage. The muster ... Read more

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

Our group of six friends wanted a quick trip before winter and the onset of the holiday season. The port of Baltimore is only two hours from our Pennsylvania home, and is right off of Interstate 95 and easily accessed. The ship, the ... 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
