Overall a nice cruise. Had a few issues- 1. Room was very loud. Right above the Ivory Piano Bar. Bar is noisy until "late"- about 12.30am. With smaller kids, that was a little late for so much noise. 2. Balloon drop ... Read more

This was my 2nd cruise with carnival pride.I am 14 years old. This ship has nothing for kids. The arcade is way too small, the kids clubs are the worst kids clubs you will ever find in the world. My 3 year old brother said he gets bored at ... Read more

This was a first-time cruise for myself, second for my husband (though they were nearly 30 years apart so that doesn't really count). This was something we had talked about for 17 years but had never had the opportunity to do, so we were ... Read more

I am reluctant to send a review in for this trip. I booked this cruise in May 2014 because it was very cheap. It is true what they say, you DO get what you pay for and nothing more. When I booked this cruise Gay Marriage was not ... Read more

This was my 20th cruise overall and 1st with Carnival. I was always hesitant to choose Carnival just because of hearing things about lack of food quality and excessive partying on the ships. The cruise date and location to leave and come ... Read more

The cruise wasn't terrible but I didn't feel like it was the best I've had. We had 13 people total and 2 of those are babies under 2 years old. There wasn't many good choices at the buffet for the babies. I made sure to email and call ... Read more

I'm sure the decor of the boat fits someone's taste but not mine. From the first step on the boat, I found the atmosphere and decor to be very old fashioned and stuffy. The weather and sea were rough, there were so many people who got ... Read more

My husband and I chose the Carnival Pride for our honeymoon and first cruise. The basis of its appeal was the fact that it was inexpensive and allowed for a flexible itinerary. We had days where we kept ourselves busy with activities and ... Read more
