This was our second cruise with Carnival. It took us less then an hour to embark from our arrival at the Baltimore terminal. We were up on the Lido deck sunning while waiting for the cruise to begin. Very relaxing. To say the least, we ... Read more

This was our first time since the upgrades. The Red Frog by the pool was our favorite spot- the bartenders were awesome. At night the Red Frog on deck 2 was a great place to hang out – they had a live band everything (one night ... Read more

We embarked on Sunday, February 28 2016 in Baltimore. We arrived at the port at about 1 PM. We waited about 30 minutes before going through security. Then we had a pretty long wait, about 45 minutes or more, to check-in. Lines were very ... Read more

Let me start by saying, we usually sail out of Florida. We're New Yorkers, so we're eager to get to the warm weather ASAP and maximize our time in the sun. However, during the school breaks, which we're restricted to, the airfare is over ... Read more

We flew to San Juan a day early and stayed at the Sheraton Old San Juan Hotel. It was very convenient - right across the street from the port. We checked out of our hotel, walked across the street and we were on the ship within 15 ... Read more

We cruised leaving Baltimore on January 17, 2016, returning February 7, 2016. We decided to give Carnival a chance after sailing with other cruise lines. I know that Carnival had a pretty bad reputation. But I thought that after all the ... Read more

Let me start by saying that I didn’t have a bad time but I could have had a much better time. The poor ranking I gave the public rooms was not a result of cleanliness. I found all public areas to be well kept. The poor ranking ... Read more

If you are someone who is sensitive to motion- BEWARE going out of Baltimore can be rough seas. This was my first time cruising and I spent a majority of the time in my room because I was so sick. I took Dramamine and it didn't help. (I ... Read more

My wife and I have been on a cruise before, but not on Carnival. We wanted to take the kids this time, and we heard that Carnival was more kid friendly than many cruise lines. Cost was also a factor as supporting five family members can ... Read more

This was our third time on the Pride, our first NYE cruise. We arrived at port at about 12:00. It took about 1 hour to get on board. We went and picked our cabana for HMC and got a drink, dropped our bags off. Our room was clean and ... Read more

Family of 4 on the 8-night New Year's Eve Cruise. We booked this cruise because we live close to Baltimore and were able to drive to the port on embarkation day, which is great. Embarkation was easy and well run. We had connecting ... Read more

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

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
