We went on this cruise because our daughter was getting married on this cruise. One ceremony on the ship before we left and one on Half Moon Cay. To start with the embarkation process was a nightmare. The people parking us seemed to not ... Read more

We live in Northern PA, and Baltimore, MD, is a fantastic alternative to us Northeners who cruise, but do not care for flying. Cruise Baltimore is a fantastic terminal, whose only fault we could find was the lousy sound system. When it ... Read more

I was very disappointed in the food on the ship. It was not very good except the sit down restaurant. The sushi was also very good but that was an additional cost. The food had no taste and was very greasy. Very unhealthy. The ... Read more

I have never been on a Carnival cruise before, and I do not think I will cruise with this line again. We had a decent time, nothing spectacular. The cruise ship was crowded for sure, and if you wanted any sort of seat by one of the pools, ... Read more

After 20 Carnival Cruises I have to give the crew of the Pride top rating. The itinerary was just so-so, but we still had one of the best times ever. Our house keeper, Num, the best yet! If you do the Casino, this crew is awesome. If you ... Read more

This report is going to be a little different because it's more about cruising when handicapped than about the cruise itself. I find there isn't enough information on cruising when mobility is an issue plus we don't do a lot of the ... Read more

My family did this exact cruise seven years ago. My children, now in their late twenties, had fond memories of the Pride and the cruise, so we did it again. Traveling out of Baltimore is easy. We arrived later (1:30) than we wanted ... Read more
