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

First of all, the ship had an accident knocking out the ramp way to board the ship, so we had to enter through a small entrance at the front of the ship. They told everyone to return to the port after 1 pm because there was an incident on ... Read more

We are a couple in our early 30s with a 4 year old. We arrived right at 1:30pm on the day of the cruise and it was a fairly simple process. If you drive, you pull up and drop off your suitcases (no need for everyone to get out of the ... Read more

This was our 5th time on the Pride. We love the layout of the ship, the ease of departure, and it's only a two hour ride from our house, so no airfare. We went to Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay and Nassau. The weather was perfect, and the ... Read more

plenty of things to do to pass the time when sailing. Carnival did a great job of providing options for people of all ages at all times during the day and night. We visited Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay and Nassau. Bring about $100 per day in ... Read more

We sailed from Baltimore and left the horrible, cold, rainy weather. In two days we were in sunny 85 degrees for the next 5 days until we returned to Baltimore and the cold, rainy weather. The food all around was excellent. All meals ... Read more

I chose this cruise because the port is less than 45 minutes away from home. Before this cruise my longest one was only 6 days so I was hesitant about taking a 14 day. It was an extreme plus to have been on the ship for so long because we ... Read more

We enjoyed our cruise immensely, but not necessarily because Carnival offered such a great ship, crew or experience. We NEEDED a vacation and there would have been little, in the course of a normal cruise, to keep us from enjoying time ... Read more
