This was a bonding cruise for the females in my family. My mom, three sisters and I (all four of us in our 50's) live in different parts of the country and don't get to spend much time together, so we opted to spend a week on this cruise, ... Read more

This was our third trip on the Pride. Since the last trip, there have been upgrades to the pool areas, the casino, the Winner's Club bar, the Lido desk dining areas, etc. Another reviewer noted that there have been some minor changes to ... Read more

Booked this cruise as a way to bring family together and *hopefully* stage a successful proposal to my fiancé. While embarkation was challenging, as it took almost two hours to go from curb to ship, when I'm more accustomed to a ... 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

This was the first time we've cruised to Bermuda, and will most likely be our last! The seas from Baltimore to Bermuda were so rough!! A lot of seasoned cruisers were complaining about being seasick and rookies were downright miserable! ... 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

My adult son and I cruised for 8 days on the Pride out of Baltimore. Embarkation was easy but a little delayed as the prior cruise retuned a little late. We had FTTF so we boarded fairly quickly once boarding commenced. We visited guest ... Read more

Very disappointed seeing how once great the dining service and room clean staff have fallen and cut down in recent years. Entertainment cut down as well. Wait staff is overworked and inconstant to say the least. Same for room clean staff. ... Read more

Embarkation was quick we were there a little early so after we got our sail cards we had to sit for about a half hour before they started boarding. It was nice they had a sitting area while you waited. Once they started boarding it went ... Read more

This was our 4th time on the Pride, so we are familiar with the ship. We were a total of nine family and friends, and had a great time, even though we only had about an hour of port time due to dodging hurricane Joaquin. We went really ... Read more

We were unfortunate enough to be on the Carnival Pride during a hurricane. I know Carnival has no control over the weather but they do have control over how they treat their guests while on board and after. We were only able to get off ... Read more

This cruise was the first cruise with my daughters. They are 3 years and 1 year old. Arrival/embarkation: We drove from home which was about a 4 hour drive. Not too bad and certainly better than flying such a short distance. We ... Read more
