First, let me begin by saying we have never sailed with Carnival Cruise Lines before due to all the negative and horror stories the media hypes up. However, looking for a change of pace from sailing with RC, Norwegian, Celebrity, and ... Read more

We have cruised on most of the popular cruise lines, and hadn't been on Carnival for a couple of years, so we decided to try the Pride out of Baltimore as it was the closest port to our home near Pittsburgh. Earlier this summer, we had ... Read more

We had a great time on our 25th anniversary cruise. We had a balcony stateroom on the 4th deck aft starboard side - very convenient for getting to the 2nd deck where all of the action was. This cruise's schedule was disrupted by Tropical ... Read more

I will start with arriving at the Baltimore Port Parking Lot. Some of the workers were not happy to be at work and were less than helpful. Some of them were helpful and made up for the ones who weren't. We were scheduled for the ... Read more

We picked this cruise due to easy port to drive to for us, and also we had never been to Bermuda. We have been on about 5 ships in the Carnival fleet and 1 royal Caribbean. The embarkation went fine due to times now being assigned for ... Read more

This was our second cruise on the Carnival Pride and the different itinerary from the first plus the low price made it an easy decision. I compare cruise prices all the time and for four people to have an all inclusive 7 day vacation for ... Read more

Living in Maryland, we have counted our blessings to have the Pride in our home port, and have always loved this ship and the friendly crew. We even appreciate the decor. Most of all, we enjoy the convenience of sailing from our home ... Read more

Just returned from a 7 day carnival pride cruise. And other than the hurricane and a slight delay in embarkation, it was an amazing trip. I would totally recommend F2F (Faster to the Fun). Its $60 per cabin, but totally worth it. Also, ... Read more

I've been on 3 cruises so far; RC Freedom of seas, Carnival Splendor and Carnival Pride. Overall, I loved Carnival Pride. I liked the fact that it had 2 good sized pools and 2 water slides for kids. I didn't like it that it only had ... Read more

Appeared to be a good deal...but never again on this ship. The service was sloppy in the dining room and the quality of the food was often poor. Several nights we ordered food we didn't get; we would order coffee with dessert but it ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the proximity to our home. We didn't have to fly and could drive to the port. Embarkation went smooth. We had priority since we had a suite so we were one of the first group on. Room was ready with our ... Read more

Embarkation and Disembarkation still need to be worked on. I am platinum and on Embarkation they couldn't direct us to the the correct lines. It was a little crazy. The cabin was normal size, but the balcony was extended and very nice. ... Read more

This was mine and DH's first cruise, and we couldn't have had a nicer time. The only reason for the 4 out of 5 was due to the food, which I'll get to in a minute. We embarked out of Baltimore, because we live in the state, about an hour ... Read more

This was a family vacation. The first 2 nights in the dining were not good at all. Service was terrible and our tables were completely set up incorrectly. They split us up into 1 table for the 9 young adults and than the parents were ... Read more
