this is our 4th cruise on the pride and this is my first review. the port at baltimore was a breeze, we arrived about 12:30, checked our bags and waited till we saw others bording before going in line.(that way your not stuck just standing or sitting in the secure area) we were on by 1:30 first stop deck 9 where all the food and pools are, lunch and in the cabin at 2:30, got our bags by 4:00, had our safty drill and were on our way. the weather was above average at baltimore and pools were busy from day 1.
we had early dining and thought the food was great (no cooking or dishes) lido deck had buffets and could always find somthing good, 24 hr pizza and ice cream was great. lunch in the MDR. is always nice.
2 days at sea, the pools, the sun, and at night the casino. no shows this time but the comedians were the same as before (but they were good last time)
grand turk left at the end of the pier past margaritaville to local village free wifi, chairs, umbrellas and music. beach not crowded, har our own snorkels or can rent there(lots of fish right off the beach)
half moon key, cruise lines own island, had lunch there (provided) went back early for a few rides on the water slide.
freeport, cab ride to lucaya marketplace, $10 roundtrip per person, had a few frozen drinks and lunch at zorbas in the marketplace(grouper platter for $10 great deal!!)
this is our 4th on the pride and the 5th cruise will be in october and will be trying royal in march 2013, so i would recomend this cruise, if you try hard enough you can find somthing negative to dwell on but life is too short for that. thanks.
