Ship Facts: Carnival Pride Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Pride Deck Plans
Fun but chilly

This was our third cruise with Carnival. We would have preferred to depart from a warmer port (Tampa or Miami), but in an effort to save money, we chose the Pride because getting to Baltimore was easy and inexpensive.

Our family of five left March 23 and, as we expected, the first two days at sea were chilly. We spent another unusually chilly day at Port Canaveral and the Kennedy Space Center. We spent the next two days at Nassau (Balmoral Island) and Freeport (Taino Beach Resort). Sadly for us, those days were unusually chilly and very breezy, so the time at the beach wasn't particularly enjoyable. While the weather was disappointing (albeit a little expected), the rest of the cruise was great. As always, we had amazing service from our cabin steward and from the dining room staff. We continue to be so impressed with how hard these people work to give us a good vacation. With the exception of one vegetarian entree, our meals were excellent, too. We took advantage of the anytime dining program and were seated immediately each night. My 13-year-old daughter spent some time at the pool on our final day at sea. Other than that, we didn't use the pool at all. But we took advantage of the basketball court, putt-putt course, fitness center, spa, evening shows, daily games, trivia contests, cruise director Q&A session and many of the other activities offered onboard.

Overall, we love cruising with Carnival, but next time we will leave from a warmer port.
