Ship Facts: Carnival Pride Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Pride Deck Plans
We Left as First-Timers and Came Back as Cruise-Addicts!
Our first cruise was just amazing. We sailed out of Baltimore on January 10, 2010 and had an amazing time.

Here are some of our experiences:

Embarkation was a breeze! After we dropped our bags off with the porter and parked our vehicle, we were through security and waiting in Zone 6 to board by 11:15 AM. By 1:00 PM we were already on the Lido Deck with our first Drink of the Day and having lunch lunch.

We were in our very spacious cabin, checking out our extra extended balcony by 3:30 PM. I was amazed at the closet space!! Our room steward, iGusti, took very good care of us all week.

We found the ship to be clean, the service was wonderful and all of the crew were friendly and helpful.

We were not fans of the main dining room and we ate most of our meals from the Mermaid Grill. I would rate the food from "OK" to tasty but we never went hungry and we always found something to our liking. We NEVER missed a meal and I'm still craving a cheeseburger from the "Grille". The DH is still wandering around the house looking for the 24-hour soft-serve ice cream. You do get spoiled!

We did self-assist debarkation and it would have been very easy too if we hadn't over-packed! But we managed to haul all of our luggage off the ship and through customs without mishap. We were off the ship by 10:15 AM and home by Noon. You just can't beat that!!

While we don't have another cruise to compare this to... we thought for the price, ports and service it was a great deal.

We loved our cruise on the Pride so much that we have booked another one for February 2011, on the same ship, doing the same itinerary and we even got the same cabin. We just an't wait to get back on the Pride!
