Ship Facts: Carnival Pride Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Pride Deck Plans
Carnival Pride Cruise Feb 27th...
We arrived at Port of Baltimore about 11:30am... They started letting cars through at about 12:15.. Process very quick in leaving off luggage and parking. Once in the terminal it took a little over an hour to get through security and then get on board..

We went to the lido deck got a drink and something to eat. Our cabin was ready at about 3:15...

Dinners.. We had early seating(6pm) and ate in the dining room every night but one.. Most of the dinners were very good.... Each evening there was always plenty to choose from... The only complaint we had was twice during the week, one of our part of 4 was still finishing their dinner and the waiter was putting the menu's in front of us.. We were not slow at all, the latest we left dinner was 7:30, and there was plenty of people left still finishing, so our waiter was not trained as well as he should have been.. Overall, nice dining experience..

Breakfast.. We ate all our breakfast on the lido deck, Omelets were good, French toast was not bad, potatoes always seemed good...Bacon was fine.. However, sausage was always mixed with other items, I enjoyed this, but I am sure some did not care for this each day...

Lunch... we only had lunch a couple of times, usually just grabbed a burger or dog...

Shows.... The first big show was not very good, I believe it was called the World of music.. Fairly boring.. The second big show( done of the last night of our cruise was much better.. It was called Vroom ... It was scheduled for the second to the last night but the ship was rocking too much for the show that night..

The Piano Bar was very good... Roger was the best entertainer I have seen on a cruise ship... He had a great crowd every night until closing at 1am..

The first set of comedians were great... their shows were outstanding.. The next two that got on in Nassau, were no where near as good... However, the one got sick with the ship rocking but still did his show, so I guess I should give him a break..

Did not really attend most of the carnival games or contests... Did go to Karaoke once, that was okay...

Overall this cruise is a nice cruise for the money... we were able to drive to avoid the expense and hassle of flying, and the cruise was less then 600.00 a person for a week... great value.. I have been on cruises that are a little better, but for the money, this was great
