Ship Facts: Carnival Pride Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Pride Deck Plans
Excellent Cruise Getaway - Carnival Pride February 2011
We (my wife and I) sailed on the Carnival Pride on February 27, 2011. This trip was a planned vacation, a break from 60 hour work weeks, some time to reconnect and relax.

I wont bother to bore you with embarkation details. Baltimore is a nice working port, rather like every other port in North America. Staff were courteous and helpful, nothing to worry or complain about.

We were lucky enough to book early directly through carnival and requested room 6232...a standard balcony room with a balcony the size of a bowling alley. Our room was a standard balcony room with all of the usual items. Very nice room...very quiet! The balcony was arranged with two lounge chairs (same as on the decks or by the pool) and two upright chairs with a little table. We used the balcony when weather permitted, and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was nice to have such a large personal private space.

The weather was not completely cooperative...but let me say in advance that it did not ruin our trip, nor did it cause us to "blame" the cruise line. It was cool and sunny when we left port, but winds picked up dramatically at sea. High winds, in combination with a moving ship provided some dramatic attempts at walking a straight line. Again, not complaining, we enjoyed ourselves throughout. The high winds also followed us to the islands, making beach days somewhat less than perfect due to blowing sand and cooler than normal water temps. But...and I reiterate, it did not ruin our trip.

Food. In one word, excellent. There is always a variety and there is always something to choose from. We chose "my time" dining and never had any problems with staff, food quality or wait. I am not sure what other reviewers feel the need to complain about. We enjoyed each meal, and like most we probably ate too much. Again, no worries on this topic. Food was plentiful and good!

We highly recommend taking this cruise. Other than the weather, we encountered nothing negative. The staff of the Carnival Pride did an outstanding job of ensuring that guests were happy, safe, well fed and attended to. A+ in our opinion!
