Ship Facts: Carnival Pride Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Pride Deck Plans
Pretty Darn Good!
We arrived at Port of Baltimore at 11:45. My husband uses a wheelchair. From the time we pulled in the lot, dropped our luggage, registered and were up on the lido deck enjoying lunch was about 45 minutes. The baltimore staff is extremely efficient.

We found the ship clean, accessible, and homey in a strange kind of way. We were not botheres or offended by the decor. The elevators could get crowded at times

Our stateroom was clean and had enough storage. We chose an obstructed view balcony. We would not do that again. The door was very difficult to open and the balcony barely fit two chairs. Our room steward Caetano was unbelievable. The kids called him a ninja. We never saw him but everything was always cleaned, stocked, and the towel animals plentiful!

The Kids clubs were sufficient. We have learned that the kids are happy having freedom and breaking into little groups along the cruise. They are happy having a home base to go but for the most part do not partake in too may of the organized activities.

The entertainment was not as good as other cruises on Carnival. The comediens the first two nights..Mike Macy and Seth Buchwald were hilarious. After that the other comediens and musical acts were not up to par. As a matter of fact, the majority of the acts were off key and second rate.

The dining was good not great. The service in the dining rooms seemed to be understaffed. The Lido deck buffet was always super crowded. Alot of lines. Dinner in the Normandie was either rushed or too slow. The food although good was always luke warm at best

Disembarkation again was extremely organized. We chose self debarkation and from the time we hit the gangway got through customs and were in our car was 10 exagerration!

All in all we enjoyed our cruise. Carnival is a good and consistent product.
