Great cruise but unusual decor

Sail Date: September 2011
Destination: Bermuda
Embarkation: Baltimore

This was our 10 year wedding anniversary so we were hoping to not be disappointed. In the the end we were more then happy. Both embarkation and disembarkation out of Baltimore were quick and easy.

We really enjoyed our room which we thought was perfectly placed but there were times that you could hear carts from the floor above.The room steward was very nice and always had our room in tip top shape. Since we went after school was back in there wasn't many kids on board. Which helped make the cruise extra relaxing ( not that we are against children ).
 
The ship was full but there were plenty of areas for everyone and it never seemed over crowded. I would say that the only exception to that would be the butterflies lounge for the comedians. I suggest that you arrive early to the comedy shows. And yes the comedians were extremely funny. I would definitely recommend the comedy shows especially the adult ones. All of the other shows and activities were fun.

The More main complaint that we had was the food. It wasn't bad but it wasn't great either. I do have to say that they have the best cruise ship pizza and Davids restaurant was excellent. The ships decor was also a little overwhelming. It wasn't what you would think as a decor for a ship sailing to bright sunny places. I also wish that they would have had more bands at the pool or at least a real dj, not just a guy selecting songs on a cd. Also as a final note, I would recommend Bermuda to anyone. It was a great port of call, with plenty of activities, and very friendly people. The island is expensive though so please make sure to take some extra cash. Less

Cabin review: Carnival Pride Balcony Panorama 8195

The room had a great view and we really enjoyed were it was located on the ship. There is suprisingly a lot of closet space. There were times that you could hear people pushing carts around on the deck above us but it wasn't bad enough to bother us. We enjoyed the room enough to rebook the same room on are next cruise.

Port and Shore Excursions


Baltimore is a great port to cruise out of. The ease of this terminal is unreal. It is located right off of interstate 95 and it is very well organized. When you are ready to go on vacation it is nice to be able to embark quick and easily. It was just as easy to disembark for an easy return home.
