First of all, let me state that the crew, food, room and general amenities of the ship were all very good. However, the cruise itinerary was not what it should have been. The cruise was a 5 day from Baltimore to Bermuda. Understandably Royal Caribbean cannot control the weather. However, they can inform, explain, and give options to their customers. They do not do this. The ship left the port an hour earlier, because according to the Captain, the coast guard was going to close the Chesapeake Bay. If this was so, why not give the customers the option of leaving the ship as opposed to taking them out to very bad ocean conditions ? 24 hours of rocking and rolling and half of the guests and crew were sea sick we finally docked in Bayonne NJ. So Bermuda turned into New York City. I have researched and the cruise the week before mine and the week after mine had the same trip. Royal Caribbean states they cannot control hurricane conditions - but they made the most of 3 cruises going only to NYC. They could have cancelled the cruise and spared the people on board a lot of sickness and anxiety. Instead they took them on a very rough ride and disappointing destination. They offered a "certificate" for a future cruise that excludes "port and taxes" which is roughly 70% of the original fee. Because the deception of misleading those on board - to believe this was not planned but happenstance - I have lost trust in Royal Caribbean. I imagine others feel the same, so the offer is not as generous as it seems. I will never cruise Royal Caribbean again. Read Less

My wife and I were driving home from our jobs in D.C. and heard on the radio that Carnival had a two night "Cruise to Nowhere" leaving Baltimore on the very next day. It seams that the Carnival Pride had to cancel it's regular run due to the big storm Hurricane Sandy. After the storm passed and with the ship just sitting there Carnival decided they would do a short two night cruise out to the end of the Chesapeake bay and back. No ports, just sea. This was our first cruise. We had the two of us and my 4 year old daughter. Short review; we had a great time. From checking in to checking off the ship it was all stress free and smooth. The ship is beautiful. I am a retired Navy Chief and I know what it takes to keep a big ship maintained and I was impressed with the cleanliness and the state of preservation. Everything shined. Staff was very pleasant. Food was good, diverse and plentiful. My daughter had a great time in the Club Carnival. We only used it for a couple hours on each day but I think it was the highlight for her. The only downside was the time it took to get served in the MDR. It was two hours from seating to leaving and that's just to long to keep a four year old tied down. Carnival was smart to make this short cruise. Lot's of first timers as it was so convenient to just take off on a weekend and do this, and the rates were cheap. Inside SR were $99. I will definitely cruise again. Read Less

This was a short 2 Night Cruise to Nowhere that was available due to the full week cruise being cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy. We had 3 cabins, which all had the exact same problems. The in-cabin phones were down the whole cruise, making it hard to report the following other issues. On day 1 and 3, the toilets were down for 15-20 minutes. On day 2, the toilets were down for about 3 hours. The whole hallway stunk because people were using the toilets without realizing they could not flush. Also on day 2, as we woke up, the water was unavailable for several hours. Therefore we couldn't take showers or wash-up. Reporting these issues to on-board customer service staff resulted in a "were sorry, but you will have to live with it attitude". We had better luck with calling Carnival after the cruise to report the problems. The food on the Carnival Pride is comparable to what you would find at a Golden Corral Buffet. The food in the main dining hall is slightly better, but not much. The steak house is amazing, on par with 4 or 5 star restaurants. Camp Carnival was similar to a typical daycare. Not bad, but nowhere near the offerings by Disney or Carnival. All that being said, you can not beat the price of sailing on Carnival Pride. It is a great value, especially if you live in Maryland. For that reason, I will definately book again. As a side note, the last time I was on the Carnival, it almost capsized (literally). At least they keep it interesting! Read Less
