Traveled with hubby, 14 year old and 20 year old. Bought Faster to the Fun. It was well worth it. We didn't have to wait very long to embark; although our port was Baltimore, MD and I've read it's one of the more organized ports from ... Read more

Chose this ship because it went out of Baltimore which was incredibly convenient. Would love to go out of this port again for its convenience and efficiency in parking/boarding. However... this was not the best ship I've been on and it ... Read more

i chose this cruise because I thought it would be one my 7 year old granddaughter would like and the departure port is convenient for us. She did like it but there were some issues I had with the overall cruise. First, about the cabin - ... Read more

We typically go to the beach or fly to an all inclusive island resort in the Caribbean. However this year we decided to "change it up" and take a cruise. We chose Baltimore as our origination point to avoid having to fly. ... Read more

Our cruise on the Carnival Pride was a wonderful for the most part, however, I found the food in the buffet to be subpar....not even edible except for breakfast. The Guys Burgers were great as usual. The soft serve Ice Cream is always a ... Read more

We chose this Carnival cruise because of the convenience of the departure city, the reading of the Pride previous reviews and the selective Port of Calls. We were very impressed with the smooth transition through embarkation and ... Read more

We had 3 families-extended- with a total of 10 people, including 4 kids aged 1, 3, 8 and 8. Because we purchased Faster to the Fun, embarkation went faster. One family had an issue with pictures not working but only had to be taken at a ... Read more

My daughter (21) is moving out and we used this cruise as a bonding trip. We truly enjoyed our whole trip. From the room service PB&J to the lamb chops in the dining room. All the staff was great! We didn't go to the Broadway type ... Read more

This was the third time my family and I have cruised the Pride. Embarkation pretty easy. Arrived at the port @ 11:15, told to come back @ 11: 30, did and we parked. From there through the whole process we were on the ship @ 12:30. Although ... Read more

First the port - Baltimore - It was very easy to get to and they even unload your car for you. Very Nice. The Pride - This is an OLD ship. It needs some serious refurbishing. It does not flow well and there seems to be a lot of wasted ... Read more

In a nutshell, we had a great time and would go on this cruise again if the opportunity presented itself. It's not a perfect cruise, but considering the relatively low price, we were more than happy with what we got. Here are some ... Read more

One of the reasons I booked a cruise from Baltimore was to "sail" down the Chesapeake Bay but since this cruise was delayed by 7 hours, it was dark when that part of the cruise finally happened. I leave on the West Coast now ... Read more

This is our 6th Carnival cruise and the 4th on the Pride. We love the Carnival Spirt Class ships. From the layout to the capacity. This cruise was sold out and we never felt crowded or have to wait long for anything except Muster and ... Read more

My husband and I cruised out of Baltimore on the Pride to Bermuda on July 2nd. This was our second time on this ship, but it previously hadn't had the 2.0 upgrades. The ship has changed some, but most of the Renaissance decor is the same. ... Read more

We chose this cruise because Baltimore is the closest port for us (8 hr drive). I knew the ship was an older one. We loved its size but she is showing her age. Every time we opened our balcony door, we would end up with paint specs on ... Read more

To start, we have never went out of Baltimore prior to going on the Carnival Pride. We went from New York many times, Puerto Rico, and Miami, FL. This one was by far the easiest and fastest port for embarkation and disembarkation. We ... Read more

My husband and I took this cruise, just the 2 of us. It was a celebration for us. We splurged and got an Ocean Suite and thought it was worth every penny. It'll be hard to go back to a "regular" room! This was our 4th cruise, ... Read more
