My wife and I had not been on a cruise for several years and were just about to schedule one when COVID hit. We chose the Panama Canal trip as we wanted to go places that we had never been before and the canal was an opportunity of a lifetime! Due to the nature of this cruise there were only 2 port days, on in Limon, Costa Rica and the other in Grand Cayman. Organization for Limon was well done ...

After 23 months, I was so ready to get back out on the open seas. Had never been on the Pride, but had been on one of her sister ships. So I was familiar with the ship’s layout. Easy to navigate. Glad that we could walk through the casino without having to smell cigarette smoke. I only ate in the MDR for breakfast. Two of the days were for Seaday brunch. Service was excellent and attentive. ...

This is my 17th Carnival Cruise Line cruise and fourth on the Carnival Pride which used to sail from Baltimore, MD, now it sails out of Tampa FL. Embarkment was a little slow going due to a lack of wheelchair pushers for my wife, once we did get on we went to the Lido deck for their buffet. The food offerings at the embarkment buffet had limited offerings and I would have to rate the variety ...

I never cruised Carnival and dont think I will again. The one positive experience was the ship staff! These people work their tails off and are SO helpful and so nice!!! I hope they are paid well because if it weren't for them, this review would be a 1 or less! Food - Horrible! I was going to eat a specialty restaurants on board, but my first few meals at the buffet made me think that it ...

This was the cruise I choose after the pandemic hit and my original cruise was canceled. The only plus was the $600 onboard credit that we received for booking and the wonderful crew (Stewarts and servers). The singers and performers tried to act and sing, and the magician was hard to understand and used beginner's tricks. There just wasn't enough entertainment provided on this ship. The ...

Went on my first cruise, carnival pride and was not impressed at all, the food was subpar and some of the staff didn’t seem like they wanted to help and seemed bothered if I stopped them to ask a question. Our neighbors had there kids unattended running up and down halls all night and slamming doors and we reported it several times and finally the day before we got home the noise stopped. So many ...

I booked this cruise because it went out of Baltimore and it was the best deal I could find. I had very low expectations, and just wanted to get away for a week with my family, see some new places, and not have to cook or clean. The Carnival Pride surpassed my expectations in every way. The musicals at night were awesome. Our cabin was perfect. My kids had so much fun in the pool and doing the ...

We went on this cruise over New Year's. The first 2 sea days were very bumpy. THis was because of a storm. Carnival's embarkation process was very smooth. The safety brief at the beginning of the cruise was also very simple. We had a lot of fun over the 7 days that we were on the ship. The dining room staff needed some training, but the main waiter was great. The bars were a slight disappointment ...

I chose this cruise because I wanted to get away for Christmas. Horrible, will never use carnival pride. Needs to be retired along with the horrible food and service. One African American woman was discourteous all of the time for breakfast. The show's were for amateurs. The casino only gave free drinks after 1500 ppints. The kids on the ship were knocking on doors randomly, ...

My boyfriend and I live in PA and we drove to Baltimore for this cruise trip. Embarkation and disembarkation were relatively smooth although we did have to wait in line for everything. Driving in Baltimore was slightly confusing even with the help of Google Maps, but the cruise terminal was relatively easy to find. We had to line up for parking. It was our first time cruising and overall it ...
