Was on the Journey’s cruise 14 days from Tampa ending in Baltimore. This is my 8th cruise with Carnival and have been on NCL and RCCL. I have done a 15 day to Hawaii with Carnival so we kind of knew what to expected. Wife and I are late 20’s, early 30’s. I think we only had a handful of people in our age group and almost no kids on this cruise. Most passengers 50+ or even 60+. Having some issues ...

We chose this cruise as going to the Panama Canal was on my bucket list. My great grandfather had actually worked building the original canal and I wanted to experience it for myself. There were 4 of us adults in an extended balcony cabin on deck 7. The cabin itself was fine; plenty of storage for the 4 of us as I have come to expect with a Carnival ship. There were some dents and scratches ...

When we decided to go to the Panama Canal (bucket list thing) Carnival didn't have an itinerary that included the canal so we booked on another line. When we saw that the Pride would be making the trip, we changed our reservations for three families to Carnival. We are Carnival people! The staff on the pride were GREAT!. Really enjoyed the extra things that come with a "Journeys" cruise like ...

Great Itinerary, Disappointing 2nd Pride Trip

We chose this cruise for its itinerary and were not disappointed with that. However found the Pride was the worst of any ship on our 14 cruises. 2 nights had nothing appealing to 4 of the 6 at our table. The other couple were first timers so had nothing to compare to. Room steward was great Jomel met our every need. However, our room balcony had paint splatter all over the lacquered railing ...

Cruised before on the Pride, usually doing the Eastern Caribbean. The ship is a medium size ship that hold approximately 2,700 passengers. The ship was renovated in 2014 with Carnivals 2.0 upgrades. The older art that was on the ship was replaced with a more modern try of décor. Guys burger join, Iguana cantina, Red frog bar, Alcoy bar and a sushi restaurant were added. The ship was clean and ...

We chose this cruise for a Panama Canal experience,& the other ports looked quite interesting. Being interested in art,we were challenged by the decor,displayed on the sight. Heard good reviews about "Journey" cruising ,so decided to give it a go and we were not disappointed!! We like copper as a embellishment , so we just loved all the copper accents around the ship & the Sea Theme was ...

We chose this cruise because it was on the Pride which is a Spirit-class ship. We love these ships because of the great layout and their smaller size: only about 2000 passengers. We also loved the itinerary because of the visit to Cartagena and the partial transit of the Panama Canal. The Cruise Director was Steve and he was great, providing us information that we had never gotten before even ...

We chose this cruise for the journey experience and was not disappointed. This was a great cruise, good locations to visit . This was also the best Carnival Crew I have ever had. From my room steward, Veronica, Head waiter Bajon, and Bartenderes Jo Ann (piano bar) and Maria at alcameny, they were the best. The panamal canal experience was wonderful. Had done before but it is amazing what ...

we took this journey one-way 13 day cruise from Baltimore to Tampa because of it's itinerary, what a great choice. we had been on the Pride abt 8 yrs before and remembered what a not-too-big ship it was. great improvements, small size (2100 guests). all stops were good. save maybe Cozumel. only because of the irritatingly-narrow gift shop you had to walk thru both ways) and the crowds ...

We sailed on the 14 night repositioning cruise from Tampa to Baltimore with stops in Grand Cayman, Costa Rica, Panama, Aruba, Bonaire and St Maarten. The ship with the new Funship 2.0 upgrades is well maintained with lots of new additions. Embarkation in Tampa was easy once it started (there was a bit of delay and they didn’t allow us to drop off until after 11am). Debarkation in Baltimore was a ...
