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 but the cabin itself was very clean and the room steward was great; another think I have come to expect from Carnival. Embarkation in Tampa was fine. We had FTTF and were on the ship by noon. However, our luggage did not arrive until 8 pm! Here I will comment on the reported over 1,000 Diamond and Platinum members on the ship. I believe the staff overall during the 14 days were so overwhelmed with serving the perks of the Diamond and Platinum members, that the rest of us lowly Gold, Red and Blue card members got overlooked. We had YTD, but because there were so many people who requested early dining that could not be accommodated, it was practically impossible to eat before 8 pm in YTD without having to wait 45 minutes for a table. Therefore, we only ate in YTD I believe 3 times on our 14 day cruise. We were hungry before we could get a table so we just ate on Lido for dinner, since the menu was almost the same. Upon debarkation, the FTTF people were held along with the suite people in a private area of the ship, but were not told to debark until after luggage tag 5 was called. We weren't actually told to debark even though we had luggage tag #2, but someone heard #5 called and we all left. The person in charge of us royally goofed. Anyway, the actually debark in Baltimore was fine, except there were absolutely no taxis available by the time we got off the ship. It was in the 20's that morning and we waited probably 45 minutes for a taxi. So, debark in Baltimore was not very good for sure. Anyway, the fact that Carnival sold FTTF spaces with that many Diamond and Platinum guests was a big mistake, IMHO and I believe it was a waste of money. All of the ports were great! Weather was perfect in Cozumel, Costa Rica, going through the Panama Canal, Aruba, Bonaire and St. Maarten. We just took a cab to Paradise Beach in Cozumel, had a private tour in Costa Rica (awesome), took a cab to the Butterfly Garden in Aruba, shopped and went on the sunset cruise in the afternoon (awesome), rented a golf cart in Bonaire and went on a 2 beach private tour in St. Maarten. I will say that besides the Panama Canal being a highlight, we wish that Costa Rica would have been a longer stop. There was also an issue with getting off the ship in Costa Rica because everybody wanted to get off at once because of the short day. We had a wonderful tour, but with the ship being in port only from 11 am to 5 pm made it a very rushed day and it is such a beautiful country! It was very windy in all ports except for Costa Rica and excursions in Aruba and St. Maarten were cancelled. Since we only ate in the dining room 2 or 3 times, I cannot comment on the wait staff really. The food on Lido was just OK and we always could find something to eat, but the Chinese food was pretty bad and there were none of those boneless breaded chicken fingers to be found anywhere on the Pride. We even asked the chef, who told us in no uncertain terms that they would not be served on Lido ever and we were told to go to the MDR. So, we went to the MDR and were told they only had the chicken strips but we had to order them a day ahead of time. We did this a couple of times and made them a take out order, but they were very small and I think had a Panko crust that was very thin. I never heard so many people complaining about the food choices on a cruise for dinner as on this cruise. Many guests called them "weird food" and I would agree that there were some strange things on the menu. Lots of pork dishes, lamb, very little pasta, dry seafood, beef dishes were generally tough and very little chicken. I only saw turkey one night and it wasn't the night of the American Feast. Thank goodness for guys burgers, salads and fresh fruit! There was a noticeable lack of bar staff wandering around the Lido except for embarkation day. It was always easy to find a deck chair except for Serenity. The wait staff in the bars was pretty good, but it didn't seem like this was a drinking crowd because the bars were rarely full. The entertainment in the Taj Mahal was pretty dismal. The Playlist Productions were not good. We have seen these productions on other ships and on the Pride they did not met my expectations. The special acts they brought on because it was a Journeys cruise were great. Adam in the Piano bar was OK. The other singers around the ship were OK, but the young woman who sang like Joni Mitchell and played the guitar really got on my nerves. It seemed wherever I went, she was there singing. They had her and another singer on the Serenity Deck for a few hours a day also. It's supposed to be quiet on Serenity, IMHO. Nice string duo playing around the ship. Overall the Pride seems tired. It was very clean, but it is showing wear. Examples, there were many floor tiles loose in the Lido area that were not fixed, worn carpets, scratches and dents in various areas of the ships. The CD, Steve from Canada also seemed tired. The Fun Shops didn't have much of a variety of merchandise and it seemed like a lot of wasted space. We love the layout and different areas of the Spirit Class, but the Pride needs an update. The one shining spot for the Journeys cruise was the Academy of Fun classes run by Tom Parks. Very informative, and we learned a lot from him Tom is also very approachable and if you had a question or wanted further information, he was always around to talk to. The 80's throwback day was also fun. Overall, we had a great time and were not disappointed with the itinerary, which is generally why we choose a cruise. The other passengers were very friendly to us, but there were grumblings among them about the food, entertainment, condition of the ship and some were very rude to the staff. We would take the Pride again since it is only a 6 hour drive for us, but the normal itineraries out of Baltimore are not very great and it needs an update. We rate this cruise very good, mostly because of the itinerary. Read Less

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 glass, floor and seats. Then when they washed the balcony down there were floating paint chips that stuck to everything. We have sailed on the Pride previously and had a great experience. This time not so much. Female entertainer was off key every time she performed. The only good singer was Marcus Anthony who came on board at 1 port. Shows were quite amateurish from other cruises. Dining we requested to sit with 6 cotravellers and asked 4 weeks in advance and could not be accommodated. Met new friends but watched our party of 6 at every dinner. Matree'd was of no help.

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 easy to maneuver. You can walk from one end of the ship to the other on the same deck. The only problem with this ship is that the Casino can become very smoky. This cruise went to Grand Turk which is a nice place to relax on the beach right by the cruise pier. The next port was Amber Cove. This was the first time to visit this port. Carnival has a nice port with shops, pools similar to Grand Turk, restaurants and bars, a sky bar with outstanding views and a zip line that is above the swimming pools. Next port was Cartagena, Columbia. This was a beautiful city with modern high rises and the old walled city. The walled city had houses, shops and restaurants similar to San Juan. Our next stop was a trip through the Panama Canal where we anchored and then traveled through the canal a few hours later back into the Caribbean. The passage was very informative and unique to see the ship and other ships being raised in the locks to a higher level to enter Gatun lake and then lowered when returned to enter the Caribbean. Our next port was Limon, Costa Rica. This port is full of different adventures. We chose to go zip lining and a boat exploring the canals. The zip lining had twelve different lines and was a great adventure. On the canal tour we were able to see different birds, howler monkeys, spider monkeys, sloths, an alligator and a cayman. The next port was Cozumel, Mexico. This port also had many excursions. The port area was loaded with shops, bars and restaurants. The only problem was that there were nine ships in port and the area was crowded. Our last stop was where the ship was repositioned in Tampa. Great cruise, but would have been better if the ship had sailed back to Baltimore. Read Less

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 goes on to get a boat in and out of the locks. Entertainment was OK. Really enjoyed the lounge singers, especially the Musical Nomads and Acoustical Brad. In the piano bar, Brad was great, just watch out for the late night if you are easily offended. The selections in the Main dining room were delicious. Good choices and the regional foods made it difficult to select some nights. The Main dining room staff for dine on your own time were great. Bajon, Awa were attentive and set the tone for both of their teams. All in all a good time. Met some good people, visited some good ports and saw beautiful sun sets. Read Less

This was our fifth time on the Pride and was grateful for the changes from the "same old thing". Embarkation in Tampa was a breeze! Many folks ignore recommendations and insist on arriving at the pier at 930-10am and then get annoyed when they have to wait to board. We arrived around 1230pm and was on the ship within 25-30 minutes. We walked right on after getting our s&s cards....no line whatsoever. Ship: Loved the new upgrades. Some areas of the ship still really need to be repaired/painted but the 2.0 ares looked amazing. New areas definitely looked a lot more classy/polished than the old parts of the ship. Food: Guys Burgers were great after getting back on board, good burgers/fries and very quick service. Burrito/taco bar was a tasty alternative as well. It is only open for breakfast and lunch. Deli was good as always as was the pizza. MDR was good to very good. Steak house was very good but not as good as I remembered it. Buffet was VERY poor in my opinion. Caribbean stew and jerk chicken were good but found everything else I tried bland and luke-warm at best. Chopstix Asian buffet has some nice spicy offerings. Cabins: As expected, cabin was clean and well-maintained. Steward did a great job as usual. We had an obstructed balcony cabin for the first time but will spend the extra and get regular balcony from now on. Lifeboats made noise and being on deck 5 above dining room area you could smell smoke from below at times. No more obstructed for us. Entertainment: Ships shows were good, I don't get into musicals etc but they were still entertaining. Comedians ranged from very good to horrible. There were 8 different comedians over the 14 days. The final comedian we watched had approx 40 people walk out during his performance because he just simply was not funny. Most were good for a few laughs though. Staff: Amazing. Staff was great! Alchemy Bar bartenders are a must see! Debarkation: We were off the ship with no problems. Apparently there was a long delay right after us so many people were inconvenienced but we got lucky. The Good: New areas look great, addition of the dive-in under the stars was a nice option on such a long cruise, enjoy the band/dj at the main pool but the could change the song selection up a bit more. The Bad: Many people on board were sick, including us. I am amazed when the staff are all pushing the sanitizer on us and promoting safe hand washing etc and I still see men walk out of the washrooms without washing their hands or people coughing in/around the buffet stations etc Who raises these people? The buffet food deserves another mention here. Wow, was it bad. I tried the Asian buffet for the first time ever and glad I did as the rest of the buffet was tasteless and borderline cold. Love spicy food! Passengers: Chair hogs were running wild. We didn't bother with Serenity as it was jammed and those seats that were "empty" were "reserved". Table hogs-This one is new to me but on the last sea day when it was too cold to sit outside we witnessed several groups holding card tournaments in the buffet seating areas while countless numbers of folks walked around carrying their plates looking to sit down and eat. If you want to play cards go somewhere else....maybe the card room? Most people we encountered were great, fun people. What on Earth is with everyone announcing their Platinum/Diamond status to anyone who will listen within earshot? I experienced it on Royal but this group put all others to shame. Loved the Pride and her now options. Have sailed exclusively Spirit Class ships to date so really looking forward to the Dream in January. Read Less

I have only been cruising for 18 months and the cruise on the Carnival Pride was my ninth cruise. We booked this cruise one month before while on the Carnival Fascination. I live in Jacksonville Florida and rented a car to get to Tampa. My wife and I left the night before and stopped at a Hampton Inn & Suite in Wesley Chapel. I used the Carnival transfer bus to get from the airport to the ship terminal. The bus was waiting and it only took us about 15 minutes before we were on our way. They had us down for late dinner seating so once on the ship we went to get it changed to any time dining. We wanted early dining but that wasn’t available. Embarkation at the ship was very organized and didn’t take long at all. The guy at the terminal with the microphone was very funny and made the wait pleasant. As a bonus, the senior Carnival Cruise Director John Heald was at the terminal and he got on the microphone and had us all laughing. This was our first time to the Tampa terminal and I was surprised how quick we got on the ship. Our stateroom 1140 was ready around noon. Bags were delivered around 1 pm. The ship was delayed getting out of port, we were told because of the large amount of supplies being loaded. The amount of people doing anytime dining on this cruise was unbelievable. The lines to eat were very long. Dinner was good but not as good as I’ve had on other Carnival ships. A few times the food was not hot enough. Other times the food was chewy. Some dishes were outstanding, just inconsistent. The desert menu was not varied like on other Carnival ships. I just would have liked to see more pies or cakes. The staff personnel on the ship were very friendly. Our cruise director Jason (Jase) Apps did a great job. This guy has so much energy and is fun to be around. I have cruised with Jase before and he is my favorite cruise direct so far. This was a special cruise with John Heald onboard. I would go on another cruise if he was onboard, he is that good. I didn’t see my stateroom steward much, but if I left the room, even for a little while, he would have my room clean when I returned. What more could you ask for. We did three shore excursions with Carnival and they were all good. In Grand Cayman we went on the deluxe stingray tour and I would do this one again. I would highly recommend taking a shore excursion in Colon Panama and Limon Costa Rica. Right around the port area in both those countries was not that great, but get out and see farther away from the port and you will be happy you visited these beautiful countries. In Limon we took the Bus, Boat, and Train tour. We went to the rain forest and visited a banana farm. We took a boat ride were they showed us a lot of wild life and fed us fruit. We went on an old train and stopped along the way when they spotted monkeys. Take a camera there were so many photo opportunities. In Colon we did the City Tour which took us by bus all the way across Panama to Panama City. We stopped at a local straw market and had time to ourselves to shop. This tour was 5.5 hours and well worth the price. The big show dancers/singers were alright. I’ve seen better, so I stopped going to the song and dance performances. The other entertainers were very good. They brought in different comedians every few days and these comedians were very funny. They had plenty of other performers and all were top notch. Disembarkation in Baltimore was a lot of confusion for most. We had to move to another place to get off the ship than what we were originally told. Customs personnel were not manning all the available desks and they were going very slow. We had a lot of fun on this cruise. I really like the layout of the Pride. Overall this was a very good cruise and I would gladly do it again. Read Less

Best cruise I've been on! Fourteen days was perfect for us. The Pride was making its way back to Baltimore and many of the passengers were from Maryland and wanted to travel on her return home. There were only 40 children onboard which made the whole ship adult friendly. We were told the average age of cruisers was 62. The only bad part was there was no late night life aboard, the night club open for two days only (the first two days). But the ship was always clean and the staff was very friendly and attentive. We were told by other guests that Carnival not only remodeled the Pride but changed its staff for better service. Both were greatly appreciated! I see that Carnival has scheduled this cruise for 2017. I am hoping I can be on it. Many of the ports it went we had not gone before and would like to revisit. Read Less

We have been on the Pride previous to the 2.0 upgrades and it was just ok. This time my experience was much different. The upgrades added greatly to my experience. The food choices and quality were much better. The venues were a great addition. I would have liked to see "Pub Grub' offered in the Red Frog Pub though.... The room still is in need of some upgrades, like a flat screen TV. The toilet had a long delay and the light in the bathroom took forever to turn on. The entertainment was the best I have ever experienced on any cruise I have taken. As, well as the entertainment staff. Although I didn't care for the new CD, Jase, the rest of the staff was great! The Gym has completely new equipment with tv's on each of the cardio equipment. The ports and weather were fantastic. Our favorite port being Bonaire! Disembarkment in Baltimore is the same as always, very slow. Nothing to do with Carnival, but Baltimore needs to figure out the kinks because it took over 3 1/2 hours. I am already excited to see the Pride again next year for the Journey cruise in March!!!!!!!!!! Read Less

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, apparently done at the end of 2014. The Carnival mobile phone app and hub does not yet work on this ship. Embarkation in Tampa was easy and pretty quick. Debarkation in Baltimore was fine for us, but we heard from others that it took hours and hours! We had late dining and experienced great service from our 3 member team, of note Roy, Tony and Yasa. Food was good to very good but not as good as it was on our last cruise 12 years ago. The addition of the more casual dining stops was new for us (again, it’s been 12 years). My only complaint was their pretty limiting hours. The casual food places (buffet (various short hours stints throughout the day), Guy’s Burgers (noon to 6PM only), Blue Iguana, Pizza Pirate (somewhat short hours), and the Deli (11A-11P) offered good choices. In my opinion, at least Guy’s burgers should be open for those who have late seating and wish to have a burger. Guy’s makes great burgers with great condiments. The Deli made great sandwiches! Kudo’s to Okky who worked in the deli most of the times we were there. Pizza Pirate was only okay, but it usually took a while to get food. Breakfast in the buffet was pretty standard offerings, with lots of choices so you could enjoy something different each day (cereal, yogurt, eggs, toast, bacon, ham, sausage, eggs benedict, pancakes, French toast, waffles, omelets, various fruits, Danish, muffins and other pastries) along with the made to order breakfast burritos from Blue Iguana. Many of the evening activities started way before the diners who had late dining were done with their dinner. PORTS: Grand Cayman: Our group had a pre-arranged, non-Carnival, island tour. Was great! Costa Rica: Our group had two pre-arranged, non-Carnival, tours. First was an island and river tour. Had a great time and learned a lot. Lots of native plants and creatures to see. Second was zip lining. What a great time that was! Worth every bit of the $75. p/p. Panama: Because of the nature of Panama, we took a Carnival tour. We opted for the Kayak and Canal Locks combo tour. This was fantastic. We had a nice bus to transport us. First we kayaked around the canal lake. Yes, you’re gonna get wet on this. Dress appropriately in a swim suit, water shoes and leave valuables like your phone and more, in the chase boat. After this, we took the bus to the canals. What a great site to see! Highly recommended! Aruba: we took a private island tour on a Kukoo bus. Great time! Bonaire: Island tour through a private company. What a beautiful island! St Maarten: Island tour on a boat accompanied with snorkeling in several spots. The staterooms are nice. Room Steward, Winn, was great! The beds are comfortable. AC wasn’t quite adequate enough to keep the room cool to cold, especially at night and also when the sun was against the windowed door. Our room had about a 27” flat panel LED TV. Most of the time the channels worked, but at critical times (like March Madness), we lost reception on some channels. (DirecTV is the ship’s provider.) None of the channels in the room were HD. ESPN is not available in the rooms, but is on in the Casino and Sport Bar (I think they want you down there spending money and not in your room). Refrigerator in the room was okay. We kept our drinks and water in there and took out the bar supplies they had inside to make it a mini-bar. Unless the cabinet door was left open, the refrigerator could not keep up because the heat got stuck inside the cabinet. The ship’s on-board shops have the standard stuff – high priced alcohol that you can’t even use or drink on the ship and the other token stuff. Bar service around the ship was great! The only thing which bugged me was the person vending specialty drinks in the dining room. Everyday something different for some exorbitant price. We had the best service and the nicest people on the Serenity deck bar. We enjoyed this cruise enough that we rebooked for next year. Read Less

We very much looked forward to this cruise and it lived up to our hopes and then took flight! My spouse and I have never taken such a long cruise, and very much looked forward to the 7 days at sea. And 4 of the 6 ports were new for us. We were blessed to travel with two friends that were by nature curious and very smart (ok me and three Librarians from NC, all in 50-65 range) and then the frosting came when we found out 4 weeks out that John Heald (Brand Ambassador for Carnival) would be aboard. Planning- My only planning issue was the Cruise Critic Roll Call. Granted it started over 1 year out and it was a huge list (so big it had to be split 3 months out). I do wish there was some way to limit posts to those about the cruise or ports involved. Often there were pages of entries that never mentioned the cruise. Trip down- We found a rental car the best option. We stayed at Holiday Inn West Shore, enjoyed their restaurant and added a day to see the Florida Aquarium. It was a fun way to start the cruise. Take the cab to the ship, avoid the Hotel shuttle as it costs more and has less room. Boarding- Tampa has a great process. As Platinum VIFP we were on and in our cabin in about 45 minutes. We enjoy watching the shopping square near the ship. They have a slushy store for mixed drinks! Cabin 6151 is a hidden secret. Set back a few feet from the cabins in front of it, the wind is less, and the fun of a balcony is enhanced. Our Steward, Muktika Hary, was a kind, prompt and cheerful young man. Kept us in ice and spruced up digs! Could not ask for better Dining- Of 13 CCL cruises I have had MDR seating issues 2 times. Both involved the Matri'D Ken Burnes (?) I really do not care for him, my problem. We stopped at MDR to point out our issues, and by the 2nd meal we were seated as desired, thanks Jana! Our wait staff were the best ever- our Head Waiter was Milan, wonderful service, humor and yes he danced. His assistants were Putu, Edsel were just as wonderful. An added happy circumstance was that we used the MDR for breakfasts this trip and met Stanimir, another Head waiter, very affable and kind and a friend of Milan. How lucky were we? Food was only average - the two chefs were both from India and they were working on the European menus. Much of the food was very tasty but OMG NEVER call that Pecan Pie, NEVER! for shame, David's Steak house- What a wonderful experience. Exquisite flavors and presentations. SHows- 88 keys was phenomenal, absolutely the very best. Well done CCL Cast. We discovered the trivia games, what fun. We went to several, enjoyed the questions and the Hosts! CD- Jase was probably the best I have seen. Great solo and put him on a stage with the redoubtable Mr Heald and oh my goodness! He takes second seat to no one. Always lively, happy and kind. Hope to shre his boat again Ports- Grand Cayman- Not a favorite from 2 prior visits yet this visit was magical. Now the Lovely Susan has a new high priority port of call Puerto Limon, Costa Rice- We did the Cacao Experience and if you can do it, RUN for it. A quiet drive to the "plantation". Cacao grows in the rain forest and these folks take you from leaf to bud to blossom to processing chocolate. Yup they make it as you watch then you get to dine. We saw monkeys, a crock or caiman. And beautiful forest Colon - Panama the 2 ocean train got cancelled so we went with the ECO Tour- I am so glad we did. We saw the Gaytun locks in operation, then we took a boat on Lake Gaytun. What a Marvel of beauty. We base out of the School of the Americas and then saw Monkeys, crocks and a Momma Sloth with her baby on her tummy Aruba- Closes on Sunday at 1PM. But that was ok We shopped and had fun Bonaire- Great excursion to a hotel for swimming- The water was beautiful and chill enough to be invigorating. Phillipsburg, St Maarten- One of our favorites, always. This time we took the Island tour and it was quite fun. Overall- can't leave without mentioning John Heald's Marriage show. This will make your day and maybe your cruise. John we love you! Best cruise ever Read Less
