Review for Carnival Pride to Caribbean - Western

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 ...

Very Peaceful and Fun Cruise

The cruise was running at restricted levels which made the trip very pleasant. The cruise through the canal was delightful as we were able to see the locks from many different location. They did have crowds on the front decks and some people brought chairs and sat through the locks but most people were very courteous. I compare this to pre covid trip back in 2019 and the front of the ship was just ...

My wife and I characterize ourselves as seasoned cruisers having been on over 15 of them over the years. We took a few years off but now that we retired, we're back at sea. The cruise left Tampa on a Saturday and arrived back eight days later on a Sunday. We had taken advantage of a great casino promo code linked to our VIFP accounts and got an obstructed view balcony and a fair amount of ...

WORST CRUISE EVER COMPLETE WASTE TIME AND MONEY!

By FAR the worst we've been on Guest services are unbelievably rude, and have nasty attitudes. The food was TERRIBLE (I even found a tree LEAF in the gravy and the chef shrugged it off and continued to serve it!) The whole cruise was EXTREMELY boring, no poolside games and contests everyday or any kind of fun games and activities around and inside the ship other than some TERRIBLE trivia. The ...

My wife and I took this cruise to celebrate my 69th birthday. It was anything but the stress free experience we anticipated. We were surprised upon lining up to embark with the announcement that we had to have a covid test prior to boarding, despite the fact that we were both fully vaccinated. Had they told us beforehand this was needed, we could have gotten one free at our local CVS, as we're ...

Just returned from a 7-day Caribbean cruise on Carnival Pride, out of Tampa, FL. This was our first cruise since Covid, and it was so nice to be out and about again! In most areas of the ship, masks were required but the majority of passengers wore them wrong (below the nose) or wore them sporadically. Don't count on other people's compliance with mask mandates to keep you from getting Covid; ...

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 ...

Our experience on the Carnival Pride was wonderful. We have sailed with Carnival for over 20 years. This was our Best cruise by far.. Our room steward Michael went above and beyond from the time we got in our stateroom until we left this morning. The food and service in the dinning room was delicious. We never had to wait in-line for anything. The entire crew was the Best of the Best. Our Cruise ...

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 ...

I knew this was going to be an older ship, so I didn't expect a whole lot. I loved that it was not packed with guests because it only holds about 2300 guests. The decor was definitely dated and the food left a lot to be desired. The excursions however were fantastic. We booked an excursion for every port except Grand Cayman. The refrigerator in the state room did not cool the drinks enough ...
