Carnival Pride

Carnival Pride - Carnival Cruise Line

Pros

Three swimming pools keep crowds down; good dining variety; great entertainment

Cons

Due to the ship's layout, it's hard to get to some areas, and the decor is dated

Bottom Line

The Fun Ship 2.0 additions provide great value without the crowds of larger ships

Within 20 minutes of our home. Second time on the Pride, and we had fun. Wind prevented our last port, Freeport, otherwise, all went well. Best time was the full day in Nassau at the Atlantis, doing everything they offered, aquarium, slides etc. Our waiters in the restaurant were terrific, Hari, Rommell, Ague. We had our table moved from rear to front and Matre de was very helpful. Ship has shown some wear, but that was expected. We knew going in it was about to go to dry dock for some upgrades but it was fine. Dr E, cruise director who we had on, I believe, the Magic was great as always. It was the week before Christmas and festivities and decorations. The show which included the kids from the cruise on stage, was really well done and fun. Entertainment was not very good surprisingly, since the shows were normally better in our other cruises. Read Less

Annual girls cruise with my best friend. We love the Pride which sails from our local homeport in Baltimore. This was just a relaxation cruise for both of us. We had a beautiful day at Princess Cay. Our only complaint is the rocks as we walked into the water, but it's a small price to pay for the beautiful water. We had planned an excursion to parasail in Nassau but it was canceled (our second cancellation) due to high winds. Luckily we were able to book the Balmoral Beach Day excursion in it's place. What a beautiful beach. A different experience from Princess Cay in that there are gentle waves in the waters here. Food is expensive! We missed Freeport due to heavy winds. At points we were in apparent winds over 70 mph. Personally it doesn't bother me and I love the feeling of the ship rocking when going to sleep. The staff planned other events to accommodate the unscheduled sea day. We had an issue with the people in the next cabin smoking on the balcony which made it hard to enjoy our own balcony one evening as the high winds were blowing the smoke in our direction. We notified Guest Services and it was handled very expeditiously. Carnival Guest Services sent a lovely treat to our cabin as a thank you, which was totally unexpected but very much appreciated. We had a variety of food on the Lido Deck and in the Dining Room (no specialty dining) and as always we enjoyed everything. Guys Burgers is always fantastic, and of course Melting Chocolate Cake is unbeatable! Saw a couple of the shows as we had seen them on a previous cruise. Hasbro game show was fun. There was a special holiday show on this cruise which was enjoyable. The entertainers got the children involved on stage. Quest, as usual, was hysterical. The ship was decorated nicely for Christmas ~ it was done subtly in golds, bronzes, and silvers for those of us who celebrate Christmas to enjoy, without being in your face for those who do not celebrate. The Christmas Tree lighting on the first night was fun with everyone singing Christmas Carols, and a celebration later in the week when it snowed in the atrium was awesome. Cruise Director, Rev. Dr. "E" is absolutely fabulous. His exuberance is contagious! Everyone should participate in Groove for St. Jude ~ a very worthy cause. Special kudos to Racel in Guest Services and Aura at the Red Frog Pub. For those sailing in the next 6 or so months, make sure you get to the Red Frog Pub to hear "In the Groove" ~ they are absolutely fantastic!!! Read Less

I chose this cruise because I recently moved close to the port and so many individuals have expressed their love of the ship. I took my father, husband and three children on this cruise and it was our first cruise out of a cold port. We expected some cold weather but not most of the days to be cold but that couldn't be helped by Carnival. The staff to embark was excellent and provided one of the best services we have ever experienced, kudos to the Baltimore port. We would on a balcony cabin on the 7th floor, it was quiet windy and the door to the balcony wouldn't shut all the way, however, they rig it to shut most of the way where we couldn't hear much wind coming in from it, although there was coldness that came through the cracks. The ship definitely needs repairs. We indulged in the steakhouse the first two nights and the service and food was excellent, except they didn't seem to have any drinks to serve you that wasn't wine or a martini, no full bar service. When we retreated to the dining room for the remainder of the cruise, the service was equally excellent and even more accommodating and professional with a full bar service. The entertainment and activities were similar to other carnival cruises, enjoyment and well played out for all ages. The shore excursions seemed a bit pricey for the Bahamas ports, more so than the last time I went to those islands so we opted out of paying those prices and just did our own thing. Princess Cays is operated by Carnival so you don't need an excursion there if all you want to do is rent a cabana or just sit on the beach in those blue chairs. NOTE: Buy snorkeling gear at home to bring or on the ship, ANYTHING is cheaper than renting or buying them on the island. The children enjoyed the cruise, however, my ten year old twins weren't impressed with the kids club for their age, there was not a lot of good activities for them. I would go on the pride again for the excellent port of service and the staff on board but to another location. Read Less
