In a nutshell, we had a great time and would go on this cruise again if the opportunity presented itself. It's not a perfect cruise, but considering the relatively low price, we were more than happy with what we got. Here are some ... Read more

This is our 6th Carnival cruise and the 4th on the Pride. We love the Carnival Spirt Class ships. From the layout to the capacity. This cruise was sold out and we never felt crowded or have to wait long for anything except Muster and ... Read more

My husband and I cruised out of Baltimore on the Pride to Bermuda on July 2nd. This was our second time on this ship, but it previously hadn't had the 2.0 upgrades. The ship has changed some, but most of the Renaissance decor is the same. ... Read more

We really had a great time, our room Stewart was great he ask if we wanted morning or evening cleaning or both, we said both no problems, we had early dining and our wait staff was superb. And we ate Guy's burger very good. The shows were ... Read more

Actually, it's our 1st Carnival Cruise in 4 years. Have been sailing on RCL the past few years and wanted a change of pace and this cruise fit our schedule better. Plus we were getting back on the "FUN" Ship. Embarkation - Slow ... Read more

We chose this cruise because Baltimore is the closest port for us (8 hr drive). I knew the ship was an older one. We loved its size but she is showing her age. Every time we opened our balcony door, we would end up with paint specs on ... Read more

My husband and I went on our first cruise this summer on June 4 through June 11 on the Carnival Pride out of Baltimore. The embarkation process was a breeze. Baltimore is very easy to access and the porters and embarkation employees were ... Read more

Everything was perfect. We had a great time. We arrived early, had no problems parking, boarding and enjoyed the entire week. We have cruised several times in the past but this was our first time leaving from Baltimore. My husband recently ... Read more

To start, we have never went out of Baltimore prior to going on the Carnival Pride. We went from New York many times, Puerto Rico, and Miami, FL. This one was by far the easiest and fastest port for embarkation and disembarkation. We ... Read more

My husband and I took this cruise, just the 2 of us. It was a celebration for us. We splurged and got an Ocean Suite and thought it was worth every penny. It'll be hard to go back to a "regular" room! This was our 4th cruise, ... Read more

Where do I begin? My family and I have cruised four times previously, the most recent being Holland America to Alaska. Each cruise was on a different line and destination. We do have an idea what to expect, so anything less than those ... Read more

Carnival Pride is definitely a ship showing some age (launched 2001) and is in need of some clean-up and touch-up (many rust stains all over the ship). We chose the Memorial Day week sailing as it fit with the school vacation schedule. ... Read more

This was only our second cruise on the Pride and really love the ship and crew. We live in Maryland and have done 5 other cruises out of Florida but have the Pride booked for next year to Bermuda. First time in Half Moon Cay and loved it. ... Read more

I took my very first cruise on Carnival Pride out of Baltimore to Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay and Freeport. I had a blast. I had a Ocean View room on the first floor 1212. I was surprised I expected a smaller room and a small bathroom. Being ... Read more

First of all, the port of Baltimore was awesome. easy and uncrowded. We did have a late arrival though so maybe we missed crowds but getting off was a breeze thru customs. We used Orlando before and this was a HUGE difference for the ... Read more

Getting on the ship was such a breeze. Hardly any waiting, very organized and was on the ship before we knew it. We had a great time and did a bit of everything. Shows and comedians were good. My husband did the Behind the Scenes Tour and ... Read more

This was our fourth cruise, our third on the Pride. We took with us our best friends for their first cruise. My husband Danny and my friend Sandy both needed mobility scooters and wheelchair help. We also had purchased Faster to the ... Read more

The reason for this cruise was to scatter my husband's ashes. He and I were avid cruisers and his wish was to be scattered at sea so he could be "fish food". Our favorite cruise lines were Celebrity and Holland America, but ... Read more

Is was our third bi-annual Spring Break cruise with grand-kids. Sailing from Baltimore is great since the port is only 40 minutes from our home. We opted for Ocean Suites this time around since the little ones aren't so little any ... Read more

This is my second time on the Pride. We love the Pride! My husband and I were disappointed with the singers on the cruise. We felt their voices were just average (perhaps we were just spoiled from our first cruise when the entertainers ... Read more

We choose this cruise based upon the dates and location of the port. It was the kids (ages 15 & 17) spring break and being based out of Baltimore meant that we didn't have to fly. Embarkation and Disembarkation were so smooth and ... Read more

This was our first Carnival cruise and it exceeded our expectations. Previously, we had cruised on NCL quite a few times along with Royal Caribbean and Celebrity. We chose Baltimore because it is within driving distance and significantly ... Read more

The staff and crew of The Pride is just plain outstanding. Wonderful. I don't have a single complaint. After a few days you feel like old friends. The decor is a bit weird, on board entertainment is just so-so (not for lack of effort or ... Read more

This cruise was our fifth cruise on the Pride; my 21st cruise and DH's 23rd. Our most recent cruises have been with Carnival, but we've also cruised with other cruise lines (Celebrity, RCCL, NCL, Cunard). I will add though, we've been ... Read more
