This was our first cruise and we were a bit nervous but aside from being sea sick the first day at sea, we had an awesome time. Here's a breakdown: Embarkation -- Standing in line for almost two hours was a real pain but we had no real ... Read more

This was a trip with our kids and six teenaged grandkids. I was a little tentative about this cruise line but was blown away by how nice it was. The port of Baltimore was VERY efficient with convenient, secure parking right by the ship. ... Read more

We chose this cruise for a few reasons: This is our 4th year traveling at Christmas, we wanted to go somewhere warm(er), the port is 2 hours from our home, and the ship was not overly large. This was definitely a good choice. We got an ... Read more

We started with Carnival and tried others. We loved being back on Carnival because there is so much more to do, especially trivia, which some of us love. The food was excellent in the Restaurant and some of us loved the burgers and ... Read more

I have been on carnival several times before this cruise and was very surprised how far in quality it has fallen. The embarkation process was smooth and leaving the ship was fine and a short walk to our pickup and the van was waiting ... Read more

We took this cruise as a back to back for a total of 14 nights. We had Faster to the Fun and the embarkation was made a little easier. We didn't have to stand in the long snaky line but we still had to sit and wait a bit. We enjoyed ... Read more

This was the first cruise ever for my family! We were so excited and raring to go that we could hardly contain ourselves in the days leading up to the time of departure. The ship, although a little worn, was very lovely. My cabin was ... Read more

I love the Pride. This was my 5th cruise. However I noticed that some of the perks are no more. Examples are not all cabins get the robes (you can have them upon request) but not every room has them any longer. The complimentary ... Read more

Having taken almost 30 cruises and none on Carnival, we decided to try Carnival to see if some of the negative comments we heard were true. We were pleasantly surprised, but not awed. Food was better than expected and we did not see a ... Read more

Pride is a nice size ship. The cruise is convenient from NYC and Baltimore and saves a flight from this area. Captain and crew are very friendly. Steve the cruise director runs a tight ship. I am platinium, so this makes a difference on ... Read more

This was a Thanksgiving week vacation, Sunday to Sunday, with a family of Ten sailing out of Baltimore. The ship was very nice and embarkation/disembarkation was a snap. We were on the Riviera deck, which I prefer because of seasickness. ... Read more
