COMPARISON REVIEW OF GRANDEUR OF THE SEAS & CARNIVAL PRIDE
Having mainly cruised on ROYAL CARIBBEAN, we were on the GRANDEUR OF THE SEAS, 1/11/14, for a 10 night cruise, out of Baltimore, to the Western Caribbean. Having recently become Diamond Members, we looked forward to the amenities of that category, mainly the Diamond Lounge. When this cruise was over, we received an e-mail, from a discount travel agency, advertising a discount, last minute rate, on the Carnival PRIDE. Having never cruised on Carnival, & actually vowing that I never would unless it was free (rate was pretty close to that), looked further into it & booked it, departing Baltimore, 2/23/14, for 7 nights to Port Canaveral & the Bahamas. Really had no desire to get off the ship, as we’ve gone to those ports so many times, felt there really wasn’t anything new to see.
146 sq. ft. Smaller than I'd been told it would be. Please see total review for details.
