We chose this 8-night cruise onboard the Carnival Pride for one reason: the Panama Canal. A Panama Canal Cruise has been on our bucket list and we were thrilled when we discovered this cruise fit into our schedule.
We are frequent Carnival cruisers, but we were a little apprehensive about the age of the Carnival Pride. The Pride showed its age, but I loved the nostalgic feel of the ship. The interior spaces felt like previous cruise ships I had enjoyed and I loved how broken up the space was. The ship has plenty of seating inside and the three pools on the lido deck mean you can choose which type of environment you want on a particular day.
The Pride also has a more classic feel to its buffet. There are the FunShip 2.0 upgrades of Guy’s Burgers and Blue Iguana (and the cakes at lunch!) but the regular buffet lines were more spaced out with more lines of traditional food than on other cruise ships. It also has an Asian inspired line, but no Wok.
