8 night Panama Canal Cruise on Carnival Pride

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. ...

My wife and I had not been on a cruise for several years and were just about to schedule one when COVID hit. We chose the Panama Canal trip as we wanted to go places that we had never been before and the canal was an opportunity of a lifetime! Due to the nature of this cruise there were only 2 port days, on in Limon, Costa Rica and the other in Grand Cayman. Organization for Limon was well done ...

The cruise was running at restricted levels which made the trip very pleasant. The cruise through the canal was delightful as we were able to see the locks from many different location. They did have crowds on the front decks and some people brought chairs and sat through the locks but most people were very courteous. I compare this to pre covid trip back in 2019 and the front of the ship was just ...

WORST CRUISE EVER COMPLETE WASTE TIME AND MONEY!

By FAR the worst we've been on Guest services are unbelievably rude, and have nasty attitudes. The food was TERRIBLE (I even found a tree LEAF in the gravy and the chef shrugged it off and continued to serve it!) The whole cruise was EXTREMELY boring, no poolside games and contests everyday or any kind of fun games and activities around and inside the ship other than some TERRIBLE trivia. The ...

My wife and I characterize ourselves as seasoned cruisers having been on over 15 of them over the years. We took a few years off but now that we retired, we're back at sea. The cruise left Tampa on a Saturday and arrived back eight days later on a Sunday. We had taken advantage of a great casino promo code linked to our VIFP accounts and got an obstructed view balcony and a fair amount of ...

I have always wanted to see the Panama Canal and it did not disappoint .My girls and my Grand daughter decided to to an all girl Cruise. The Crew was all amazing. My Stateroom Steward Aris was the best. As was the people he worked with always with a smile and a greeting. The ship was clean and well laid out. The entertainment was the best the singers and dancers were the best and when you seen ...

Our first Carnival cruise that my TA set up for us almost 2 years ago. We had the Grand Suite, which was more than we ever imagined! The service was excellent and always courteous. The foods and entertainment especially Polaris I could listen for hours was beautiful! Chef's Table was outstanding and totally worth it. Veterans appreciation and Veterans Tea gatherings was a nice touch too. Loved my ...

Could have been a great cruise except for the noise volume everywhere.

I've started writing this while still on board with a few days yet to go on our cruise so that everything is fresh in mind, and will finish after we leave the ship. My wife and I booked a Mini Suite and with it came some special offers which we accepted. Don't feel for a moment that what you are paying for your 'Guest Fare' is anywhere near your total expense. Here what was on our ...

Second time I cruised with Norwegian. My only three "real" complaints are : 1. the public rooms are very COLD. The Library felt like a meat locker. I think the cause is the staff is so "fully dressed." 2. I don't think the "specialty" restaurants are worth the price, $120 for a very average French meal, and $80 for Italian, and my wife's was inedible. 3. The theater talent and shows were ...

Disappointment with accommodations

Chose cruise based on itinerary, date and price. Our inside cabin 11579 was little more than a closet. No chair or anywhere to sit except bed. I was embarrassed as friends could not visit as No standing room either. No bathroom ammenties included and the worst toilet tissue ever, we bought our own. We felt like second class persons on this cruise while many of our friends enjoyed upgrades to ...
