8 night eastern Caribbean cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date:

For people living in the Baltimore area, cruising out of the port of Baltimore is convenient and minimizes pre cruise expenses.  The three ports (Nassau, Half Moon Cay, and Grand Turk) are all great ports and offer much in the way of excursions.  The food on the Carnival Pride was excellent.

Bermuda cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date:

Our cabin steward, Asep, was the best.  He greeted us by name every time he saw us.  Furthermore, each time we exited the cabin, we came back to a fresh room.  Asep also checked in on me since I felt a little sea sickness after the first night.  He was very accommodating by even getting us a power chord so that we could have extra outlets for our chargers.  I would prefer to cruise on any ship where he would be our steward again.  The comedy shows were great, as well as the food.

Advertised as a family cruise but not the best choice for any children under two

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date:

I booked this cruise because I was told it was great for families. My family consists of five children ages 15, 13, 10, 9, and a 1 year old. The repa spoke great of the camps. We booked it. However, upon arrival we learned that the camp is for children 2 and older. They did offer a paying day care, but it was only between 8-10a, 3-5p and 10p-1a. I always missed the morning day care and when I tried dropping her off in the afternoon, there was a family activity that required an adult present for my 9 & 10 year olds. I was not able to relax like I planned and like I wished. My older children were able to enjoy themselves. Great cruise if you traveling with teens, not great if traveling with children under two.

This was our first cruise and it was OK.  There were too many charges outside of the cruise cost.  Drinks should be included, as well as internet, as well as more expensive food entrees.

Mostly good a few disappointments

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date:

Getting into park in Baltimore was a little frustrating.  I think some traffic directors could have helped.  Once we got in and parked it was much smoother.  We had priority boarding and that was wonderful.  Got right on the ship and had a drink in the atrium lounge.  It was very late by the time we got in but everyone was so glad to be there.  We found an old friend Coco in the dining room wait staff and was very happy to see her.  I was disappointed that there was no trivia in the Red Frog Lounge.  I have been on a previous cruise and loved this particular activity.  I spoke to Steve the cruise director and he said corporate decided not to do it.  Food was mostly good.  A few things I would not get again, but their appetizers are really good.  Two nights I had them for dinner.  The breakfast buffet was getting a little boring.  I think they need to jazz that up.  Guy's burgers are the best for lunch!!!~!!

Disappointing

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date:

After a late departure w/ the understanding that we would be missing 2 out of 3 ports, we would receive a 50% refund & 50% off next cruise......and then we received the "refund",  This is not to include the $800+ in port fees & taxes. .Apparently  even though we stopped at 2 ports. i.e. 2 ports in the Bahamas, which are basically the same, and the ship had to pay extra for staying longer in the Nassau port ...........NONE of this was the passengers fault, doesn't the ship have to accept some responsibility & financial fault??????  This was a long awaited 1st cruise for 3 sisters & we will NOT be using our small refund for another cruise when Carnival accepts little to no responsibility.

Too much for too little!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date:

Carnival has been under scrutiny over recent years and I believe it is affecting what and how they provide.   I had many issues with this trip!  There food was awful, and very skimpy at dinner!  I pretty much lived in pizza for the entire week.  The bathroom had a hidious smell the entire time which no one could explain on top of not flushing properly or flushing by itself at times.  My daughter caught a virus while on board, the 5th day into the cruise which was circulating around the ship.  She had severe vommiting and a high fever for 3 days and as if that weren't enough one of the engines was not working properly and the whole one side of the boat shook violently and was so loud you couldn't stand it resulting in and extra day at sea!  We pre paid for spa treatments prior to the trip and they credited the pre paid amount back and charged us $80 more on our sails and sign bill which I'm still trying to get settled!!!  I have sailed with Carnival in the past and it was great, definitely gone down hill!  I will prob never sail with them again!

Good

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date:

I have been on many cruises and it just seems like they need to give things a fresh look and feel.  Everything seemed so dated and tired, from the corny games they play and they haven't even changed the questions in 27 years.  Would be interested in new ports of call or updated ships.  Staff was pleasant.

Don't buy the bargain sale watches with metal bands from the gift shop as there are no instructions on how to adjust the band (which are set for people with very large wrists). I was told to bring the watch to a jewelry shop when I get home to have the band adjusted.

a stateroom with a balcony is a must and the cheeseburgers on lido deck were the best with the seasoned fries, the ice cream was a very great hit.

A stateroom with a balcony is always a plus I think,and try their Rueben on Libido deck,one of the best I have had thepleasure to eat
