Bahamas Cruise is Worth Your Vacation

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Aug 09, 2015

My wife, 8 year old daughter, and I took this 7 night cruise - it was our first cruise experience. When asked afterward, my daughter said "It was the best vacation ever!" We booked an ocean view with balcony cabin, and enjoyed all aspects of the cruise: eating, games, shows, trivia, shopping, did I mention eating? The ship is a very nice, stable ship. I would rate this cruise 4.5 stars, but there is no option. My only 2 recommendations: first, there was a stop in Cape Canaveral FL, which was just ok, so we could have done without that stop and saved a day. I now see that Carnival is offering a 6 night cruise without FL - that seems like a winner. Second, the pools are pretty crowded and small, and ocean water content. We swam the first day for a few minutes and then did not go back. Other than those two minor issues, this is a cruise worth doing!

Great Family vacation

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Aug 09, 2015

This was our first Carnival Cruise (we have taken other cruise lines before).  My two younger children, ages 10 & 13 did not enjoy the Camp Carnival, but did find plenty of activities outside of the camp that they enjoyed doing, both with the family and on their own.  Since we go to Florida on a regular basis, this port was not very exciting for us and we would have rather stopped at their private Island, but my older children, ages 18 & 16 did enjoy a trip to Kennedy Space Center with my wife, while I stayed back on the ship with the younger ones and enjoyed the water park and other activities that were emptier.  The highlight of the trip was a day at Atlantis, with a shallow water dolphin experience.

Overall the cruise was fun....good food, clean and the staff were all friendly.

birthday cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Aug 02, 2015

it didn't meet my expectations as a refurnished ship.

 I've been on other Carnival ships had much fun and memorable times. On this one the casino floor managers seem to be not so customer friendly, which made me feel unwelcomed.  Also, my roommate was charged for three sodas from the room bar which we never touched. she bought her ginger ale at the bar by the lobby and I brought in 2-3 from outside.

The dining was excellent. My request for early dining was granted and the head waiter, Orlando, and his team were very hospitable and friendly.

The last 4 days of the cruise was great!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Jul 19, 2015

I was sick for the first 3 days because we had to stand at the life boat station too long in the high heat. I had room service and watched tv. The last 4 days was great we did most of the shows, the adult pool and hot tub. The food was very good.

Great Experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Jul 12, 2015

Had a wonderful time and experience!! My advice would be to include soda it is inconvenient to only get one soda at a time and that it is only offered at the bars. Everything else was excellent including the staff!!!

Good cruise, service could be better

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Jul 05, 2015

My first Carnival cruise, usually go with RC.    I was dissapointed in the the lack of staff (seemed understaffed) and the staff were not very helpful or friendly.  On RC, they always go out of your way.  Carnival staff were snippy and rude, and provided little help to my disabled veteran husband (like not helping him at the buffet when they saw him struggle with a cup of coffee).   On RC, they were right there.   Long lines to get drinks and snacks, etc, did not seem  like they wanted to help.  Maybe they are overworked. 

 

Food was OK. Guys burger joint and pizza were a hit. Buffet was average, formal dinners nice in dining room.   Cabin assistants were awesome - best employees on the ship.

GBoat drill

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Jul 05, 2015

The emergency boat drill was very unorganized. It took almost 45 minutes or even more to get started. Something needs to be worked out to make it a more smooth presentation. My other cruise had us completely finished in 20 minutes or less.

this trip is very nice

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Jun 28, 2015

it was a nice trip for our family. We had 13 family members go on this cruise together. Everyone had a good time. the pool is very clean. Food is amazing. The stateroom stew keeps the room clean all the time. crews on the ship are very friendly to us. They always ask if we need any thing or if we are happy with the food. It was the most wonderful week of the year for my family.

Popular tips for Carnival Pride.


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

Get to the hot tubs on the first night while you can while everyone is checking out the ship ceause after that they are never free!
