A Mixed Experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Aug 31, 2014

To start with the positive, the stateroom was nice, clean and well taken care of; the crew was friendly and helpful; the food was good; and our shore excursions were enjoyable.  On the other hand, our use of the balcony was limited by the loud talking, smoking neighbors; the entertainment emphasised FUN too much for us (i.e., it was always LOUD).  We concluded we will be happier on other cruise lines such as Princess or Holland America.

The Carnival Pride

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Aug 17, 2014

Our experience onboard the Carnival Pride was a good one. Starting from our embarkation,it went smoothly and pretty quickly. Our cabin steward was great. He kept our room spotless day and night.My kids loved the little towel animals that were left on our bed each night with the turndown service. There was a lot to do each day and night,as far as cruise activities went.The dining room wait staff was amazing. We had a special diet,so they tried their best to accommodate us each night. The entertainment was great as well. If you have kids,be careful about watching the stage shows with them. Some of the shows were a little risque,meaning the costumes,or lack thereof. If you don't mind them seeing skimpy costumes,then disregard. As far as port info,Port Canaveral was nice,but there wasn't much to do off the ship,esp. since you have a very limited time in each port. I would recommend booking excursions. Nassau was beautiful,esp. the beach. Atlantis is a must if you're visiting the Bahamas. I have cruised previously with Celebrity CL,but our first time with Carnival CL was not bad at all. Overall,it was a good experience.

Dining Room Attire

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Sep 21, 2014

Service, staff, and food were great. Shows were excellent.  Been on a couple of other cruise lines and their shows do not compare to Carnival's -- costumes etc. are the best.  Only concern is that the attire for the dining room is not enforced.  Do not feel that the dining room is a place for short shorts for baseball caps.  If a person has a medical condition and must wear a cap -- that is fine - but to sit at a dinner table with a baseball cap on is unacceptable, in my opinion.  There are many other options available for dining other than the dining room -- Men are not forced to wear jackets and ties for dinner; leave the shorts and caps to the deck areas.  Overall cruise was great -- just concerned about the dining attire.

Bait and Switch

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Aug 24, 2014

The only reason we took this cruise was the itinerary  which included Turks Island.  Before sailing from Baltimore  they announced the ship would not be going to Turks Island because of the threat of a hurricane.  Actually on Sunday it was a Tropical Storm over Turks which moved toward the Bahamas our new destination by Monday.  By Wednesday when we were supposed to arrive at Turks it had passed over the Bahamas and was headed for Bermuda. We were unhappy with the ports of Cape Canaveral and Nassau the last time we took this cruise and very disappointed by this switch.

We have taken about forty cruises in our lifetime and have taken only Cruises which do not involve flying due to health lately.

Popular Tips for Carnival Pride


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!

STATE ROOM WITH A BALCONY IS A MUST AS YOU OBSERVE THE SUNSET AND BREATHE THE FRESH SEA AIR!
