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.

Cruise to the Bahamas, July 2014

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Jul 06, 2014

This was an absolutely wonderful cruise aboard the Carnival Pride.  The cabin stewards were efficient and neat, knew our names by the end of the first day.  We dressed up and attended dinner in the formal dining room every night, for the 6:00 seating.  The food was excellent, and there were plenty of vegetarian choices for me.  Our dining room wait staff were also fast and efficient, but we never felt rushed at dinner.  Our wine steward was very attentive, but not pushy.  Everyone in the dining room greeted us like family when we arrived for dinner.  The shows and entertainment onboard were excellent, especially the three comedians we heard perform.  The activities offered suited everyone in our group, which varied in age from 12 to almost 60.  My son had great fun at the onboard Ping Pong tournament!  He also enjoyed the Arcade, and some members of our group spent time in the Casino.  The pools were nice, especially the adult Serenity area, and the wait staff were attentive.  Three of our party took advantage of a Spa mini package, which was value-priced and absolutely wonderful!  We felt relaxed and pampered.  Our three days in port were extremely enjoyable, and we participated in a variety of wonderful excursions.  The whole cruise experience was fabulous, and it was one of the best we've been on!

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.

Carnival Pride provides a fantastic vacation

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

It was a fantastic experience. The Carnival Pride staff was (better than RC) great and very helpful. We love the afternoon tea, the food overall was better than expected, the towel robes in the cabin were a plus, also the beach towel in the cabin that could be use when you go to port is a great addition. The spa steam and dry sauna were great with the glass wall so you were able to get the daylight in the sauna and not feel confined. We loved the spa and gym facilities overall with indoor jacuzzi for those persons sensitive to sunlight it is a great option with lounging chairs indoors. We also like the Serenity section of the ship, although it could be made larger since lots of people use it and it would be important to make the pool more handicap accessible with a ramp and handlebars to the pool.

it was really nice that for the cabin shower Carnival was able to provide a portable chair as an option for handicap even if a handicap cabin was not available. 

Also the value for the cruise was very good and we got a free upgrade to a balcony.

We look forward to more itineraries from Carnival Pride from Baltimore after the ship get refurbished. 

 

Thank you !!! Carnival and cheap cruises we will be back.

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!

Get up early so that you don't miss any activities that they have planned
