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!

June 2014 - Bahamas

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Jun 22, 2014


Going in/out of Baltimore is the way to go.  The port employees really have their act together.  We stayed at a hotel the night before, took a cab to the port, and the driver stayed with us until the porter freed us of our luggage. The next time we saw our luggage, it was in our room. After boarding, we checked out our room, ate and checked out the ship. By that time our luggaage was in our room; we grabbed our suites and were at the pool. The cruise was lovely, the staff superb, the food in most instances was very good. I had signed my grandchildren up for the activities for their age group and although they felt the activities for their age group were immature, they certainly found enough to keep them busy.   We had a wonderful time, met some lovely people. We stayed on board when the ship docked at Cape Canavaral, went to Atlantas in Nassau and snorkled in Freeport.  Atlantas was extremely disappointing, especially for the amount charged.  Snorkling with Diana and Pat in Freeport was the best.  The worst part of the trip was waiting to leave the ship.  We were told to be out of our rooms by 8:30 a.m.  We sat in our waiting area for nearly 3 hours. There were apologies for the delay and it was announced that we could go to the Lido Deck or to our rooms.  The grandchildren were hungry and restless so we opted to eat and sit on the outside deck.  Once our number was called and we left the ship, the employees at the Baltimore port were great.  Whizzed right through customs, went to our designated station where our luggage was waiting for us as was a cab to take us to the train station.  The cruise I took 7 years ago was a major disappointment and I said then that I'd never take another; however, this cruise to the Bahamas has changed my mind. My reasons for the 3 star are the activities for my grandchildren's age groups and the waiting to get off.

I enjoyed this cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Jun 22, 2014


I enjoyed this cruise very much.  Carnival is a great company to go on the cruise with, they have a great amount of focus on keeping thier customers happy and satisfied, so when you're cruising with Carnival, you feel like you're one of the most important people in the world.  I will definitely go on another Carnival cruise.

The reason I gave this cruise four stars instead of five is because there were a few things that can be improved.  One of them is the size of the swimming pool.  This cruise has three sea days, when everyone is on the ship all day long, under the hot sun, or AC, whichever they prefer.  This ship has lots of family friendly activities, but bot everyone there is with the family (kids), and not everyone likes to join those activities.  I was going to the cruise to Bahamas, so that I could enjoy the heat, the ocean, and, during sea days, the pool.  The problem is that I wasn't the only one who wated to enjoy the pool, there were many (MANY) others who wanted the same.  This whip has three pools: two in the family friendly environment, with bunch of kids running around, yelling, paying, etc.  That where fun and loud activities took place.  There were alot of people there, no emply seats or beds, it seemed that everyone who had children on the ship spent their days there.  And a third pool, in the adult only "Serenity" lounge.  Very nice and quiet. Peaceful. But, unfortunately, everyone who didn't have children (or so it seemed), wanted to spend their time there.  This peaceful, adult only area, was not big enough for all the adults who wanted to chill there.  The pool was tiny, much smaller than family pools, and if you wanted to go in the water, because it was so hot under the sun, you had to sqeeze between other people, and sit in the pool like a sardine in the can.  It felt like a very big pool party, where no one knew each other.  Some people may enjoy it, but I felt like I needed more space.  

Another thing, I believe, can be imporved, is their food options.  Don't get me wrong, you will not be hungry on this cruise ship, in fact, I gained 11lb.  There was a lot of food, but not very healthy.  There's a restaurant that offers different menu every day, very good choices there, but I didn't find the quality of that food to be great.  It was ok, but not what I'd expect from a high class restaurant.  There's also a buffet, that offered food pretty much all day long.  During the day they had American food (burgers and hot dogs), Italian food (pasta), Asian food (rice, noodles, and variety of meat), and salad bar.  They also had pizza (very good), sandwiches (ok), and pastries all day long.  And late night stacks.  For people who are trying to eat healthy, salad was the only option, and that's not enough to stay full during the day.  And if you like to eat, like I do (despite trying to eat healthy), you'll eat everything, because you're on vacation so why not.  So what I would like to change is to add more healthy variety of food, like vegetables (cooked).

Evening entertainment was great, comedy shows, dance and singing shows, kareoke, games, etc.  

If you purchase an excursion, which I recommend, they have everything very well organized and easy to follow.  If I could turn time back, I would do this criuse all over again.  But when I book another cruise with Carnival, I'd like to try a different ship, and different destination.  It is my understanding that all their ships are pretty much the same, with the exception of few events and venues.  I'd like to see what they have to offer.

cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Jun 08, 2014


the rooms were nice and couldn't have been any cleaner.  Disappointed in the pools.  shouldve had a pool that was big enough for teenagers to play around in. the slide could ve been nice and easier to slide down. Food was excellent, lots of variety.  The tipping at the end was very confusing.  We thought tip was included, then people were handing the waiters and maids envelopes with more money in them.  I understand that guests should be well groomed and clean when eating in dining room.  I wish someone would have told us ahead of time that khaki shorts and a nice polo shirt werent nice enough for our teenage boys, as we were turned away from the dining room. Very frustrating after we paid alot for our whole family to get on that boat.  The performers on the boat are very well and deserve alot of credit.

Okay trip, Staff Amazing, food okay, room very nice

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: May 04, 2014


I was not very fond of the decor of the ship, but that is a personal taste thing.  Many of the common rooms were quite dark. The dinning room staff were exceptional--Table 212 @6:00 seating. The guests services desk was very helpful and understanding.  Our room was nice, steward was very helpful and I was traveling with an ex-husband with disabilities and a sister that was on her first cruise. We had a balcony and I don't think I will cruise again without a balcony. Carnival uses a very poor system for their bingo games and should take lessons from Royal Caribbean where the game is concerned. I found the ports rather disappointing, but we did enjoy the Ecotour on Half Moon Cay and I took my sister on a private taxi tour of Grand Bahama, which turned out great. I must say the dis-embarking on Sunday morning was unbelievably smooth and quick, a real treat!

Spring Get-a-away

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Apr 27, 2014


I was very excited about this cruise taking off from Baltimore (I live 2.5 hours away) and didn't need airline reservations to another departure point.  Embarkadation was swift and we were onboard only after 1 hour.  The ship sailed at designated time and we were able to go to our room within 2 hours.  The food seemed at best "cafeteria food".  However, later in the cruise it seemed to be upgraded and by the end of the cruise I would say it reached a level 4 star only b/c we dined in the dinnng room most of our meals.  I would like to say that David's Steakhouse was amazing!!  5 STAR!!  It is worth every extra dollar that is charged.  Our selections for dinner (18 oz. ribeye for him and my surf 'n turf) were excellent and the staff as well!  After 3 cruises, we finally dined at David's and I will always dine while on Carnival Pride!  The housekeeping staff was excellent, always had clean towels and a new towel figure in the room.  The cruise director did a good job keeping everyone busy with activities.  I believe the only way to cruise is to get a balacony room, we brought 12 bottles of water each and 1 bottle of wine each.  We did enjoy that! Oveall I would depart again from Baltimore on another cruise with a different path.

Was a good experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Apr 27, 2014


I had a very relaxing cruise, just thought that we were at sea to much. I expected to stay a day at each port. But my overall 1st experience was all good, I requested a handicapped room and it was very spacious and made my cruise so wonderful for this reason.

Great Cruise!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Apr 20, 2014


I loved this cruise!  There was so much to do and so much good food to eat.  We didn't even get to do everything we wanted to on the ship because there were so many activities to be had.  I loved the comedy club and hope they keep it when they redo the ship in October.

102 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!

Use the walking path on deck 10 and the Fitness facilities! Take the stairs wherever you go for exercise.

When you stop in Florida, Port Canaveral, go to the Coco Beach, you don't need an excursion to go there, just take the taxi, it's $12 per person, there and back. Im Bahamas, buy excursions. They seem overpriced (though any other place has expensive excursions too), but worth it.

Breakfast in the dining room was a nice surprise, could sit down and be served the same or better food than what was being served on the Lido deck. The deli was great as well!!!

Lido deck had alot going on from morning to night, if you wanted a bite to eat from 630am through 930 you had options!!

Check out the chicken strips on the Lido deck for a quick snack during the day. Public beach in Nassau is safe and FREE.

order the chocolate melting cake daily along with another dessert, just in case you don't like the other dessert, because you will like the melting cake.

all the ice cream you want,seating in a warm breeze....

Be certain to go to the Pizza Pirate for a personally crafted pizza. Open 24 hours. I had a pizza each day of the cruise. Take advantage of the fun-flled shows and activities. We hope that the Carnival Pride will remain at the Port of Baltimore for future cruises.

watch the chairs on the Serenity deck. We moved some towels if people didn't use the lounge chair after 40 minutes.

go to the comedy shows early if you want to get a seat

Go early to the main shows for good seats. Don't wait in line for your main dining room time just go down 5 minutes after your time & walk right to your table. The very first day takes a while longer because people don't know where their tables are yet so maybe go 15 minutes later on the first day.

LOVE the Adults only Serenity area on Deck 9 Aft.

Make sure that you go to the teas. We only made one - but it was GREAT!

The sea brunches rock.The Serenity adult deck fills quickly. David's Steakhouse is so worth the $35/pp.

Beverage package is worth it if you plan to have more than 5 drinks per day! Serenity desk is the best place for 21 and over!

Very smooth ride even in rough waters!

Do not run and buy unlimited drinks unless you absolutely want to. It's best to wait and get all the details first. Don't waste your money if you don't drink much.

utilize camp carnival if you have kids! ours were ASKING to go each day by the end of the cruise!
