Family vacation and wedding

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: May 10, 2015

Service was exceptional.  We had a wedding take place at Port Canaveral and the staff service was equal to any 5 star facility.  The food for the wedding was bountiful and excellent quality.  We all found activities we enjoyed, from the nightclubs to bingo to karaoke.  The serenity pool was a perfect escape. While this cruise is not perhaps of the same caliber of other lines, such as Celebrity, I would recommend this cruise for those looking to enjoy the experience of a cruise at reasonable pricing and for any age.  My only wish was that there were more adult shows and performances.

Could have been better

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: May 10, 2015

The ship was nice but some of the staff was so unfriendly.  No smiles or anything.

I will choose a trip with no kids next time.  The parents let their children run free and staff couldn't control them or didn't want to.

Drinks were sooo high.  I have bartend on the side for 19 years and $10 for a margarita was just a bit too much and I didn't like how the how you had to pay for EVERY DRINK when you ordered instead of a tab.

So much to do on board. OMG Guys Burger Joint and The Blue Iguana have excellent food. Thats in addition to all the other great food. The new bars are great too, with The Alchemy Bar being the best ever bar. They make the best drinks. 3rd time on The Pride and it WONT be the last.Big Smile

We had a great time. Staff was very friendly.  Food was wonderful.  Shows a were fun.  Ship is clean.

Half Moon Cay was our favorite as far as the beach.  The water was beautiful.  Great lunch.  Wish there was a beach at the docks at Freeport.

Very enjoyable

1st time Cruiser,

Check-in was simple. Once on the ship every crew member was friendly and willing to go out of their way to help us get around. This friendliness was there for the entire cruise.

From 7 am until 11 pm there was always something going on, your choice is weather to participate or just relax. The food was all good and many options to choose from. The cleanliness of the ship was top notch!!

We are looking forward to our next cruise

Fantastic get-away

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Apr 26, 2015

Leaving from Baltimore was fabulous for this DC Metro resident and the 2nd time taking Carnival from this port.  This type departure is far more hassle-free than flying to a destination to depart port. The food was excellent (I went free-style with open dining) and I enjoyed exercising the option of selecting an item from the "set" cuisine offerings. The disembarkation process went very smoothly. The directions on how to prepare luggage pick-up the night-before and waiting areas the day-of were executed with military-like precision.  The crew was always sunny/upbeat and made you feel welcome.  I would gladly take this same cruise over again.

Great facilities, Great Staff

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date: Apr 26, 2015

Very quiet, fun, enjoyable cruise. We did a great many activities. All were good but our favorite was the "Getaway Island" show. Great fun and great music. The actors were very competent and performed well. Then we went to the Red Frog Pub with the cast between shows to party. It was a great time.

The staff and crew were also wonderful. Our steward, Mr. Wayan was great, as was our server in the dining room, Natalia. The bingo games were fun and the performers in the bars.

I would not hesitate to take this ship again as we had a wonderful time!

Good time on the Pride.

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

This is the third time that I have cruised on the Carnival Pride over the last year and a half.  That being said I enjoyed the upgrades that they had to offer.  The shows were good and overall the food was good as usual.  I enjoyed the new additions of Guy's Burgers and the Mexican burrito place.  As always I really enjoyed David's Steakhouse and went there five nights!  The only thing that I would change if I could was I would eliminate the Freeport day and maybe add a day on one of Carnival's private islands if they have one.  By the way I have cruised solo on all of these.

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!
