Beautiful Ship

Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date:

MY favorite part was the entertainment and participating in some games.

 

I can only think of one improvement. During the nights of the shows in the big hall, only 2 waiters were workers. The place was packed each night and that was a lot of work for only 2 people. More need to be assigned.

 

For fellow travelers: Do not be a cabin bug. Get out and enjoy yourself.Big Smile

Not as Good as the Last Time We were on the Pride

Verified Review

Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date:

For the most part, we enjoyed the cruise.  We met some very nice people and had a very good time.  There were a few areas that need attention and/or correction.  The entertainment was very poor.  Eight singers and dancers performed in the main theater on each night for five of the seven nights.  Same singers and dancers but different acts.  No comics, no magicians, no impersonators, etc.  On two nights there was no entertainment at all, just silly games with audience participation.   The Butterflies Lounge had comics for the first three nights but nothing after that.  The casino is on the second deck.  Smoking is allowed in the casino.  To get fore and aft on the second deck you have to go through the casino.  Hold your breath cause the smoke will kill you.  Carnival needs to improve the ventilation in the casino to better remove the smoke.  One of the Assistant Cruise Directors was actually a detriment.  He was in charge of many of the Trivia games and he made the experience a chore for us.  Difficult to understand, slow, often distracted, always behind schedule.  The worst ACD I have ever seen on a cruise ship.   The food was good but lacked the pizzaz that I have seen on previous cruises.   The staff was great - servers in the main dining room - outstanding, our cabin steward - took care of our every need.   I know that you get what you pay for, but I think with a few modifications, this could have been a great cruise for the money.

The Best Way to Cruise

Verified Review

Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date:

Leaving out of Baltimore is the best way to go.  There is no flying out of your city and you have to do is drive there.  Parking is about $105.00 for the whole week.  Check in was about an hour.  The ship was great and the service was outstanding.  The staff is very attentive and the food was delicious.  I can't say enough about the entertainment.  All of the islands were beautiful.  I loved Half Moon Cay (Carnival private island), the best.  We did not go to Freeport because of the storm Julia.  Please cruise on the Carnival Pride.  You won't regret it.

Great time visiting Bermuda!

Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date:

We loved our cruise to Bermuda on the Pride. The Serenity deck was awesome - just wish they had a better system for the hammocks and covered lounges - like maybe renting them? Seemed like not enough to go around.  Loved the waterslides. The shows weren't as good as on other Carnival cruises... but that's ok plenty of other things to do!!   Ship is nice, being updated, don't notice it's age.  :)   Can't wait to go back!!  We also really enjoyed sailing out of Baltimore.. very easy port to deal with compared to other ports we've sailed out of.

Carnival pride Bermuda cruise

Verified Review

Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date:

A section of the hallway on starboard side on deck 8 had an awful musty smell the whole cruise. The rest of the hallway was fine. Our room staff did an excellent job !!

The dining room waiters also were great!

The embarkation was well managed but disbarkation took way too long. 

One other complaint--The announcements could not be heard at all in the room! The sound system was terrible!!

not PROUD to be on the PRIDE

Verified Review

Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date:

So Bermuda as a whole was amazing! This was actually our 3rd time on the pride in the same suit. We LOVED our 1st cruise...LIKED our 2nd cruise....but only TOLERATED this one. The food was less than desirable, at best. It had no flavor & you could tell it was frozen bulk food, just being reheated! The food went from a "c" to an "f" for sure. We've now cruised every route this ship offers, so needless to say we won't be on the pride again. They really should get the vendor's name RC uses, as their food is STELLAR! Our cabin hadn't been updated w/any new / modern amenities in the four yrs we've been on there, and at this point it looked tacky :(....sorry carnival, you shouldn't be PROUD>>>>you can do better...

First Carnival trip

Verified Review

Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date:

Carnival Pride was a right sized ship for us--we do not like the large monster ships. It was our first cruise on Carnival and it compared favorably with all the other lines we cruise with i.el diamond members on Royal Carib, Celebrity,Costa, and MSC.

Did not like that I paid twice what I would normally pay for an inside cabin.

The service was great expecially our room steward--Gontar.

Could improve--there was no French bread for breakfast and few fruits. All other lines did have French bread available at all meals.

Otherwise the ship was nice and our trip was smooth inspite of missing a hurricane. Bermuda was nice to visit.

Nice family cruise

Ship: Carnival Pride | Sail Date:

Although we went through hurricane Hermine, the Captain an excellent job.  I suggest everyone always eat in the family dining rooms, as you feel you have a better food experience.  Also Guy Fieri Burgers are Delicious, and that Ships Burrito stand, impeccable; everyday, need to stay opened longer though.

All and all a nice trip.

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

Don't buy the bargain sale watches with metal bands from the gift shop as there are no instructions on how to adjust the band (which are set for people with very large wrists). I was told to bring the watch to a jewelry shop when I get home to have the band adjusted.

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.
