August 2016 - Carnival Pride to Caribbean - Bahamas
The food and activities were tremendous. The drinks were somewhat pricey. Although the cruise was billed as "Bahama", the port side docking time at Nassau was less than that at the Florida Port Canaveral. The time at Freeport was even shorter.
The Carnival website says canned carbonated beverages are allowed on board. Being only a water drinker, our bottled water were confiscated.
Overall, the cruise was enjoyable. On boarding at Baltimore, there was no sign to indicate where "Faster to The Fun" ($59.95) should line up. Likewise, our suitcases did not make it to our room even though "The Faster to The Fun" promises they be in our room when we were aboard.
The boarding was more orderly - but the disembarkation was very chaotic.
