August 2014 - Carnival Pride to Caribbean - Bahamas
We live in Philadelphia and sailed out of Maryland, I was surprised how easy and convenient the parking lot was. It's located tight off of 95 and the ship is right there. I thought the ship was really nice and the staff was exceptional. The ports were beautiful but I rather have skipped Port Canaveral and spent more time on the beach in Freeport. The food was ok but the upscale dining was so delicious that we ate there two times. I definitely would sail out of Maryland again, the convenience is great. I wish in the future Carnival offers more ports of call to visit. I would recommend this cruise. Thank you for a GREAT vacation!
