Carnival has completely stepped up their game. We were on the Carnival Victory several years ago and we vowed that we'd never sail with Carnival again. Then I read some reviews about the Carnival Pride sailing from Baltimore and we decided to give it a try....and it was AMAZING!!

We had so much fun and we just loved EVERYTHING about the ship - the decor, the staff, the other passengers, the events, the food, the entertainment, the cabin, we could just go on and on. Carnival seemed to be the new Disney to us....they would try any way they could to make our vacation great.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We loved the food - especially David's Supper Club.


5 out of 5
Loved the dancers. One of the shows (Vroom) needs to be updated, but it's still really fun. We loved the fact that they used the guests in the Carnival Legends Show.

Children's Programs

They need to revamp the Circle C Program for teens. They need more friendly and engaging leaders and better activities. They need to engage the kids from the beginning or they will 'lose' them.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
They bent over backwards to please us and tried to do anything we might ask for.
