Great Value for Money

Sail Date: February 13, 2011

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Liked the Italian renaissance theme of the decor, it created a warm ambience and made the ship stand out from others. Crew was pleasant, but training and service varied, not as sharp overall as other lines we have cruised on. Food was plentiful and good, but not outstanding.

Pros: Leaving from a nearby port (Baltimore); decor of ship; reasonable price

Cons: Some food (dinner entrees) was unimaginative; lack of signage to help get off ship in port

Recommends Carnival Pride? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
Nice layout, well thought out. Overall orange decor color not my favorite, but I enjoyed the art on the walls. Steward was a whiz with towel animals!
Service and Staff
Some wait staff in dining room very well trained and attentive, others not so good. All staff cheerful and made a point of greeting us as we passed.
Our impression was that there was less going on during the day than other cruises we have taken, but maybe we have just gotten a bit jaded! Thought the singers and dancers were above average, and the variety shows very well done. Some really nice musicians on the ship.
Ship Quality
Ship was very clean and well kept.
Food and Dining
Loved the pizza bar and sushi options. Wish the entrees in main dining room had had a bit more pizazz. My Time dining worked out well, a nice option.
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
Some great snorkeling at Paradise Beach, and we enjoyed learning about the history of Grand Bahama Island on our tour.
Don't Miss: Western Heritage Tour
Port Canaveral, Florida

Don't Miss: Kennedy Space Center
Nassau, Bahamas
Nice that the ship docks right in the heart of downtown Nassau -- easy to walk off the boat and do your own thing.
