Carnival Pride Aug29 2011

Sail Date: August 28, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Nice ship, clean, attentive staff, A knob was broken on a stateroom thermostat and was fixed in 15 minutes. I had a button depart my suit jacket and the steward found a sewing kit for us. Dancing shows were good. Carnival kept us well informed of changes neccessitated by Hurricane Irene. Our departure was delayed one day for this reason and the itinerary modified and we had one day taken off the trip (to be reembursed). We got frequent Emails on how the ship was modifying the previous week's cruise, how they raced the Hurricane northward and what impact we would have on our cruise.

Pros: Convenience of Baltimore Port...close to home

Cons: Assigned dining times...prefer freestyle.

Recommends Carnival Pride? Yes!

Food and Dining
Dining room food was good and well served...on a par with other cruises. Bakery buffet was outstanding.
Cabin / Stateroom
We loved the stateroom we had and we got upgraded to a balcony. Later found out this ship is 80% outside cabins and 80% of those are balconies.
Service and Staff
Not a single negative here. I liked that the foreign hostesses were anxious to talk to Americans and interacted well. Their English skill were great and they all were trying to improve their skills by chatting with us.
Ship Quality
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
Not very interesting.
