7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Baltimore Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 01, 2012
Ship: Carnival Pride
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago
Nice, clean ship with very personable and attentive staff. Crowded during certain social activities. Main atrium area is beautiful with the glass elevators taking you all the way to the top deck.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The only option (without paying extra) for drinks was tart lemonade, iced-tea, or water. The ice dispensers could not keep up with the demand and were constantly empty. The vegetarian selections were varied, plentiful, and delicious (we are strict vegetarians).


5 out of 5
Excellent but crowded comedy shows. The Spa staff were very professional.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
We did not utilized the children's programs but were impressed with the gaming rooms and programs we saw.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff bent over backwards to accomodate our special requests.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The interior of the ship was beautiful but the renaissance decor needed repairs in many areas. The overall layout was good with easy access to all areas once we became accustomed to the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
There was a nightclub near our stateroom and at night we were disturbed by the booming music escaping from the club. The towel folding skills (stingray, ape, swans) each day were amazing and enjoyable in our stateroom.

Pros: Food, comedy shows, international solidarity and friendliness of staff

Cons: Personal alcohol allowance policy.

Recommends Carnival Pride? Yes!
