7 Night Bahamas & Grand Turk (Baltimore Roundtrip) Sail Date: June 07, 2015 Ship: Carnival Pride Cabin Type: Oceanview Cabin Number:1219 Traveled As: Couple Reviewed: 2 years ago
My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary by taking a cruise to the Bahamas. The cruise overall was good - no complaints about the accommodations or the food, both were excellent. The service provided by the crew was fantastic - super friendly and always greeting you with a smile. There was quite a bit of confusion about their entertainment - the itinerary that was published each day had many mistakes, including mislabeling different events, etc. As a result, my wife and I missed out on a few shows and events. In addition, the smoke in the casino was terrible. I realize that many states still allow smoking at different venues and casinos, but it was completely overwhelming. My wife ended up with a sinus infection as a result of the amount of smoke exposure. They need to work on creating a non-smoking section that is completely separate or simply not allow smoking in the casino.
We would definitely recommend carnival and we will definitely cruise with them again.
Food and Dining
5 out of 5
Many options to choose from and there is food available 24/7, including room servive with several "free of charge" options.
3 out of 5
Lots to do, but much of it was silly things like trivia and deck games.
3 out of 5
While there was many things to do on the ship, the entertainment pales in comparison to the Disney cruises we were on. They had lots of trivia and games, but would like to see more full out stage productions.

We didn't have any children with us. Really not able to rate this fairly.
