11 Night Southern Caribbean Carnival Journeys (Baltimore To San Juan)
Sail Date: January 17, 2016
Ship: Carnival Pride
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 6263
Traveled As: Couple

Sailing out of Baltimore is not a good idea in the winter unless you are prepared to wear your winter coat or other very warm layers of clothing.  The Carnival Pride is a great ship, except that it has NO heating system!  We asked for heavy robes, extra blankets, how to run the air so that a/c wasn't blasting away almost constantly, and pulled the heavy drape on our balcony window.  All three passengers on our trip are now sick at home.  That being said, the ship, itself, is spotless; the many, many hired help are friendly and good at what they do.  The food was generally quite good, but the variety was often lacking.  The pool areas were great, as were the outside movies.  The entertainment was average.  Lots of trivia games and very few educational activities.  The ports were all excellent.  Each island is different.  We would recommend this cruise to others, but keep deeply in mind the very miserable cold and a/c we endured for a full 2 days before starting to feel some warmth.

Very modern, clean, and lots of room in the bathroom to spread out personal items. Lots of storage areas. The phone, however, didn't work, and we needed to be in contact with the 3rd passenger in another cabin down the hallway frequently. Maintenance was very helpful, even if they couldn't fix the problem. I sense they are understaffed.
