Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
This was my 3rd sailing on the pride the food this trip was so much better then the previous trips my first trip in 2015 everything I ate tasted bad the second time it was much better but this time I feel like the food could not have been better even if I cooked it myself

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
The pools were a little crowded on the sea days but it wasn't unbearable. The waterslides were open which was nice. It can get really expensive in the new arcade I racked up about 135 in charges over the 7 days only playing a few games a day

Entertainment

5 out of 5
It was the first trip with the fun crew onboard and you could tell they didn't seem to have developed the chemistry of working with each other yet but the shows were all good regardless

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The service was great. I'd like to give a special shout-out to the shot guy at the restaurant Suma he has a fun personality and also very hospitable

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Decks were constantly being washed and squeegeed by the pools to prevent slips. Bathrooms were spotless and they even had routine balcony cleaning while we were on board

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
It was about the same size cabbin we stayed in last time. It's not huge but bigger then the cheaper non balcony rooms. The balcony on the 6th floor seems to be slightly longer then the ones in the 5th

Ship tip

If you have more then 5 drinks a day it's probably worth it to get the drink package. And at a minimum you probably should get the bubbles package as the drinking water on tap can taste weird. Oddly enough the water at the restaurant was fine

Ports of call

Baltimore, Maryland

4 out of 5
I live and work here it's not exciting at all for me. If you've never been here before though we do have the best zoo and aquarium I've ever been to. But it can get a little expensive

Grand Turk Island

5 out of 5
Lots of duty free shoping. Probably good pricing on jewelery and stuff. The liquor at the duty free shop is similarly prices as the fun shop on the ship cigarettes are cheaper. Margaritaville has a huge pool with a swim up bar which is cool. If you want to get your hair braided I recommend waiting till freeport Bahamas or remember to sunscreen your head the next day at halfmoon cay

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)

5 out of 5
I wish I could build a tiki hut on this island and never leave. I've been here twice now and Weill be back for sure. Our first trip we saw a stingray at the beach and both trips we got to see lots of cool fish in their crystal clear water. The island bbq was delicious as well we skipped it our first trip but won't do that again.

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

5 out of 5
Lots of shopping. Lots of handcrafted things to buy from the locals (carved wood and bamboo mostly)

Disembarkation

2 out of 5
Was told disembarkation would start at 9:45 but only 1 customs official showed up so it was over 2 hours waiting for them to start calling us by floors
