Review summary

The cruise was good for a "Journey Cruise". We enjoyed the islands that we went to. We were hoping to get our passports stamped everywhere, but didn't have a lot of luck. At St. Maartens we had to walk about two miles through some rough terminal unloading areas. The Pride really needs some heavy overhauling as she is really looking rough. They need to come up with some new shows. The food was not as great as the last "Journey Cruise".

Embarkation

3 out of 5
The Embarkation for Handicap needing assistance was AWFUL. We were the last people to embark.

They were always badgering you to take your picture. The took pictures of the Veterans Day celebration then want to sell you one for ten dollars. You would think that they would give each veteran one or at least just for five dollars. The displays was all mixed up, very disorganized.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
The cast did a great job, however it's the same old shows.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The overall service was excellent.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Carnival Pride needs a complete overhaul. I saw a lot of "Jury Rigging" around the ship. The crew worked hard to keep the ship clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The cabin was comfortable and roomy but lacked a chair or sofa. The refrigerator did not keep my med's cold and we had to keep a ice bucket in the frig.

Better have your passport with you. It was almost like they didn't want you.

Bridgetown, Barbados

5 out of 5
Have been here several times and learn something new each time that I am there. The only draw back was that it was Sunday an most places were closed.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

San Juan, Puerto Rico

Caught a free shuttle to the street of umbrellas and had a drink a the "original Pina Colada". The walk back to the ship through old town was easy, all down hill.

Grand Turk Island

3 out of 5
They were having trouble with the chemicals at Mariettaville pool, so it was closed. the beach was great but crowded.

Disembarkation

2 out of 5
We were a day late getting back because of a Nor'-easter things were pretty rough for two days. They were trying to embark at the same time they were disembarking, it was really baad.
