Review summary

We needed to just relax and this cruise let us do that. Thanks for a great 2 week getaway!

Embarkation

5 out of 5
What happened to the lines? We practically walked from the car to the stateroom!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Always the best eats. Luckily there are plenty of healthy options so we don’t feel guilty. Now to figure out how to cook at home again!

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We used the game room and the lounge chairs. Does that count? Exercise was walking on the Sun Deck.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
We loved the live music! Martin transformed the piano bar into a rowdy sing along. We couldn’t get enough of the Blind Summit duo. And Eureka Strings were amazing! And then the theater cast dancing and singing and working with the Patrons in the Glee Club and Youth Club. These folks are awesome!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our dining team (Dewa, Carlo, and Redika) were wonderful! I think you could make Carlo the Carnival Ambassador. He has such an authentic smile where ever you see him, always offering to help in any way he can. And he sings! I Nengah was our wonderful stateroom steward. We would always come back to a refreshed room, though we rarely saw him. How does he do it?

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
We love the Pride. She’s a small ship so you don’t feel lost, but big enough to have lots of things to do. The recent dry dock refurbish was well done and she looks great!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
You changed the mattresses! They are so comfortable! And new artwork! And new flooring on the balcony! And new balcony doors! Perfect size and thanks to our stateroom steward so clean!

Ship tip

Leave your tip money for breakfast brought to your room out the night before. It’s hard to open the safe when you haven’t had coffee yet!

Ports of call

Baltimore, Maryland

5 out of 5
We left from and returned to Baltimore. Very clean and easy. Very cold!

Grand Turk Island

5 out of 5
The best beach! No excursion needed - just walk to Margaritaville!

Oranjestad, Aruba

5 out of 5
Lovely Oranjestad. We enjoyed a Coke at an outside cafe.

Willemstad, Curacao

5 out of 5
The Willemstad Curacao Cathedral was the best part! And given that this town is so French Quarter and beautiful, my highest praises!

Fort-De-France, Martinique

5 out of 5
Unfortunately the fort was closed when we visited. There is a lovely little beach in front of the fort.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

5 out of 5
So lush and volcanic. A pretty island that one could spend many days on.

Tortola, British Virgin Islands

5 out of 5
Not so great for walking around. The island is beautiful.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
It’s always a process, but the hardest part is being in the cold again!
