Review summary

This was my second time on the Pride, first time being 5 years ago. Same shows, seemingly same menu. That’s why I said there could’ve been some updates. I know the weather can hinder things, however I was still disappointed due to the missed port. To me, it was very clear when a specific Captain was driving. It was like a bat out of h-ll for about 12 hours out of the day and then it was smooth for the other 12. This went on the entire time. People were vomiting from it. So, I do question of it was the weather that caused the missed port. We did encounter some rude staffers. We also encountered some great ones. Reviews were submitted to Carnival accordingly. Overall my friends and I had a great time, we liked a lot of things and we disliked a few things. We will certainly take those things into consideration the next cruise we book.

Ports of call

Baltimore, Maryland

5 out of 5
This was embarkation, very well organized.

Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island) Did not visit port

Very disappointed we did not visit this port. We were told it was too windy, I’m not sure about that. It seemed the captains driving is what was causing the ship to be unstable as this was a steady occurrence for the duration of the trip. Princess Cays was the main port I was looking forward to.

Nassau, Bahamas

3 out of 5
The stop itself was nice. Atlantis was nice. However, the people who greeted us off the ship and assisted us to get on the shuttle to get over to Atlantis were not friendly. They seemed very annoyed with their job.

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

5 out of 5
Had the best time at this stop, unexpectedly. Our guide for the ATV’s was excellent. He made the trip worthwhile.
