Great Cruise by CFC2018

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

Was a great cruise with a group of 50+ people. Had a great time together. But onboard activities were limited due to the cold and ship decor desperately needs improvement with many things out of place when compared to the latest trends. Needs a overhaul at most. Food was barely okay and not much variety and was given the same thing again and again with no variety from day to day. Freeport port of call was probably the worst with nothing to do on the port and short time to do anything.

Relaxed sailing into the new year by biggiwolf

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We have been sailing on the Carnival Pride twice before and did enjoy it mostly after the last refurbishment. This time it showed significant signs of wear as for example the sealant on the balcony door. On the journey back we were on the wind side and the loud whistle that the draft created kept us awake for two nights. Also the mattresses were way too soft and got to warm. The food was okay but nothing really great. We were happy about our table for two that we were able to get every evening, probably because we were always early. However, we hated the ambient around us in the dining room because so many people just ignore the dress code. The staff of course, is not enforcing it - not even on formal nights. We felt kind of foolish for having brought proper clothes with us.

Much Better Ship than we Expected by arlingtonian

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We had hoped it would be good value for money, and it was. But it was much better than we expected in many ways. The Pride's balcony room was nicer than "premium" lines balcony rooms we have used, and the cabin staff was better. The Lido buffet's entrees were very good, and its deli was excellent.

Carnival knocked it out of the park. Only our second time with them and highly recommend this ship. The crew, the food, and the destinations were outstanding.

This was a wonderful cruise. All the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Our room was always very clean. Staff kept up with keeping the entire ship clean. Shore excursions were a lot of fun. The food was delicious.

Cookie, Charlie, and the fun squad made the trip worth it. by Muzaktaz

Verified Review

Fir as much as we pay for cruise, all food and drink should be included except of course the steakhouse stuff. Excursions are overpriced also. Not sure if i will go with carnival again or with another line that includes more for the price.

Great first cruise by Motodad417

Verified Review

It was a great first experience although the boat wasn’t at full power and we couldn’t visit all the ports all of the staff and directors were excellent the shows were entertaining and fun. The comedians and the fly on juggling act was great. I would like to suggest making the pools heated.

Disappointed By engine issues by sgough36

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

I was very disappointed and upset that I have traveled on the ship before and enjoyed it very well. This was my honeymoon and also Thanksgiving week. It was very important to spent these moments with my family and it didn’t happened. We were offered our full refund which was fine but it was such an inconvenience that not only was I not going to spend this special time with my husband, i also had to figure out something for Thanksgiving.

Another wonderful cruise by prettymuchnuts

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Love to cruise! Love the Pride! But......she is starting to show her age and really needs some work done! The window in our cabin on level one really looked like it was held in place by the rust! Our stop in Barbados was ruined by Cookie announcing, as the halfway was opened, that the entire island was non-smoking! My wife is a smoker and the idea of spending the entire day without a cigarette did not make her happy! We did a portion of our excursion, but it was supposed to end as a beach day! Instead we returned to the ship where she could smoke if she wanted! We later found out that the non-smoking announcement was not true! I enjoyed my meals in the MDR, but my wife was not very happy with the menu choices and had the pork chop at least 7 of the 14 days! The entertainment was good but some of the comments/jokes made by the entertainers would have been more appropriate in the Butterflies Lounge than in the Taj Mahal! Debarcation was kind of a mess, but mostly because of rude people who just had to be the first ones off the ship! I also did not feel that Cookie controlled the situation very well! All self debarkers, Diamond and Platinum were put in the MDR where we heard nothing from Cookie! Whether the speakers in there were not working and Cookie was giving no information, I don't know, but we were existing on rumours of what was happening! Sounds like a lot of complaints, but if I could afford it I would be back in board to day! I'm my Opinion, the only way to vacation and the positives greatly outweigh the negatives! Just please, please, please bring your patience and your desire to just have a great vacation!

It was a very nice journey cruise. Good food, good entertainment, good staff to help. The best feeling is that after 14 days I did not want to get off the ship. It was great.

Disappointed and frustrated by mikekaren2014

Verified Review

Overview is my husband and I never want to cruise on the “Pride” again. Mostly due to the smell of cigarettes in public areas. I hope to have a better dining experience in future cruises with your cruise line. Photography was okay. Too expensive.

Wonderful by dunlapdaisy

The only bad experience I had was my mom is in a wheel chair we went outside the dining room to smoke and there is a huge bump to go over and when we did he battery got caught on the bump and ripped the cord out. So I went to customer service and asked them to borrow an Allen wrench and a screwdriver and the man told me no. So I had to rent a push wheelchair and push her every where which kinda ruined my trip.
