Cruise Carnival Pride by ronehall

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Carnival Pride / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

This was our second Carnival Cruise and the first on the Pride. Overall, very satisfied with the ship and staff. Trip was from Baltimore with stops at Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay and Freeport.  The Baltimore port was extremely easy to get in and out (drove POV). Pride is not a large ship, but plenty large. Cruise Director was very good.

Pride Feb. 7-14 by kfk657

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Carnival Pride / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

We had a wonderful time on this beautiful ship. The cabin was larger than we expected and the cabin steward was wonderful. The food and staff was great. We did have some rough weather but the captain was able to avoid the worst of it. He kept us informed at all times. The ship was clean and modern. We loved the Kennedy Space center in Florida. Nassau and Freeport were fun and we enjoyed our time there. It was a great vacation!

Winter Break by BaltimoreCruise

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Carnival Pride / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

It is hard to complain when you go somewhere warm and beautiful. So I gave it a good rating. Would I repeat it -no. The Ship was cold when it was cold outside and comfortable when is was warm outside. Diner at the Normandy was slow, food was often cold and lacked flavor. We joked that the Chef at the Normandy where trained in culinary school (made things look pretty) but the cooks at the buffet were trained by Mom (not pretty but flavorful). Don's waste your $ at David- you get better steaks and friendlier service at home. It is unclear to me why the excursions are so expensive. Entertainment seems to be centered around drinking. We enjoyed Nassau Blue lagoon excursion,  it was beautiful, not crowded and we did a great Segway tour with Ashton.

Sail Away by ravensroost4

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Pride / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

I just recently returned from my 7-day cruise on the Carnival Pride from Baltimore to the Bahamas and Grand Turk Island.  The weather was great, the ship was well-trimmed, the service was very good, and the experience phenomenal!  My wife and I had a great 7-day vacation on the Pride!

We had been to the Bahamas before ... so we elected to stay on the ship while most passengers took the tenders ashore to Half Moon Cay.  Good move on our part!  We hate being herded around with hundreds of passengers ... and that was our experience at Half Mood Cay several years ago.  Our choice to stay on the ship paid-off ... we had the Serenity deck entirely to ourselves and spent a relaxing day in the sun and around the pool.  No herding!  We visited Grand Turk ... and it was good to see since we had never been there ... but there's really not much there to see (aside from Margaritaville ... that's a must-see!).  It's an impoverished, barren island.  Some OK beaches ... but no need to return from our standpoint.  Our stop in Freeport was also a bit disappointing.  The ship was in port from 8am-noon ... and we grabbed a taxi to Port Lucaya hoping to browse the many shops ... but nothing was open!  We walked around aimlessly for an hour or so, then grabbed a cab back to the ship.

The ports of call were not expected to be the highlights of our trip since we had been there before.  We looked forward to the experience aboard ship and were very happy and satisfied with that experience.  I'd take the cruise again ... but likely wouldn't bother disembarking at any port.

We enjoyed the shows and really liked the music trivia hosted by Steve the Cruise Director!

The cabin was spacious and we got plenty of use out of our balcony!

I can't comment on the food ... I wasn't allowed in the main dining room so we ate at the buffet every meal (long story ... I ain't goin' there!).

One complaint - the primary water slide broke on the 2nd or 3rd day of the cruise and was not available for the remainder of the cruise.  We never got to try it.

One more complaint ... my wife opted for the Cheers program to make alcohol consumption more economical for the week ... and I was REQUIRED to also purchase the Cheers program since I shared a cabin with my wife ... but I don't drink alcohol!  I understand the rule ... but I feel like I got hosed!

Overall, a great week and a great cruise!

Carnival Pride by nhewlett

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Pride / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

Experience was great. I just didnt like when we got to Freeport there were excursion people on board telling us we were to take a bus to the beach area, but it turned out to be a private yet dirty beach. After getting back to the states i found out that i should have took a taxi & that there were several other nicer areas of Freeport i could have visited.

Great facilities, Great Staff by terryspitler

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Pride / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

Very quiet, fun, enjoyable cruise. We did a great many activities. All were good but our favorite was the "Getaway Island" show. Great fun and great music. The actors were very competent and performed well. Then we went to the Red Frog Pub with the cast between shows to party. It was a great time.

The staff and crew were also wonderful. Our steward, Mr. Wayan was great, as was our server in the dining room, Natalia. The bingo games were fun and the performers in the bars.

I would not hesitate to take this ship again as we had a wonderful time!

Spring Get-a-away by gibbonscm

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Pride / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

I was very excited about this cruise taking off from Baltimore (I live 2.5 hours away) and didn't need airline reservations to another departure point.  Embarkadation was swift and we were onboard only after 1 hour.  The ship sailed at designated time and we were able to go to our room within 2 hours.  The food seemed at best "cafeteria food".  However, later in the cruise it seemed to be upgraded and by the end of the cruise I would say it reached a level 4 star only b/c we dined in the dinnng room most of our meals.  I would like to say that David's Steakhouse was amazing!!  5 STAR!!  It is worth every extra dollar that is charged.  Our selections for dinner (18 oz. ribeye for him and my surf 'n turf) were excellent and the staff as well!  After 3 cruises, we finally dined at David's and I will always dine while on Carnival Pride!  The housekeeping staff was excellent, always had clean towels and a new towel figure in the room.  The cruise director did a good job keeping everyone busy with activities.  I believe the only way to cruise is to get a balacony room, we brought 12 bottles of water each and 1 bottle of wine each.  We did enjoy that! Oveall I would depart again from Baltimore on another cruise with a different path.

Not what we booked for, but made the best of it by chattypatty226

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Carnival Pride / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

We booked a BAHAMAS Cruise, not an EAST COAST US CRUISE!!! We booked to go to the Bahamas, We were informed that a transformer or something broke on the ship & they weren't taking us to Freeport, but instead to Charleston NC. because the ship couldn't go it's regular speed of 21 knots. We watched on the tv that the ship was going 20 knots, when we were closer to Baltimore we were only going 4!!! We know it's b/c we would have gotten into Baltimore waaayy too soon! The pool & hot tub  in the Serenty area, over 21 area, was not even filled til Friday when we were just about back!!! The hot tubs & pools were full of kids jumping all over, which was great for them, but we couldn't even get in either. Oh & most of the time one of the pools was closed. NOT Happy! The toilets had a mind of their own, flushing when they wanted to!!! Did not flush when you needed it to be flushed!! The ice machines at the Mermaid Grille, took turns working & not working. I purchased a Majestic Topaz pendant at Nassau. Purchased a different chain on the ship. Left the pendant with the guy selling the " By the Inch" chains so he could have the pendant on the chain before he put the "O" ring on, since the bail was small. Went back to pick it up, the pendant was gone!!! NOWHERE TO BE FOUND!!!! I'm furious about that!!!! The guy that sells them wasn't the one that put the clasps on, I lookd at him & said where is my pendant??? He just gave me a dumb look &said I don't know, didn't see that! I KNOW the other guy put it on the chain & put them in the bag!!!!  The selling guy offered me to take one of his charms. I had already bought the charms I wanted. I wanted the pendant I bought in Nassau!!!  He then finally gave me what I paid for it. Well it was never "found" & so I now don't have it!!!! I am really angry about that!!!! I'm sure somone is enjoying MY pendant!!! We enjoyed our family time together, all 6 of us, but had many dissapointments. Shame because we had to wait many years to be able to on on this cruise planning on it being to the BAHAMAS!!! We have already to driven to NC & didn't like it then & didn't like it even more when we were stuck having to go there!!! They offered us 25% off a future cruise, but then that foces us to have to spend more money on their cruise ship!! Gave us nothing for this one that was no fault of ours, it was the faulty ship supposedly. It may take us years to be able to do this again!!! We are not happy! It's sad!!

Rough and Rocky by kram70932204

Ship: Carnival Pride

Overall it was a good cruise. We hit some bad weather and suffered a few days of sea sickness, but besides that it was good. Our room was great, the food and entertainment was good, and everybody we met was very friendly. I can't wait to go on another real soon.

Great service once again! by spuds20031

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Pride / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

This was our 4th Carnival cruise, and 2nd on the Pride out of Baltimore. We prefer destinations where the beaches are very close to the ship and don't require a cab ride. Grand Turk and Half Moon Cay (with ship's tender) meet that. Half Moon Cay is stunning, I can't stay out in the sun all day, so I didn't really get to enjoy it 2 years ago. This time we rented the cabana, and it was fantastic. I highly recommend that. We feel very comfortable on the Pride, the staff was great. Our room steward and wait staff were beyond top notch. We had a balcony room. We asked for an ice bucket-no problem. I asked for a reclining lounge chair for the balcony-no problem. Extra towels, preferred time for cabin cleaning, laundry service...no problem. This group was amazing. We enjoy the comedy shows, these were kind of hit and miss. These guys do so many shows that I think they are trying to stretch out their material. Overall, the food was great. I love Guy's Burger Joint, but one of the servers was a bit of a pain-didn't want to prepare my burger as requested. I didn't get his name, but should have. The breakfast was good, I had a freshly made omelette every morning. One surprising thing...to my knowledge, no fried chicken tenders anywhere on the ship. With kids on board, you would think.... The dining room meals were delicious, service was amazing. We have already booked next year's 7 day cruise on the Pride and we have booked a suite this time.

Bermuda...Best Cruise Ever by sandy304

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Carnival Pride / Destination: Caribbean

For $50 an hour (includes all passengers in the car or van) you can have a wonderful private tour. The Glass Beach near the port has had hurricane damage but still is interesting. The pink sand beaches are beautiful. Go beyond the tourist regulars and enjoy the coves and deep sand...walk back to Horseshoe....wow! This longer cruise gives you time to explore most of the island. It is much better than the 5 day cruise.

We all had a great time on Carnival Pride. by bovanr

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Carnival Pride / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

There were 8 people in our group. We all enjoyed the cruise on-board Carnival Pride. The room is bigger than Norwegian. Although there were less restaurants on Carnival Pride, but their food was excellent. We enjoyed dining in Normandie Restaurant. It was nice to have the same waiters every night. The price for pictures were quite expensive. They should offer package deal or make it more affordable. It was such a waste to take some many pictures and throwing them out.
