April 2015 - Carnival Pride to Caribbean - Eastern
It is so convenient for me to travel out of the Port of Baltimore! I took this same ship in 2010. Ship, clean. First stop, Grand Turk, no need for searching for a beach, one is right in front of you! You definitely need water shoes, very rocky bottom. Second stop, their private island, was perfect! Could have stayed there the entire time. Pool like water, clear and smooth walking. Music, private play area for children. Giant cook out, fun! Last stop, Freeport, lots of shopping, not great prices. We were only there for a short time. We did not opt for the beach, too little time.
Very cold and windy on the ship for four out of the seven days. For Spring break, a Florida port would be smarter. Pools were too chilly!
We ate at David's Steakhouse, twice! Worth the 35 dollars per person. Great food and service.
We also did the Chef's table, only fourteen people. Worth the 75 dollars per person, surpassed all expectations. Unlimited wine! Superb presentation, phenomenal taste experience. You start with a tour of the kitchen, then dinner, fun magic show, unreal dessert! The menu changes all the time. Service was top rate.
My friend enjoyed two spa visits, and could not say enough about the service.
Relaxed, saw three shows, 88 Keys, musical, very good. And two comedians, also very good.
Piano bar was a downer, performer had a cold, and kept on telling us.
