Great cruise with just a few hiccups

Dec 9th, 2018

The Pride was late getting back to port. The parking area was told no one could park till 5:30. They did open earlier. Princess Cay was cancelled. We did get to Nassau at 7PM but who wants to get off at night? Not a good idea at all

Late late late

Dec 8th, 2018

Carnival pride was late getting back to Baltimore. The port was a mess! Thank god for faster to the fun! We missed lunch, then we couldn’t go to Princess Cays due to weather. We got to Nassau at night. Big disappointment for a first cruise!

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

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.

Lovely Caribbean cruise

Dec 4th, 2018

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.

Interesting First Cruise

Dec 3rd, 2018

Overall we ended up having a good time. Princess Cays doesn't have a dock, so if the waters are rough, they won't shuttle you and the day will be cancelled..which is what happened to us. Freeport may look rundown, but the excursion we went to ended up being the best, so don't let the initial impression ruin the island for you! By the end of the cruise there was nothing different going on, more of the same stuff. "Parties" don't last long, 30-minutes to 1-hour, so don't expect it to be like a real party.

Not a great trip, just a few highlights.

Overall, our highlights were one particularly good comedian and some quality photography from the shipboard studio.

Disappointed By engine issues

Nov 28th, 2018

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.

My family and I took our first ever cruise over Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, the ship had a mechanical problem that did not allow the ship to go at max speed so we were only able to go to one of the three ports on our itinerary. The passengers were informed of the situation and were given the option of getting off the ship with a full refund. About 300 passengers left. If you chose to stay on, each passenger received a $50 onboard credit and a free cruise (100% of the amount you spent on that cruise minus taxes and port fees as a credit toward a future cruise). Obviously it was not an ideal situation but the crew was absolutely amazing and did everything they could to make the best of it. Every crew member my family encountered was friendly and professional throughout the entire cruise. Romeo was our room steward and he was awesome, the room was super clean and we were always well stocked with towels. The shows were lots of fun (especially enjoyed 80s to the max). Loved Guy’s Burgers and the burritos at the Blue Iguana. I’m giving a five star rating based on the crew’s efforts as well as Carnival’s handling/compensation for the mechanical problems.

Ok

The ship had problems with its maximum speed capacity so we only were able to visit 1 port. Overall good experience although mother nature was against us and made for very rough travels back to home port.
