About Carnival Cruise Lines

The Carnival Corporation is the largest cruise company in the world and operates several different brands. The “Carnival Cruise Lines” brand has the largest fleet in the group with 24 vessels. The fleet sails almost exclusively in the seas of North America and the Caribbean. For Carnival Cruise Lines the guest’s experience of the ships is at least as important as the visited destinations.

The Ship

The Carnival Pride, which is a “Spirit Class” ship, entered service in January 2002 and went through a serious refurbishment in 20013. It has a length of about 293 meters, which lets it accommodate up to 2.124 passengers.

Atmosphere on board

Carnival Cruise Lines calls their vessels “fun ships” and yes: it is very difficult not to be entertained on board. But this does not mean that passengers will feel disturbed by wildly partying people all day. There is enough room to relax and enjoy some quietness. The dress-code reflects this concept: casual attire is perfect for almost any situation. Only for dinner in the main restaurants a more elegant style is recommended. There are even one or two festive evenings, where evening dress is required, but you may easily escape this when not dining in the à la carte restaurants. Though guests come from all over the world, usually most people on board are US citizens.

Staterooms

The design of all staterooms is modern and comfortable. 80% of all cabins are outside cabins of which 80% have a private balcony. You will find all amenities you would expect from a good hotel room. With about 17 m² all staterooms are very spacious. If you prefer even more private space the Premium Balcony staterooms provide about 21 m² and the Grand Suites even 26 m².

Food and Beverages

Explore the world’s different cuisines in the numerous restaurants or enjoy the daily multi-course dinners in the main à la card restaurants. Here you may choose between early, late and open seating. If you prefer it more casually how about a pizza or a burger? Of course you might also try out the 24/7 room-service. Carnival Cruise Lines caters for every taste.

Entertainment, Sports and Relaxation

As Carnival Cruise Lines calls these vessels their “fun ships” you can be sure that you will be entertained very well. Las Vegas style shows in the grand show lounge, thrilling games in the casino, freshly mixed cocktails in one of the lounges, your talent shown in the Karaoke bar or on the dancefloor to live music – Expect it all and get it all.

 

Of course the Carnival Pride also offers many ways to relax, such as the spa area where a wide choice of treatments is offered. For those who feel the urge to move the fitness area and sporting facilities are great choices.
