Carnival Cruise Lines returned to the Port of Baltimore and launched a year-round cruise program on Sunday, March 29th, when the Carnival Pride departed on a seven-day cruise to the Bahamas from the Cruise Maryland Terminal!
Carnival Pride’s year-round schedule from Baltimore encompasses a wide range of departures, from five-day Bermuda cruises to seven- to 14-day voyages visiting top destinations in the Caribbean, The Bahamas and Florida.
Carnival Pride recently underwent an extensive multi-million-dollar dry dock that added a variety of Fun Ship 2.0 innovations, including new dining venues such as Guy’s Burger Joint, Blue Iguana Cantina and Bonsai Sushi, exciting bar concepts like Alchemy Bar, Red Frog Pub and the poolside Red Frog Rum Bar and Blue Iguana Tequila Bar, as well as new entertainment choices like Hasbro, The Game Show; Seuss at Sea and Playlist Productions. A massive Water Works water park featuring Green Thunder, the fastest and steepest waterslide at sea, was added, as well.
You’ll find yourself with room to move at Beauties Dance Club, and a hard time sitting still at Playlist Productions. All around you’ll discover even more ways to stay cool, like an adult-only pool at Serenity, a fun-only midship pool featuring a retractable roof, and more! Alongside the pool is the big-fun Seaside Theatre. Camp Carnival, Circle “C” and Club O2 prove that there are even hotspots for all the kids in the family. There is no shortage of fun to be had on these sailings!
Carnival Pride’s five-day Bermuda sailings feature two days and one night at King’s Wharf with two fun days at sea. Six-day Bahamas cruises call at the popular ports of Nassau and Freeport, while the seven-day Bahamas itinerary also includes a call at Port Canaveral, Fla., with easy access to Orlando’s attractions. Seven- and eight-day eastern Caribbean cruises feature Grand Turk, the private Bahamian island of Half Moon Cay, and Freeport. Eight-day Bahamas sailings visit Charleston, S.C.; Port Canaveral and Nassau.
For cruisers who prefer longer length cruises, Carnival Pride offers two Carnival Journeys adventures departing from Baltimore. An 11-day Carnival Journeys voyage departs Baltimore Jan. 17, 2016, calling at Grand Turk, Aruba, Curaçao, Bonaire, and St. Croix, ending in San Juan Jan. 28, 2016. There is also a 14-day Carnival Journeys voyage, operating roundtrip from Baltimore March 13-27, 2016, and featuring Grand Turk, San Juan, St. Thomas, Dominica, St. Lucia, Martinique, Antigua and St. Maarten.
Now more than ever, Carnival Pride makes an excellent vacation choice! I am excited to be able to tour the ship on May 31 when it is in port and I will bring you great photos from this new 2.0 Ship!
