Carnival Pride Cruise Review by KPookey
- Sail Date: July 2019
- Destination: Eastern Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Balcony
The entertainment was great and so fun. There were 2 deck parties with great music from the 70s, 80s and 90s that fit the typical cruiser very well. Dr E was the best cruise director I’ve sailed with. Having 3 pools on board helped to spread out the crowd on sea days. There was a perfect blend of activities and music styles for ALL to enjoy. There was a fridge in our room, we stashed our water we purchased ($4.50/12) and soda/ wine we brought. My 13 year old LOVED circle c club. I barely saw her all week. She made a ton of friends, which was great.
Our first stop was Grand Turk. We shopped, swam in the area just off the pier and went to Margaritaville. Margaritaville had a fun pool party. Our second stop was Half Moon Cay...stunning, but we waited too long to get tender tickets and didn’t get there until 11:30. By 3ish, the island started clearing out. It was a scorcher and we were ready to get back onboard anyway. Our last stop, Freeport was the dud of the group. It is not pretty where you dock, at ALL. Really...take an excursion, we did dolphin experience/ snorkeling.
Debarkation is late on this itinerary, however we were off 45 minutes earlier than advertised, consider rolling off your own luggage if possible. Also, the fitness center is sort of small. With the recent incidents in the Carribean and Mexico...I must say, I felt completely safe and everyone I encountered ashore was wonderful and friendly. I’ve sailed RCI and other lines, but I’ve been spoiled by Carnival. It was the best time I’ve ever had on a cruise.

Grand TurkThere are nice shops a short walk off the boat. There is a free, giant pool and loungers at Margaritaville and a great party atmosphere that is somewhat family friendly. The beach can be accessed steps from the boat.View All 2,098 Grand Turk Cruise Port Reviews
