The second member of the Spirit Class of ships from Carnival Cruises; the Carnival Pride has developed a proud reputation for providing comprehensive and varied cruise features in eclectic surroundings. Entering into service in early 2002, the ship was designed for the next generation of cruise holidays – providing complete freedom on the seas for guests to enjoy their holiday exactly how they please.
Designed to maximise guest experience, 80% of the staterooms can boast ocean views, and 80% of those rooms benefit from balconies. This provides the perfect setting for a few quiet hours watching the world go by – that’s if you can tear yourself away from the extensive range of amenities and facilities.
The ship has recently entered dry dock to receive the Fun Ship 2.0 upgrades – meaning guests will now be treated to many of Carnival Cruise Line’s flagship restaurants and entertainment features.
One of the recently-added features to the Carnival Pride was the Seaside Theatre, an open-air movie screen – giving guests the chance to enjoy family films and Hollywood blockbusters under the stars. For a bit of live entertainment, the Playlist Productions theatre boasts a huge range of theatrical performances and musicals.
For guests who want to get more involved with the entertainment – Hasbro, the Game Show invites families to compete against other guests in giant-size board games such as Yahtzee and Connect Four.
Whether you’re looking for a sophisticated meal or a quick bite on-the-go or something you’ve never tried before, the comprehensive range of dining options aboard the Carnival Pride caters for all palates and appetites.
Many of the ship’s eateries also boast comprehensive children’s menus – with kids’ favourites such as pizza, burgers and mac and cheese readily available for even the fussiest of eaters. The Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast club is a fun place to start a day at sea – complete with character interaction and suitably whimsical foods.
The children won’t be bored for a second aboard the Carnival Pride with the fantastic selection of games and entertainment facilities provided. The WaterWorks water park is the perfect place to spend a beautifully sunny day at sea – splashing and winding down the twisting water slides.
The Camp Carnival kids club can help your children make new friends. Three age-specific groups from 2-11 years provide plenty of fun – offering a wide range of activities from sports tournaments to dance parties.
