I have heard the Carnival Pride will be refurbished in November. Anyone know anything about this? It really needed it when we sailed in May.Yes, the first few weeks of November....I believe.

We were on the 9/5 sailing and cannot say that it was in bad shape. It was very obvious of some things (many tiles were missing around the pools, paint on the balcony in disrepair, chairs needing to be cleaned, etc) but generally the ship is in good shape unless you're really looking for problems.I agree, I think she just needs a touch up. She is a great ship! We really enjoyed her!!
Anyone else think that Baltimore needs a new ship besides the Pride? The Pride has been here for too long now and is scheduled to be here through 2014 per Carnival Bookings Websiteno!

The Pride seems nice but it just looks dark inside... Could also do better 7 day itineraries. Maybe Half Moon Cay, Nassau, Key West for example. Would love to see a Dream Class ship in Baltimore!
I'd love to see a bigger ship also, but those pesky bridges (Key and Bay) that allow us to connect the 2 sides of the state seem to be a problem.

US Navy, too many to count but included 4 Med cruises (totaling 21 months) 1975-1992
I cruise because that's where the ocean is.
It beats haze gray and underway any day!
I did not find her as dark as many photos suggest, and certainly not everywhere onboard.Thats good to know because all of the photos that I look at seem dark
Sure hope they are not going to be working while we're cruising!
According to the web site the Pride has back to back cruises from Nov 3rd through the entire month of Nov. So what's up Mach?
