Hello everyone ! I am very happy that tomorrow morning I will be on my first Cruise for 2014. Yes, I will be posting “LIVE” from Carnival Pride.
It has been awhile since I was on Carnival Pride, but I have toured her several times over the last several years and I have noticed a few changes
from 2009 since I last sailed her. That “LIVE” post can be viewed HERE.
Again, I will be aboard Pride for 7 Nights as we sail to the Bahamas (Port Canaveral, Nassau, and Freeport)


My “LIVE” post will include daily commentary of my views while onboard. I will try to have photos posted daily of various ship views, public areas, and cabins.
I really miss the Carnival Pride Winners Club Casino . . . I remember it as being very Radio “friendly”. Of course my posting will be dependent on my ability to
maintain a valid wireless connection. I remember the Pride to have a fast connection, and I should be able to post from my cabin as well as most public areas.


There has been a lot of discussion about Carnival Cruise Lines leaving Baltimore (Oct 2014), but it will only be for a short time. I was told that Carnival will be
back at Cruise Maryland in April 2015. . ..Yes that means Baltimore will only have about 5 months without a CCL vessel. I am not aware of what the ship will be,
but I will try to find out if I can.



The forecast for tomorrow is quite cold (28F) and sunny. We should have a nice but very cold Sailaway, but I may not stay out on the decks for long.
I don’t think that there will be too many swimmers until at least Tuesday. We will be at sea for Monday and Tuesday as we are scheduled to arrive in
Port Canaveral on Wednesday morning. The cold front may have a negative effect on the temperatures in Florida this week, but no worries . . . I will be on a Cruise !


Sit back and relax (with a coffee), and join me for a week in the Bahamas. . .



Thanks for tuning in.

Love the Pride. Will be looking forward to your review.
Hopefully the weather will cooperate when in Florida, but, hey, you're on a cruise.
Enjoy.

Subscribing. Love to follow your Live posts. Have followed you when you were on Grandeur. Looking forward to hear all about the Pride as I will be sailing on her June 29. Anything special about her would be appreciated, being that it has been about five years or so since I was on her. Have a great cruise in the nice WARMER weather.

Radio-have a wonderful cruise on the Pride. We have cruised on her twice and love the ship and crew.

If you get a chance check out the comedy club one night. We always enjoy that.

Hope the casino is "Radio friendly". It was pretty good to us in Nov.

Mark,

Have a great cruise. I will be enjoying it vicariously. As you may have heard, I had to cancel my EX cruise this week due to a bad fall so I'll have to be happy with armchair cruising. This week was totally jinxed - it turns out I'm missing a major norovirus cruise experience. Some of my friends have been sick, the weather down sucked, no ship activities, and Labadee was skipped.

May your experience be wonderful!
