  1. 4 times on Pride last year and twice this year so far and doing the 1/5/20 Journey's on Pride to start off the New Year๐Ÿ˜Š
  2. I was also looking forward to meeting up at Calico Jacks in Bermuda last week. We all know that didn't happen as the Pride ended up going to Grand Turk and Amber Cove and Sunrise had their sea days cruise! Despite the very rocky seas and change of itinerary, it was still a good cruise... Looking forward to starting the Cruising New Year on Pride Journey's 1/5/20....compliments of the casino...lol๐Ÿ˜Š Hope to meet up one of these days!
  3. All of the certificates I got clearly said...." a gift from your cabin steward" and I felt badly for newbie cruisers who really believed that the stewards purchased these certificates for them.
  4. Spa and photo certificates have been in my cabin on the last few cruises on Pride, even in months when it wasn't my birthday. I don't use either service so they aren't of any use to me and of course, you can't pass them on to someone else since they're non-transferable. I certainly hope that people don't really believe that these are "gifts" from the cabin steward...LOL It's advertising...at it's worst.
  5. I was on a Premier on Pride in March. We got welcome bags and a lot of other stuff during the week so I have no complaints. I was under the impression that I'd be playing with FUN PLAY but was happy to get $1000.00 cash for the casino on the first day despite people saying they no longer give real money...LOL Got a repeat free cruise from that and going on 9/15 on Pride to Bermuda...port charges only, free drinks and $200 OBC. I'm happy.๐Ÿ˜Š
  6. Family Drama. Been there. I feel your pain. This is why I travel solo...LOL
  7. I was on Pride for Super Bowl Sunday in February 2018. They had it on the big screen on Lido. I remember some people complaining that it wasn't on at any of the indoor bars. I didn't watch it, so it didn't matter to me.
  8. First Carnival cruise was Feb. 2014 and made it to Platinum Apr. 2018. Going back on Pride again in September and upon completion will be at 100 days...halfway to Diamond!๐Ÿ˜Š
  9. Pride has had the flat panel TV's for awhile. Don't know about internet since I don't use it but all I hear is complaints...lol
  10. The casino on Pride is most definitely open when in port of Bermuda 9PM-5AM. It doesn't matter if the cruise is a Premier or not.๐Ÿ˜Š
  11. The casinos on the ships are open from 9PM-5AM when docked in Bermuda.๐Ÿ˜Š
  12. You just got a job on a Carnival ship based on your area of expertise. Where would you be working? ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜„ I'd love to be a comedy headliner!
  13. I just came back from a Premier cruise on Pride. There were 177 of us. Everyone wearing a Premier lanyard was smoking in the casino...and most were playing the $5 and $10 slots and were in there for hours on end. A non-smoker sat next to me and put in a five dollar bill and cashed out at $3.00 and left.๐Ÿ˜„ Who do you think the casino hosts want in there?๐Ÿ˜
  14. Use sign and sail at the slots.......no fee, even for OBC At the tables.......3% fee UNLESS you're using OBC ๐Ÿ˜„
  15. There is no 3% fee when you use your sign and sail in the slot machine. Just charge whatever amount to your card. NO FEE They charge if you use your card at the tables.
  16. Eat something before you board and book early Steakhouse (5:30) for the first night. Don't have to set foot on Lido that first day๐Ÿ˜„
  17. I just got off Pride on Sunday and was very happy to get CA$H on the Premier sailing. I was expecting Fun Play and was very surprised that we all got CA$H since most of the offers were $1000.00๐Ÿ˜Ž
  18. Just off Pride today. Ken will be back after vacation, returning June 2nd! Dario will be filling in till then...
  19. I spoke to Ken recently and his last cruise on Pride (for now) will be March 10th. He'll be gone for awhile. I'm happy to be sailing with him that week and will try to find out who's taking over!
  20. They had the Cool Lounge on Deck 5, Cigar Bar, but that was 4 years ago so I don't know if they still have it. Love that place!
  21. My final advice is JUST DO IT...1000 people are going to have 1000 opinions. There are moaners, whiners, complainers and fortunately some positive people who love to cruise. Only YOU will know if you like it and some do and some don't. My first cruise was long before the days of internet so I went with no idea of what it was all about other than a few friends saying it was a great vacation. Thirty cruises later, I like it! Baltimore is the easiest terminal I've sailed from (some will disagree) and Pride is perfect for a first timer since it's smaller and easy to get around. Wishing you a great time! ENJOY!
  22. I love the Pride and am going for the 5th time next month. I went 4X last year and like Deck 5. I've done the obstructed balcony and it was fine for me. You can take food from the buffet area to enjoy on your balcony. You can get sandwiches from the Deli and pizza is available 24-7. You can also order room service. You can pre-pay gratuities before you leave or they will be added to your sign and sail while on the cruise. You can tip extra to those who provided great service but it's not mandatory. I tip the room steward extra as well as the Maitre D because I request a specific table in the MDR and have always gotten it. Overall the ship is great and the size for me is perfect!
