Hello everyone ! We have arrived at the Cruise Maryland Terminal of the Port of Baltimore.

We tied up at about 10AM, and the first call for self assist was at about 10:30AM.

The final call for passenger Debarkation should be at about 12:30PM.
We are driving, so that is the time we will leave the Pride. They may have to make an announcement like " Hey Radio ! It's time to leave !"

We were able to see Grandeur of the Seas due to her late departure caused by the storm. (Thanks firmans15 for the update !)


Here are a few pics from our calm transit up the Chesapeake Bay this morning. . .



Thanks for tuning in !

maybe we can talk carnival into taking paypal, and we could all chip in a little and keep him onboard....

I just found your "LIVE" review and thought you might like to see what you looked like from our perspective. We were coming up Chesapeake Bay on the Mercury Nov 8th at about midnight and I saw a cruiseship in the distance. I got all excited when I saw the Whaletail and knew it was the Pride. We were on her in May. Beautiful ship! I was surprised at how quiet y'all were. First night on board, I figured you'd be raising the roof! Sure didn't sound like a Carnival ship. LOL!
Sorry the picture is so dark, I don't have a great camera.

Thanks Radio for the great review-loved it- and sorry for you all that it has to end. We will be on her the week of January 24th-woohoo-counting down the days and am ready to pack. LOL Guess I better get through Thanksgiving and Christmas first.

Thanks for sharing with us

Thanks, Radio. That was fun reliving the cruise. I was on the ship with you. Sorry we didn't see you at the CC Meet and Greet. The cruise was great, despite the wind and rough seas!! Friday night into Saturday morning was kinda bumpy and noisy in our cabin. We were on the 6th deck all the way forward and it was not pleasant. Eventually, I was able to leave the cabin Saturday mid morning and felt 100 times better mid ship on the Lido deck. Anyway, it was a great cruise, and I wish we were still on the ship!!
