The Carnival Pride was built in 2001 at the Kvarrner Masa-Yards, in Finland.(The same shipyard that built RCI Voyager Class, and several RCI Vision class ships)
She was the second of 4 Spirit Class Ships. I sailed on Carnival Miracle in September '08, and loved the ship.
I made a "LIVE" report from that sailing that can be viewed HERE, and also made a short video that can be viewed HERE.
Our ports will feature Port Canaveral, Nassau, BHS, and Freeport, BHS.
I have been to each of these ports twice during 2009. Once on Norwegian Majesty, in Jan 2009, and once on Norwegian GEM in March 2009.
I am very excited about sailing on Carnival Pride. . . I really enjoyed myself last year when I sailed on her sister ship from New York.
Mrs. Radio will also be sailing, as well as several family members. They are also excited to be on a ship for 8 days. . . with no cooking or cleaning !
I toured the Pride earlier in the year while she was in port, and I can tell you tha Baltimore is very happy to be the home of Carnival Pride for a few years. Cruise Maryland at the Port of Baltimore is a great place to sail from.
Those of you who have followed my "LIVE" reports with RCI, and HAL, and NCL already know that I will provide daily comments and trip
reports from this cruise.
My first "LIVE" report on Carnival was in August 2008 on Carival Victory. (Cruise To Canada)
I will also try to post many "LIVE" pics daily (as long as I am able to maintain a valid wireless connection)
I should be getting to Cruise Maryland by around 1230PM. Sail Away is scheduled for 530PM.
The forecast for tomorrow sounds good (Sunny and 67f), and I will post once I get set up in my Cabin !
So sit back, and relax. . .this should be a fun cruise ! I hope that my internet connection stays active.
Thanks for tuning in !
