?'s about the Pride


logcabin

Recommended Posts

I'm heading out on the CCL Pride out of Baltimore on 10/4.. I have a few questions. First is, do the slots in the casino take quarters or are they the ones you put you card in (or tokens). I have a ton of quarters I want to bring with me for the slots. What is the percentage of people dressing up on formal night? and how many formal nights will there be?

 

Thanks.

The slots still take quarters, but you can also use your card to set up an account. We are just back from the 8 day itinerary, which will be different from yours, but we had 2 Elegant nights, dress was all over the spectrum. We enjoy dressing up and could care less what others do. We had a great time, our highlight was the "Behind The Fun" tour on the last sea day.

Also, please tell the casino hostess, Adina, that Wess & Sally miss her. She will get a kick out of it, we have seen her on our last 3 cruises.

The casino will take your quarters==but if you win it will be put on your sign and sail card- You set it up using a pin.

 

The casino part of your card is seperated from your sign and sail card--make sure you cash it out the last night or you will lose your cash.

Hi Logcabin - we're going on the 10/4 cruise too. It's our first Carnival cruise (though we've been on other lines) and I'm looking forward to it. From what I've read, formal nights aren't as "formal" as they used to be and the general population wears whatever you'd wear for a night out at a nice restaurant, though some still prefer to get very dressed up. As for the casino, I'm not sure how this one works but I'm sure the machines will take your quarters. We'll be spending time there too! Hope we get to meet you.:) (We'll be celebrating our 45th anniversary on this cruise.)

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR 45TH

 

We are sailing on 11/1 so I'm hoping you will give us a review when you return. Have a wonderful time.

I'd roll the quarters, and get bills to take on the cruise (the slots take bills as well). Agree with the others that it will be 2 formal nights and most dressed up. I'm used to seeing people not get dressed up as much now, so I don't really care if they do or not.

 

Adina was hilarious. I'm a big tall guy and she would walk up and bump stomachs with me LOL.

Thanks, Cathyoo! I'm can't wait. We splurged this trip and got a suite (midship) on Empress Deck. I've never had a suite before...but this cruise is special, right? Hope you have a great time on 11/1 and I'll review our cruise when we get home.

Anyone on the 8/21 sailing, we heard from some crew members that it was a little rough coming home, did you think so? The Atlantic was extremely calm for us the whole way and we only had short periods of rain some mornings, nothing to keep us away from the ports.

I think they did, but I won't swear under oath to that fact.

 

I'm positive it takes quarters. I was on 8/29 with Sally and Wes. I had some quarters left over that I had for laundry (yes, I'm an idiot who does laundry on vacation - cuts back on the amount of clothes you have to pack!). I put those extra quarters in a machine the last night instead of a batch of wash. I would have been better doing the laundry - at least I would have gotten clean clothes out of the deal! :p

We sailed 8/21 and had two formal nights. I would say the majority dressed for the occasion; in my opinion, those who didn't stood out.

 

We were on that cruise and I would agree with you regarding the attire on "Cruise Elegant" nights. Especially the first night, the vast majority of folks dressed up nicely, most men in suits and most women in nice dresses or dressy pant suits. There were a surprising number of men turned out in black tie and women dressed to the nines. It was nice.
