"LIVE" from Carnival Pride - January 26, 2014

Recommended Posts

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!

So nice to see you back on the high seas! I'll be following . . . and yes, with my cup o'joe, too!

 

Thanks to MedicKen for posting a reminder over on the RCI boards.:D

Hi Radio, like you I haven't been on the Pride since 2009. We did the other itinerary then and will again in May. I'm especially interested any updates or changes. I assume it wasn't recently updated since they don't have a Guys Burgers yet.

 

Please report on the entertainment and if possible the menus.

 

Thanks and Bon Voyage!j

Radio,

As others have mentioned, my thanks also go to MedicKen for alerting us to your "Live" cruise review. Now for some weird reason I'm in the mood for some coffee but that might interfere with "watching the news" later. :p

 

Smooth sails.

Another thank you to MedicKen for coming over to the RCI board to notify us of this cruise. I would hate to think that I've missed sailing with you!

 

Smart man for leaving this bitter cold! I'll be here following along. :)

Glad I came across this post. We are sailing her in less than a month, and we too will be on deck 8. We are so looking forward to this cruise! We are also anxious to hear about the weather and sailing conditions. I sailed on her last year when they cancelled the cruise and snuck a CTN in at the end of the week. It was so cold, and windy we hid inside a lot, but we were sailing, so we didn't care! :D

I have to work tomorrow, so hopefully when I get home I'll have some reading and pictures to enjoy. :D
