Carnival Pride will Resume Year Round Service from the Port of Baltimore
News that Carnival Pride’s last sailing from the Port of Baltimore would be in the fall of 2014 hit home. Although it was my first sailing from this Port during the spring of 2013, I love Carnival and the fact that this Port is only a 30 minute drive away from our home made it all the more sweet. Many of my fellow cruise comrades felt the same. Carnival Pride leaving the Port of Baltimore would have been a huge loss. There are cruisers who actually cruise on this ship every year.
Last month Carnival announced that after its last cruise in the fall of 2014, it will reposition itself in Tampa Florida for the winter and then resume year-round cruises from the Port of Baltimore beginning March 2015. That is not the only surprise that it has for cruisers. The ship is also undergoing a multimillion dollar makeover that will improve the entertainment, bar, dining experience for passengers, and it will also upgrade to an exhaust gas cleaning technology that reduces air emissions from cruise ships.
The itinerary will stay the same. It will feature an exotic seven-day, eastern-Caribbean cruise stopping in:
- Grand Turk
- Half Moon Cay, Bahamas
- Freeport, Bahamas
The other itinerary is a seven-day, Florida/Bahamas cruise that stops in:
- Port Canaveral
- Nassau Bahamas
- Freeport Bahamas
