We wanted to cruise from Baltimore, no flights this time. Relaxation and good food were our requirements. Since we were in a Suite, we were spoiled, and enjoyed our stateroom more than any other cruise taken in 30 years. Our room stewardess was excellent. Loved the bath tub, the double sinks, and we couldn't begin to fill the closets and drawers.
There was a sofa, with a nice coffee table to play cards on, or have the room service meals there. The arm chair was great to have, the TV was easily seen no matter where we were, in bed, on the chair, or on the sofa.
The only downside was the lamps, we are readers and the lamps could have been better. We are booked on this cruise again in January 2021, and have a Suite again. Our balcony was larger than the regular balconies, we had a lounge chair and table, as well as 2 patio chairs.
The food was excellent, we had anytime dining. Lobster was on the menu one evening, and we ordered it again a second night. The buffet offered great choices, from All American to Oriental and Sandwiches. The Taco bar had all the fixins, including guacamole, which we love. By the way, we had ordered bottled water for our room, which was delivered before we set sail. This saved a lot of money over purchasing single bottles.
We saw passengers carry on 12 packs of sodas which would be a great savings as well.
I highly recommend this cruise on THE CARNIVAL PRIDE.
The wall of windows and door made this perfect. We could look out and have a lovely view. The closets were huge, the drawers many. The bar area set up had mirrors and made the room look much larger. There was a dressing area with a vanity area which was great. We loved our room so much we stayed in it and read books, ordered room service, and were treated like royalty.
