About a month after returning from a cruise on the Carnival Sunshine (more on that later) our family was invited to visit the Carnival Pride in Baltimore, MD for a day of fun, food, friends and fanfare.
We were invited to help Cat in the Hat win the Presidential Race along with Thing 1 and Thing 2 as his running mates. In case you haven’t noticed it’s an election year. You and your family may have noticed some commercials on television.
Along with his recent presidential announcement, The Cat in the Hat released a new book, One Vote, Two Votes, I Vote, You Vote. Perfect timing don’t you think? This book is meant to teach children why we vote, how we vote and who can vote. Of course this is done with the whimsy and fun that other Dr. Seuss books brings to childhood literature. Carnival Cruise Lines wants kids to know they have a voice and it should be heard loud and clear. Maybe this is why Carnival is called the Fun Ship. The kids get exactly what they want and end up having an amazing vacation.
Kid Friendly Cruising with Carnival is easy with all the amenities on board to keep kids occupied for days.
- Camp Carnival, Circle C & Club O2
- Seuss at Sea
- Sweet Spot
- Hasbro the Game Show
- Dive in Movies
- Mini Golf
- and so much more on and off the boat
After a loud parade led by Schwartz, an amazing brunch of Green Eggs and Ham, Froot Loop French Toast, some photo ops and chatting with old and new friends we were given the freedom to roam the boat and see how it measures up to the other ships we’ve already seen.
The Carnival Pride has recently gone through a renovation to include fan favorite dining/drinking options such as Guy Burger Joint, Red Frog Pub, Alchemy Bar, BlueIguana Cantina and more.
What I found was a very romantic feel as soon we got above the belly of the boat. I’m not sure what was new but I fell in love with the lighting, the bold furnishings and all the hallways. Those gave a secret, tucked away feeling.
Overall we’ve decided that the Carnival Pride is the next ship we’re boarding for a cruise. We already love cruising and with the amenities added in recent years we know we’ll have a wonderful time.
