Carnival Pride Arrives To Sail Year-Round From Baltimore

The Port of Baltimore has welcomed its first cruise ship to homeport year-round in the city. Accompanied by The Pride of Baltimore, a replica of a 19th-century topsail schooner, the 2,124-passenger Carnival Pride arrived at the South Locust Point Cruise Terminal, where a reception was held onboard the vessel, during which a traditional maritime plaque exchange took place between Captain Alessandro Galotto and port and community officials.


From Baltimore, the ship will sail 6-, 7- and 8-day voyages to the Bahamas, Caribbean and Florida until 29 August 2009, calling at Freeport, Nassau, Half Moon Cay (a private island owned by affiliate Holland America Line), Grand Turk and Port Canaveral in Florida. Carnival Pride will then sail a year-round 7-day schedule starting 6 September 2009, with Eastern Caribbean and Bahamas/Florida itineraries available.


The 88,500-GRT Carnival Pride features a selection of amenities and facilities onboard, including 4 swimming pools, Spa Carnival, the Taj Mahal show lounge and the Winner’s Club Casino. Guests enjoy gourmet dining at the ship’s many food and beverage outlets, such as the Normandie restaurant, Mermaid’s Grill Lido and David’s, where Carnival Pride’s supper club is hosted. 5 types of accomodation options are available to guests, ranging from interior staterooms to the luxurious penthouse suite.


With the new year-round voyages from Baltimore, Carnival Cruise Lines now operates cruises from 19 ports in North America onboard its fleet of 22 vessels. The world’s largest cruise line by number of passengers carried, Carnival will carry an estimated 3.8 million passengers in 2009.
