What Should I Pack?
The first thing to remember is that you're on vacation and you are onboard Carnival Cruises’ ‘Fun Ships’ to have a good time. Secondly, remember to travel light. Keeping these two pieces of advice in mind are very important for packing.
Casual attire and resort wear is typically appropriate attire onboard and in-port. Shorts, slacks, sundresses, blouses, sandals, etc., are appropriate for women, and clothing for men is just as casual. Travelers might also want to consider bringing along a sweater or jacket for cool evenings and inexpensive rain gear in case of a sudden shower. While restaurants typically have casual dress code, there are also instances where you may visit a specialty restaurant or attend a special Captain’s Cocktail Party and Gala Farewell Dinner that requires business casual or formal attire. For days in port where you will be participating in various shore excursions, you should dress accordingly to the dress codes of the sites you are visiting, as well as bring a pair of sneakers for strenuous walking.
Formal Wear: Men: suit and tie, sport coat, tie and slacks; Women: evening dresses, cocktail dresses; pantsuits.
Casual Resort Wear: Men: sport shorts, slacks; Women: dresses, skirts, shorts, Capri pants.
*Please Note: Shorts, t-shirts, tank tops, and bathing attire are not permitted in the Dining Room during dinner.
Fitness / Recreation
Look good by the pool while staying in shape during your cruise vacation onboard Carnival Pride. Chat with Carnival Pride fitness professionals and maybe even pick up some new tips, or check out the jogging track, weights, or aerobics classes to keep up with your own workout regimens from home.
Experience the music, dancing, lights, and costumes that make these spectacular stage shows nothing less than the best. From Vegas to Broadway-styled acts, there is never a lack of variety or excitement during the nightly shows onboard Carnival Pride.
Bars and Nightclubs
Toast to old friends and the new ones you're making every day onboard Carnival Pride at one of the ship’s many bars, get your groove on at the nightclub, or sing along at the piano bar while enjoying an assortment of wines, brews, and spirits.
Catch a rising star as a wide variety of singers, comedians, bands, and musicians perform nightly out on deck or in one of the many clubs and lounges found onboard Carnival Pride. If you’re looking to break out into the entertainment world, try your vocals at karaoke night.
Ready to Relax? Feel the stress sail away as you pamper your body and mind. Soothe sore muscles with a trip to Carnival Cruises’ steam room and sauna or indulge in the ultimate relaxation with a full-body massage. Also, you can look your best while exploring Carnival Pride and all of the ship’s ports-of-call. Featuring a variety of beauty treatments for both men and women, including facials, loofah treatments, manicures, pedicures and hairstyling, the spa on Carnival Pride will definitely keep you looking your best.
Grab the entire family and head down to the Main Dining Room where you’ll be served a delicious multi-cuisine meal with savory options such as steak, seafood, pasta, chicken, or even vegetarian plates. If you’re in the mood for something quick, opt for the 24-hour room service menu or the 24-hour pizzeria. If you have a desire to try something a little fancier, check out David’s, the onboard steakhouse which offers savory and juicy cuts of meat. The buffet restaurant also allows even the pickiest eaters to be satisfied and offers a plethora of international dishes – many of which are inspired by the ports-of-call you visit.
Feeling lucky? Head down to the casino onboard Carnival Pride and try your luck on the slot machines, or play a hand of poker, blackjack, or even roulette.
