Carnival Pride has kicked off a winter schedule of seven-day Caribbean cruises from the Port of Tampa following an extensive US$75 million dry dock that added a wide variety of Fun Ship 2.0 innovations, including four Playlist Productions shows.
On its new winter schedule from Tampa, Carnival Pride departs Sundays on week-long cruises to four Caribbean destinations – Cozumel, Mexico; Mahogany Bay, Isla Roatan; Belize City, Belize; and George Town, Grand Cayman, or Costa Maya, Mexico.
New features on the Carnival Pride include dining choices like Guy’s Burger Joint developed in tandem with celebrity chef Guy Fieri, the full-service Bonsai Sushi, and BlueIguana Cantina serving authentic Mexican fare, as well as innovative beverage venues like the cocktail pharmacy-themed Alchemy Bar, the Caribbean-inspired RedFrog Pub, EA SPORTS Bar featuring a huge 16-monitor video wall, and the poolside BlueIguana Tequila Bar and RedFrog Rum Bar.
A massive WaterWorks aqua park highlighted by Green Thunder, the fastest and steepest water slide at sea, along with audience favourite Hasbro, The Game Show, offering larger-than-life adaptations of the company’s iconic games, and Cherry on Top, a “candy and more store,” were also added.
Guests sailing on Carnival Pride can also enjoy four new Playlist Productions shows – 80s Pop to the Max, Heart of Soul, Getaway Island and 88 Keys: The Rock and Roll Piano Show.
Carnival Pride will operate from Tampa through March 2015 then reposition to Baltimore for year-round five- to 14-day departures from that port.
