Look What’s Cooking On Carnival Pride

As it embarked on its first sailing of the Europe summer season, Carnival Pride sported the signature Carnival red, white and blue hull design for the first time, after undergoing extensive enhancements that include bow-to-stern upgrades to enhance accessibility on the ship for guests with disabilities.

And to mark the occasion, Carnival Cruise Line President Christine Duffy and Chief Culinary Officer Emeril Lagasse visited the ship in Barcelona, before it set sail.

Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line, said: “I’m so proud of our team. They have done amazing work refreshing and enhancing Carnival Pride just in time for her Europe sailings.”

And Duffy continued: “We welcome everyone on Carnival ships, so we are happy we’ve completed the work to make the ship accessible to those with disabilities. I’m also delighted to see the addition of the Heroes Tribute bar since it has been popular with our guests and has resonated well with military service members and their families.”

The 2,680-guest Carnival Pride has been undergoing enhancements since April 28 and returned to service with several additional Carnival offerings and other improvements, including: a new Heroes Tribute Bar, Chef’s Table, Dreams Studio, and Carnival Adventures Shop.

In addition, the ship’s steakhouse has been refreshed and re-named Fahrenheit 555, the casino expanded and the spa rebranded to the Cloud 9 Spa and Fitness Center.

Carnival Pride will sail a series of European cruises through Oct. 28, 2023, which include various itineraries with departures from Dover, UK; Barcelona, Spain; and Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy.

The ship concludes its European season with a 15-day transatlantic voyage back to the U.S. that departs Oct. 28, 2023, and ends Nov. 12, 2023 in Tampa, Fla.
