7-Day Cruise From Baltimore to the Bahamas

What a great way to celebrate Veterans Day. Join SPL friends on a cruise to the Bahamas.The Carnival Pride sails from Baltimore so there's no hassle with airports and flights. The ship will be our floating hotel until we get to beautiful beaches. Prices start at $420 per person depending on the cabin you choose and discount (military, past guest, senior). Without any discount it's $450 for an inside cabin and $490 for an ocean view based on double occupancy. Triples and Quads are less and if you qualify for a senior, military, or past guest rate there's additional savings. This price includes all meals onboard the ship, but no alcohol.

These prices include port charges and taxes. The quotes are what is available today but can change due to availability or if the cruise line discontinues a promotion.


Bahamas Itinerary:

Sunday, November 10 Baltimore, MD
Monday, November 11 Fun Day at Sea
Tuesday, November 12 Fun Day at Sea
Wednesday, November 13 Port Canaveral
Thursday, November 14 Nassau
Friday, November 15 Freeport

    Had a great time on my first cruise, had lots of laughs with my table mate. Made it thru my first rocky night without falling out of bed. Enjoyed the excursions that I was able to do. Thanks Donna and it was nice meeting new people to top it all off.

    What a great first cruise!! I had a blast!! Note the !!!!!!!!! Lots of delectable food and fabulous company. Had some very cool excursions, fun entertainment and I personally liked the weather-the rough/windy day was quite an experience. Thanks so much to Donna for pulling it all together. It was wonderful!!

      Sorry this cruise didn't work out for you, Thomas. Maybe you can join us in February. There's less than a dozen signed up but I'm sure it will grow just like this one. Here's the link: http://www.meetup.com...­

    Kerrie,
    Well never heard back from Brian so looks like I'll be missing the boat...lol..I guess he doesn't realize all the cabins are doubles.
    Maybe catch you at another event. Have fun and stay safe....

    i was planning on meeting Bob and driving with him from Bowie - but let me know if you are able to get a cabin and I may join you on the drive.

    I have a seven-passenger van and plenty of parking if anyone wants to meet-up here and leave cars to commute (with all the bags, it might be tough to haul seven people, but plenty of room for at least four with bags.). I'm almost directly south of Baltimore and thirty-forty minutes to the port..). Please email if interested. Thanks, Bob

    November 9, 2013

    • Kerrie C.

      Didn't see your reply or e-mail - I sent you one... Yes this sounds PERFECT! What time do you want me to get there tomorrow? Either you can drive or I will. We'll split the cost of parking

    I just realized that I'm part of Donna's count, but I wanted to introduce myself to the group. I've been a member for some time and never seem to connect... Is anyone else traveling from Bowie/Crofton area that wants to carpool?

      Small world, Bob. See you Sunday.

      November 5, 2013

    • Kerrie C.

      Bob - if you haven't found anyone to share the ride with you, if you can tell me how to meet, maybe we can ride together. would LOVE to share the cost of parking! Not sure where Bowie is in relation to Baltimore... I'm south of Baltimore - are you too?

      November 8, 2013

  • Kerrie C.

    Celeste - do you still need a rider to Baltimore? Since we are roomies, it might be a good way to get acquainted? I would be happy to drive - and its actually closer to Baltimore from my home - I'm right off of 95... Do you want to call me to discuss? If yes, I'll give you my phone number in an e-mail

      Kerrie, I've already made arrangements to be dropped off by a friend at this time. So I will see you in Baltimore. I plan to be there about 130.

    An e-mail went out this morning listing everyone's cabin numbers and times/locations to meet. Forty-six cruisers. This should be fun. See you Sunday!!!!

    November 7, 2013

  • Kerrie C.

    It's $120 to park at the lot near the dock. I would love to car pool with someone and share the cost!! Anyone coming from springfield or who wants to meet up near Springfield????

    I just saw this cruise. So is it to late to get a cabin?
    I'm single and don't know anyone to share with. I went on a carnival cruise last year and am also a veteran.

    Do you need a pass port?

      Rafe sweetie. Scroll down. Answered about three times. You should come. Richard needs a buddy. Too many girls.

      November 2, 2013

    • Gail B.

      Uh oh. Never mind. Richard is no longer with us, it would seem.

      November 2, 2013

  • Gail B.

    Can we plan a get-together on the ship somewhere on Day 1, so we can meet everyone and get room/contact info, excursion plans, etc? Would be nice to be able to find people during the cruise.

      I plan to send out an e-mail with everyone's contact info ... name and cabin number ... the week before we depart.

      1 · October 19, 2013

  • Kerrie C.

    Gail - I think its a great idea to find a place to meet-up on day one so that we can see who all is going. And you said that there is a shuttle from the airport to the boat - what airport? Is it Baltimore airport or one in NOVA? Even if there isn't a shuttle, I would love to be able to carpool - not sure if there is a cost to park - but that would be great to share that cost, if possible...

    1 · October 15, 2013

    • Gail B.

      I've got a full vehicle at this point, so can't handle any more bodies and luggage, but others of you could do that and save parking costs. The shuttle I see is from BWI.

    If you live out of B'more, you might check www.cruisemaryland.com. They have lists of hotels that offer reduced rates, free parking and a hotel shuttle. You could start your vacation a day early!

    UPDATE: Prices have changed. There are still sales, but they are not the same as when this cruise was first posted. Great military discounts if you served (Thank you). Also, you DO NOT NEED A PASSPORT.

    Do you need a passport for this trip?

    September 26, 2013

    • Gail B.

      Okay, I checked with the cruise line. It is recommended that you have a passport, but not required. You will need a birth certificate and/or some other documents, which any of you who don't have one, can determine individually.
