On its new winter schedule from Tampa, Carnival Pride sails Sundays to Cozumel, Roatán's Mahogany Bay, Belize City and Grand Cayman or Costa Maya.
After its three-week docking at Grand Bahama Shipyard, the 2002-built Carnival Pride emerged with four new Playlist Productions shows—''80s Pop to the Max,' 'Heart of Soul,' 'Getaway Island' and '88 Keys: The Rock and Roll Piano Show.'
The ship's entertainment lineup also added 'Hasbro, The Game Show.'
New dining choices include Guy's Burger Joint, developed with celebrity chef Guy Fieri; the full-service Bonsai Sushi restaurant and BlueIguana Cantina, serving Mexican fare. Further additions are the cocktail pharmacy-themed Alchemy Bar, the Caribbean-inspired RedFrog Pub, EA SPORTS Bar with a huge 16-monitor video wall, and the poolside BlueIguana Tequila Bar and RedFrog Rum Bar.
Cherry on Top, selling candy, novelties and gifts, is now on Carnival Pride.
A large WaterWorks park with the steep and fast Green Thunder water slide was installed, too.
Carnival Pride will operate from Tampa through March then reposition to Baltimore for year-round five- to 14-day cruises.
