Contents Show

Over the weekend Carnival Pride returned to Baltimore’s Cruise Maryland Terminal after a short hiatus in Florida. Not only did she return, but she returned as a slicker and sexier ship after undergoing Carnival’s Fun Ship 2.0 enhancement.

What is Fun Ship 2.0?

Launched in Fall 2011, this is Carnival’s $500m initiative that will upgrade 14 ships with new bars, dining and entertainment options. Carnival teamed up with celebrities like Food Network’s Chef Guy Fieri and comedian George Lopez to help curate and design concepts.
