Can't help you with Baltimore - I'm on the other coast. But as to what to bring? If anyone wears glasses, bring one of those eyeglass repair kits. If you have an older camera, bring batteries for it. Bring Pepto or Immodium for tummy upsets - you don't want to go to the infirmary with overeating... Bring a good attitude and lots of enthusiasm.

Congratulations Jakeplays! Welcome to Cruise-Chat. There may be some helpful information in the FAQ section of our board and the Ports/Hotels/Transfer sections. Bring about half of what you think you'll need, sunscreen, passports, a big smile, and a great attitude. Just be warned, cruising is addictive Most anything you forget, they'll have in the shops on board. Just be sure to bring enough prescription medication, if there is any. Please look around on our board and if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. I can't help you with Baltimore either, but I'm sure there are members that can. Best wishes for a wonderful cruise, and once again, welcome aboard!

Hi Jakeplays, and Welcome to Cruise-Chat!

Congratulations on your first cruise! You picked a really nice ship for your first one. There is an exceptional description of Camp Carnival programs for the kids in the FAQ section written by LHP. Here is a link.

You can use the "Find" tab to find a wealth of information here. Take a little time to explore the forum sections and you'll get the hang of it. We are all here to help, so ask away.

Welcome aboard,

Jakeplays If you are taking batteries and a charger,take a 3 or 6 strip power supply with you,as i found out,some chargers will not plug in the plug because it is so close to the table top. We also take some extra metal hangers as sometimes there is not enuf hangers in the closet and at the end we leave them. The Pride is a very nice ship,it still is one of our favorite ships.We had really good food and good service on it a few years ago.
Have Fun !!
