Carnival Pride - Baltimore

We departed Canada with one snow storm just ending and another in the forecast. We decided to depart 2 days early and overnight in Scranton PA leaving us with just a 4 hour drive the next day into Baltimore. We arrived in Baltimore at 11 am on Saturday with misty rain and chilly. We stayed at the Brookshire Suites. This was a wonderful hotel with lots of room and very friendly.

The room cost us 125 dollars for the night, but they gladly kept our car for the duration of the cruise thus eliminating the 105 dollar fee for Pier parking. That resulted in a total cost for the room being about 20 dollars for the night. They also provided us with free transfers to and from the ship at our time and convenience, and this service was wonderful. Also provided was a delightful morning breakfast at no extra cost in a room at the top of the hotel with a great view of the city and inner harbour.

 While in Baltimore we spent Saturday afternoon at the National Aquarium and touring the Inner Harbor.  It was a great day in spite of the weather.

 I will continue with embarkation on my next post.  “Our First views and general impressions of the Carnival Pride”
