Carnival Pride is a Spirit-class cruise ship. Like the majority of her sisters Carnival Spirit and Carnival Legend, she is owned by Carnival Corporation and operated by Carnival Cruise Line. Built by Kværner Masa-Yards Shipyard in Helsinki, Finland, Carnival Pride was laid down on March 30, 2000, launched on March 29, 2001 and completed and delivered to Carnival on December 12, 2001. She was christened by American scientist and astronaut Tamara Jernigan in Port Canaveral, Florida, on January 7, 2002.
Carnival Pride has 1,062 passenger cabins. She is currently based out of Baltimore, Maryland. Carnival Pride began sailing from Port Canaveral, in January 2002 to Eastern and Western Caribbean ports. Then, from 2002 to March 2009, she sailed year-round cruises from Long Beach, California to the Mexican Riviera.Since April 2009, Carnival Pride was the first ship to sail year-round Bahamas/Caribbean cruises out of Baltimore, Maryland. From Baltimore, she also sailed a two-day cruise to nowhere without making any port of call from November 2 to 4, 2012, as a result of canceling an October departure due to closed port traffic after Hurricane Sandy.

Each model requires hundreds of hours to finish and must go through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop.
