Carnival Pride’s inaugural cruise from Baltimore that departed April 27 was extra special for one family, the Sherrards from Martinsburg, W.V., who were the guests of honor compliments of Carnival Cruise Lines and the Casey Cares Foundation, which provides uplifting programs with a special touch to enhance the lives of critically ill children and their families throughout the Mid-Atlantic states.
To mark the launch of Baltimore’s first year-round cruise program aboard the 2,124-passenger Carnival Pride, Carnival Cruise Lines held a special invitation-only reception aboard the vessel attended by more than 200 community leaders, travel agents and VIPs. Carnival Pride will operate 50 voyages annually, carrying 115,000 passengers a year from Baltimore.

Later today, Carnival Cruise Lines and the Port of Baltimore will launch the city’s first year-round cruise schedule when the 2,124-passenger Carnival Pride sails on its inaugural departure from Baltimore.
Preparations are already underway for Carnival Cruise Lines’ Fun City: Baltimore event which takes place tomorrow in the city’s Inner Harbor.
Looking for a fun time? The Inner Harbor is the place to be on April 25th from 10:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m. when Fun City: Baltimore, sails into town. The event is compliments of Carnival Cruise Lines and will raise funds for Maryland Special Olympics.
Carnival’s sales team will go to any length to support a good cause. That was certainly evident this past weekend when five Carnival sales representatives bravely ventured into the icy waters of Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay as part of the “Polar Bear Plunge” fundraising event benefiting Special Olympics.
