I was very apprehensive about this cruise as I love to cruise South. I hate the cold. This cruise changed my mind. It was the most relaxing, beautiful cruise I have ever taken. This is a cruise everyone should do at least once. I will ... Read more

I gotta share this, my wife and I are experienced cruisers, we've been cruising since 2002. Back in the good old days if you were VIP you not only didn't have to wait in the long cattle line but you'd be escorted to a side room where you ... Read more

During our previous Alaska trip in 2014, it was sunny and warm every day, and we remarked at the time, “There is no way it could get any better.” Suffice to say, we were absolutely right! One year and one week later, in ... Read more

We read many bad reports of this ship before cruising with Carnival Legend and being lovers of cruising we thought the negative remarks maybe where exaggerated. Not the case as every negative remark is unfortunately true and a lot worse. ... Read more

We sailed on Carnival Miracle from Seattle to Alaska in September. Alaska was fantastic. The scenery in Glacier Bay is breathtaking. The weather we had in mid-September could not have been better. We booked a room with a wrap-around ... Read more

We flew to Seattle to catch the Miracle's final Alaskan voyage for the season (and maybe ever) the day of the cruise since we live in CA. Paid for the ship transfers from the airport to the port as it did not look like there was a very ... Read more

we are Platinum with Carnival, having 30+ cruises under our belts. If this were our first cruise, we would never go on another. The cabin steward could not retain, despite being told multiple times, that we had early dinner. He wanted to ... Read more

Okay. So I get it. It's a cruise. Carnival operates on slim margins so it needs to constantly barade you with requests to purchase drinks or photos. The whole trip felt like a prolonged time-share presentation. [Cons] - Terrible ... Read more

Before I begin, I would just like to point out that we sailed on an incredibly fortunate week where we saw very little rain and fog. Alaskan weather, from what we have read and have been told, we sailed on one of the best weeks, weather ... Read more

We booked our cruise well in advance to get a good balcony room. After we had the cruise almost paid for and the airline paid for they decided to drop the best port from the cruise, Ketchikan. We either had to loose our vacation or just ... Read more

Lets start off by saying this was our first cruise, and there will be more in our future. You see I'm a 5x Cancer survivor and currently in the fight for my life again. To say I had an awesome time would be an understatement. Not only did ... Read more

Dream to see Alaska wasn't the thrill I expected. Our room was great as we opted to get a balcony. I would have hated my room if it didn't have that feature. But if you are a a light sleeper don't stay on the 8th floor, lido deck is noisy ... Read more
