We were invited to accompany some relatives on this ship, as they had never been to the ports or countries that the ship visited. The things that we remember most about the cruise ship, are all bad, except for the ports of call, where we ... Read more

Booked this cruise well in advance and couldn't wait to go. Getting on the ship wasn't too bad but the Long Beach port has much to be desired. Other ports like Orlando were much easier to deal with and you weren't left standing outside ... Read more

My title sums it up. I thought it would be nice to have 4 days before and after visiting Hawaii. It did not think about the fact we may have to skip a port or 2. Even that did not seem too bad until it happened. In Honolulu, we were told ... Read more

My husband and I are regular cruisers. The majority of our cruises have been with Carnival with no really bad experiences until now. I have to say that it will probably be awhile before we take another. We chose this one because we ... Read more

We wanted a cruise with maximum sea days and this cruise fit the bill. The Miracle is great, lots of activities, bars and sitting areas. The lido and sun decks have plenty of seating and loungers. Mini golf was just tricky enough to be ... Read more

Chose this cruise to "get away and have a good time." Sadly with cruises of longer length there is a much older crowd. The ships nightlife was not as energized as my previous cruises. Carnival did do a good job of trying to ... Read more

We picked this 15 day from Long Beach, California to Hawaii so we didn't have to fly to Honolulu. Third time on the Miracle and it's better than ever. So many great places to relax and enjoy sea days. Service was the best of our 15 ... Read more

Hawaii was the final state for us to visit. We signed up for this cruise on a previous Carnival cruise and got $250 on board credit, plus $250 for being a stockholder! The 4 sea days going to Hawaii did not seem as long as the 4 sea days ... Read more

This was our fourth cruise with carnival. We really enjoyed our royal caribbean cruises but don't think the extra $$$ers are worth it so we go carnival as they are much more affordable for our income. Always wanted to visit pearl harbor ... Read more

I have 17 cruises under my belt, three of them with Carnival. I haven't sailed Carnival since 1996 on the Jubilee. The 1996 cruise was a comparison to the Tropical that I did in 1987, the loss of quality was noticeable but not extreme. The ... Read more

We travelled to Hawaii from Vancouver, leaving Sept. 13, 2016. We were delighted with the entire cruise. We paid $1499 a person, and for this amount of money, where can you have 10 nights accommodation, all the food you can eat, ... Read more

We chose to take this cruise aboard Carnival simply because I enjoy cruising and my wife wanted to visit Hawaii. Leaving from Vancouver was convenient, since we are from Seattle. Getting though customs was relatively smooth. While ... Read more

I am giving this cruise a two star rating for two main reasons. One the food on board was bad. Normally when I cruise after having a meal in the main dining room I end the meal thinking wow, that was a great meal, I can't wait to see ... Read more
