We booked this for a "cheap & cheerful" break, and after reading criticisms of this ship we were pleasantly surprised. Embarkation was quick and easy, less than half an hour from luggage pick-up through security, US ... Read more

Carnival Legend. What can I say? Decor: Tacky. Food: Average at best (had me wishing I could be at home to cook my own meals). Entertainment: Average to Decent. Musicals were OK, but did not appreciate the juggler joking about ... Read more

I've noted several other recent Miracle cruisers recently posting about the ship's propulsion issues, and felt obliged to post what I know. We had a marvelous two week cruise to Hawaii this past September. As we booked AFTER the formal ... Read more

Enjoyed a relaxing 16 day repositioning cruise from Vancouver, BC around Hawaii and back to Long Beach, Ca. Cruised with 3 other couples, all 60's - early 70's - the median age of passengers was 65, so we were happy to fit the profile. ... Read more

My husband and I had a great cruise meeting many wonderful people from all over the US, Canada and Europe. The Miracle is an older ship and has a few rough spots but looked clean and neat all over the ship. Our cabin (7202) boasts an ... Read more

Recently we cruised on the CARNIVAL MIRACLE. We don't cruise on Carnival any longer because I was a cruise snob!! I cruised on Celebrity mostly, and then on Royal on and off. I have been on 25 cruises and I will say this cruise was one of ... Read more

We chose to cruise Alaska after doing so 10 years ago and selecting the first ship into those waters for the 2014 season was chancy since we live in FL. But it was a wonderful decision. Not only was the weather sunny and warm, (yes, warm ... Read more

Oh My Goodness - this is the second gaudiest ship next to Carnival's Pride. It is in disrepair, worn curtains and fabrics everywhere. Rust and paint missing all over the ship. We are Platinum on Carnival and was shocked to see the ... Read more

Well, this was our 10th cruise with Carnival, and so we had certain realistic expectations. Sadly, these expectations were not met by a long shot. From the moment we boarded in Vancouver we noticed that something was definitely "off" about ... Read more

We have just returned from a repositioning cruise on the Miracle. We had great fun and met great people. The staff, especially dinner crew and room stewards were great. The dining room looked like disco meets bordello disaster! What was ... Read more

Boarding the Spirit in Vancouver was fast and efficient, then time to have something to eat and check out the ship. We had been told to go to our muster station at 3p.m. and there was another couple waiting there already with the same ... Read more

Boarding at Vancouver was a breeze. As the length of the cruise was twelve nights additional supplies had to be taken on board that delayed departure but the time was easily made up. Five full days at sea to start the cruise was going ... Read more

We booked a 7 day cruise to Alaska last minute. We had cabin class 7A which is a partially obstructed balcony. The obstruction was at the bottom of the balcony and was the top of a life boat. This did not bother us at all and we were ... Read more
