The boarding process was the worst seen to date. We were on this very same cruise last year and the boarding process went well. We remembered none of the total kayos of this trip. What happened? It’s obvious the scheduled ... Read more

The crew was very pleasant. We discovered the "undercover" secret menu that the dining room keeps hidden away. This way.....your food is not mass produced. Just have to order it a day in advance at the dining room check in ... 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

The best part of this cruise were the passengers. An older crowd, I found courteous, friendly, diverse, and very interesting. The ship itself was well decorated but clean enough. In the public areas I found dirty bathrooms. My cabin had ... Read more

Only a mini-review We returned to Florida last night, (May 25, 2016), after spending an extra day in Seattle. My wife and I both agree that the "Alaska" portion of the cruise was completely excellent. It was everything you ... Read more

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

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
