We just got off the Carnival Miracle for a 7-night cruise to the Mexican Riviera: Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan, and Puerto Vallarta. We had a very enjoyable time. Service was good and the ship seemed to be in good shape to me. High points ... Read more

My family (mother, grandfather, and his girlfriend) took the week long cruise out of Long Beach on the Carnival Miracle. By the end of day 1, it was abundantly clear we would never take another trip on Carnival again. Being native ... Read more

We took our daughter, son-in-law and two little grandchildren. It was the kiddo's first cruise and they seemed to LOVE it. Camp Carnival was a hit with the 5 year old, but not as much with the 3 year old. They both enjoyed the live shows ... Read more

I know that everyone has their own needs and expectations when cruising. For us, for what we needed and expected, this was absolutely a 5-star vacation. Let me start by saying that yes, Miracle is showing her age in places, but I'm ... Read more

Travel agent recommended it. I am not likely to ever sail Carnival again unless a real steal. Carnival does not understand the definition of Serenity. It was as loud as the other pool areas where adults and children swam and played. ... Read more

We were pleasantly surprised by this cruise! Service was good, food was good and the Camp Carnival staff was super! Always a plus when you are traveling with just one child. We had previously cruised on Carnivals's three night trip ... Read more

I needed a one-week round-trip Los Angeles cruise on June 11th when my 2 LA-area mid-teen grandkids were available. To my surprise, Carnival was the ONLY cruise. While I frequently cruise, I had not been on Carnival in decades. I was ... Read more

We chose this cruise for our grandson’s graduation. There were 6 in our party. The good outweighed the bad so I'll just comment on a few items that we were not happy about. Sea days. In past cruises there were so many things to ... Read more

We have used Carnival Cruise lines several times before and loved them. This time it wasn't nearly as good and even to the point that we don't know if we will use them again. To begin with we usually get such wonderful service that we ... Read more

WIFI during your cruise: Let’s face it, wifi on the ship is SLOW and expensive, walk by the computers and you’ll see NO ONE. Like many, I rely on checking my email and Facebook frequently so… I started asking around. ... Read more

Embarkation was the typical dis-organized chaos. Lots of lines, but no Carnival staff knew what any line was for - just pick a line and stand in it. When I entered the Atrium I immediately noticed how small the ship was. I was sure I ... Read more

Do not travel or trust carnival cruises. They do not honor their "Best Price Garuantee." I found a cheaper price and followed the process but never heard back from them - ever! My room was filthy; chewing gum stuck under the ... Read more
