Long Beach embarkation and debarkation is a shambles. I'm told this is not Carnivals fault. They blame Customs and Coast guard for the procedures at this port and that it is a training port for these services which is why lines get help up ... Read more

This my eighth cruise overall and after a mediocre cruise to Alaska in September, my wife and I had decided to not cruise for a while and do other types of vacations. But her sister and some other friends booked this cruise, and since it ... Read more

This was my 6th cruise - 5th cruise with Carnival! This was my Husband's 1st cruise ever! We both had a phenomenal honeymoon! Our cabin was on the 1st floor Mid Ship and we didn't hear too much from below. We slept very well, ... Read more

We went to Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlán, and Puerto Vallarta. Never went to those places before and I'm glad I did. It was a great experience. The ship was very nice, although as always there is room for improvement! Embarkation ... Read more

My Trip on Caravan Miracle Ship. !st Day, Was great entrance, having a cane for support meant I was somewhat handicapped, so I was whisked in front of the line. So great first impression. However, that was soon ended with an emergency ... Read more

Although my personal circumstances put a huge damper on my cruise experience onboard the Carnival Miracle, I will say that there were no shortage of things to do. The staff was generally pleasant, the activities were well planned, and ... Read more

The Miracle ship is a lovely ship esthetically, but there appear to be a lot of changes on board. The required safety muster drill at the beginning of the cruise was unlike any other I 'd experienced. We were physically checked off a ... Read more

This was our second "cousins cruise" on Carnival. This time there were 6 of us ladies, ages 49-65 with two cruise newbies. Since the Miracle was just returning from Hawaii, this was a 6 day cruise on the Mexican Riviera. After ... 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

This was my second Carnival cruise. I had, overall, a good time and I will start with the good from this cruise. The staff was incredibly friendly and seemed to be everywhere. Jaime, the Cruise Director was fantastic. I am retired USAF, ... 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

We haven't gone on Carnival for 16 years as we were trying to get Elite on Princess Cruises. We generally get a mini-suite on Princess but decided to save a few bucks and try a balcony room. We paid for Faster to Fun Pass ($59.00) and it ... Read more

Just came back from the Mexican Riviera cruise on the Carnival Miracle. This was my first time on a Spirit class ship and I'll have to say it's now my favorite. This was a New Year's cruise leaving on December 31st. Embarkation was ... Read more

We have gone from balcony to junior suite to ocean suite. This was probably the quietest cabin we've had- except for the young elephants running down the halls, and a kid next door who loved to sing loudly on the balcony. Our steward Asih ... Read more

The ship is older than others i've traveled on, but it was clean. The cabin stewards are friendly and efficient. The entertainment was mixed- good shows;however the comedians weren't great. The band was excellent, but the solo performers ... Read more

This was the absolute worst vacation of my life. I have taken several cruises in the past and this was by far the worst ever. Room was filthy - had to call housekeeping 3 times to get it clean and point to the filth and ask for it to be ... Read more

I had a great cruise on the Carnival Miracle! We arrived at Long Beach around Noon to board the ship. We had Faster to the Fun, so we were able to skip most of the line boarding the ship. Be warned, if you do not have priority boarding and ... Read more

We picked this cruise because my son wanted to try Carnival. He's 14. In the end even he preferred NCL. Our room had stained carpet and upholstery, the door to the frig was broken, many dings and broken elements to the suite. We had a ... 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
