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

We booked this cruise through a voucher for a free cruise for 2 given to my husband from the El Dorado Casino in Shreveport, Louisiana. I selected the Miracle because we have never done that itinerary and we wanted to stay in Los Angeles ... 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

Travel group: husband, wife, and 14 year old son. We chose this cruise not on our desire, but because we had a 25% discount. We received the discount on a previous cruise. The itinerary was changed right before sailing and we were offered ... Read more

Embarkation: We were traveling with my father, who is temporarily in a wheelchair. Embarkation was very easy. They took us to a special check in desk for disabled people. We waited maybe 10 minutes, then headed up and were on board. ... Read more

I guess I was spoiled by the supreme food and service of a Celebrity Panama Canal cruise. This was my 3rd cruise. They only get an average 3 star rating from me. Food was not that great in dining room or in the buffet. In the dining room ... Read more

After reading all the negative reviews, we were surprised. Yes, the Miracle is an older ship and need a facelift, but overall it was nice and we had a good time. We arrived the day before our cruise and was at the pier by 11 am and ... Read more
