We were on this cruise for Thanksgiving, figuring we'd try something different from our normal tradition. It was great. We learned so much! We left Long Beach with smooth sailing, enjoyed exploring the vessel, had our first dining ... Read more

We were very excited for this cruise....new ports, ship and great weather. However, we only found one staff member that was not only friendly, but attentive. And we made a point to find this waiter each day. Our housekeeper it appeared ... Read more

We chose this cruise when I received a great past guest offer. This time we did a balcony which was the best decision ever, enjoyed being out on it all the time we were in our room. We chose deck 7 in middle which was very comfortable ... Read more

It started on the first evening at the formal dining hall. I ordered the turf and surf at a $20 add on price. The Steak was the size of a hard boiled egg and the lobster 1/2 tail tasted like it was cooked for the 5:15 seating and was ... Read more

My wife and I have cruised on Norwegian twice and this was our first time on Carnival. It was like taking a step down from what we had expected. I can only conclude that all the good reviews we read are from people who did't expect much. ... Read more

My eighth Carnival cruise was my first on Miracle, after having previously sailed on Splendor, Freedom and Inspiration. Size, decor and destination of the various Carnival ships notwithstanding, most of the cruises themselves are fairly ... Read more

I'm going to give you a real review. It may be highly candid and critical, but it's real and not an over-embellished, best-vacation-of-my-life review because in all honesty, this was one of the worst trips I have ever been on. Carnival ... Read more

We chose this cruise to celebrate our anniversary and my 65th birthday with the destination that she wanted to see since the late 1960's. We both wanted the beautiful scenery of the ports in Hawaii and since we are experienced cruisers we ... Read more

We loved the trip. The staff could not have been more friendly and welcoming. They remembered our names. Even in the ship stores! I was traveling with my dad and my 3 1/2 year old son. We had a balcony room. We didn't have any issues ... Read more

The ship is fairly large, there is so much to explore (on your own). The cabins aren't very spacious but are decent. The colors are very outdated. The beds are comfortable. The are many dining options, changing every day, the food is very ... Read more

This cruise followed a week on the west cost of the USA and what a fantastic time my wife and I had. You can read all the negative stuff from people who have recently been on this cruise, probably the snobs who go on holiday for 13 months ... Read more

We came from Australia with a few other families. When I booked I found it difficult to find out about what was on the boat, ie: restaurants, entertainment, what the rooms looked like, which was worrying . Before the cruise stared we ... Read more

First up, the safety briefing on deck. We were herded like cattle onto the sunny side of the deck in 100 degree heat where we waited for 30 minutes to have a recorded announcement played which we could not hear hear due to the complaining ... Read more

This was our4th cruise, 2nd cruise with Carnival, and was a family reunion of sorts. There were 25 in our party. Let me start by saying the Carnival Miracle is a worn out and tired ship. In my opinion it needs to be retired or completely ... Read more

whilst we had a really great time, this ship shows it's age although it is spotlessly clean and well maintained and the demographic is young and fun. We loved the pool deck, with lots of high energy entertainment. The thing I missed ... Read more

Miracle is a pretty standard ship for mid-sized ones, but the Bacchus dining room is spectacular - laden with purple globes to represent the wine god. Room are standard, straightforward. Service overall was fairly medium except from ... Read more

Scheduling was a big factor. This was a last minute trip with a friend and this trip was one of few that was available. We missed our first two port of calls because of a hurricane. Not Carnival's fault but disappointing for us ... Read more
