4.0 Editor's Rating
While not necessarily "miraculous," there is much to praise about Carnival Miracle, the fourth of four "mid-sized" Spirit-class ships. First of all, the 88,500-ton, 2,124-passenger vessel, which launched in ...

Just came back from the Miracle, 2 days to Cabo and 1 day in Puerto Vallarta, and it was amazing! We took this cruise two months ago in March, but the weather was so bad, all our shore excursions were cancelled. This time, the weather ... 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

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

This is our 2nd Carnival cruise (1st on Conquest in 2014). We live San Francisco and wanted a proper vacation for Spring break for me, DH, and 2 daughters, without the hassle of flying, so this cruise seemed a good choice. Drove down to ... 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

We really enjoyed the trip through the Mexican Riviera. For the price the Miracle is really a great option. As many have said in several other blogs or reviews, the parking at the terminal will cost you $133.00 but very convenient and ... Read more

Our first ever cruise on Carnival was a Mediterrean cruise with John Heald as our cruise director. That set the bar extremely high and it's never been met since. We've had nice cruises on Carnival since but these last two are causing me ... Read more

I will start off by saying that I am not a Carnival Cruise Line fan. Admittedly I have not cruised with Carnival on any Carnival ship for over 20 years. The ships we've been on are the Holiday and Jubilee, both of which are long gone. ... Read more

We had not sailed on Carnival for about 6 years, and had left from the port in San Diego. Now they embark all their west coast departures (except Alaska) from Long Beach. The embarkation procedure was really terrible. The registration ... Read more

The Miracle is reminiscent of an aging dowager sporting an excess of poorly applied makeup who defiantly refuses to update either her appearance or the cuisine she serves to guests. Before booking this cruise, my husband and I re-set ... Read more
