I was pleasantly surprised at the good value we got when we booked this family cruise on the Carnival Miracle. We traveled the week of April 29-May 6 and I knew ahead of time that this cruise would not compare to my first choice, Royal ... Read more

Though I am a Princess girl, I cruised with a friend who is a Carnival fan. She won. The dining room food was excellent, as were the waiters, but the buffet was stingy. The carver meat was always stringy, tough and overcooked. The choices ... Read more

We did not have a say in selecting this cruise. Our daughterinlaw set it up as a family group cruise. We were generally "satisfied" but I'll elaborate. Our last two cruises were on Norwegian and Royal Caribbean. Carnival ... Read more

Chose this cruise for the dates, and I'll be more intentional to avoid spring break weeks in the future. Frequent Carnival customers and it is increasingly difficult to move down to the older boats after being on newer ones. Primarily ... Read more

I spent my 50th Birthday on board Carnival Miracle and had a beautiful cruise. My room Steward was a complete Gentleman, zipping gowns, tying bows, and keeping my stateroom tidy and pleasant. My Late Dining Assigned Seating was ... Read more

I went with my family of 4 and 9 other friends. It was my first Carnival cruise and my wife's second. I hadn't heard great things about Carnival. I heard it called the Motel 6 of cruising. My expectations weren't high for the cruise. ... Read more

When thinking about this cruise, my mom and I were a little bit apprehensive about going on Carnival during Spring Break. But, we easily justified it using these two reasons. 1. We survived Carnival Breeze over Christmas with 1,500 ... Read more

This was supposed to be a fun Spring Break trip for my family but it was the worst vacation we have ever taken! Both myself and my husband got food poisoning from food we ate on the ship! We returned home dehydrated and very sick! This ... Read more

We've cruised Carnival and other lines before so this wasn't our first rodeo but it was the first time cruising with our 11 month old. Unfortunately the experience of mediocre at best making me not want to cruise Carnival anymore. Felt ... Read more

I have to say Carnival Miracle was a good experience, however, there were so many things that my husband and I did not expect, we are not sure if we would book a cruise again. The day of travel leaving from Long Beach California my ... Read more

Just wanted a short getaway without having to fly. Long Beach is about 40 minutes from us by car and very convenient. Parking's not cheap at $19 a day, however, and we ended up on the roof of the parking structure. Check in was quick ... Read more

Arrived at LAX about 3 hours before embarkation. Driver was at Baggage Claim and trip to the Port was much quicker than I had planned, about 30 minutes, not the hour I had planned flights around. Faster to The Fun was a great purchase, our ... Read more

Overall, the cruise was good. I was not impressed with the food in the Baccus dining room.Our servers were awesome though. The cabin was fine and our steward was good. All of the staff was very friendly. Camp Ocean was fantastic for my ... Read more

This was my first Carnival cruise, travelling with a hosted singles group of 95, all ages. I enjoyed the cruise, but probably won't repeat on Carnival unless the itinerary is irresistible... it just didn't wow me. Embarkation at Long ... Read more

We love Mexico and are frequent travelers to the Cancun & Mexican Riviera area. Since we had never been to Cabo or Mazatlán (& we love Puerto Vallarta), we took this cruise with friends. This was our 3rd Carnival cruise ... Read more

We don't usually cruise Carnival maybe (8 times) but it suited us this time. I'm a long time cruiser with over 50 cruise. Don't stick to any one cruise line as I don't like playing the status designations. If they want to give me ... Read more

Wife booked this cruise and we had 8 total in our group and 3 cabins. Upon casual glance about the ship it seemed oddly laid out and to me there seemed to be a lot of wasted space. By that, I mean areas that were rarely used by anyone ... Read more

We've been on two other Carnival cruises on different ships each time. This by far was our worst experience cruising. It was our honeymoon cruise so we booked a balcony room on the 7th floor so we could enjoy the views from the balcony. ... Read more

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
