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

We took our daughter, son-in-law and two little grandchildren. It was the kiddo's first cruise and they seemed to LOVE it. Camp Carnival was a hit with the 5 year old, but not as much with the 3 year old. They both enjoyed the live shows ... Read more

I know that everyone has their own needs and expectations when cruising. For us, for what we needed and expected, this was absolutely a 5-star vacation. Let me start by saying that yes, Miracle is showing her age in places, but I'm ... Read more

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 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
