I had a great cruise on the Carnival Miracle! We arrived at Long Beach around Noon to board the ship. We had Faster to the Fun, so we were able to skip most of the line boarding the ship. Be warned, if you do not have priority boarding and ... Read more

We picked this cruise because my son wanted to try Carnival. He's 14. In the end even he preferred NCL. Our room had stained carpet and upholstery, the door to the frig was broken, many dings and broken elements to the suite. We had a ... Read more

This was our fourth cruise with carnival. We really enjoyed our royal caribbean cruises but don't think the extra $$$ers are worth it so we go carnival as they are much more affordable for our income. Always wanted to visit pearl harbor ... Read more

I have 17 cruises under my belt, three of them with Carnival. I haven't sailed Carnival since 1996 on the Jubilee. The 1996 cruise was a comparison to the Tropical that I did in 1987, the loss of quality was noticeable but not extreme. The ... Read more

1. Embarkation was easy, we were some of the first guests to arrive. 2. Once on board and able to enter cabin we found dust, our traveling friends found stained linens on their bed and a shower that had not been cleaned. It took several ... Read more

Just back from a 15 day cruise to Hawaii. What a wonderful trip, the service on the Miracle was spot on! From the bartenders to our wait staff in the main dining room, we were well taken care of. Our cabin steward was amazing! This was a ... Read more

This was our first experience with Carnival . My daughter asked for a cruise for her 30th birthday. My only stipulation was no airfare, so that meant Carnival out of S. California . To my surprise she found one the day after her birthday . ... Read more

After 50+ years of avoiding cruise ship travel (like the plague), I finally broke down and gave it a shot... sadly, over the 2016 Thanksgiving 7-day cruise aboard the mid-class Carnival Miracle. As a seasoned world traveler with many, many ... 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

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 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
