We picked this 15 day from Long Beach, California to Hawaii so we didn't have to fly to Honolulu. Third time on the Miracle and it's better than ever. So many great places to relax and enjoy sea days. Service was the best of our 15 ... Read more

Hawaii was the final state for us to visit. We signed up for this cruise on a previous Carnival cruise and got $250 on board credit, plus $250 for being a stockholder! The 4 sea days going to Hawaii did not seem as long as the 4 sea days ... Read more

We haven't gone on Carnival for 16 years as we were trying to get Elite on Princess Cruises. We generally get a mini-suite on Princess but decided to save a few bucks and try a balcony room. We paid for Faster to Fun Pass ($59.00) and it ... Read more

We have gone from balcony to junior suite to ocean suite. This was probably the quietest cabin we've had- except for the young elephants running down the halls, and a kid next door who loved to sing loudly on the balcony. Our steward Asih ... Read more

This was the absolute worst vacation of my life. I have taken several cruises in the past and this was by far the worst ever. Room was filthy - had to call housekeeping 3 times to get it clean and point to the filth and ask for it to be ... Read more

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

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

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
