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

Spent the night before the cruise aboard the Queen Mary which was right by the carnival terminal. On cruise day we rolled our luggage over to the area of embarkation. An extremely incompetent Carnival employee tried to ... 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've cruised 6 times before. 4 times with Carnival, once with Norwegian and once with Princess. Although I've consulted this site many times, this is the first time I've felt compelled to write a review. For the life of me I cannot ... 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

This was my first trip to Hawaii and it certainly lived up to expectations. Hawaii is a most incredible place to visit and I would certainly recommend going! However, I would most definitely not recommend going with Carnival! I'm so ... Read more

This was my first trip to Hawaii, but my 15th cruise over all--certainly not my longest, but I live for longer cruises just like this with lots of sea days, amazing ports, and the experience one can only get during time on a ship. I ... Read more

I travelled with our 15 year old son on this Christmas cruise and we had a wonderful time. Particularly enjoyable for my son was Club O2, the program catering to 15-17 year olds. I thought he might be reluctant to participate, but ... Read more

This was our second time on the Miracle. We arrived at the ship and were met by a porter as we stepped out of the cab. We had a Faster To The Fun pass so our boarding was expedited. We check in and were on the ship in short order. Our ... Read more

This was our first cruise on Carnival. We were skeptical because of all the negative comments we heard. Overall, it was a good cruise. We took advantage of the FlyAweigh program because the airfare was half of what we could have gotten on ... Read more
