While not necessarily "miraculous," there is much to praise about Carnival Miracle, the fourth of four "mid-sized" Spirit-class ships. First of all, the 88,500-ton, 2,124-passenger vessel, which launched in ...

This was our first cruise and my daughter and I had a fantastic time. We upgraded to an ocean suite and had faster to the fun. Both were well worth it. Both embarkation and disembarkation went smooth and well organized. Herry was our ... 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

Like many couples, my wife and I have busy schedules. Ours prevented us from taking a honeymoon immediately after our wedding (last November). We debated and debated our options- Dominican Republic All-Inclusive location, Hawaii, Costa ... 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

I read some reviews others wrote that said the ship was old, run down, dirty and had bad food. This doesn't sound like the ship we were on at all. We had a great time, loved the ship, service was great and food was amazing as always. We've ... Read more

I have been cruising out of Long Beach for years, and since I always have Priority Boarding, I've noticed normally they will start to let you in about 11:45-12:30, so for me no sense in getting there any earlier... Fast forward, my cabin ... Read more

The Miracle is smaller than the typical Carnival behemoths that ply Caribbean waters - Miracle has her own special flavor and is one of my favorite Carnival vessels so far. She's getting a little tatty around the edges but is still a ... Read more

So disappointed. Had been looking forward to this trip since the summer. We opted for the Premium Balcony room since it would just be my husband and I. This room was at a significant greater cost than the regular balcony. The room was ... Read more

I sailed on this same ship, the Miracle, just 11 months ago when we took a 15 day cruise to Hawaii. I was very happy with that cruise; this one, which when to Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta, not so much. First of all, I swear I will ... Read more

Let me start by saying this was our first time visiting the Hawaiian islands for both of us. We booked our trip almost a year in advance to assure we'd get a spot. This was the famous "Halloween" trip to Hawaii. We had previously ... Read more

Hawaii itself was great (as always), but the treatment of the passengers by the Carnival Miracle staff was UNACCEPTABLE. First of all, the long embarkation lines---outside in the heat---at the Long Beach (CA) terminal could easily have ... Read more

We cruised from Long Beach to the ports of Cabo and Puerto Vallarta on 10/10/2015. We had flown in a few days before to spend a few days at Disneyland, so we went straight from our hotel to Disneyland to the port. It was HOT! It was ... Read more

I picked this cruise mostly because of the departure port - I wanted to cruise with friends from southern California and it just plain made sense to leave from Long Beach. Two of us were first time cruisers and one had been on a previous ... Read more

Just back from the Carnival Miracle 7 night cruise from Long Beach to the Mexican Riviera. Good cruise for Carnival -- frankly, our expectations are probably a bit lower for Carnival. We paid the premium for the "faster to the ... Read more
