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

Three of us found the food, ship's decor and nightly entertainment quite good. The biggest problem we encountered was the goofy time table that the ship stuck to in Cabo, Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta. For example, the cruise brochure shows ... Read more

This was an absolutely wonderful cruise for the family. We have been on many cruises and this was by far, the best for kids. Carnival does it right for child safety, allergy awareness, children's programs for all ages. One granddaughter ... Read more

Yes, we've been on the Miracle before, in October 2013 and were underwhelmed. However, family vacation dates dictated a return visit for cruise to Mexico in June 2015. Hopeful after the recent dry dock renovations, we boarded with an open ... Read more

I try to keep comments short - informative - and based on comparisons with previous cruises. Embarkation - quick and smooth. Please have your documents ready and out. This is the biggest delay and the people behind you in line when ... Read more

I will start off by saying that I don't love cruising. It doesn't matter what cruise line, ship or ports. However, this cruise line is bottom of the barrel...but it was all we could afford right now. Getting on the ship was fine...no ... Read more

BE READY!!! The hard sell is on. EVERYTHING costs. They appear to pay their employees with the tip money you MANDATORY have to pay. The staff was the best thing about this cruise. Food is below average and always cold except for pizza. ... Read more

We have cruised on Miracle before she went to dry dock, however, it was difficult to actually see what improvements had been added after she came out of dry dock. First of all let me say that the entire crew was terrific, and they made ... Read more
