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 ...

Sailed November 2015
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

We had never done a west coast cruise so we decided to try one. We did a 7 day, 2 ports of call cruise and absolutely loved it. This ship is a very beautiful ship with a Phantom of the Opera theme. Although we we will never return to Port ... Read more

Been on a dozen or so Carnival Cruises. The boat and everything about the experience is slightly less then the bigger boats that go in the Caribbean. One Dining hall as opposed to Two, less food bars/options as compared to the larger ... Read more

Usually I am so excited to go on a cruise I already know the ship inside and out, when the buffets are open, whats on the ship to do etc. But my mother-in-law passed away exactly 6 weeks before the cruise from a long battle with cancer ... 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

I have been on RCL at least 5 times, NCL and Princess as well so to say that I wasn't expecting much from Carnival was an understatement. BOY WAS I PLEASANTLY SURPRISED!! The Miracle was a great size, the food never disappointed, ... 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

first off let me tell you the hotel staff is the best. The ship is clean for the most part, but dining is the worst only one dining room and if you have any time dining you have to a 40 min's wait with a pager to be seated and another 40 ... 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
