Thought it would be nice to relax & cruise to Hawaii (this was a 15 day cruise) We flew into LAX the day before the cruise but returned in the morning to take the transportation bus to Long Beach. It was difficult finding the ... Read more

We had been to Hawaii before and know how beautiful it is, and were looking forward to sharing it's beauty with our friends. There was a group of 14 of us. The ship was old and in fair condition. The rooms were average and the beds ... 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

As a quick bit of information I've cruise with Carnival 2 times before (including on the Miracle in 2005) and also with NCL, Princess, HAL, RCI and MSC. This cruise was part of a wider trip to the west coast of the states and was the ... Read more

Very disappointed in this cruise and ship. Not many activities to do onboard unless you like trivia a lot, quality of food not good - felt like eating same thing over and over. Staff not helpful and sometimes rude. Service very ... 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

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

We chose this cruise because of proximity to our home (Utah) and teen programs...ship was nice, although a little on the cold side inside. ( bring a light jacket) Food was good with Lots of variety, and dining options outside of main ... 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

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

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
