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 ...

First I would like to say that I really enjoy Carnival, and besides Celebrity it is my favorite cruise line. The Miracle staff overall were good, however there were a couple of things worth mentioning. I was somewhat taken back by the some ... Read more

If I would have known this was going to be the last cruise before they were taking this ship into dry dock I would have booked on another trip. The ship is old and beat up. The Serentity Deck was very cool but the pool was closed all trip ... Read more

We booked this cruise as a much needed family vacation, and these were ports we had never visited. We had aft balcony 7351, which was comfortable, had plenty of storage space, and was only crowded when all three of us were trying to get ... Read more

I couldn't wait to get off this ship. It's not that I mind cruising because I don't. I have booked over 75 days on better cruise lines but Carnival Miracle is disgusting. Our cabin, one of the largest on the ship was worn out and dirty. I ... Read more

We found the ship to be pretty worn out, (going into shipyard March). The vibration from the engine room was awful worse aft lower and better further away. We did zip line in Cabo which was great, fishing in Mazatlan which was fun except ... Read more

Carnival, where the fun never stops, I am still waiting for the fun to begin never mind never stopping. Things didn' t start well when we got to the port to see a massive queue which we would be stuck in for almost 2 hours, just to check ... Read more

Okay, so the title says it all - goodbye. In all seriousness, it doesn’t even come close. It’s just that we experienced so many wonderful people and events on our recent Carnival Miracle cruise to Mexico, there just ... Read more

I was VERY worried after booking our cruise. I read many scathing reviews of Carnival Miracle. Prior to departing my mother-in-law (a seasoned cruiser) told me "you will only have as much fun as you want to have." Truer words were never ... Read more

This was our first cruise and I treated my wife to a cruise to Hawaii for our 25th wedding anniversary. Upon our arrival and departure from Long Beach, we stayed in the Renaissance and took a short taxi ride over to the terminal. We ... Read more

When we planned our 'once-in-a-life- time' cruise to the Hawaiian Islands we had 60 hours of vacation time for five islands and a stop in Ensenada. When our cruise was over, 15 days later, we had Island time of 44 hours, including a 8 to ... Read more

After reading many reviews lambasting Carnival for their shoddy em/de barkation procedures and abysmal tender offload in Cabo, we were a little concerned about what to expect. Perhaps we set our expectations really low but we were ... Read more

Very much looking forward to this cruise but unfortunately I ended up in a cast and on a scooter. This caused problems with the excursions. High seas did not bother me but it would have been nice to see the sun on the trip west. The ... Read more

Our family is just freshly back from the Carnival Miracle 12/6 – 12/21 round-trip Hawaii, and let me say what a pleasure it was to once again be on the high seas. And I might also add, high they were. Being our 3rd Hawaii round-trip ... Read more

Just to warn you, this is going to be a long review, so settle in. We were three sisters, traveling together, all in our 50s and 60s....well, two in our fifties and one in her sixties, but I'm not telling which one! Two of us have cruised ... Read more

Just got back from the 12-6/12-21 sailing to Hawaii. A cruise that, IMO, shouldn't have happened. As a matter of fact, based on information I found out later, the ship should have never left Long Beach. Embarkation: A complete circus. It ... Read more

Granted I haven't been on a cruise in about 20 years, but most people are usually wishing their cruise would last a few more days - I couldn't wait to get off of the ship. If I wrote down everything that went wrong it would take a full 15 ... Read more
