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

I've been on over a dozen cruises; a few with Carnival. NEVER would I have thought to research to look for article written in April about problems with the ship. Prior to this cruise I said Norweigen was the "Yugo" of cruise lines; ... 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

Carnival was not "up front" with it's guests for this cruise. A lot of us didn't realize until it was too late, that the Miracle has been having propulsion problems since early this year, and decided to continue operation of the vessel, ... 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

We won't sail with Carnival again - because of some sort of engine problem the ship had a constant vibration. The ship is planned for repairs soon but that won't help travelers now. This may be the reason the ship was always behind ... Read more

We're local to Long Beach, so this was our latest in many Mexico cruises we've been on. Overall it was great, but just a few little annoyances and issues that need to be addressed on this ship and in port. Embarkation was a mess, just ... Read more
