Do not travel or trust carnival cruises. They do not honor their "Best Price Garuantee." I found a cheaper price and followed the process but never heard back from them - ever! My room was filthy; chewing gum stuck under the ... Read more

Travel group: husband, wife, and 14 year old son. We chose this cruise not on our desire, but because we had a 25% discount. We received the discount on a previous cruise. The itinerary was changed right before sailing and we were offered ... Read more

Embarkation: We were traveling with my father, who is temporarily in a wheelchair. Embarkation was very easy. They took us to a special check in desk for disabled people. We waited maybe 10 minutes, then headed up and were on board. ... Read more

This is our 2nd Carnival cruise (1st on Conquest in 2014). We live San Francisco and wanted a proper vacation for Spring break for me, DH, and 2 daughters, without the hassle of flying, so this cruise seemed a good choice. Drove down to ... Read more

I guess I was spoiled by the supreme food and service of a Celebrity Panama Canal cruise. This was my 3rd cruise. They only get an average 3 star rating from me. Food was not that great in dining room or in the buffet. In the dining room ... Read more

After reading all the negative reviews, we were surprised. Yes, the Miracle is an older ship and need a facelift, but overall it was nice and we had a good time. We arrived the day before our cruise and was at the pier by 11 am and ... Read more

We really enjoyed the trip through the Mexican Riviera. For the price the Miracle is really a great option. As many have said in several other blogs or reviews, the parking at the terminal will cost you $133.00 but very convenient and ... Read more

Spent the night before the cruise aboard the Queen Mary which was right by the carnival terminal. On cruise day we rolled our luggage over to the area of embarkation. An extremely incompetent Carnival employee tried to ... Read more

Our first ever cruise on Carnival was a Mediterrean cruise with John Heald as our cruise director. That set the bar extremely high and it's never been met since. We've had nice cruises on Carnival since but these last two are causing me ... Read more

I will start off by saying that I am not a Carnival Cruise Line fan. Admittedly I have not cruised with Carnival on any Carnival ship for over 20 years. The ships we've been on are the Holiday and Jubilee, both of which are long gone. ... Read more

We had not sailed on Carnival for about 6 years, and had left from the port in San Diego. Now they embark all their west coast departures (except Alaska) from Long Beach. The embarkation procedure was really terrible. The registration ... Read more

The Miracle is reminiscent of an aging dowager sporting an excess of poorly applied makeup who defiantly refuses to update either her appearance or the cuisine she serves to guests. Before booking this cruise, my husband and I re-set ... 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
