Overall Member Rating
Carnival Miracle Cabin 1172
The entertainment onboard was good. The adult comedy was a little too "R" rated for our liking. Give me Bill Cosby any day. The food was just average in the main dining room. We did the anytime dining and never had to wait more than 5-10 minutes. The choices on the Lido deck were very good, from Chinese food to deli sandwiches and the usual buffet items. They had 24 hour pizza & ice cream. The Serenity deck for adults was nice especially the day we cruised Tracy Arm Fjord it was nice and comfortable and there were no kids.
When we got back in Seattle we carried our on luggage off the ship and we were in a cab at 7:35 AM on our way to the airport, its about a $50. ride with tip.
All in all it was a very nice cruise. Carnival did a great job for a great price. Less
Cabin review: 6A1172 Ocean View
Cabin was roomy enough for 3 of us to be comfortable. Window provided us with a good view. Plenty of closet space. Bathroom & shower were good size. A good cabin for the money. Cabin steward was very good.Read All Ocean View (6A) Reviews >>
Port and Shore Excursions
The bike ride was 9 miles on a flat road. Only one hill to go up, not too bad. We rode out to see Mendenhall Glacier. It was a nice ride and good views. Then back to town for the beer. It is in an old airplane hanger. They let you sample a few different Alaskan Beers.
The day in Ketchikan was warm 75 degrees. We took a bus ride to the shop to get outfitted in our 7mm wetsuit with boots, gloves and a hood. We could not wait to get in the 50 degree water to cool off. We saw lots of different sea life, stars, cucumbers, kelp and lots of interesting jellies. When we stopped to rest you look up in the sky to see Bald Eagles. It was a great trip and a fun day. The staff at the Snorkel Shop was very helpful.
A bus ride through Skagway then to base camp. A ride up 800' in a Unimog and the dogs were waiting for us to go for a ride. Plenty of time for pictures and to pat the dogs. Back down to base camp for a demonstration and the highlight of the tour, the puppies
A boat ride to Haines and Davidson Glacier. Whales & Eagles along the way. A stop for a picnic lunch then a bus ride to the canoes. After a short paddle the motor went in the water for the rest of the ride to the Glacier. The we walked out to see the Glacier. A really nice day
