Booked this cruise well in advance and couldn't wait to go. Getting on the ship wasn't too bad but the Long Beach port has much to be desired. Other ports like Orlando were much easier to deal with and you weren't left standing outside waiting to get on. The ship itself was decorated nicely and felt comfortable but you could tell it was getting outdated. Lot of squeaks and rattles with ...

My husband and I are regular cruisers. The majority of our cruises have been with Carnival with no really bad experiences until now. I have to say that it will probably be awhile before we take another. We chose this one because we liked the idea of being on a long cruise. We have priority boarding as we are Platinum. The port at Long Beach leaves a lot to be desired. You are left to stand ...

Chose to go on this cruise to share witt a very close friend, that we have enjoyed traveling with over several continents. The departing harbor was ideal,, as we both live in Los Angeles and avoided the hassle of airports.. Embarkation and disembarkation for us went smoothly . Have traveled on many cruise lines before I found that the activities for 15 days were linited. They should have had a ...

I have 17 cruises under my belt, three of them with Carnival. I haven't sailed Carnival since 1996 on the Jubilee. The 1996 cruise was a comparison to the Tropical that I did in 1987, the loss of quality was noticeable but not extreme. The recent cruise with Carnival again was a comparison, and unfortunately I should have listen to my thoughts of concern but took another chance with Miracle. I ...

1. Embarkation was easy, we were some of the first guests to arrive. 2. Once on board and able to enter cabin we found dust, our traveling friends found stained linens on their bed and a shower that had not been cleaned. It took several calls to have them correct the problems. Our cabin remained dusty the entire cruise, where could dust be collected at sea? I suspect either dirty vacuum ...

Service was GREAT! Pre-paid the gratuity thinking I didn't have to worry about tipping. Well that is totally wrong! The employees don't receive it! You still need to tip for all your services. Well I should say you don't have to, but the employees are so good to you, you feel you need to. My room/bathroom was disgusting! They only run in and to change the sheets and towels! They do not do any ...

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 were very uncomfortable. Our backs were killing us the first night. The bedding, however, was comfortable. Activities - what activities?? If you don't ...

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 disappointed as I have sailed with Carnival twice before, once on this very ship, the Miracle and once on the Sunshine, and they were very good. However, I feel ...

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 slow (slow getting drinks, slow clearing tables, etc.). Shore excursions expensive and not worth the money. Too many things on ship "cost extra". ...

Our second time sailing on the Miracle.....do NOT book cabin 8202.The air conditioning was roaring all the time. It was a lot louder at night. Maintenance tried to fix it.....we had them in the cabin at 2am one morning.The guy did try his best and said he would have to talk to his chief.They did turn down something but it was still loud. This cabin needs a good cleaning,maybe when she comes back ...
