Booze and Beaches on the Miracle
"Carnival Miracle Cruise July 1, 2018 This was a fun cruise with sun-drenched days and drop-dead gorgeous seas! Embarkation: We arrived for our 11:30 ship boarding time at about 11:15 or so. By 12 noon we were..."Read More

I choose this cruise based on some prior reviews. I had sailed carnival previously and had a great time before, but I was very disappointed on this cruise. The worst part was my balcony cabin, and the food choices. The entertainment was also pretty bad, especially when you have a Motown review that features no black people. Found this to be very strange and in poor taste. The cast performing ...

Background: This was my 12th cruise on Carnival and my 2nd time on the Miracle. First time was in 2006 and I remember LOVING it back then. This time around was a little different. We originally scheduled our cruise to Cuba. When that got cancelled, we decided to still leave out of Tampa (where we live) and just pick a different itinerary. We got a $100 OBC for doing that. The Miracle came up ...

I was very apprehensive on booking this carnival miracle cruise because of the bad reviews I had read and also I had only cruised with NCL in the past. I had previously been on 2 cruises both on the big ships (breakaway & Epic). I found that I like the smaller ships much better. The miracle was less crowded. It has 3 pools so there was never a problem with chairs. The first morning I got up ...

This cruise line was chosen by a friend for an all-girls cruise. First, this is an older ship, in dire need of a remodel. The decor was fine, just worn. Our shower was moldy and the faucet at the sink was broken, yet functional. Only one American outlet in the entire cabin. So, bring a multi-port extension or power converter for European voltage. And, there are no power charging stations onboard. ...

My daughter and son-in-law did a Carnival Cruise for their honeymoon two years ago in October and loved it so much they wanted us to join them on a Carnival Cruise. Hurricane Darian caused us to have to leave a day early but we had already planned to arrive in Tampa that day and spend the night, so we just drove from NC as planned and boarded with absolutely no problems despite only having birth ...

Enjoyed this ship overall. One of the best casinos/dealers I’ve experienced although the drink service there was virtually non-existent. Pools need to be refurbished. Cabin was in excellent shape for an older ship. Tampa was one of the smoothest embarkations ever. Did not care for the entertainment on board. Never found a singer or band that knocked my socks off. If you want a ship for the tall ...

Seven six day cruise from Tampa - Grand Cayman - Roatan - Beleize - Cozumel - Tampa This rust bucket of a boat shout be taken to the Mariana Trench and scuttled along with the crew. I have never had a more miserable disgusting experience in my entire life. But then again if you want a truly horrible experience with nasty crew, slop for food (brought some home for the dogs - they declined to ...

This was my 7th cruise with Carnival. I usually cruise in the spring, but this time chose to go in August. We were able to snag Faster to the Fun, so embarkation was pretty easy. I went to the gym on the first morning and it was super packed and I never went back the rest of the week. Nelson, our steward was very friendly and made us comfortable. Our room, however, smelled like sewage on and off ...

Let me preface this review by disclosing that my wife and I are Platinum Level with Princess so that is our comparison. Although we were only Ruby level, the boarding process was quick and easy we arrived for our appointment right on time and were on board by 12:00 pm. We had a suite so we had early access to our cabin. The Lido deck was packed and so was the buffet so we grabbed a burger ate ...
