Fun on and off the Carnival Miracle

We chose this cruise for two reasons first because it was departing San Diego (our hometown) and second because it was going to Cabo. We choose a 1:00 pm check in and it was so easy. We did not have to wait in any ...

Loved the Quirkiness and Size of the Miracle

We were visiting our son in San Diego and decided that instead of renting a place, we would all go on a Mexican Riviera cruise. The embarkation and debarkation were smooth and fast, even with no FTTF available. The ...

Decent cruise; terrible post-cruise service

The cruise itself was decent. Lots of pros and cons, some of which are listed below. The reason for the 2-stars is the poor post-cruise experience. I pre-purchased the "premium" 6-day internet package for $89 ...
