Well it is finally here the vacation I have been planning since March 2012. My DH and I are young 60's who love cruising. This cruise made us platinum so embarkation was a whole new process for us. I also started a roll call forum which had grown to over 5000 posts by sailing day. Some of the sea day activities included a Poker Cabin Crawl, 2 hour Cocktail Party and 2 Slot Pulls. I have never ...

This was my 3rd cruise. First with Carnival. My first 2 cruises were with Royal Caribbean. I am a 24yr old who traveled with my boyfriend (28), who had never been on a cruise. First off I would just like to say I was slightly nervous booking a Carnival cruise after being only on Royal Caribbean. I just always heard mixed reviews about Carnival but let me tell you, I LOVED CARNIVAL AND WOULD ...

We flew into New York City, only arriving at noon so we booked the Carnival shuttle to the ship as we were worried about our flight arriving late or getting stuck in traffic in a taxi and the shuttle seemed the safest bet. I really recommend arriving at the embarkation port a day ahead. This was stressful! It took about 40 minutes from LGA to the pier and since we were not early we had no ...

The ship was as we remembered her. Showing signs of age and not decorated to everyone's tastes but we like the layout and most of the decor. Anything we might consider tacky we considered "fun tacky". We had cabin 6236 which is the first balcony in the aft "bump out" so we had no neighbour upwind of our cabin. Chose the cabin to see if it would be quieter and hoped that at least upwind smokers ...

Carnival decided to reposition my favorite ship from NYC to the West Coast...so a year ago, when I learned of this sad news, I had to book this rare treat of a 10-day! A little about myself: I'm a solo cruiser with a cruise history of 25 past cruises on Celebrity, Norwegian, one on HAL, 13 with Carnival (6th time on the Miracle). I cruise 2 or 3 times a year, usually out of NY. Embarkation day ...

Having previously sailed on the 2nd route for the new Carnival Breeze we were very much impressed by the Value for Money Carnival offered and when looking for a bit of warmth in March we were willing to try Carnival again. The upshot is that Carnival is unmatched in Value for Money, we purchase the lowest cabin possible for an unbelievable price with the mindset that it was probably more expensive ...

We went on the Miracle from Jan. 25 through Feb. 2, 2013. It was relatively inexpensive and left from NY where we live. We just took the LIRR to Penn Station and got a cab to take us to the pier. We arrived at 11:15am so we were given a number, checked in and waited until after 1 pm when they finally called the numbers, one at a time, to embark. We had to go to the buffet because the main dining ...

Just returned from an absolutely terrific cruise! Had lots of trepidation about a Carnival cruise as we had heard and read nothing but very bad reviews. Well, here I am to dispel that misconception. We were on the Carnival Miracle. Are there differences between Carnival and Princess, Celebrity and Royal Carribean? As I see it, there are. They have to do with the level of service in the dining ...

As I read through previous reviews about the Miracle, I began to second guess myself regarding my upcoming cruise. I am happy to report that just as so many people have reported before "A cruise vacation is what you make of it". Embarkation was organized and I listened to those who suggested that you arrive early my daughter and I arrived by 10:30am. We didn't board until 12:30 and went ...

We were on the Miracle two years ago and loved the ship with the exception for the smoking in Frankie & Johnny. The food was great as in all our previous Carnival cruises. The entertainment was great. This time things has dropped quit a few notches. My review is based on my obeservation and may offend some people so be it. The smoking policy for the Frankie & Johnny is horrible. It is not ...
