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 ... Read More
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 ... Read More
Chose this cruise to "get away and have a good time." Sadly with cruises of longer length there is a much older crowd. The ships nightlife was not as energized as my previous cruises. Carnival did do a good job of trying to ... Read More

The staff was incredibly friendly and seemed to be everywhere. Jaime, the Cruise Director was fantastic. I am retired USAF, ... Read More
We picked this 15 day from Long Beach, California to Hawaii so we didn't have to fly to Honolulu. Third time on the Miracle and it's better than ever. So many great places to relax and enjoy sea days. Service was the best of our 15 ... Read More
We wanted a cruise with maximum sea days and this cruise fit the bill. The Miracle is great, lots of activities, bars and sitting areas. The lido and sun decks have plenty of seating and loungers. Mini golf was just tricky enough to be ... Read More
Hawaii was the final state for us to visit. We signed up for this cruise on a previous Carnival cruise and got $250 on board credit, plus $250 for being a stockholder! The 4 sea days going to Hawaii did not seem as long as the 4 sea days ... Read More
