What a GREAT west coast cruise

Review for Carnival Panorama to Mexican Riviera

We were offered a GREAT deal to board this ship to the Mexican Rivera. 140.00 per person, 7 days. Never having been to the west coast my wife and I jumped at the deal. Needless to say, it was one of our BEST cruises. The three ports, (Puerta Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cabo) were super. We loved them all and found the people to be SO friendly and helpful. We would do this trip again and have ...

Just got off the Panorama yesterday. Here are my quick thoughts: Had a Havana Aft Extended Balcony on Deck 9. Fantastic view, loved the location right below the Lido and pizza station. It also shielded us from some of the soot that lower aft balconies reported. You do hear the occasional chair being moved on the deck above, but it wasn’t too bad. We tried all of the specialty restaurants ...

Stayed in a spa cabin, which was always kept clean. Complained about the lock not working, though, and it was never fixed. Disappointed there wasn't nightly turndown service. Spa services were excellent, and entire staff was very experienced and competent. Overall, the ship was lovely. Other than the burgers and burritos, the food quality was poor. There was a large selection in the buffet, ...

The Radiance is completely refurbished, and they did an excellent job. The ship is a smaller ship, yet the food choices and restaurants are top rate. I tried all the free choices and had dinner at the main dining each night. My daughters and I shared a cabin, and my younger daughter said the couch was.made into a comfortable bed. The casino is surprisingly.large for the size of the ship, ...

Embarkation: From Long Beach. A NIGHTMARE. A two hour wait outside, in line to even check in. We were told this was because they needed to check each person's COVID paperwork and ask some questions. The normal streamline process was nowhere to be found. Lots of exhausted crazy people boarding that boat! Vista Dining: Of course, the waiters are the best part. Friendly and funny. We had ...

Spring Break on the Miracle

For Spring Break, we didn’t want to commit our entire 10-day break to a vacation, so we opted for the 6-day, double dose of Cabo cruise on the Miracle from Long Beach. What a fabulous decision! One of my kids decided to join my husband and I, so we had three people in an extended balcony (8223). Here are my thoughts and experiences: Transportation: We had flights for the day of the cruise ...

Due to Covid, this was our 4th attempt to take this cruise over the last 2 years. Boarding once past the Covid vaccination/test check went smoothly. Our Spa Balcony cabin was ready, clean and very nice. "Pen" our cabin stewardess was excellent! She was very attentive and always smiling, greeting us by name. The food was up to standards. The buffet was good with plenty of options, main dining room ...

I’m 60 years old, traveling with my 80-year-old mother. First cruise on Carnival but 5 past cruises on other lines. Arrival: Arrived at LAX on a flight too late to schedule Carnival shuttle transportation to the pier. Total chaos at the airport with construction everywhere. Uber at curbside listed at $120. Took the shuttle to the other uber/taxi location and got an uber quickly for $35. ...

Seem the only option out of Long Beach, and we had sailed Carnival many other times. The arrival and departure were fine. We ate in the steakhouse the first night and then tried the main dining room the next. The service was prolonged. We ordered two glasses of champagne and got what I guess was Spumante. We explained we had had Chandon elsewhere on the ship, and this was too sweet to be a Brut or ...

We tried this company as second cruise to Mexico from LA! Embarkation as bed as previously from same port! Same horrible experiences all the way to our bedroom! Room itself was adequate for our needs. Buffet food very blunt, tasteless and noflavours. Restaurant worst than the Miracle. Same menu and after speaking to Manager in charge, found that he as well couldn’t careless, just like ...
