What a Pleasant Surprise!
"We sprung for the upgrade thinking, if we got stuck on the ship for a quarantine period, we would at least have a nice room to be cooped up in.Even though we already had a cruise booked over Christmas, we decided, that we should still go......"Read More

7 Day ALASKA cruise

Review for Carnival Miracle to Alaska

This was a 7 day trip from Seattle to Alaska with stops at Tracy Arm Fjord, Ketchikan, Juneau & Skagway. We sailed on September 7, 2021 - September 14, 2021. Loved the ship! We normally like sailing on the Dream Class ships. But the Miracle was wonderful! I loved the layout as it had the promenade basically on both decks 2 & 3. Overall the ship felt "cozy". Definitely not small. The ...

My wife and I are regular cruisers... other thst 2020, we go on at least 1, if not two cruises per year. We also prefer 10 to 16 day cruises. So when my wife's friend asked us to join her on her first cruise to Alaska, we said yes. Then she said it was on Carnival. We did some research and decided we would give them another try. We have had some TERRIBLE experiences on Carnival, and ...

Chose this cruise because we didn't have to fly to get on ship to Alaska. The reason for the 3star review was the food. I mean broccoli every night and we like broccoli. No choices on menu. The chef made mud pie everyone at table ordered it was CAKE??????? I could go on but why. The excursions offer for Alaska were great. Good variety Choices... The entertainment was ok but I feel Carnival ...

Journey Cruise? The Good, The Bad and the Ugly

LONG review, but if you want the 'bad' and 'ugly' skip to the bottom. Well, my wife and I FINALLY managed to take a cruise to Alaska! And the itinerary was perfect for us - 2 weeks and a round trip from Long Beach, CA. made it easy on us (we live just north of LA). After 3 days at sea, we were glad to hit some really great ports. Our favorite was Icy Strait Point - WOW! What a GREAT ...

The embarkation was actually painless...quick and easy. Of course it was head for the lido until our room was ready. Still can not understand why Carnival Corp. can not have a buffet set up in the dining room as well, on embarkation day. Would make sense and get the people in and out! Our room was ready on time and luggage arrived in a timely manner. Carnival still does not understand that ...

This was our second cruise, first was a Princess cruise. We thought, wow Alaska, this will be great. It was our 30th anniversary too. What a disappointment . First let me say this, staff was awesome, always attentive and polite so I would give them an A+. Now as for the food, we looked forward to getting OFF the ship to eat, despite the high prices in the local places the food was awesome. This ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

Thanks for taking time to read my review. I am a 35 year old woman and I took my mother (age 66) on her first Alaskan cruise! We flew into Seattle the day before the cruise and stayed at the Holiday Inn Express - Seattle City Center. We really enjoyed this hotel, it was very clean and our room was lovely. It is walking distance to Seattle Centre, so we took advantage of the gorgeous day and ...

I must say that I have been to Alaska on 4 other cruises 3 with Carnival and 1 with a sister ship and I have always loved the cruise. Alaska is such a magical place and must be seen in all it's glory. We have been 5 times at different times each time and I have to say that the earlier in the season the better for me. Although we had almost perfect weather on this past cruise something was still ...

Okay. So I get it. It's a cruise. Carnival operates on slim margins so it needs to constantly barade you with requests to purchase drinks or photos. The whole trip felt like a prolonged time-share presentation. [Cons] - Terrible [Non-existent] entertainment. Bingo? D-List comedians? Karaoke singers? Ugh. - Waaayyyy overpriced drinks. - A single bandaid for a cut is $3.50. INSANE. - The casino ...
