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 ...

We just missed hurricane Sandy by one week and got caught up in hurricane Raphael's high winds and rain for 2 days. 20 foot waves and a lot of people were sick. I will not book ever again during peak hurricane season. We all saw what happened the week after to Staten Island and Manhattan. That was a close call for us! We spend too much money to take such a chance again. The ship was not ...

Firstxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx First of all a big "thank you" to the folks at Carnival for getting our cruise out of New York with Hurricane Sandy hot-on-our-heels. A terrific waitstaff, clean rooms, and adequate food (for the money) were all appreciated, the folks on this cruise worked very hard indeed to make us all as comfortable as possible. WARNING: If you're looking to kill a week or so on ...

This was our first experience with Carnival and it was a study in contrasts. There were so many good and bad things that it is impossible to just classify it with one word. So, here are the good and the bad that we experienced. Individually, some of these things may sound petty, but lumped together, they have to be considered in evaluating the cruise. Finally, we love cruising and had a good ...

First off Carnival needs to do something about the doors on the balcony and staterooms they are hard to open and slam hard when closed! which doesn't go to well when you are trying to sleep and you have people around closing balcony and staterooms doors ,i was woken up several times through the cruise , I've never experienced this on any other ship ! the food options were a hit or miss, the deli ...

We were on the NCL EPIC in June and loved the ship. Going on Carnival only 2 months later was a risk. And even though there were some really nice things on the Miracle, it just couldn't compare with the EPIC. We really liked leaving from Manhattan because you can get a really nice view of the buildings. After NY, we were in the middle of the Atlantic ocean until our first stop 2 and a half ...

We parked the car and got right on the boat. Accommodations We were very ...

Highlights - the ship is nicely decorated and mostly clean and well-kept, our cabin/mini suite was great, good balcony, great bathroom for a cruise ship, well-attended by the room steward. Cruise director and his staff were very good, friendly, entertaining and hard-working. They are the best I have seen on a ship. Embarkation and debarkation were both very smooth, even at ports of call ...

Went on this cruise with our neighbors, just to get away. Got to New York early, checked in without any trouble. Room staff were still cleaning our room which we expected. Cleaning staff could not do enough for us. And that is about where it stops. Dress up nights were a joke. Still had people coming into the dinning room with shorts and t shirts and baseball hats on. Waiters were excellent ...

This was our 7th cruise and 2nd with Carnival. It probably will be our last with them. I will be brief and list my personal opinion on pro's and con's: Pro's: 1). Room/suite was nice. Ship is rather new so room size and bathroom was nice. 2). Staff - dining and room service staff were great. 3). Enjoyed...San Juan, St Thomas (3rd time) and Turks (the cruise area Carnival has is nice but was ...
