I have taken several cruises with Carnival and really wanted to do the Panama Canal. This may be my last cruise on Carnival, but it won’t be my last cruise. I am saddened because that means that I have to give up all my reward points, I am almost up to Platinum, but My disappointment in nearly every aspect of the cruise makes me sure that other companies can do it better. The staff were wonderful, but every night dinner took more than two hours to be served in the dining room, our room steward was always very late getting our room cleaned up, The buffet tables were ALWAYS dirty, and many times the lines were long to go or come from anyplace. The real problem is that there were simply not enough staff to do the job. All the staff we interacted with worked very hard, but when you are overworked, the overall experience you re trying to create suffers. I also have to say that this American Table menu gets old after just a few days. The food was ok, but it was certinaly not any better than a common chain food diner. There were too many sea days with nothing to really do, and the Fun Academy guy had many, many facts wrong. Read Less

Going through the Panama Canal was something that I always wanted to do, so this was the cruise for me. We have been to Miami before so we didn't do anything special before the cruise. Embarkation was totally smooth; Disembarkation.....not so much. Because of bad weather the ship had to slow down and we were late getting into Long Beach. Then, it took forever before they started calling groups to disembark. We had booked the Carnival Shuttle to take us to the airport and that was a complete disaster; they had long lines of people, but few buses available. Some people were beginning to panic about missing their flights because of getting into port so late and then not having a bus available. This was our 4th time on the Splendor, so we were familiar with the ship, and the decor doesn't bother me. Our cabin was fine; our Steward and his helpers were GREAT! The dining was more of a problem. We had Your Time Dining and didn't have to wait, but the waiters seemed to be rushing around and it took forever for our food to arrive. So, we ended up eating in the Lido buffet more than usual. And I had a problem with that. While they offered a good selection, it seemed to me that the hot food was NOT hot. By the time you got your plate to a table and started to eat, everything was definitely cold. And one night I woke up with severe cramps rolling through my stomach. After heaving up what was in my stomach and spending a lot of the rest of the night sitting in the bathroom, I felt pretty good the next day. The man putting on the Journeys programs has a lot of interesting things in his presentations, but.......he was on the cruise that we took from Vancouver to Hawaii, and the 2 programs we attended on this trip were the same as he did on the previous cruise, so we didn't go to the rest of his programs. The comedy shows were mostly good, although there was one "comedian" who really wasn't very funny. We booked our excursions through Carnival and learned a lot about each of the countries we visited. However, in Costa Rica, we had booked our tour for 8:15 to 12:30 (4 1/4 hours), because we had other plans for the afternoon. The afternoon before, we noticed that our tickets said the tour started at 9:30. When inquiring at the Excursions desk we were told that the tour times had been changed to 9:30 & 11:30. Then, to start with, all of the tours were late leaving the ship. It was 10:15 when we finally left, and we didn't get back to the ship until 5:30 (7 1/4 hours) The ship was supposed to sail at 5:00, but there were 3 busloads of people not back yet. At the alligator place, we were offered a banana and some cut-up watermelon, but other than that there was no place to get anything to eat in that 7 1/4 hours. And when we got on the train (the last leg of the tour), they came through with bottles of water, Coke & beer........which you had to pay for. I don't know how much of those problems were Carnival's and how much were the tour company's. And to add insult to injury......that same tour DID leave at 8:15. We had booked the tour a long time before some of the people who were on the 8:15, so I don't know why we were shifted to 9:30, or why we were told that the 8:15 had been cancelled. As I said, we learned a lot in the ports that we visited, so in general I enjoyed most of the cruise. But, as others have said in their reviews........why do they keep the interior of the ship so COLD? Everyone was wearing sweaters or jackets. Read Less

The Good: Everything on the ship was conveniently located and easy to find. Great itinerary. Just the right amount of sea days. Comedians were "top notch". Last two were very funny and engaging. Our cabin stewards: Voltor & Maria were outstanding. Dining had good variety. Would do another Journeys cruise on this ship! It would be nice if Carnival included the "intercom" messages, that the Cruise Director & Captain deliver, on a TV channel to listen to later. Can't hear the hallway PA system in our room. Also, it would be VERY nice to have a few more news channels on the TV beside CNN; CNN International; CNN Spanish and Headline News. The Bad & Ugly A delayed flight out of Chicago caused us to not get into Miami until 2:25pm. Ship sails at 4pm. Called the Carnival "Travel Hotline" told them we would be late getting in. They said they documented when we would arrive and to call the same number when we got to Miami. Said Carnival would help us get to the ship. Got to Miami; called the Hotline Number; sat on hold for 21 minutes; no one from Carnival at baggage claim to meet us; No one from Carnival anywhere around; No Carnival transfer buses anywhere (we had paid for transfers in advance); Hotline finally came on and said we'd have to find our own way to the ship; And to hurry! Paid $65 for private shuttle; got to pier and had to porter our own luggage. We're Carnival Platinum members. Was VERY VERY disappointed that Carnival would leave passengers stranded with NO help.

The Staff, service and food was just amazing. The Panama Canal transit was very informative and left no question unanswered, almost like a live documentary.I would recommend this to anyone. I traveled with my Husband and my 2 grown boys who shared the room next to us. Our Room Steward opened the door that separates the Balcony ,that way we all four could share one big Balcony and that was also an amazing feature for the Panama Canal Transit. All the Ports we stopped at felt safe and had great excursions lined up for us. The boys got to do the Behind the Fun excursion on the last Sea Day and loved it. They were blown away to be able to see some of the Kitchen,Laundry ,Engine Control Room and even the Bridge and were able to ask as many questions as they wanted. Even tho it was a 13 day cruise, it never felt to long ! Read Less

Embarkation was a breeze, however our ship left the port 4 hours late! We weren't really told why except we could see that all the food was still being loaded, hours after our scheduled departure time. Disembarkation was awful, we stood in line for an hour. Twice our Seas ended up being quite rough, One night we endured 106 mph winds and 20 foot seas. Captain Luca and his Crew on the Bridge was terrific and kept us calm and safe, Bravo! 14 days is a long time at Sea, The fun Squad led by Adam the Cruise Director made the trip delightful. Edward as Grandma Bingo was Hilarious ! Good Job HR for finding appropriate Staff. I'm a 50 something, the fun squad were 20 & 30 somethings and the Average Cruiser was 70 something I'd say. I loved our "showtime" in the dining room, I got up and danced with the staff. A real Stand out for us in the dining room was Raul an excellent Waiter that took care of our every need. He will be retiring from Carnival in a few weeks because he has two small children, I'm sure he will be missed. Our Cabin was kept clean by "G" who tended our every need. The Captain's Table was an amazing Experience, starting out in the kitchen then to our large dining table. So many courses, two I missed at the end as the seas got rough and a few of us got sick and had to leave. It was in a Strange location, we dined in the night club " Frankensteins Lab" which got quite rocky as the seas came up. The food overall was good, Salad, Soups, Pasta and Desserts being the standouts. I wish we had dined at Nick and Nora's one night. Everyone guest we talked to said it was Amazing. The tours at the different ports were at hit or miss, the front desk has very little information. We weren't told what the weather be or the temperature at each port?! We booked a Trip to Antigua in Guatemala leaving the ship in shorts, arriving to our destination and it was 60 degrees! the Casino slots were so much fun being loose enough to get some play time, we saw 3 people win thousands! The best bar on the ship was the Alchemy Bar. The two Bartenders who ran the Bar were Sensational! Names? How can I forget? well the drinks were that good, I loved the Sidecar. The Spa was lovely and I got a great massage, I heard the ship will get another facelift and a pedi-spa... the ship really needs to look more modern and not like its in a time warp! the gym was cozy and never got over crowded.

This was a repositioning of the Miracle to its new home port of Tampa Fl. Carnival put the average age of passengers to be 67 and there were less than 20 passengers under 21. Since Carnival knew the age of their passengers they should of been better prepared. The cruise started by leaving Long Beach hours late due to loading the ship. This set the ship arriving and leaving most ports late. You know a company that can turn a ship around on a dime knows how to load and unload a ship. They do 2 week cruises all the time. So it was poor planning on their side to get the ship loaded, or it was something else but they blamed it on tying to load the ship. We bought the trip to see a volcano in Guatemala through Carnival. Since we arrived over two hours late to the port we started our tour late. Disembarking was a nightmare. They let everyone off the ship at once. We were in line over a half an hour to get off. People were actually trying to get back on the ship when we were getting off after buy souvenirs on the dock. We ended up being toward back of bus. The tour guide could barely speak English. We were supposed to get food but they did not have enough for the back of the bus. They passes out information on Guatemala but did not have enough for the back of the bus. The information provided by Carnival did not prepare us for the trip. Some of the passengers must of researched the trip but about half the people did not research beyond what Carnival wrote up on the site they sold the tour on. Getting off the ship it was extremely hot and humid. The bus we had was on its last leg and the A/C did not work well. When we got to the area to walk up to the volcano it was about 60 degrees. We then discovered the hike was about an hour on a very sandy trail that was about a 25 to 30 degree incline. My wife and I made it about half way up and we asked how much more to the top and we were told we were only half way there. We ended up walking back to the bus, both really cold and I slipped and fell a couple times due to trail quality and that it was already getting dark. Others had to walk down the trail in total darkness. Other issues with Carnival was in Columbia. They let us disembark with two exits but only used one to let us come back on the ship with. We again waited in line in the direct sun. The crew were allowed to cut the line to get back on the ship. Remember average age was 67, so there were some very old people not in great health standing in the direct sun for a long time. Most issues I had were on how poorly organized the leadership on Miracle were. Don’t think I will sail on Carnival again. Read Less

SERVICE AND STAFF - Mayura and Gede were great cabin stewards. Any request was immediately taken care of, and our cabin was always neat and clean. Once a day cleaning was during our dinner seating and completely effective. Thanks a million to our cabin team!! We had laundry done twice on the cruise and it was clean and carefully folded when returned by our stewards, We even got a nice note from I. Putu in the laundry thanking us for using the laundry. In the MDR, Our head waiter was Komang, with our team waiters Made and Vincent. They were very attentive, careful with our orders, and really fun to have around. Their presence at open seating at brunch were chances to see them outside of dinner, and they never failed to please. The cruise director was fun and kept things moving. The Captain and navigation staff were excellent in maneuvering the ship for the safety of the guests and crew. We went through 100 mph winds and huge waves with no damage and little discomfort to guests. We would love to sail with any and all or these crew members again. ENTERTAINMENT - Music, stage shows, comedians, jugglers... they were all great. Carnival booked excellent entertainment for our 14 day cruise. They even focused on rock and roll music from the 50's, 60's, and 70's. After all, the average age on the cruise was 67, with many of us a bit older. OUR music!! FOOD AND DRINK - We mainly ate in the Main Dining Room, with several breakfasts and a couple of lunches in the buffet. The food we had was very good, and the variety was interesting even over a 14 day cruise. We did not feel the need to eat in the steakhouse as we were enjoying the food in the MDR. ONBOARD ACTIVITIES - W really enjoyed the "Journeys Academy of Fun" lectures, and the Panama Canal lecture. They were fun, informative, and covered an array of topics. Tom is an excellent speaker and obviously loves interacting with the guests. We loved the music all over the ship, and played trivia on sea days. We watched the playoff football games in the sports bar, and loved the stage shows in the evenings. Some days we just relaxed and read in quiet corners or in our cabin. The highlight, though, was the full transit through the locks at the Panama Canal. Just WOW! SHIP DESIGN AND CLEANLINESS - We love the older, mid-sized ships. They are easy to move around in, and the decor is reminiscent of old-time cruising. The Miracle could use a dry dock to add some of the newer restaurant venues, touch up paint, carpet, etc., but nothing is really in bad shape. The crew keeps it in really clean condition., even after the spills caused by the 12 - 15 ft waves and high winds we encountered. PUERTO QUETZAL, GUATAMALA - We took the 10 Best of Antigua, Guatemala with Lunch excursion. Moises was an excellent guide and made the best of our time. We arrived in port late due to the heavy overnight storm. Antigua is a lovely old city and worth another visit. Moises was a wealth of information on the history of Central America, the volcanoes in the country, and the Mayan history. I would love a longer tour with him. PUNTARENAS, COSTA RICA - We took the San Jose National Theater and Lunch excursion. Our tour guide was Humberto and our driver was Jaime. They were great! The theater is gorgeous, with one of the 10 most beautiful ceilings in the world. We also went to the National Museum with a wonderful collection of Mayan gold and pottery artifacts. The tour is well worth the cost and we would do it again. PANAMA CANAL FULL TRANSIT - This was an amazing experience. No matter how many films or pictures you see, the transit is mind boggling. The lecture on the canal and history was a great introduction then we experienced the locks with 12" to 18" clearance. If you have the chance to do the transit, you won't be disappointed! CARTEGENA, COLUMBIA - We love Cartegena and were happy to stop there again. We took the Cartegena by Land and Sea excursion. Our guide was Raphael and the driver was Manuel. We got some history on the boat ride and saw the two forts guarding the bay entrance, but the noise made it difficult to hear. We then boarded a bus and went to the oldest fort in the city - amazing structure, but don't try this tour if you cannot walk on steep inclines through the fort in the heat. We had several older guests who had real problems. The city bus tour with good information about the city was enjoyable, but the stop at a high-end jewelry store was annoying. No one is going to shop for expensive jewelry when they are hot, sweaty, thirsty, and exhausted. You may want to ask your guide to go back to the ship early in stead of the shop if possible.

14-Panama Canal Journeys Cruise Room 7192, port side extended balcony, 8A Overall Rating of The Cruise 5 out of 5 Embarkation: Another wonderful Southern California day. Traffic at port was light. We arrived early as did many of the 187 Diamond and 887 Platinum guests (52% of the passengers). Carnival was prepared by setting up additional VIP check in stations outside the normal reception building. Outside seating area was set up for us to wait in prior to embarkation to begin. The ship was late leaving port that evening. I think it was around 8:00 PM before they finished loading everything on board. Not that it affected our cruse that night but did affect our schedule in the long run. Overall the embarkation team did a great job and it went efficiently for the passengers. 9 of 10 Room 7192: Steward Luis had our room ready when we boarded. Wow! with so many Diamond and Platinum it was hard to believe they had it all ready in time. Luis and Putu timed everything well and took care of our special request. We can’t ask for any better than this. I highly recommend Luis and his team to anyone. 10 of 10 Meet and Mingle: Never knew win Meet and Mingle was held. There was no note in the room, didn’t find it in the fun times. Assigned Seating Bacchus Dining Room: Maître D’ Yusef “Miroslav Djurik” has become our favorite always going around and checking in with the guests. We emailed a week before and requested this table because of the location. Assigned table #171 Head Waiter Malawan, Team Waiters Christian and Louis. During the cruise we got to know our hard-working team. They were a new team and at first didn’t synchronize together well but by the end of the cruise they had it all together. Drink service had a little to be desired but was satisfactory. Normally DW and I do not do the Sea Day Brunch but on one occasion this cruise we were late getting up and decided to go. Overall the service was good but the food was cold. Not sure I would recommend. Special Dining Opportunities: Tasting; We were lucky enough to be invited to attend a tasting prior to dining one night. This was an experience! We met Maître D’ outside the dining room 45 Minutes early and escorted to the kitchen. Viben the Head Chef had all the dishes to be served that night prepared for us to sample. We started with the appetizers and finished with deserts. Some of the dishes I noticed on previous cruise menus but never ordered because it didn’t sound good. Now after tasting everything my mind has changed and will try some of the other dishes. Chef’s table; This was our first time to sign up for the Chef’s Table and was a little apprehensive about what it entailed. After signing all the necessary paperwork to enter the Kitchen we were escorted in and stood around a table tasting some of the special appetizers they had made up. Oh! how good, wonderful, delightful just don’t know how to describe it. Afterwards we exited the kitchen and went to the Dr. Frankenstein’s Lab Dance Club where a table was set up for us with assigned seating, 13 people. What a special meal Executive Head Chef Jerry Furtado, put together. After this you walk away knowing what true Artists the Chefs are. Steak House; we dined in the steak house on the last sea day. The service was mediocre this time. The staff didn’t seam to be as friendly and have the spring in their step. The Spinach salad had astringent taste we mentioned it to the head Chef and he let us know it was due to a replenishment stop in Costa Rica, 14 day cruise. Midnight Buffett; The fun times published it would be 11:00 to 12:00. I would assume we will be able to view and take pictures during that time. I showed up at 11:30 some passengers were already serving their self’s and the line was long. Next time I hope fellow cruisers will have the courtesy to acknowledge the given times for viewing and picture taking before eating. Everything included under the term dining on this ship was excellent and would rate it 9 out of 10. Door decorations: This cruise mostly adult passengers and we thought people would be respectful. I couldn’t believe someone would take our personalized magnet from the door, Guess they like our name. Others complained of decorations being stolen also. Shame! Sky Box: Dimitar Andrievki and Nebojsha are great in Sky Box. What a busy place during the playoff games. This two-service personal are great ambassadors for Carnival. Casino: The Casino on Carnival Miracle is one of the best of the fleet when you are nonsmoker. It still reeks yet it doesn’t have a cloud as you walk down the main hall. The Casino Hosts Vicky and Anna kept the action moving. Lenah from Zimbabwe was always on the floor to help and had a wonderful smile. One afternoon I was playing a slot machine and this young gentleman came up and was cleaning the area. Ports of Call: Cabo San Lucas, Mexico: Didn’t have an excursion scheduled for this port. I truly wish I would have scheduled (in time) the whale watching that was sold out. We decided to debark and spend a little time walking around the dock area, have a few beers, purchase a few nick knacks and enjoy people watching. Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala: This was another port we chose not to take an excursion. Debarked and stayed in the compound. There was live music, multiple bars, lots of trinkets and wifi if you purchased enough food and drinks. Early back on board for pool and ice cream. Puntarenas, Costa Rica: We took the excursion “Pacific Bus, Train and Boat” After a long bus ride through the town while listening to the tour director we arrive at the train. We boarded the train directly from the bus, found a seat with a fine air conditioner adjacent. Ok, it was an open window. The train ride took us thru forested areas, back yards and farms. This is an emerging country and you get to see a lot of poverty along the way. Narration had a little to be desired but it was somewhat informative. They served beer and water on board. Leaving the train and boarded the bus for a short ride to the river for a boat ride to view crocodiles and birds. This turned out to be the most enjoyable part of the excursion. At the end we were shown to a covered area to shop and taste coffee. Costa Rica may be an emerging country but they do have reasonable roads and traffic as good as many mid-sized American towns. Panama Canal: This was the day we all have been looking forward to. I was up before the sun having coffee and went out on Lido deck Forward to watch the approach. It blew me away seeing how large and many high-rise building are in Panama City as we entered the channel. Bridge of the Americas is definitely large and busy by anybody’s standards. As we approached the locks it was quite amazing to see the little row boat still being used to gather the lead ropes dropped from ship then taken to Mules. The entire process of putting a ship in that little Lock is just breath taking. We had as little as 18” clearance on each side. We entered first lock 8:30 AM. The entire transit took us about 8 hours. If you ever get a chance to go I highly recommend reading The Path Between Two Seas by David McCullough. It is the entire story of the building of the canal. Check that one off the bucket list! Sure would like to do it again. Cartagena, Columbia: This port we booked an excursion thru Carnival on the “Chiva Party Bus”. It was just what the name says, Chiva bus means all wood open air bus, party means plenty of rum and beer. Had a good time while they took us thru the city to the main tourist attractions. Three local musicians played while we drank and sang. We stopped twice along the way first Castillo San Felipe to see the fort and get the high-pressure sale from the local trinket peddlers. The second was at the Plaza De Las Bovedas where we took a walk up top to see the great views of the city and sea. Shopping here was a little better not as many high-pressure peddlers. Went threw the new part of town on our way back to port. Cartagena is a large city with lots of high rise building and expensive apartments. All and all I was taken back by the quantity of high rise buildings. Grand Cayman: Today is the only beach day we had on this cruise and was so anxious to get to the beach. We grabbed a cab at the port after tendering in and went to Royal Palms Grand Cayman where we booked a private cabana next to the pool. It was a special place, clean pool, swim up and walk up bars, DJ playing music, showers, clean restrooms, access to beach, great food and drinks. Little pricy over all but what isn’t in Grand Cayman. Misc. Cruise Particulars: The music at the alchemy bar prior to supper, the red frog pub in the evening, and on lido were enjoyable. The hot tubs need some work, one in the mid pool had half the jets not working, aft tub in serenity was way too hot. The only tub I enjoyed was the forward hot tub but it was next to the smoking area, go figure. Now Carnival needs to work on the hand sanitizers. When boarding the ship there is no reason that a functional hand sanitizer station cannot be set up prior to entering the ship or at least just after going thru the metal detector. Prior to entering any of the dining areas including lido hand sanitizer stations should be functional. Last but most memorable was the storm! 25 foot seas, with a apparent wind of 103 MPH, at 7:52 PM on 1/17/18 made for a “moving” ride. Over our past 23 cruises I have been through some heavy storms but this one I think was the strongest. Not the roughest but the strongest and largest swells. Must thank the Capitan for turning the ship into the wind and making the ride a lot more barrable for the passengers. Over all this was a great Cruise. Will rate it a 9 of 10 Read Less

We wanted to go back to Panama. Unfortunately we didn't port there. We didn't realize that when we booked the cruise. We went through the locks into the big lake, anchored and then returned to the locks and headed out. It was very interesting but we would have liked to spend a few hours on land there. The trip was 10 days we couldn't Port in Costa Rica due to 70 knot winds and 15 to 18 foot seas...pretty crazy. This cruise was very strange for us. There were only 21 children on board, that was a first for us. The rest of the people on board were all over 60 (us included). I have never seen so many walkers and scooters and canes on a cruise. The comedians even had jokes about all the scooter traffic. It was different to say the least. The crew was awesome as usual and did their best to keep us entertained and comfortable. Hats off to the captain. He did one hell of a job getting us through the turbulent weather. Read Less

The low rating is entirely due to the issue described. Except for the issue described below the cruise would have been fantastic from the service to the food to the excursions. As a ballroom dancer we found the music for dancing was great from Waltz to East Coast Swing. There was a two piece violinists who played music from Mission Impossible - Tango to Michael Jacksons Billy Jean - Hustle to Adel's Rolling in the Deep - West Coast Swing to Cake on the Ocean - Cha Cha. The floor was too small for the Two Step and Foxtrots played. The main issue which spoiled the cruise was the one small child (around 5) who wandered the dance floor EVERY night which made dancing impossible. I took a video which shows the danger this child was placed in. It is amazing she wasn't stepped on and injured due to Carnival's negligence. The band found this cute and even encouraged it. I have tried to contact Carnival about this safety issue to no avail. We are booked on the February 10 2018 Freedom cruise and plan on discussing this with Malcolm. Read Less
