This was supposed to be a "special sailabration cruise" Nothing special about it! They take your money and make changes at the last minute blaming covid. You never knew you were on a sailabration cruise until the very last day. Lido deck was very boring. No entertainment except a DJ. playing music a few hours everyday. 5 very boring days at sea. Entertainment at the phantom theater was like ...

I planned a 50th Birthday cruise for my husband and I. We did research on Carnival's website thoroughly about Covid, found that you required a 48-72 hour negative test for Covid. We thought that was a tight time frame to expect a result back so we got our test 72 Hours before. It was negative. We have our vaccination and booster shots as well. Upon entering the FIRST initial waiting area we ...

I was so ready to go on a cruise again. This cruise was on an older ship. I know there can be issues. This was just a lot. First, the food was lacking in every restaurant venue. Second, the ship had rules about masks and things that were not enforced, which I found frustrating. Some of the drinks were downright awful, which I have never experienced before. Lastly. In the middle of the night, there ...

We loved everything about this cruise....except the comedian(so bad it was embarrassing- many people left halfway through his performance) and the Comedy Club hostess with her squeaky voice and her fake hair flips. The food experience was exquisite. Indrawan was our favorite waiter. Attentive, professional, and always smiling! The meals were delicious each day. The dining room was spectacular. ...

Warm weather cruise in both the Pacific and Atlantic. Staff was ...as usual, outstanding. The ship was set to be refurbished at the end of this cruise. It needed it. Really could have been discounted because of the needed repairs. Carnival has really fallen off in quality since we started with them nearly 35 years ago. Food quality and entertainment need upgraded. It would have been good to ...

Although an older ship due for dry dock, the Miracle was still a lovely, clean, and inviting ship to be on. (I do hope that they replace the mattresses in the cabins, though, during the dry dock. They weren't very comfortable). The crew was amazing--helpful to elderly and disabled and very friendly and accommodating. The activities and entertainment was varied and enjoyable. Some of the ...

We chose this cruise for the length (15 Days) and the destination (Hawaii). Boarding the ship in San Diego was extremely organized, once you got through security. The security line was pretty much a free-for-all. I read reviews about the ship being in bad shape. Yes, it's an older ship that was weeks away from dry dock, but the ship was in great shape! Very clean and all public areas were in ...

This was my second cruise and it was a day longer than last time and even better than my Carnival Cruise from last year. The service was excellent, the staff was always helpful and engaging and the room was perfect. I loved the activities and all that was provided for us guests; I took advantage of everything I could and enjoyed every minute. The gym was clean and had all the equipment I would ...

We chose this cruise for two reasons first because it was departing San Diego (our hometown) and second because it was going to Cabo. We choose a 1:00 pm check in and it was so easy. We did not have to wait in any lines, our bags were checked and we were able to go to our cabin and put our carry on luggage away. We were surprised on the size of our cabin, it was a lot bigger than expected and the ...

The cruise was chosen by a friend because of the destinations and the price. I had never been to Cabo San Lucas nor Escenado but picking the right cruise line and the right cabin mate is essential. We had an oceanview cabin (1137) which was just enough room for the both of us. Made' our cabinet stewart took excellent care of us and ensured that every need was met, whether it was additional towels ...
