No enforcement of CDC mask protocols

I am shocked to see many people without masks or masks well below their noses in public areas walking around. They walk right by staff and no one says anything to them. The buffet servers even serve maskless people food. If you care at all about Covid 19 this is not the ship for you. I spoke with managers in Lido Deck dining area and pool areas. They say they can not do anything about ...

My wife and I are not seasoned cruisers, having been on the Carnival Splendor and MSC Divina prior to our cruise on the Miracle. However, the friendliness of the staff and customer service on both of our Carnival cruises far outpaced the experience on MSC. The ship itself is mid-sized, easy to find your way around, and never seemed crowded. However, signs of age are everywhere, and a drydock is ...

Embarkation was amazing. We purchased FTTF just a few days prior to sailing. We were on the ship by and had access to our cabin 7233 immediately. Our luggage was not delivered until later. Our first dining room experience left us more than a little apprehensive about further meals. We were served cool entrees. My chicken breast was so hard I could barely cut through it. I asked for ...

The itinerary was what we wanted, which we enjoyed. I found they nickeled and dimed you more than other ships I have been on. Really to charge you for distilled water. It's an inexpensive cruise and that's what you're getting. We usually travel Royal and we can see a definite difference in service and quality of food. The lobster night (my husbands favorite) was a total disappointment. The ...

We do our Christmas cruise, and enjoy the time, ports, and weather! This is our 6th Mexican Riviera cruise, and had another great time. We were cruising with a first time cruiser, and one who had not had a good experience on a long ago cruise. The ship is always clean. The service is always great! There are a lot of families, but nothing annoying. Never had any issues with anything being out ...

What a wonderful experience from start to finish. The ship is a little old, but it still was beautiful. We tried out every restaurant and most of the bars as well. Our cabin steward made some of the most awesome towel animals, the bat hanging from the balcony door was my favorite. Everyone was very helpful. Staff was quick with a drink and quick to clear your dishes when you were finished with ...

We picked this cruise because we've always wanted to do a Mexican Riveria cruise and this one worked for our time off from work. We did not travel with any children or anyone else...just the husband and myself!! The Miracle is a smaller ship compared to the other ships we've sailed on, but it was still an amazing vessel. The cabin crew, wait staff, and all other employees were very ...

We booked a cruise for 22 of us : extended family for Christmas. Youngest was 11 and oldest 78. Overall it was a good venue for multiple ages of family. Unfortunately, they could not book all of our rooms together (we booked 8 months in advance) and we were spread all over the ship. This didn't help the "family cruise" feel. We all had balconies which were good sized. Room steward was ...

Even the waiter acknowledged it was an ...
