Miracle 5-day cruise review
"We stayed at the Hotel Maya the night prior which I could not recommend more, they have a "park and sail" package which for $219 we got a balcony room with a view, parking and transportation to the ship its a great deal and a nice place to stay.Only one of the two waterslides were running and the water pressure was so lacking that they had to push themselves down most of the slide...."Read More

Xmas cruise 2022: very well organized, entertaining, great food

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

Fortunately many negative things I read about the ship and Carnival as a cruise company did not happened to be true for us, either Carnival fixed them or we were lucky this time, but I was surprised how well everything organized: we arrived in our designated time range and in 15 min we're on the board having lunch, 1hr later our room is ready, one hour more and our luggage were delivered. ...

Chose this cruise because of the cost. Guess you get what you pay for. Stayed in balcony Cabin #8241. While the cabin was the expected size, found the TV extra small, and a lack of channels to watch. Half of channels were Carnival oriented. No good movies, and no news channels. Bathroom shower floor very slippery and no grab bars provided in the shower, which made taking a shower ...

I have been sailing with Carnival for years now just made Platinum.The last two cruise’s have been very disappointing. The food is horrible and not even free anymore if you want to eat something decent you have to pay extra. Room service cost now and the menu sucks they have you paying for pizza you can get free up stairs. Entertainment during the day was only trivia all day and music on lido ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 30s

We just got back from Hawaii on Sept 30th and this cruise was anything but a Miracle. It started out with 4 sea days which wasn't so bad but it was not only a family vacation but also for my 10 year anniversary. There were about 28 of us in total. I had a stateroom on 1 and found out the first week that the cruise that had just disembarked the ship from Alaska had a lot of covid cases and that ...

I'm ok with Carnival, it's low cost, food is fine the staff have always been wonderful. Yeah the lack of classy types is a bit annoying, poeple bunping into you, feet up on the furniture, children running in the halls late hours. All I ask is that when the ship designates a dining room dress code they enforce it!! We like to dress for the dining experience yet look around and t-shirts, flip flops, ...

I stopped sailing Carnival because I was disappointed in prior cruises. I booked this one because my family had a last minute cancellation of a family camp vacation. I was very, very surprised at how good this cruise was and I would not hesitate at this point to book another Carnival cruise. Other than embarkation, the cruise was nearly flawless. We had a set dining time (7:45) in the ...

Fun Memorial Weekend Getaway to Catalina & Ensenada

I saw the Carnival Miracle departing San Francisco on it's first scheduled service from the City as a new home port. The ship looked attractive, I went home and looked up the ship, found this itinerary, the price was right, so I booked it on the spur of the moment. I live about ten minute walk from the San Francisco terminal, I don't have a car, so I welcome another ship home based in San ...

5 Day SF to Catalina & Ensenada

Now that the Carnival Miracle is homeported in San Francisco, we couldn’t resist taking her for a spin. San Francisco is a beautiful city to sail from and cruising without flying saves time and money. From the pool deck you’ll have magnificent views of downtown, Coit Tower, Alcatraz and the Bay Bridge. You also pass under the Golden Gate Bridge during the sail away party. It’s all good! The ...

We chose this itinerary because it was out of and back to San Francisco. SF is our home port so there was no flying and only 1 hour by BART. The other part of our decision and the prime factor is we got to play golf on Santa Catalina in beautiful Avalon. Those alone was were the pluses. Lines to get onboard were not organized although they tried to make it so. You were to show up at 1/2 hour ...

Spring Break on the Miracle

For Spring Break, we didn’t want to commit our entire 10-day break to a vacation, so we opted for the 6-day, double dose of Cabo cruise on the Miracle from Long Beach. What a fabulous decision! One of my kids decided to join my husband and I, so we had three people in an extended balcony (8223). Here are my thoughts and experiences: Transportation: We had flights for the day of the cruise ...
