This is our 16 cruise, we have cruised with Carnival multiple times, but, this was the most disappointing cruise ever. It was not the employees, but they lack of service provided. First the ship is so outdated and not very family ... Read more

This is our 12th carnival cruise, we chose Miracle for the itinerary. We decided to try a balcony aft cabin, which was a big mistake, I was still vibrating a day after I got home. We were on deck 7 and the way the balconies were angled ... Read more

1) Could drive to embarkation port... so that's why we did this cruise. 2) We got to the port after our designated check in time, so it was very easy to get on. 3) Ship was old - and the pool area needed serious updating. ... Read more

Flying to a cruise is tedious. First no matter where you go, there is the 2 hours of pre-flight torture. Then there is the super small seat, the ridiculous fees for every bag, peanut and drink. Then you worry that the bag you just paid ... Read more

We wanted a reasonable cruise for the whole family. The ship was clean and kept up. All the staff was friendly. The rooms were clean and the cabin with the balcony was roomy enough. There was Plenty of food with a good variety. I ... Read more

This was a seven-day cruise roundtrip from Long Beach, California with visits to Puerto Villarta and Cabo San Lucas. Hubby and I are experienced cruisers (close to 50 cruises). Until this cruise, we thought that there could never be a ... Read more

Disclaimer: This is our first vacation from work in 6 years, so having the time off to do this was a bonus in itself. This will give readers perspective of my optimism. Fact: This vacation is as good as you're willing to make it. Go ... Read more

The ports and tour I went on were great but the Ship and the program and lunch were not as good as the other cruise I went on. 1) their events on board ship conflicted like I wanted to do Karaoke and I wanted to do Harry Potter Trivia but ... Read more

My wife and I had a great time aboard The Miracle. This being our 1st cruise we were not sure what to expect. We know there are bigger ships out there but wanted to start a little smaller. We found all staff members to be very ... Read more

This was our second ever cruise, and second Carnival cruise. Embarkation was fast and easy. Although our "check in time" was 1:30, we were on the sip and enjoying a drink by 11:30. Our cabin was clean and comfortable, and our ... Read more

I was pleasantly surprised at the good value we got when we booked this family cruise on the Carnival Miracle. We traveled the week of April 29-May 6 and I knew ahead of time that this cruise would not compare to my first choice, Royal ... Read more

Though I am a Princess girl, I cruised with a friend who is a Carnival fan. She won. The dining room food was excellent, as were the waiters, but the buffet was stingy. The carver meat was always stringy, tough and overcooked. The choices ... Read more

We did not have a say in selecting this cruise. Our daughterinlaw set it up as a family group cruise. We were generally "satisfied" but I'll elaborate. Our last two cruises were on Norwegian and Royal Caribbean. Carnival ... Read more

Chose this cruise for the dates, and I'll be more intentional to avoid spring break weeks in the future. Frequent Carnival customers and it is increasingly difficult to move down to the older boats after being on newer ones. Primarily ... Read more

I spent my 50th Birthday on board Carnival Miracle and had a beautiful cruise. My room Steward was a complete Gentleman, zipping gowns, tying bows, and keeping my stateroom tidy and pleasant. My Late Dining Assigned Seating was ... Read more

I went with my family of 4 and 9 other friends. It was my first Carnival cruise and my wife's second. I hadn't heard great things about Carnival. I heard it called the Motel 6 of cruising. My expectations weren't high for the cruise. ... Read more

When thinking about this cruise, my mom and I were a little bit apprehensive about going on Carnival during Spring Break. But, we easily justified it using these two reasons. 1. We survived Carnival Breeze over Christmas with 1,500 ... Read more

This was supposed to be a fun Spring Break trip for my family but it was the worst vacation we have ever taken! Both myself and my husband got food poisoning from food we ate on the ship! We returned home dehydrated and very sick! This ... Read more

I have to say Carnival Miracle was a good experience, however, there were so many things that my husband and I did not expect, we are not sure if we would book a cruise again. The day of travel leaving from Long Beach California my ... Read more

Just wanted a short getaway without having to fly. Long Beach is about 40 minutes from us by car and very convenient. Parking's not cheap at $19 a day, however, and we ended up on the roof of the parking structure. Check in was quick ... Read more

Arrived at LAX about 3 hours before embarkation. Driver was at Baggage Claim and trip to the Port was much quicker than I had planned, about 30 minutes, not the hour I had planned flights around. Faster to The Fun was a great purchase, our ... Read more

This was my first Carnival cruise, travelling with a hosted singles group of 95, all ages. I enjoyed the cruise, but probably won't repeat on Carnival unless the itinerary is irresistible... it just didn't wow me. Embarkation at Long ... Read more
