We live 45 minutes from the Port of Tampa and sail from there almost exclusively now on the Paradise. We were thrilled that Carnival placed a 7-day cruise out of Tampa. We have been on 46 cruises and 33 on Carnival. This cruise was a bounce back offer from the Paradise casino on a cruise we took in Jan. 2018 and the price was deeply discounted. We also received OBC,This was our first time on the Miracle and loved the ship. It was in great condition and easy to navigate. We had a French Door cabin on Deck 4 and enjoyed the space and having the natural light. We always do Your Time Dining and enjoyed the food very much. We ate at the Steakhouse twice during the 7-day cruise and loved the ambiance and the food. I spend most of my time in the casino whenever it is open and enjoyed the slots very much. My husband attended some of the shows and played in the casino, too. The crew was very attentive in all venues. We would highly recommend the Miracle. Read Less

February has been a good time for us to go on a cruise and this February was great as well. Embarkation was very efficient. Tampa has its act together. I really liked this ship. It was so easy to get around and there were plenty of public places to sit and visit. Our cabin was a barely obstructed view balcony which served our needs very well. The best dining for us was in the steakhouse with the included bottle of wine. I also enjoyed the breakfast meals whether through room service, on the Lido or in the dining room. Lunch on the Lido was also fine. I was somewhat less impressed with the dining room menus for dinner. There was a good variety of entertainment and activity choices for young and old. On this cruise there were fewer children and more seniors probably due to the fact that it was a seven night cruise and that it was not yet spring break. We were pleased with the service on this ship. We visited four ports. Although I am not a beach person, I did enjoy sitting on a lounge chair in the shade at the beach at Mahogany Bay in Roatan. I would consider sailing again from Tampa on a different cruise or on this ship with a larger family group. Read Less

Our first cruise. We went with cruise experienced friends. Overall, it was a great trip. If you drink alcohol, I encourage you to buy the drink package. The cabin was on Deck 7 with a balcony. The room was clean and housekeeping staff were amazing. Bring a small power strip because the older ships have few outlets. Food was great every day. Comedians were funny. Excursions: We did too many. Next cruise we will limit it to one. Cozumel MX - Cozumel Country Club golfing - Fantastic Mahogany Bay Roatan, Honduras - The beach was absolutely beautiful and staffed perfect. Belize - Mayan Ruins - We spent 4 hours riding on a bus through the country side. This tour was not worth it (the money or the time). If we had known that it was going to be so long and boring, with only a flash of incredible sites, we would have skipped it. My advice, don't waste your time or money on this excursion. Try something else. You would be better off laying on the beach. Grand Cayman - Coral Garden & Stingray City Sandbar - I never thought I would let a Stingray touch me, but interacting with several of them at once was truly amazing. Read Less

I did not know what to expect after hearing good and bad on Carnival. So, I did what I always do, I decided to take a chance. I'm so glad I did. I will make a few recommendations first. Get your cruise booked months in advance. Book your parking (if driving)in advance. Read the reviews on the tours, in advance. Get your passport squared away. There are some cruise ticket holders for sale on line, if you want them. Get your cruise tickets just before you leave. You can book your land tours in advance but you pay when you book. That may be good for budgeting. Get your camera batteries charged just before you leave. Bring your phone chargers, dramamine and Bug repellent. Finally, they allow you to bring a case of soda and a bottle of wine p/p. I really recommend this one. Okay so the cruise. Trip scheduled to go to Cayman, Mohogany Bay Honduras, Belize and Cancun. First stop, Cayman, we booked the Stingray city and Reef snorkeling trip. Awesome. Allot of time spent with the stingrays. Everybody got a chance to pet and even kiss the rays. We had a chance, at the end, to eat local food before boarding the ship again. Next stop, Mohogany Bay. We booked the Private Island with lunch. This little Island is a sanctuary for animals found in need of help. They nurse them back to health and release them back to the wild. They also have a Mayan Temple and an arena. The Food, Animals and Temple were all way batter than expected. Next, Belize. Mayan ruins and River boat tour. Wow. An actual Temple from way back. Again, Awesome. This tour was the best. Lunch place is provided and you have to buy your lunch for about $10 buck. Affordable and good local food. Lastly, Cozmel and the Secret River tour and lunch. Awesome. Very informative and really cool. Literally. I don't want to spoil all the fun for you so I will not speak about everything at each place. I will say that I highly recommend all 4 of these tours. They were the highlight our land trip. Ok, now the ship. The Miracal was fantastic. The service was fenominal. Cabin Stewart was great. Food was great. I recommend the Steak house and the Chefs Table highly. These are must do. You have never had a meal like the Chefs table offers. Well worth the money. In all, everybody was genuinely interested in knowing if you are having a great time and what can they do to assure you are. Every thing about this trip was fantastic. I can't wait to take another trip. I asked many people on board, if this was their first or tenth trip. Many said this is multiple trips on Carnival and they only travel on Carnival. I asked, why? Cost, fun, service, ships, crew and bang for the buck. I'm going Carnival again. Are you? I heard so many different comments, good and bad, on Carnival, I was not sure what to expect. So, as I often do, I decided to take a chance. (People are so fickle). First off, I would recommend getting in town the day before. I heard some people talk about delayed flights, traffic etc. They were stressed. Also, get all your stuff, tickets, passports, etc before time. The day of the cruise was a very nice experience. We arrived at the pre arranged time and everything went as expected. We dropped off bags and I parked with, again, the pre reserved valet. They took my car and we were off to our vacation. We followed direction and went to check in. Unlike the airport, this TSA experience was pleasant. 1 - 12 pack of soda p/p and a bottle of wine p/p is allowed. I recommend this. We continued to the check in desk and that went off without a hitch. So far so good. We were then called and allowed to board. Here we go. Once on board, they directed us to the bar. Imagine that. Starting off with a drink. We were later allowed to go to the room. We unpacked and chilled out for a bit. We got underway and prepared for lunch. For our first meal on board, it was pretty good. We later went to customer service to confirm our tours. We booked 4 tours before our trip but you really don't have to do that. You can wait till you arrive to book land tours. I recommend reading the reviews on each tour. It will help you make a good choice. I did that and found 4 tours that were highly recommended. Booking ahead of time also helps with budgeting money. You can pay for this before the trip. As you will find out, they require a credit card be tied to your on board account. That is how you charge evening on board. We walked around the shop and learned our way around the ship. We ran into the SPA people. If you don't want to spend a ton of money, run away. They are very good sales people and you will be caught up in the excitement of getting a great treatment We later checked in for dinner at the main dining room. It took me 3-4 days to figure this out but you can order everything on the menu or even seconds. Now you know. As for the food, wow, very good dinner. Read Less

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

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.

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 them. There were long lines for some of the restaurants, but they went very quickly. Serenity adults only bar and pool was wonderful considering the amount of children on the cruise. My only complaint is that it is too close to the waterslide so you could hear the kids screaming (and not in a good way) LOL. Our assigned dining was perfect and we only had to wait once, and it was a 10 minute wait, so not bad at all. We spent a lot of time in the Skybox Lounge watching sports. They have the BEST bartenders on the boat! Read Less

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 of service. We ate more in the dining room this time, and were very pleased with the food and service. Sea Day Brunch is an ABSOLUTE must! The awesome Maitre D (Yussef) got us a table for 4 for dinner and that was great! The dining/galley staff (Richard, Kadek, Anil, Ashok, Vibin, Jerry), were always there at the perfect times. We were invited to a tasting in the galley, which was an amazing experience! We did hit the steakhouse which never fails to please- well worth the small extra charge! Being with another couple, we spent more time out of our suite, and found a great band at the Red Frog Pub- Liverpool- which could play anything from the 60's to present. There was always a great crowd there. Valisha, Shervet, and Elvis always provided great service. Our Suite was always immaculate. Our steward, Rodel, definitely earned our respect! All in all, another great cruise. We will miss the Miracle, but look forward to being on the Splendor again! Read Less

This is a smaller ship so therefore less people and I had a great time. The Christmas activities were really nice. My cabin stewards were great despite the amount of cabins they were servicing, and my cabin was well serviced. Room service was on time and very friendly. The dining room staff were awesome and super fast delivery of food or drinks. I am booked back on this same ship next Christmas The cabin is an accessible one which I need as a am an above knee amputee. The roll in shower works really well with a nice big bench. There are plenty of grab bars around the bathroom as well. There was plenty of space for my wheelchair to get around the cabin. The only down side to it is if you are restricted completely to a wheelchair you would have problems getting out on to the balcony. There is a large step to climb over to get out there. With my prosthetic leg on this was not a problem but it would have been nice to roll out there in my wheelchair. Read Less

We and three other couples choose this trip because we like a lot of sea days, wanted to see Hawaii again without the grueling flight, and considered it a great value. We flew in from Pittsburgh on a direct flight to LAX a day early - somewhat surprised how many others on this flight were also on this cruise. We stayed at the Queen Mary, which was fun, historic, and very close (walking distance.). Everyone in our group was retired except for myself. I am 68, my wife 64 and we were in the younger 25% of this cruise. I thought we were on a Holland cruise again. My wife and I are Diamonds, two other couples got FTTF, and the fourth couple did not think it was worth the money. I have to say that on this cruise, they were probably right. At the Diamond lunch we talked to the Hotel manager, and he said that there were 78 Diamonds, over 700 Plats, and over 250 FTTF. The ship only holds about 2100 people, so if you add in the Suites, about half of the passengers were priority at some level. We all had the earliest check-in time of 12:30, so we arrived at noon thinking that we would get right on the ship. It was a little disorganized, and they were already into the zones. We got into a LONG priority line, whereas the regular line seemed to be moving very rapidly. We all managed to get on about the same time, with the non-FTTF friends only about 10 minutes after the FTTF friends. We were all able to go right to our cabins because it was after 1:30 by the time we made it on the ship. The food on this cruise was very good. Our friends who do not cruise as often as we do thought it was fantastic. We all agreed, however, that the deserts were a disappointment (with a few exceptions.) The Chocolate melting cake was okay, but how many nights in a 15 night cruise do you want the same desert. We loved the Key Lime Pie at lunch, however - but they only had it once. Pizza was great. No Guys, but the burgers were okay, and we liked the chicken fingers which are not available on most ships with Guys. We loved this ship. Yes it was old, but there were plenty of places to get by yourself, a sensible layout, almost no line (except at GS and tendering) and a wonderful staff. We always enjoy Spirit class vessels over the larger mega-ships and there over-crowded public areas. Entertainment was exceptional. Greta comedians, good shows (especially the Magician and hypnotist) and one of the best rock bands that I have ever heard on a ship called the Liverpool pub band. Three brothers and a life-long friend playing some great stuff. Large enthusiastic crowds every night. Lots of trivia, etc. Always something to do. We all had Deck 4 partially-obstructed view French balconies. A great value. Not much of a view, but a large room with a couch and doors you could open and tase the salt sea. We chose morning service. Not crazy about having to decide and I wonder how the had the nerve to increase gratuities and reduce service. But our Room Steward was effient and nice. We are going on this same ship and room in February, and are looking forward to seeing him again. I know that I could have chosen twice a day, but they work so hard that I did not have the heart to do so. Two things that I was not happy about was the Guest services line and the Tendering. I relate both of these to the exceptional number of priority people on this ship. Our friends who had FTTF and us had to wait a long time in lines at GS while the regular lines went a lot faster. This was due to the fact that they had two or three people on the regular line but only pone at the FTTF line. Sometime the FTTF line was actually longer than the regular line, yet they never moved another person over. It was no big deal though. we would just return later, or wait it out. Our FD TTF friends were not happy, however. They actually paid extra for this and had the non-FTTF cabin get taken care of way before they did on one occasion. I told them they could relate their issue with GS, but they said they were not going back in that line again. Ports were wonderful - but what else would you expect from Hawaii. We rented cars in each port and did out own excursions - saved a lot of money. The only exception was Kona where we used the $10.00 hop-on bus. Good choice there. Leaving the ship was easy. We had a late flight and just waited until the last call and walked right off. No customs form on this port Read Less

This is cruise we were looking forward to for a couple of years. Cruised from Long Beach terminal and was surprised how easy is was to embark. Past reviews painted this terminal as a nightmare, not so and we did not have FTFUN! We stayed on the Queen Mary the night before and was awed by the ship features. fabulous. The Miracle is an older and smaller ship but that is part of the charm. We previously sailed the Breeze, Dream, which were larger ships. As usual, Carnival did not let us down. Our cabin steward was Luis and he did a great job taking care of us. Our server were Airnars, Blanka, and Marie. They are the reason we continue to use Carnival. They were personable, fun, caring and love their jobs. After one night they knew our names and our likes.Entertainment was pretty good. The hypnotist on the main stage was awesome. Our excursions on all our ports were great. Also the weather in Hawaii was a sunny 80 all the time were were there. We had an early flight and was concern about making the airport on time (1:15 pm flight), but no problem. We did a self disembarkation and we were at the airport by 10:30 pm.

We spent 2 days in Long Beach prior to boarding the ship. The free bus around Long Beach was very useful - really did not need a car. We had flown into LAX and then took Uber to the Queen Mary. Uber was a great experience - our first time using this service. Recommend it highly - cost was less then cost of the shuttles. Had never been on the Miracle, but had traveled on the Legend 2 times. Liked the size of the ship. We felt the décor of the ship was "different" but not horrible. The crew decorated the ship for the holidays and it was impressive. We thoroughly enjoyed the holiday décor and the celebrations. This was our first time being Platinum and we enjoyed the "special" treatment. Embarkation was a treat - buffet was not crowded. We do Any Time Dining and shared a table all but one time - it was a great way to meet different individuals and enabled us to have interesting conversations. Entertainment was wonderful - the dancers/singers were great and very personable. Thoroughly enjoyed the offered enrichment on this Journey cruise - Nancy the naturalist, Steven Katkowsky, Academy of Fun, the juggler's, mentalist's, the Hawaiian representatives - they all made sea days and evenings fly by... Adam and the Fun Squad made trivia, games, and events around the ship so much fun. Dining and Lido staff were attentive and friendly. Sea Day Brunches are always enjoyable. Dining staff "shows" were fun. We rented cars in all but 2 ports. We rented from Dollar - the cars were fine, our recommendation is that you do not use Dollar's toll free number...the reliable information on this number leaves a lot to be desired. Did an excursion in Kauai - NaPali Cruise and Snorkel. This was a wonderful tour. Snorkeling was limited due to high winds and waves but traveling along the NaPali coast line was terrific - got to see tail of one whale, spinner dolphins and a sea turtle. While on Oahu we snorkeled at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve - this is a great place to see lots of fish - no standing on the coral reefs but it is an easy place to snorkel right from the shore. This was our first time to Ensenada - we got off the ship for a short period of time and walked along the main "shopping area" - but have decided we will not do it again - not a place we wish to see again. We would definitely do this cruise again Read Less

Excellent! Went to Mexican Riviera on Miracle with my adult daughters and had a fantastic time. Love all the activities. The comedy club comedians were great as were the shows, loved the 80's themed show and activities on Thursday. Keeping connected with each other on the Carnival Hub app as well as the features of the app, such as the ship map, daily itinerary and dinner menus, port information, etc. was very beneficial. In regards to customer service, I have never seen such excellence by all! This was my 3rd cruise and while customer service has always been very good, the customer service on Miracle was over the top. In particular, our servers at dinner: Ayu, Gusti, and Ray, were absolutely incredible. They remembered our names from the 1st night and had our drinks on our table ready for us when we arrived at our table every night. A great vacation. Read Less

the price and date was right for us. Faster To The Fun was a great option and we were lucky to get it. The best cooked salmon and lobster I have had on any cruise! Loved the cold fruit soups and vegetarian curries. Just wish they had creme caramel or more creme brulee! I ordered low sodium meals and I would get the menu the day before each day, to order my meals. I was very impressed. We loved the "Your Time Dining" as we could go when we wanted, which tended to be early anyway. And we always shared, we could request the same table each time for the server. The shore excursions that we picked for the ports were a really good choice. Horseback riding in Cabo, Salsa & salsa in Mazatlan was so much fun. And the Rhythms of the Night show in Puerto Vallarta was amazing. THE perfect setting! As good as Cirque De Soleil, I think we drank too many drinks on the boat over there! The food was great and the crew entertained us on the way back! Also the Behind The Fun tour is worth it. Only 2 tours with 16 guests per tour so sign up as soon as you get on borard to avoid disappointment! Spa was way overpriced as usual but then it is not owned by the cruise line, so as expensive as any spa on any ship. Don't get dragged in to their promotions. When I can get a massage at home $25 - $39.00 why would I pay 199.00 just because I am on vacation? The entertainment was good but it was the same dancers every night with just different music themes, I personally did not like the style of dancing. I thought we would have different acts and not the same cast every night. Although the mechanics of the stage were impressive. Punchliner Comedy Club PG shows were good and 1st 3 adult comedians were good, but did not like the last one who picked on audience members constantly and was not in good taste at all. While it can still be adult content the "F" word does not have to be every second word!! It can be just as funny without it. Yes, I know we were warned not to stay if we were easily offended, but really!! Only thing I found difficult was the smoking as it seemed to permeate trhoughout the ship at times. Wish they could have an enclosed glasssed off area to enclose the smokers, and no smoking in the casino!!! we avoided Deck 2 so as not to go throught the smoke! Lee our Cruise Director was awesome so was Sarah B our Comedy Club hostess, loved the cat ears!! So many little nooks and crannies to relax in and be quiet if you wanted to. May not have found them all in only 7 days! Wish we could have stayed on to go to Hawaii!! We will sail this route again! Read Less

The crew was very friendly and always willing to help you with anything. I had FTTF, and it was nice to drop off my carry on bags/beverages before heading off to eat. It also came in very handy at the Guest Services desk. The Muster Drill was a train wreck and took what seemed like 45 minutes. The cabin was a balcony obstructed (deck 5)...and the lifeboat didn't obscure the view enough to care. The food was really good as was the service. The Serenity was fabulous though not always serene, but getting there literally at the crack of dawn is a must if you want a wicker cabana. It was annoying how many people put their stuff down and didn't return for hours on end, but the staff was good about removing their stuff if they were gone long. As usual, there were those who didn't honor the dress code for the MDR, but I was certainly glad I didn't see anyone in a bathrobe in the buffet this time!! Read Less

Embarkation: Another wonderful Southern California day. Traffic at port was light. We arrived a little early as did many of the 550 Diamond and Platinum guests. Carnival reception and check-in team were dressed appropriately for a Hawaii Cruise. After checking in at the normal reception area we were directed to an outside seating area to wait for embarkation to begin. All in all, it went quick and efficiently. 5 of 5 Room 5129: Room ready and clean. Steward Sakti stopped by and discussed service and our expectations. We requested cleaning once a day with nightly turndown, Ice, Robe and glasses for bath room. We do ask a little more than expected but he understood and accepted the challenge happily. We had this room Steward last month and what a difference in service provided on this Cruise. Sakti might be reading my Cruise Critic Reviews. Highly recommend Sakti and his team to anyone. 5 of 5 Steak House: 1st night We had reservations for 8:00 PM seating. We like to take advantage of the wine special. Went in and set at the bar early, ordered a bottle of wine. The Bartender IGusti from Bombay had to go to store room to get it. After a little delay he showed up with our wine, was very talkative and friendly. Ask to be seated in Isabela’s section where we were recognized from our last visit, and greeted with enthusiasm. I had the Spinach Salad, Lamb, baked potato and Chocolate Sampler. Was not disappointed but the Lamb was a little tougher than I expected but tasty. DW had the spinach salad, with Lobster Tail with mash potatoes. Her Tail was smaller than expected in fact it was about the same size as the one in the main dining room on formal night. Isabela and her team waiter Julie Rashal provided exceptional service. On DW’s birthday we were treated again by the Casino to another visit to the Steak House. You know it, we ask to be seated in Isabela’s section. I had to go back to my normal Filet Mignon but had the escargot as appetizer. DW had Lobster bisque, cream spinach and Lobster tail again. Vibin the Chef visited the table and we discussed the cooking class he was part of the day before. One complaint on second night we ordered a bottle of wine from the wine list and again they didn’t have it on hand. We selected the second and it also wasn’t available even in the store room below. Come on Carnival why put the wine on the list and not have it. Overall the Steak House on the Miracle has become a place we look forward to visiting at least once on every cruise. Meet and Mingle: Held on 1st day at sea 4:15 Sam’s Piano Bar. I hope you can read the smile on my face. This was one of the best turnouts I have seen at a Meet and Mingle. Over 45 CC members along with Lee Mason Cruise Director and Bryan the Entertainment Director. Carnival provided snacks and refreshments. Lee talked to the group extensively about his experience with CC and it was very entertaining. Later Lee and Bryan made it around to every table or group to talk with everyone. Bacchus Dining Room: Assigned table #171 Head Waiter Ahmad, Team Waiters Denisalv and Lone. Emailed the Maitre D’ a week before and requested Ahmad’s table because Ahmad’s experience stands out. Ahmad is one of Carnivals most seasoned Head Waiters. Denisalv made Ahmads job easier they worked together smooth and without confusion. Over the 15 days we got to know our hard-working team from Bacchus Dining Room as they also worked the lido dining area. Sky Box: What a surprise, Dimitar Andrievki is back in Sky Box. We have had the pleasure to visit and hang out with Dimitar in the past and consider him as cruise family. His help Nebojsha from Macedonia is just about to become another extension to the family. Both do whatever it takes to provide great service. Going to another bar or store room to get Perrier Water is an example of the Carnival Service at its best. They had their hands tied on this trip because the World Series was on local TV and we didn’t have signal in the middle of the Pacific. Why can’t Carnival Cruise Ship receive a full list of sports channels anywhere in the world? Why is it that Carnival does not provide west coast TV channels on Pacific Cruises? Who cares about local Miami news and weather when in Alaska and Hawaii? Entertainment: We had the pleasure to meet in passing the Entertainment Director Bryan on many occasions. We noted he was very interactive with the passengers as he moved thru the ship. Cruise Director Lee always on the move and hosted many events we attended. Not going to list all the events we enjoyed but have to make special mention of a few; 1- Georgios George and the Comedy club acts were all good and some exceptional. 2- The impromptu Group sing in the Mad Hatters ball room very fun, 2- The Liars Club with Lee, a very hard laugh to be had by all. 3- The Stage Hypnotist was lots different than other stage Hypnotist Carnival has had in past cruises and “I loved it”. I think his name was Dan Shoener. 4- “LSB” Lip Sink Battle was entertaining. 5- Chef Jerry J. Furtado had a demonstration of his cooking and I thought it was very interesting. Oh, for those who do not know me, my specialty is eating not cooking. 6- Lee had the best Fun Squad we have come across on our 20 cruises on Carnival. Oh, what a great time! 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. We need more nonsmoking areas in the casino with better ventilation. The Casino Hosts Hazel and Elley kept all the action on the move. Thanks for the big smiles and personal touch you both add to the casino. Ports of Call: Kahului, Maui: Took an Uber to Kaanapali Beach, Sheraton Hotel on a hunch. $32.68 Uber-X ride took about 45 minute great views and the driver had good ideas and info. Sheraton ask $268 for a day pass includes 1 room. Not in our budget but the beach was pristine and free. No public restrooms so come dressed. It was interesting to watch the people dive off the cliff and snorkeling was good little coral but lots of colorful fish. The Uber driver recommended the Monkeypod to eat we stopped at the Hula Grill and Bearfoot bar next door. The food and service fit the bill. Honolulu, Oahu: Uber to WaikiKi beach and visited Duke’s bar and restaurant. The view of the beach is great its fun to watch the surfers and Hawaiian Canoes. Could be happy just spending the day on that beach. Next stop Maui Brewing Company for coconut porter beer, its just across the street. Last of the morning stops was Tommy Bahamas dinning above the clothing store on 4th floor. You can put your toes in the sand while having a great Hawaiian dish. Back to port for our late afternoon excursion. Aloha! off to the “GERMAINE’s LUAU” now this is a party. The bus ride is a little long in rush hour traffic. Oh yea! Honolulu has rush hour traffic jams. Back to the good and important part “can those girls ever Hula”. Good show, good buffet food, lots of traditional acts. A little rain didn’t slow down the pace. Highly recommend for all ages. Nawiliwili, Kauai: We decided it was a little expensive to take the helicopter ride around the island so we went and booked a private excursion on our own. AirVentures Hawaii 1/3 the price in a 6-passenger air plane. They picked us up at ABC store just as you exit the port and took us to airport short 5-minute ride. We went the long way so the driver could show off the scenery nearby, that was an extra! As for the plan ride, it couldn’t have been a better day or experience. It had rained the day before and that made for more waterfalls than normal. If you ever go call AirVentures and do it! Kailua-Kona, Hawaii: Warm and dry that morning as we got off the tender, grabbed an Uber to the Straw market. Driver said “try the apple-bananas” it’s something you can’t get on the mainland. Straw market was a little let down because it wasn’t quite as big as we were led to believe. Purchased some bananas and pineapple. The driver was right about the apple-bananas being very good. Think I ate 3 and pineapple in Hawaii is a no brainer. Coffee was expensive and they didn’t have the Kona Coffee Macadamia Nut Brittle we were looking for. After shopping we heeded back to the closest beach near port. This turned out to be Marriott Hotel next to Kailua pier where the tenders dock and next to the Kamakahonu National Historic Landmark. Nice beach with a few rocks under the water. The snorkeling must be good, lots of people were snorkeling and scuba diving just off the pier. Next stop after the beach was a nearby bar for a couple of Cold Kona Beers. Returning to the pier Lee and some of the funs squad was waiting with cold towels and water for those in line for the tender. That’s the special treatment and fun squad make waiting for tender fun and relaxing. Hilo, Hawaii: This was a great Free self-coordinated excursion. We disembarked and after exiting the cruise terminal Boarded a new large Green Bus. During the trip the bus driver gave us and explanation of economics of Hawaii, talked about the local business, told the story of how the freshwater lagoon along road came into being. All in the short distance to the “Walmart”. Now let the shopping begin! Driver was a hoot and the mall next to Walmart had all the stores we are used to seeing back on the mainland. This Walmart has a souvenir section just for us tourist. We found it, purchased the Kona Coffee and Kona Coffee Macadamia Nut Brittle we were looking for. And as normal at Walmart, the price very reasonable. On our return trip our bus driver entertained us with a few songs, great singer. The best song he saved for last “Just hang loose”. Back on board “Aloha Hawaii” Ensenada Mexico: We debarked and turned our phone on to make phone calls and text messages. Did not leave the compound. Over all this was a great Cruise. Will rate it a 5 of 5 because they do not have a 4.6 notch on the 1-5 scale. Read Less

This was our dream cruise. We have always wanted to go to Hawaii as we have never been there. So when we saw this cruise with Carnival, we jump at it two years in advance! Everything about this cruise was perfect. We booked everything through Carnival, to include airline tickets and transport from the airport to the port of long beach. Everything, and I mean everything was perfect! We were on the ship once we arrived the port of Long beach within 30 minutes. The port personal were very professional and friendly and quickly showed us the way to the beautiful Carnival Miracle. This is the first time we have had the luck on being on a Spirit class Carnival Ship. We have sailed on the Carnival Dream, Triumph and Fantasy and we really loved the Carnival Miracle. They layout was easy to understand, and everything was easy to find. The thing we noticed the most was how caring and friendly the crew was. From the cruise directly, Lee, to the bartenders, the folks in lido deck and out stateroom staff. All Perfect, always happy smiles and wonderful service. The ports of call we perfect, we got to visit 4 different islands of Hawaii (5 ports) and one port in Mexico (Ensenada). ALL Hawaiian ports were amazing. We did excursions on ALL ports. The tour guides we had on each excursions were the best, all very knowledgeable of their island and what they were showing us. I give the highest marks I can for ALL excursions, which were also booked through Carnival. On Maui, we went to the mountain top, WOW, what a view. We visited Honolulu with the city tour, perfect tour and we learned a lot about this beautiful city. On our third port, Kauai, we went to the most amazing canyon, although not the Grand Canyon, beautiful in its own right. One to the big island with a port of call in Kona, we took a coffee tour, best coffee ever. Final stop was Hilo, another mountain top tour to almost 14000 feet up! The best view of the sky I have ever had, and lots of telescopes, even got to go inside one. 4 sea days and back to the mainland for a quick stop in Mexico, we did the beer and taco tour...WOW, great tasking beer, and Mexican tacos, taco bell has been lying to us all these years...LOL. After 15 days, back to the port of Long beach, with yet another perfect nearly 15 minutes off the ship and transportation back to LAX. This was the BEST carnival cruise we have ever been on. Some might say carnival is not the best line to pick, but in our opinion, you can't go wrong with Carnival Cruise line for ANY cruise you might want to try. We love Carnival and we loved this cruise even better. THANK YOU FOR A CRUISE of a life time! Read Less

Room 6216, Balcony port side. Overall rating of the Cruise was a 4.5 out of 5. Embarkation: It was a beautiful morning as we came to port in the Hotel shuttle. Traffic was terrible at the port for some reason the semi-trucks delivering to the ship were stacked up and made quite a traffic jam. Took over 20 minutes longer than it has the other 4 times at this port. It is my opinion check in at Long Beach for the diamond and platinum cruisers is one of the easiest of all the ports we have embarked from. After boarding the ship our room 6216 was ready, our Stewards name was Sakti and his teammate was Samsul. First impression was good he explained that he services rooms either morning, night or both. We let him know our room is not going to be a mess but we do like it tidied up in the morning and again a turndown in the evening. We know we are asking for more than expected. If we are satisfied we make sure we add to the gratuity and make note of Stewards name on the Carnival survey. Sakti didn’t quite measure up to what we expected to receive to be over and above compensation. Housekeeping Manager needs to work on few things, overall the linen is starting to show wear, the door hinges to the closets need to be repaired, curtain would not close all the way due to damage. This is not major but just a little work is needed. Steak House: 1st night our party of 4 had reservations for 5:30 PM seating. The Spinach Salad, Filet Mignon and Chocolate Sampler are my favorites. The food and wine specials make it must do on the first night at sea. This group was super, we were in a joking mood and had fun with the servers. Esibab from Poland, Cosmin form Romania and the newly added teammate Magdlena from Poland were very delightful, fun to interact with and deserved special mentioning. They seemed to have as much fun as we did. Vibin the Chef from India visited the table and answered questions. This made for a special evening for our friends who were both celebrating birthdays. Meet and Mingle: In our room was an invitation to the meet & mingle private party, 3:15 in Sam’s Piano Bar. Arrived a little early and was beginning to worry that another meet and mingle was going to be a dud, due to poor participation by Cruise Critic participants. To my surprise about 13 -15 Cruise Critic people showed up to meet Adam the Cruise Director and Bryan the Entertainment Director. Ok, Adam it may say “Cruise Critic” but we are not all Criticizing your efforts we like to share our experiences with everyone. Yes, we talk about the Good, Bad and the Ugly. Thanks! I did enjoy the information you shared at the meeting. Bryan we arrived home on Sunday night and our PVP called next day, we are coming back for the Hawaii cruise 10-1-2017. Unable to get on Meet & Mingle roster so will be looking on the Fun times and Hub for times and dates. Serenity: The Serenity on the Miracle is the best of the fleet in my book. 1st off the area is large and has an adult only pool and hot tub. The layout is such that the clam shells fill the aft section and lounge chairs are on both sides of the pool. Leaving another seating area covered by the large Bar. Now there were special people working the area this week that need mentioning. Toto behind the bar always ready to serve, called us by name every time. I Komang Adi Putra has a smile that never goes away, Subira always around Serenity or in dining room. The person who works the towels and polices the children, I was not able to catch her name, she deserves a pat on the back. Some people just don’t understand what adult only means (21 and over). Bacchus Dining Room: Our party of 4 was assigned table #193 Head Waiter Ahmad, Team Waiters Christian and Catricia. All smiles, happy and ready to serve. We let it be known up front we liked our wine prior to our meal and they made that happen all week. It was obvious this team had not worked together before because each individual did an excellent job but together they didn’t sync as a team. I bet by the end of the next cruise they will be one of the best teams on the floor. Now Cruise critic readers here is one for you to think about. The grape decor in the room is unique but some are riper than others, I mean the bulb is out and the grape is darker. How many can you count? Two the 1st night and 5 by end of cruise as we waited to debark. A couple from Colorado got us started and now you will think of it every time you enter the dinning room. Have fun it’s a game. Say thinks Gill every time you see one. Alchemy Bar: On most cruises, we like to meet at the Alchemy Bar prior to meal and often before bed for a night cap. This Alchemy Bar does not measure up to any of the others I have been to. Alchemy = a power or process that changes or transforms something in a mysterious way. Bar = Drinking establishment. We use to boast to our friends “the Alchemy Bar was a place you could tell the Alchemist what you would like to taste and he/she would concoct a cocktail impressively meeting your expectations. Apparently not at this one, they stick very close to the menu. I noted that they are not using as much infusing alcohol as other Alchemy Bars on Carnival. This was my biggest disappointment of the cruise. Red Frog Pub: We use The Red Frog as a meeting place or just to relax and listen to the music. Tasha always had a happy face on and great attitude when we interacted. When we realized she was from St. Lucia our hearts dropped because they were hit by hurricane Harvey and Maria. It takes a special individual not to let the stress of the events affecting her family not affect her demeanor on job. Our prayers go out all those on ship who have family effected by this year’s Hurricanes. Entertainment: We made it to the 80 rock and roll show, and three comedy club acts. All were great and are highly recommended. Casino staff Hazel and Elly keep things moving in the casino on sea days and at night. This is usually where I complain about the smoke in the casino but in the Miracle Casino they seem to have the ventilation balanced a little better, even thou anywhere near the bar reeks. The drink service in the casino rates very high. Laundry: Not everyone uses the laundry service but one of my favorite benefits of being platinum is laundry. On this cruise, I was impressed that Arief left his card in with my returned close. Arief your seldom recognized efforts behind closed doors is key to making a special vacation for all on board. Thanks! Guest services: We had two reasons where we had to use guest services. Application of Carnival cards processed by Angelica was quick and pleasurable. Very well done. The other visit was not quite up to par due time of wait for service. Ship Maintenance: If you read about the dining room the lights are not a complaint just a detail we have fun with. Please when Ship arrives at port can someone delay the grinding and chipping of the paint until after say 8:30 AM. It has a tendency to remind us of an alarm clock and because I am retired I have developed an allergic reaction to such devices. Our room 6216 was a little warm and at night there were times when it was almost hot. At the Alchemy Bar some repairs are needed with the foot rest at the free-standing tables. They are loose and could cause a twisted ankle or a fall. Overall this was an exceptional cruise. We love the ship and crew. Keep up the good work as we will be returning for 2 future cruises.

The night prior to the cruise, my husband and I (he is 59, I am 60) stayed on The Queen Mary for $119.00 (plus taxes and etc) and it was literally only a less than 5 minute walk to the Miracle embarkation port. The ship was a couple hours late coming back into port from the previous cruise due to a power outage the day before, so our Faster To The Fun (FTTF) embarkation was a little delayed. They had a nice shaded area with seating for us to hang out in though while we waited. We were a little anxious about Hurricane Norma which was to hit Cabo the day we were to arrive and what kind of changes there would be. But they quickly passed out a flier to everyone to let us know that we would be going in reverse order with 2 sea days first, then Puerto Vallarta, then Mazatlan, Cabo and then one sea day. We thought it was a brilliant solution and was very pleased to be able to visit all of our original destinations. Check in was a breeze and we went straight to our deck 8 AFT extended balcony cabin, dropped off our carry on's and walked up the 1 flight to the Lido deck for lunch. Everything was very good and service was prompt with a smile. We then walked around the ship to familiarize ourselves with our surroundings. Everything was laid out nicely and the ship is absolutely beautiful. Our luggage had arrived by then and we unpacked while waiting for the Muster drill. The drill was very quick and painless. We loved our AFT view cabin as it was very convenient to the buffet, the adult only pool area and the dining room. We had a nice balcony that had 2 chairs, a table and we had also requested a chaise lounge. The glass on the balcony was dirty from the sea water, but our room steward cleaned it for us upon request. The bed was comfortable, and we had plenty of cabinet space. There were 2 closets with plenty of hangers. There was a refrigerator, a nice size flat screen tv and a large desk and stool. There was also a couch. The bathroom was large with a nice size shower and plenty of shelves to store our personal care items above the sink area. We were asked whether we wanted the cabin cleaned once or twice a day. We preferred twice a day and everything was done promptly. The cabin was very clean. We went to the cruise critic meet & mingle where we had a nice turnout of about half of the people that had signed up to go in Sam's piano bar on our first full sea day. Adam the cruise director was there and hung out with us for a while. We were provided pastries and plenty of cold and hot beverages. We ate in the dining room nightly and did the my time dining and never had to wait for a table. Service was always excellent and the food delicious. We had breakfast and lunch in the buffet and the food was all very good. Nice variety. We really enjoyed the entertainment in the theatre, the comedy club and the Red Frog Pub. The shows were all good, the comedian's were some of the best we have seen (there were both PG and over 18 shows) and the band in the pub was excellent! The waitress in the pub was awesome! In Puerto Vallarta we did the Rhythms of the Night excursion, which was great except for getting soaked clear through to our underclothes on the boat ride over. This was not a pleasant experience. A full review has been written on the Carnival site. In Mazatlan we did the Salsa and Salsa which I highly recommend. Plenty of margaritas and salsa with chips. Dancing was fun. In Cabo we did the sail and snorkel fiesta and had a lot of fun with this. We then walked to Cabo Wabo, Sammy Hagar's place and had nacho's. It was an easy walk, but it was very hot, 93F and humid. We did all of our excursions thru carnival, which was great since our itinerary had completely changed due to the hurricane. Disembarkation was as smooth as embarking. We set out of checked baggage the night before by 11pm. We left the cabin by 8:30am with our carry on luggage, ate breakfast at the buffet and walked off at 9:30 am with no wait at all. We took the Carnival transportation bus to LAX. It was all a very smooth process. This was our 15th cruise, our first on the Mexican Riviera and probably my favorite so far. I wouldn't hesitate to do it all over again. Read Less

Had a wonderful trip board the Miracle. Left Long Beach CA Aug. 26th, returned Sept. 2nd. We enjoyed our 2 days in Cabo San Lucas very much. Our ship was diverted from our 2nd port, Puerto Vallarta, due to a tropical storm. The schedule was rearranged, a 2nd port was scheduled, and we continued on without a hitch. The entire crew was welcoming and gracious from the first day to the last. Dinner each night was especially enjoyable due to our fabulous wait staff Jovan and Natalino! Dinnertime quickly became our favorite time of day! My daughter and I haven't been able to make it through a meal yet without saying "ShowTime!":) Dian our stateroom steward as well as our Serenity pool waiter, (I feel terrible, I can't remember his name), deserve accolades as well.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – life is an adventure. And sometimes, in order to fully enjoy it, you just have to go where the adventure takes you. That is especially true with cruising; wherever that boat goes, it takes you. Choose to enjoy all the little “firsts” that cruising has to offer. But since this was our 16th time cruising the Mexican Riviera, I really had little hope that there were any more firsts to be had. It was the hottest part of the summer here in Phoenix, and I knew that Mexico would be no better, just more humid. I am so glad that I was wrong. In fact, my thinking was so far off base, the left fielder could have tagged me out. One of the best parts of a Mexican Riviera cruise is finally arriving onboard to the constant smiles of Carnival’s cruise. And there is no ship on which I feel more comfortable than on Carnival’s Spirit-class ships. Feeling that familiar décor around us, watching “virgin” cruisers as they see the glass elevators racing up the 10-story atrium in the center of the ship, and hearing the staff welcome us “home.” I don’t think I will ever get enough of that. But this time was different. As we walked down the hallway on Lido deck, I suddenly heard a booming voice, “It’s my brudda from anudda mudda!” I recognized the familiar banter of one of our favorite waiters, Noel, with whom we had sailed several times. Noel is from the Phillipines, and has been with Carnival many years, and consequently has sailed with us off-and-on for many years. After a round of handshakes and hugs, we caught up on each other’s lives in the intervening time, and then we headed on to lunch. Sitting on our balcony afterward, we loved feeling the California sun drenching our bodies as the cool Long Beach harbor breezes wash away all the wear from the long drive across the desert. We know that the interminably long “muster” safety drill is still ahead of us, but just this short couple of hours is enough to reset us into a cruising mood. As the time approaches for the muster, we begin making our way down to our assigned station with the rest of the ship’s passengers, arriving with plenty of time remaining before the ship’s horn assembles everyone shoulder-to-shoulder, back-to-front on the deck. After we are released from our forced conscription, we are in no hurry to join the horde clogging the few elevators not set aside for baggage delivery, so we take a few minutes to enjoy one of the best features of the Spirit-class vessels – a wrap-around deck traversing almost all the way around the ship. This is the area to which we will retreat at night during the voyage, as it is completely removed from all the photographers, ‘looky-loos,” and shops. It allows us to walk, hand-in-hand down the boarded deck, gazing across the railing out into the darkness of the ocean, the wind in our hair as the wake of the bow crashes against the ship’s sides below us. But for now, we are content to let the hordes evaporate around us as the harbor breezes prepare us for the evening ahead as they gently skip small sailboats across the calm Pacific waters. Dinner on any Carnival ship is a special time, especially if you love food, and even more if you are willing to take the time to enjoy the Main Dining Room (MDR). Looking back through the photos of our meals (yes, I’m THAT guy), I am amazed at the time devoted to presentation of these excellent mass-produced meals. The plating is perfect, colors and flavors are amazing, and the aroma hits you before the plates can be carefully laid before you. And if you are truly adventurous, make reservations for Nick and Nora’s Steakhouse where, for a nominal extra charge, you can revel in the most succulent choices of beef, or enjoy tender, flaky, filleted fish and the most wonderful desserts this side of the North Pole. And if the MDR is not your cup of tea, there is always the multiple flavorful offerings in the Lido deck buffet. Evenings onboard; so little time, so much to do. There are stage shows, karaoke, comedy club, karaoke and the Piano Bar, if you happen to be a Piano Barbarian. By the way – there’s karaoke, in case I didn’t mention it. I love Carnival Karaoke. I love the music, the amazing displays of talent – and lack thereof – and I love the camaraderie of this group who, by the end of the voyage, become a small, close-knit family of friends and admirers. While the selection in Carnival Karaoke can be surprisingly sparse at times, depending on when the karaoke machine was last updated – if at all – at least the quality of the songs they do have is good, and the karaoke host, Jess, was amazing. Not only did she actually work tirelessly to ensure a good time for all, she actually seemed to enjoy herself in the process. In addition, at least on this cruise, the cruise director, Adam, who was subbing for his vacationing Entertainment Director, made an extra effort to provide a good karaoke venue each day or night, even it meant singing before dinner. Speaking of Adam, he was given an opportunity this cruise to show just how much experience matters when things go south. Just before one of Carnival’s amazing stage shows, the stage broke – and when I say broke, I mean it became completely unsafe to be used by dancers, which of course made it impossible to stage their production shows. Adam pulled in favors from across the nation, providing other variety acts who could safely maneuver the precarious setting, while keeping his guests thoroughly entertained throughout the cruise with jugglers, magicians, special comedians like Jon Dicrosta and Brad Tassell, along with a thoroughly fantastic Detroit inspired show with Marcus Anthony. We were blessed to experience another first, at least for us, when Yousef, the Maitre ‘d, invited us to the galley for a private tasting of the upcoming meal. Standing there surrounded by officers and staff, we went down the line with them to sample and comment on the numerous dishes that would be laid shortly before our fellow guests. Many were standard fare that we had experienced – and enjoyed – in the past. But little did I know that in that atmosphere I would venture out to try dishes that I never would have ordered before that night; dishes such as beet carpaccio (that’s right – I said BEET). The subtle flavors of thinly shaved fresh beets marinated in citrus juice and spices burst into a cacophony that hit every single tastebud all at once in the mouth. Amazing! Definitely NOT from a can. The staff onboard were so friendly, and we had a wonderful time just getting to know them. I previously mentioned Noel and Jess, but since we never really left the ship, we spent a lot of time with entertainment host, Leon, formerly of Nickelodeon fame, as well as Cheyenne, the floor manager. They were truly delightful to just sit and talk with about their lives before cruising, and life onboard. If any of the Carnival beards are reading this, I suggest keeping your eye on Leon – the man is truly Cruise Director material. As mentioned briefly before, we never really got off the ship. I guess that could be because this was our 16th trip on the Mexican Riviera, so we’ve pretty much seen and done everything possible. We would love for Carnival, our line of choice, to come up with more varied itineraries, but at this point, at least off the West Coast, we have the Mexican Riviera, or we have the short 3- and 4-day party cruises. Of course, it could also be that we see the ship as our destination, with plenty to do and experience, and that never gets old. The fact that it was hotter than blue blazes in Mexico probably was a factor, too. So we enjoyed the respite of not having to dodge all the other guests, and instead had nice, long walks around the Miracle, almost like it was our own private yacht. The sea is a wonderful place to experience God’s glory in person, and this trip was no different. At sea, all the muggy heat on land is gone, and cooling breezes waft over your slightly damp skin as you relax on your balcony taking in the views. On one of our last nights, we experienced another first – an electrical storm at sea. I can’t even begin to describe the beautiful light show that nature put on for us. The purple skies suddenly lit by crackling lightning emanating both from the clouds, and between them, followed by bursts of thunder, just seconds – or in some cases milliseconds - after. In a past life, I designed lightning protection for land-based structures (in fact, most of the largest buildings in downtown Phoenix have our systems), and to this day I still like to close my eyes when the lightning crashes down, and see dollar signs reflected in my eyelids. Some things in this world are just too beautiful to be feared. So there it is; the beauty of the sea, the sparse beauty of Cabo’s arches reflected in the rippling water, and the excitement of the jungle area around Puerto Vallarta, and all the amenities of the ship came together to form a wonderful experience of firsts that proved over and again, cruising is an adventure. Live the adventure and enjoy, regardless of what the adventure brings. Read Less

Chose this cruise because we had a discount through AmEx and it was fairly close to where we live. Was able to make it from north county san diego to port in less than one hour. Parked at terminal it was about 20 dollars a day. Paid a porter 5 bucks to take our bags while we parked. Garage has very low ceilings watch out. Paid for the faster to fun and go on ship right away with no delays. Once on you go right to buffet. You have to wait almost 6 hours for bags to be delivered to your room so pack all meds and bathing suited in carry ons. We were very impressed with food. The buffet food was above average for buffet food. Could get a bit crowded but never ran out of food. The formal dining room was hit and miss, more hits than miss. The waiters were outstanding. When we couldn't decide what to order they would suggest ordering both. Waiters were very friendly and remembered all our names and preferences. The entire crew was 5 star. They worked their but off to accommodate your every need. They do try to nickel and dime you at every corner, (pictures, jewelry, buckets of beer, drinks, bingo cards). Pools are a bit small for a full ship but always managed to find someplace to sit. The decor of the ship was OK. The main atrium was the nicest part of the ship. The stage shows were a bit below average. The sound cut out in the middle of one show. The comedians were amazingly funny, full on belly laughs. Magician is also a must see. One issue however was the commedians and magician played in the smaller mad hatter theater which didn't even come close to accomodating everyone. People would stand in the isles. Plan to get there 20 minutes early to find a seat. We went on two excurtions, sail, snorkel fiesta and Yelapa snorkel and hike both were amazing. Overall we really enjoyed the cruise. Not the newest and fanciest ship but felt the profecionalism of the crew more than made up for it. Read Less

Me, my wife, and my two adult daughters ages 22 and 25 had a great time. Getting on and off the ship was always easy. Our two cabins 5150 and 5152 were plenty large enough and the attendant did a great job preparing our rooms. The only concern is that my room 5152 could have used little better air conditioner. It didn't cool down as much as we would have liked. We were at table 200 for all of the dinners. Our waiters were the best ever. So funny, and always smiling. I thought the food was great. In Cabo we all did the the sailing excursion. It was the best ever. This is a must. In Mazatlan my wife and kids went on the mini speed boats and had a good time. I went golfing at El Cid. I do not recommend. The people were great, but the course, not so much. A caddy is mandatory for the those coming off the ship. Fee+ club rentals+ caddy fee+caddy tip was about $250. I wouldn't have minded if the course was worth it, but I play courses in So Cal for under $50 that are superior. I also bought the soda card for the cruise. I recommend just drinking the free tea. It never seemed easy to get a soda. I thought that the drink prices were fair. Good pour on the alcohol, and decent variety of draft beer. I enjoyed their Thirsty Frog beer. One last thing, this cruise did have a lot of young children, which is cool, but not many passengers in the 21-30 age group. My daughters had a great time, but not much for them to do in the evenings when my wife and I went to bed. We figured this would be the case even before we boarded. I think the 21-30 group is more suited for the 3 day party cruises. Read Less

For those who say: "Anything but Carnival", they should have been with us the week of July 8 on this ship and itinerary. The service, food, and entertainment were superb. We have been on over 85 cruises and have done this ship and itinerary before several years ago, but just wanted a summer gettaway other than the usual Caribbean. We flew to Los Angeles and had booked Super Shuttle. They showed up on our phone with an app that asked if we were down yet, what terminal, and asked us to notify them when we headed out to their location, a little after noon. We waited only a few minutes and the shuttle made only one stop enroute Long Beach. We pulled up into the garage, porters were waiting for our luggage, and we headed to the priority check-in, because as Platinum VIFP members, we have Faster to the Fun priority check-in. We were soon headed aboard and went directly to our cabin. Cabins were available to those with Faster to the Fun by 11:45, and to others by 1:30. After some pizza for lunch and the lifeboat drill, we were on our way about 5pm. The weather was great the whole week except for the last sea day returning to Long Beach. Food really surprised us. We had sailed most recently on Carnival Vista, their newest ship, and even that didn't match this. Food included prime rib, lobster and shrimp, mahi, lamb shank, roast tenderloin, great soups...both hot and cold ones...and amazing appetizers including things like oysters rockafeller. They feature an appetizer and entree each night including items representative of the ports in Mexico, and they, too were very nice. They had all my favorite desserts, like crème Brule, and Grande Marnier soufflé. We purchased a 5 wine package at the mid-price of three offered, and it included some very nice wines, including a prosecco we enjoyed on the first cruise elegant night with our lobster and shrimp. The lobster was cooked perfectly, which is not often the case in mass production. Speaking of cruise elegant, there were 2 nights like this. Karen enjoys dressing for dinner, and I took a white dinner jacket with my miniature medals. Not many dress formally anymore, but women, especially, dressed up. We have found that the Cherry on Top candy shop offers flowers and will make corsages. We went to order it the for the first cruise elegant night and the clerk there immediately recognized us from the Vista. The corsage was only $6, a rose corsage to pin on. We kept it fresh in the refrigerator in the cabin and Karen was able to wear eat for several nights before a new one arrived for the second cruise elegant night. We enjoyed cocktails each evening in the Red Frog Pub before the shows and dinner. Each evening there was live music there from 6:30-11:30pm and we were able to dance some before or after dinner. The entertainment staff include the performers at all the shows. There were four live performances with singers and dancers, and most nights it was offered twice, so we could attend before dinner. I can't say enough about the performances. There were very talented people, and two nights they included live performers on piano or acoustic guitar to accompany the performers. They were some of the best we have seen on a cruise in quite a while. We didn't attend any of the comedy/headliner shows. I was struck by the friendliness of the staff. For example, one morning at breakfast in Lido, a server approached the table next to me and asked if he could get anyone coffee. A few days later he approached me, and I talked with him for a while. He went on to say that the crew tries to be "family" and that they want to treat the customers as family, too. It was typical of our interaction with the crew, in general. I have to commend the cruise director, Adam. He has been with the Carnival Miracle for over 2 years. Completely outgoing, he does a great job. I was most impressed the afternoon on a sea day when they held a Military Recognition event in the theatre. I have been at these before, as I am retired Navy, and they never have the cruise director there. Adam served 5 years in the British Navy, and served in Afghanistan. They recognized people by the branch of service, by the campaigns...Vietnam, Deserts Storm, etc. Then they encouraged the participants to take the mic and share any experiences. It was a very moving and meaningful session, which I appreciated. Cabo San Lucas was an 11am-7pm port. We have been there several times and did take the glass bottom boat out the tour of Land's End, the Arch, Lovers Beach, etc, and then had him drop us at a beach. We were glad Mazatlan had returned to the itinerary. We had prebooked an excursion through ShoreTrips that took us on a tour of the harbor first. Mexico's leading shrimp and tuna fleets are located there with over 700 vessels. We then were dropped at a point on Stone Island and driven to a beach resort. The water was too rough for snorkeling, but included were body surfing, boogie boards, horseback riding, banana boat rides, or even a sort of hayride. There was an open bar and lunch was served with a choice of seafood, or a combo of chicken and seafood. We returned to the ship about 4pm. Puerto Vallarta has built a new pier and is rebuilding the facilities at the existing pier. We took a taxi downtown to the Malencon (boardwalk), visited the cathedral, and stopped for lunch in an air conditioned restaurant (it was 97F and humid outside). Very reasonably priced, Karen enjoyed a red snapper on rice with coconut and lime that she said was the best snapper she has had. I enjoyed four fish tacos on blue corn tortillas with great sauce. We had to stop at a Senor Frog's and then headed back to the ship, due to the heat, and the taxi was only $8. The morning we arrived in Long Beach we had until 8:30am to vacate the cabin, leaving ample time for breakfast. Great eggs to order or omelets daily, plus the usual fare, and daily they offered eggs benedict or salmon benedict there. We then took our carry-on luggage to the dining room, where they had the Platinum and Diamond and Fast to the Fun passengers wait until we were called to leave. We were off the ship by 9:15am, met by Super Shuttle, and at the airport in plenty of time for a 12:40pm flight home. Read Less

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 made it easy for people to look directly at you, so there was very little privacy. Embarkation was fast, we were one of the first on board, we flashed our gold card and was eating lunch while the majority of the other cruise ship passengers were still waiting in line to get aboard. Serenity lounge is where we spent most of our days lounging in the cabanas, and enjoyed the pool when they refilled it with warm Mexican water. Entertainment- the after dinner show was pathetic it reminded me of a high school musical, probably the worst show at sea and I've been on 68 cruises. On the second night we received a private booth for 3 in the dinning room, we considered the food very good enjoying two lobsters each on captains night. The only negative in dinning was the lukewarm soup, and the oysters rockefeller was the worst we've ever tasted, and if you like ceaser salad I recommended bringing your own dressing because Carnival considers mayonnaise with a hint of anchovies as ceaser dressing. Our favorite activity was the bean bag toss, we beat the best teams aboard and got first place. The bean bag toss was held almost every day so we definitely enjoyed playing. The ports we visited were Cabo, Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta. We reserved a super ponga and the boat, the captain, and live bait were waiting for us. We only fished for 3 hours but we got 5 fish, 4 were pez gallo (roosterfish). Mazatlan, we walked to the boats to take us to stone island, I saw the cruise critics recommended Victors on the beach however nothing was going on over there so we moved to the shaded cabanas at Carmelitas and enjoyed the banana boats. As we were leaving, we saw the place right next door to Carmelitas serving huge barbeque shrimp. In PV, we enjoyed 3 halves of lobster on the beach I believe it was called Playa Los Muertos for only 350 pesos which was around $18. All in all it was an enjoyable cruise, but we don't plan to going to mexico again next year because the Splendor is the worst in the Carnival fleet. ps the room service turkey sandwich is the best you'll ever eat Read Less
