Relaxing spring cruise

A truly wonderful surprise on the Carnival Miracle!

We chose this cruise due to the ports of call. We were skeptical, to say the least. Our last Carnival cruise was on the Glory four years ago,...and it was so bad we vowed to never cruise Carnival again! Well, ...

Lots of good ports to visit

Our ship was full capacity. A friend tried to book the cruise, and couldn’t, as it was already full. Embarking was smooth. It didn’t take that long. Carnival staff kept you moving. This can’t be said for ...

Not worth upgrading to a suite

I have been on carnival ships several times and never had a complaint until this ship. First off we paid about 2,500 for the two of us for a suite thinking we would have a better experience and wanted to try a ...

Do your research to make sure "Miracle" is the ship for you!

The vibe of the ship was not for spring break or families. Cruise Director Adam said we "failed to do our research about the Miracle Ship" We had no idea this would not be the same as all the other many Carnival ...
