One of the biggest surprises on CARNIVAL

Sail Date: April 2014
Destination: Alaska
Embarkation: Vancouver
Recently we cruised on the CARNIVAL MIRACLE. We don't cruise on Carnival any longer because I was a cruise snob!! I cruised on Celebrity mostly, and then on Royal on and off. I have been on 25 cruises and I will say this cruise was one of my top 5!!!

I expected Carnival to be glitzy and the food just so-so, because the three times I had cruised on Carnival that is what we experienced. The food was not very tasty before, but this time the FOOD was wonderful!! The SERVICE was even better!! The DEBARKATION AND EMBARKATION was THE BEST I have ever experienced which I think is a lot to say after 25 cruises!! Even the SHOWS AND ENTERTAINMENT was a surprise...every show was great!!

The only reason I booked this cruise was because we had only 2 days to go somewhere, so in one day I found this cruise, where we could drive to the port and off we would go. Carnival was my only choice, so we said...why not...we could just eat in the specialty restaurants since the price was so More crazy CHEAP!! $400 plus tax etc. We had a beautiful ocean view room and our service could not have been better!! I booked this on a whim, and I would do it again!! I am a new lover of Carnival...which I never thought I would ever say!! Less

Cabin review:

Port and Shore Excursions

Boat Tour

Everything was perfect!! Private tour and highly recommend...if you can find them!!

The cruise lines need to find another port...this is very boring and the shops are ALL THE SAME!! I don't want to shop for the same stuff I can find next door!! We found a wonderful breakfast local diner where we had brunch and then walked around a bit and went back on the ship to have a facial!!
