This was our second time on the Miracle. We arrived at the ship and were met by a porter as we stepped out of the cab. We had a Faster To The Fun pass so our boarding was expedited. We check in and were on the ship in short order. Our cabin was ready and our luggage was there after the emergency drill was over. Very impressive.
The food on the lido deck was good, but not great. The food in the main dinning room was awesome. Our head waiter was named Howard. Howard and his team were very attentive and fast. The food was excellent.
Our cabin steward was named Ali. He was great and so was our balcony cabin. Ali and his crew kept the place looking great.
We ordered room service. The food was there quickly and it tasted great. The galley even called our room and asked how we enjoyed our food. This was a nice touch.
We had to call security at one point for marijuana smoking on A neighboring balcony. The security officer came to our cabin within minutes and took a report. He then continued to investigate the case. We even received a follow up call to see if there was any further problems.
The entertainers and shows on the ship were very well done. We enjoyed the music, dancing, and comedy. The bar staff in these areas were also very attentive and the drinks were first rate.
We did not do any shore excursions. We did get off the ship and go to the beach in Cabo. We also got off the ship in Puerto Vallarta and went shopping. We had a great time in both places and we felt very safe.
We arrived back in Long Beach at about 0600hrs. We were off the ship by 0820hrs and in a cab by 0830hrs. We were very impressed with the entire Carnival operation in Long Beach.
Our balcony cabin was clean, comfortable, and well furnished. The bed was comfy and easy to fall asleep on. The room was very relaxing.
