Carnival Miracle Cruise Review by sue1219ran

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jan 2017
  • Destination: Hawaii
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

We picked this 15 day from Long Beach, California to Hawaii so we didn't have to fly to Honolulu. Third time on the Miracle and it's better than ever. So many great places to relax and enjoy sea days. Service was the best of our 15 cruises! Nick and Nora's Steakhouse was wonderful and the dining room service from Eva and Zodar was superb! While we're both port people, this was the best it could have been with 8 sea days. Our cabin steward Emmanuel and Putu were the very best we could ask for. Coffee Bar on deck 2 was the best. This class of ships is the most comfortable for Journey's Cruising. Plenty of options for activities and for relaxing and playing cards or reading.

Weather required that we miss 2 ports (Hilo and Kauai), which resulted in 2 day stays in Honolulu and Kona. Two perfect ports to be in for an extra day. Kona has tons of shopping and great restaurants within walking distance with some cultural sites as well. Honolulu of course has Pearl Harbor and a city tour, both great! And excellent shopping in downtown Waikiki.

Cabin Review

Cabin 8D 5219

Our balcony cabin was perfect. Not sure what category it was. View was unobstructed and enough room for the 2 of us to relax. The service was above expectations. Emmanuel and Putu anticipated our needs and exceeded them. Very, very comfortable!

Los Angeles

Lots of Diamond and Platinum cruisers slowed the boarding process a little.

Ka'anapali Beach

A great day at the beach at the Sheraton. Food and drink were great and easily accessible. Beautiful scenery.

Enjoyed a sidewalk restaurant in town. The poverty in this city is overwhelming. So, be prepared to politely say no thank you often. Good bargains on leather goods too.
