Although my personal circumstances put a huge damper on my cruise experience onboard the Carnival Miracle, I will say that there were no shortage of things to do. The staff was generally pleasant, the activities were well planned, and there was truly something for everybody. Some of the entertainment staff were less than enthusiastic, but they were also young. The guest services teams were extremely helpful in dealing with nearby cabins who were smoking on their balcony, and the smoke came right into my cabin.
The muster drill was arduous, although it was disclosed later on that this was more because of the coast guard than of Carnival or any particular guest. Tender process in Cabo was less than stellar, but there were also two other large cruise ships at the time. I slipped a crew member $20 and got on one of the priority tenders, just in time for my pre-planned excursion (not made through carnival)
Cabin 6218 is very nice, midship on the port side. Only one cabin next to you . Excellent views. Bring two bungee cords to prop balcony door open and sleep like a baby.
Roger's Boat Tours is the BEST operator to go with. Cheaper than any Carnival excursion when you consider everything you get. My own private boat for 2 and a half hours.View All undefined undefined Reviews
Las Caletas Beach Hideaway was the closest thing to heaven I've seen on earth. It is a must do, if you can afford it.View All 89 Beach Reviews
