  3. Carnival Miracle
We were visiting our son in San Diego and decided that instead of renting a place, we would all go on a Mexican Riviera cruise. The embarkation and debarkation were smooth and fast, even with no FTTF available. The shows, food in MDR, ports, and entire experience was amazing. Our favorite was the Rhythm of the Nights in PV. We loved it so much we booked another cruise on the Miracle for next December. The service was phenomenal. I loved the layout of the ship. You didn't have to walk up over and down to get to the dining room! We ate in the steakhouse and the food was superb. We especially liked the Alchemy Bar and the drinks and service there. It is a good place to wait before going in the MDR. There are many places to sit quietly and get away from the crowds (although in my opinion there were no crowds). The casino was smoky though, so be aware when walking through. I highly recommend the Miracle if you like a small, cozy atmosphere for sailing.

Loved the Quirkiness and Size of the Miracle

Cabin Review

Extended Balcony
Cabin 8J
I didn't like this cabin as the balcony overlooked a life boat and the forward view was blocked by and extended balcony on deck 7.
