Selected the cruise for the ship, dates and cost. The Miracle is an older ship with a smaller guest size than the newer ships. The ship is well maintained for the most part but there are some issues to be aware of.

Embarkation was a little convoluted but not a problem. We were going to be parking the port and received an email about the parking structure at the pier which was not going to be used for our sailing and we would have to park at the Long Beach Convention Center. I dropped off my son with our luggage at the pier and found my GPS most helpful to get to the parking location. A map and directions were provided at the drop off point but GPS is so much easier and safer to drive with. Those who did not drop off passengers and luggage seemed to have a more difficult time making it from the garage to the bus pick up location. The buses were lined up waiting for passengers and we did not have to wait for full loads. Overall the process was well organized with helpful staff and it worked out well.

We had a balcony cabin and it was clean and neat. There is only one outlet at the desk so bring a multi port outlet to charge your electronic devices. The Carnival Hub worked well for dining reservations and its other applications. Our balcony deck was wood and had quite a bit of flex to it when walking on it. The corners of the deck were lifting off around the corners but it was not problem. The lifeboat hoists were equal to our balcony on the fifth floor and obstructed the view a bit and the greased cables had a bit of a petroleum smell while on our deck.
