Great Service...Great Destination!

|

We chose this cruise for the length (15 Days) and the destination (Hawaii). Boarding the ship in San Diego was extremely organized, once you got through security. The security line was pretty much a free-for-all. ...

Felt Like a Budget Cruise

Upon hearing that Carnival was beginning to leave from San Diego, my family decided it would be a great first cruise for 5 year old twins. We took a New Years cruise to fit in winter break. My husband and I have ...

Carnival Miracle Panama Canal

We loved everything about this cruise....except the comedian(so bad it was embarrassing- many people left halfway through his performance) and the Comedy Club hostess with her squeaky voice and her fake hair flips. ...

Fun on and off the Carnival Miracle

We chose this cruise for two reasons first because it was departing San Diego (our hometown) and second because it was going to Cabo. We choose a 1:00 pm check in and it was so easy. We did not have to wait in any ...

Old ship needs work

My wife and I picked this cruise despite the fact we swore we wouldn’t sail with Carnival again after our last trip a couple years ago. Compared to NCL and RC, we just weren’t impressed with our last cruise. ...

This was our second cruise with Carnival. Our experience was beyond expectations. Our cabin steward Henry was very accommodating and helpful. I had requested some bathrobes and said the next day would be fine. When ...

Loved the Quirkiness and Size of the 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 ...

We wanted to do something special for birthdays in the family, two of them in December during the cruise. We headed to Hawaii but might as well have flown. 4 sea days there and back were horrible. The second we ...

Great itinerary - Fun Ship for sure

Although an older ship due for dry dock, the Miracle was still a lovely, clean, and inviting ship to be on. (I do hope that they replace the mattresses in the cabins, though, during the dry dock. They weren't very ...
