Fun times in Mexico!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Feb 21, 2015

Had a wonderful Mexican Riviera cruise stopping two days in Cabo San Lucas, and one day in Puerto Vallarta!  We enjoyed a room with an extended balcony (8K) and were lucky enough to book a room with the balcony that is at least twice the average size.  It had two lounge chairs, two chairs and a table.  It was fabulous!  The room was a little smaller than other ships I've been on.  But the wonderful steward made up for it.  Subrata you were outstanding!  We really enjoyed having two days in Cabo.  Two days in each port would make it even more awesome!  (hint, hint)

The service on the ship was very good.  Food was good.  The only negative is the dining experience in the Steakhouse.  Nick and Nora's is on the 10th level and it is open to the atrium below.  Visually it is very appealing.  Unfortunately, the evening we dined there a musician was playing and it just wasn't pleasant to dine to.  We were celebrating a birthday so it detracted from the overall experience.

Embarkation was a little slow.  We paid for a Faster to the Fun pass and it was definitely worth the money.  Would highly recommend that if you are not at an elevated status that you priority embarkation.   Getting off the ship was a breeze!  No problems there.

I definitely would recommend this cruise!  Carnival did a great job.  The ship didn't have the shops and some of the entertainment I am used to but it was great.  So happy I did it!

Good food but only 2 ports visited

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Feb 21, 2015

Good food, pleasant journey. But only 2 ports visited on this trip, Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallerta. Service was good. Had the "obstructed" view balcony but the obstruction was actually one deck below so it worked out well - room was on Deck 5.

great time of year to travel

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Feb 21, 2015

In picked this cruise because we were in Cobo for 2 day.

  it was a great deal

 we enjoy  cruising but they need to start changing thing up.

more thing to do on days at sea.

bands in the bars  fun games, to play.

don't get me wrong it's just after so many cruises it would be nice to have new things to do.

When trouble comes calling - this cruise line was/is amazing

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Feb 14, 2015

We had to abort our trip after just 2 short days due to serious illness in our party. That person passes away today leaving us with memories of a 2 days cruise that we will never forget. The crew and staff at Carnival were amazingly supportive and comforting during this unfortunate incident and they did everything they could to make our departure as smooth as possible. We can never say thank you enough to the staff and crew.

FUNtastic cruise to Mexico with Family!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Feb 14, 2015

I was a little apprehensive about taking a cruise with Carnival because of bad reviews regarding the aging Miracle ship and propulsion problems but we did not have any trouble or bad experience at all.

Food was good, service was great, price was reasonable, common areas of the ship were nice and the shows were entertaining.  I do wish they add a theater to show recent movies during sea days. My kids and I enjoyed our entire trip.  Disembarkation was slow process but well organized.

Our off shore excursion at Cabo San Lucas was outstanding and although at the beginning of our trip the rest of the journey was exceptional because of the Miracle staff and crew.  Enjoyed the many conversations with ship personnel about their experiences and experiences.

ship decor was distasteful.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Feb 14, 2015

The ports on cruise were great. Lots to see and do. Recommended swimming with dolphins. And glass bottom boat excursions. The ship activities were lame. They only last 15 minutes Then we're on to next thing. The pictures all over carnival Miracle were bad. I wouldn't want my children wondering that boat with all the nasty pictures. Last 2 days on ship was boring. Not alot of things to do. Pools were over run with kids and hot tubs were crowded with kids. Serenity pool had young adults and immaturity.

Well a passenger standing by me summed it up saying "I think they call it Miracle because it's a miracle it floats!". They had an engine go down and customer service said there is something wrong with the calibration that they have know about that makes it sputter and shake ALL the time. In our cabin it was intolerable the shaking while trying to sleep (not rocking from the waves).  And forget trying to drink unless you want to wear it. In stating the obvious, a ship that needs a lot of mechanical work, the cruise was nice. The staff was the best we have had, having cruised multiple times. Carnival is the best for families and younger children. Plenty to do for children!

Oh and the shows I give a zero!

Average, but not impressive

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Jan 10, 2015

Having been on several cruises (3 Carnival, Royal Carib, Norwegian, Celebrity) I am comparing this as such, and have to say this was an "okay" experience. The crew was fantastic, very friendly! Cruise director, Troy, was great! The food was pretty tasty, although a bit repetitive on Lido deck. Dining room food was great-thanks to Mirla and Rojelio! The biggest negative would be that this ship vibrates-CONSTANTLY. We were on deck 7 and it was awful, awakening me several times during the night. Everywhere we went on the ship there was this vibrating/shaking going on. Stateroom could use some thorough cleaning/update; toilet area was dirty, hair from previous guest on nightstand, lint/dirt all along edges of carpet, air system nonadjustable & loud (sore throat). Sadly, the bed in our stateroom was sagging. Not comfy at all, and that has always been one of the best things about a cruise for us is how comfortable the beds are and the amazing sleep we get. I would NOT go on this ship again for these reasons.  Crew admitted there was an engine problem and they are docking the ship in March for repairs.  Why they are waiting is beyond me!

Don't miss a night at Nick and Nora's steakhouse! If you're a couple that doesn't want to be around kids, this is not your ship. Parents with kids of all ages, enjoy! The kids will love it!

Go to the Serenity Deck for great views and a quiet and comfortable retreat on the days at sea when you simply want to rest.

Don't miss Nick & Nora's best food on the ship!
