not bad for the money

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Apr 11, 2015

for the most part the cruise was ok. first off the boat was clean, our cabin Stewart was nice, our room was always clean and stocked with fresh towels. the organization was for a better word lacking. there was 4 time changes two forward and two back on the return all good with that, except they did the time change after cabo and not before so when we arrived at cabo the boat time was an hour behind. no one on the boat or on shore was sure if we had to be back on board at ships time or cabos time.  tendering  at cabo was another disaster we were suppose to be get off the boat at 1045 first tender boat didn't run untill 1140 ships time so not until 1240pm cabo time so needless to say everyone was late for there tours. buffet food was ok the pizza bar was good most of the time but there is no real change in the food, its the same thing every day which was lacking, this had to be the worst buffet I have had yet on all of the cruise I've been on.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Mar 28, 2015

This was our first cruise and the whole experience was speechless. Just the moment we arrived until we debark was exciting. Wee can't stop talking about it. We are now planning a cruise for every year. This is the way to vacation. Our kids had a blast they were in there clubs made new friends from all around the world. Thanks Carnival

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Mar 28, 2015

the ship is big and comfortable the room was ok, service was good, the food was not as good as the carnival imagination but it was ok.Getting off in cabo was a nightmare,the captain had to delay departure one hour and the shore excursion booked with cruises only esperansa was horrible, the other 2 were mediocre.

Wonderful get -a- way

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Mar 28, 2015

My husband and I really needed to get away and be pampered and that is exactly what we got. It was wonderful. Waiters and dinners were really good. The stewards kept our room made up and at night turned down the bed and made a cute and different towel animal every night. They knew our names and greeted us every time they saw us. That was very nice. Very friendly. The entertainment was pretty good too! I was glad they had comedy shows for family because the adult version was nothing but swear words and I don't find that funny so I enjoyed the early shows. The only thing I was disappointed in was the price of photos. I bought the 16 X 20 canvas for $59 dollars and got an 8X10 for free and I didn't mind that but the rest of the 8X10's were $22 bucks each and I would have loved a few more pic but not for that price.

Great Time

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Feb 28, 2015

This was the last cruise before the ship went into dry dock.  Everything was wonderful.  The food was good, service was great, and this was probably my smoothest disembarkment ever; however, getting on the ship was the worst.  They had checkin set up outside.  We stood in long lines for a LONG time and it exhausted my group of four.  By the time we got in were sweaty and a couple of us with health problems such as bad hip, etc. were hurting.  Once you get past, it was wonderful.  In my opinion, the difference between an okay cruise and an outstanding cruise is the cruise director.  Our cruise director, Kevin, was one of the best.  He was personable and interacted with all the cruisers.  He was a big plus.  The ship's Captain was visible at the beginning of the cruise and interacted with us.  Everyone was wonderful...the ports were wonderful...it was a good cruise.  Wish there had been a bit more activity during the day but it wasn't bad.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Always get a balcony--it is so relaxing to set out on the deck in private and enjoy the view!

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.
