Perfect cruise with teenagers.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Jul 25, 2015

We have been on 4 Carnival Cruises and this time we took our grandsons, ages 15 and 16.  The 15 year old enjoyed the O2 Club, the 16 year old, not that much.  It is a nice option for the teenagers.

I didn't feel the entertainment was that great as it had been the last few years.

We were surprised the Lido buffet for breakfast and lunch was very good.  We had  anytime dining for dinner and enjoyed it.  We did see the hostess tell a guest he couldn't come in and  dine in a tank top.  YEAH!!!! for her.

The price is so reasonable, you can not not sail.

Disappointed

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Jul 18, 2015

Inappropriate explicit music at the family pool. Cruise Director was notified but the music didn't change until the last day. Jaccuzzi pools outside were inadequate and dominated by people just sitting around the edge. No room for others. Music poolside was horrible and droned on for the whole trip. Entertainment was poor. Steakhouse added a gratuity that I did not sanction. When I complained, they removed it. Just seems like the whole trip was focused on boozing by tattooed troglodytes. Not my type of cruise.

terrible

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Jun 27, 2015

We request vegetarian meal but it was hard to find vegetarian food.

Casino people charged us wrongly about $100, casino manager and staff didn't helped and never gave us credit.

Cruise review

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Jun 20, 2015

Perfect for vacation not needing to fly out of LA just a drive to Long Beach. as a repeat carnival customer the new drop off of passengers and luggage is better organized.carnival Miracle is a large ship with more room to walk around than the other ships I have sailed the fleet.This was my first cabin booking which I had a balcony . I strongly recommend the balcony rooms if your going on a trip greater than 3 days.Entertainment shows seem less lavish still entertaining.The band this time not as good as previous was disappointed like the Filipino bands. Frankenstein disco could use remodeling thought it was corny though DJ was okay.Food never changes I have travelled on Carnival multiple times need a change in menu at least year to year. loved the Pizza Bar though lines could get long and staff was overwhelmed.Cruise director was great and Bingo was a blast.Comedy shoes had several entertainers enjoyed them. shopping staff where kind and courteous enjoyed the raffles. I would recommend the trip to others specially for family vacationers it's very convenient and cost effective

great cruise but buyer beware

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Jun 13, 2015

I and my 3 teenagers had a great time. The staff was very friendly, especially Savio, Rajiv... (really all of the food servers) and Exavier (who tended to our cabin). Our itinerary was changed because of Hurricane Carlos but this was our first cruise and we still had a great time. My only complaint was that I was told anything we spent on board would be deducted from my account "real time"; so that upon exiting the ship, the funds would have been taken out of the account and the balance settled. This information was inaccurate and the funds were not withdrawn until two days after returning which caused a little bit of chaos, as I had a special account set up for just this reason and had allocated a certain amount with to be withdrawn from that account. In essence, when you are told "real time deduction"... give it at least a week after debarking for your account to reflect what was really taken out...live and learn.

Carnival did not provide what we paid for

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Jun 06, 2015

Due to Hurricane Blanca, our itinerary was changed. Before we boarded, we asked to cruise another day. We were told to cruise today or we loose our money. We paid for Cabo and Puerta Vallarta and had to settle for Ensenada (which is a dump). Carnival did not offer any on board credits to compensate us for our money.

Disappointing food and entertainment

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Jun 06, 2015

We have cruised with Carnival before with favorable results. Enough that we booked again. The quality and selection of food was terrible. The activities were non-existent and the entertainment was lame. My mother accompanied us on this trip and commented the buffet at Shoney's had better food. Our entire party  of 8 was bored including 4 teenagers. In addition we paid more for this trip than we have for previous cruises with Carnival to better places. Although they can't control the weather and we missed a scheduled port, the frustration was compounded by our bad on-board experience. When I called directly to the Carnival customer service to complain and ask for some compensation, a credit or partial refund I was told they could not help me and they were sorry. 

We spoke with many supervisors on the ship who agreed with some of our concerns and said there was nothing they could do and suggested we try another cruise line.

I have recommended Carnival many times in the past but won't anymore. Adios Carnival. Hello Princess and Royal Caribbean.

Fabulous

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: May 30, 2015

My husband and I went on this cruise together just the two of us. Was our first cruise and probably the best vacation we have been on. We would highly recommend this cruise to anyone, just make sure you bring a sweater because the wind on the boat is cold. We liked all the raffles the cruise had available at the beginning of the cruise, however towards the end they didn't have as many. The shows were awesome as well as the comedians and the food. The price for the pictures were too high, but that's going to be the case with other cruise lines as well. We would have liked more activities in the morning but if your a night owl there's plenty to do. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five was because on the last two sea days we got a little bored. Other than that this was a fabulous cruise.

Great Trip

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: May 23, 2015

Couldn't have been better. Everything from the customer service at cruises.com to carnival, was flawless. The ship was fresh from dry dock, very well.maintained, staff was friendly and made us all feel special. Left and arrived at each port right on time with no issues. Nightly shows were enjoyable for the whole family.
