Not Worth It

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: May 09, 2015

Pretty scary to see police trucks riding up and down the streets with mounted machine guns in Mazatlán and Puerto Vallarta.  Rhythms of the night show in Puerto Vallarta is extraordinary and a don't miss.  Mazatlán, three village tour not worth the cost or the time.  Bus does 82 miles and you stop at three tiny villages for about 15 minutes per stop.  Cabo is nice, but not like the Caribbean.  Pharmacies and souvenir shops galore, but nothing worth purchasing.  I can only say, "Been there, done that."  Ship's crew and service were fantastic.  Food was good, but ship is in need of some painting repairs.  Internet service on board was terrible and not worth the price.

Fun cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: May 09, 2015

There were a lot of things to do on the cruise. The punchline comedy was good. Towel folding class was cute. Staff were very friendly. Prices on name brand were actually cheap but they didn't have much selection. They arrived and left on time for all the ports. So overall experience was good. Food were not bad at all at the dining room. The only complain I had on food was the buffet, especially at the Asian stir-fry station. They didn't know how to make different sauces. They tasted the same everyday and was super greasy.

The Most Seven Relaxing Days of Our Lives!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: May 02, 2015

My husband and I greatly enjoyed our seven day cruise to the Mexican Riviera for our one year anniversary. We spent our time aboard the Carnival Miracle, and while there were may activities planned and things to do, we ended up spending most of our time lounging around outside in the Adults Only lounge or relaxing in our room/on our private balcony. The room is spacious enough and the extended balcony (deck five) is really the only way to go. You have plenty of room to stretch your legs and view the beautiful sights. The only gripe for our balcony is that we didn't have lounge chairs but regular chairs.

The food was great: there was 24 hour Pizza and the outside grill (burgers, chicken tenders, hot dogs, etc.) was open almost all day long. The Bacchus dining hall was a delight and everyone there was very polite. We recommend choosing the "dine at your leisure" option because you never know when you might want to eat earlier or later (on port days).

The three ports were special in their own ways. For each we ended up taking a taxi to the nearby beaches. We planned one excursion in Cabo but it ended up getting cancelled due to the weather. Note: our ship port schedule was actually changed. Our original itinerary was Day at Sea, Cabo, Mazatlan, Puerto Vallarta, Day at Sea, Day at Sea, Day at Sea. It was changed to: Day at Sea, Day at Sea, Peuerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, Cabo, Day at Sea. Just remember that this may happen and you may need to change your excursions as a result. If you do it through a third party you can actually use the ships international phones at no additional cost in their guest services department. This was a big help!

We ended up having no excursions due to the course change and weather change but we honestly didn't mind. It was a great, relaxing trip.

Highly recommend, and make sure to have a blast in the on-ship Casino!

Smooth sailing

This was the second time we went with Carnival to this destination. It was really nice weather and smooth sailing the whole way. The staff was courteous and professional.

Great times on the fun ship!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: May 02, 2015

We opted to splurge and get a larger room on this trip and we are really glad we did.  We had VIP check in which was awesome!  That alone was worth the extra money.  The people who took care of our room where outstanding.  We hardly saw them yet our room was spotless all of the time.  The food was really good for the most part.  We always take the opportunity to try new things on the cruises so it is expected to get some things you don't care for.  Our waiters where wonderful, very kind and took great care of us.  The entertainment was not as good as some of our past cruses.  The shows where new maybe that is why it wasn't as good.  The cruise director was so fun.  Probably my favorite out of all of the cruises we have been on.  Mexico was awesome!  I hadn't been in about 15 years and it is so much more modernized since then.  I cant wait to go back.

Budget cruise line lives up to its reputation

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

We did not get sick, our toilets didn't break, and the captain piloted the ship without incident. Having said this, there is more to a memorable cruise vacation than just avoiding catastrophes. We have enjoyed cruise vacations for years and have traveled on several lines. We came on board Carnival with an expectation and were disappointed around every corner. There was a charge for everything; all we expected from a cruise to be included, we were asked to pay for additionally. They allowed smoking in all public places, smoke does not stay in its designated area. They provided "adult"  activities which in some cases were offensive. The shows were groupings of songs, not really shows. There was no non-denominational Sunday service, nor did they even open the chapel for people to gather. Because of the nickle-dime mindset and the lack of respectful and appropriate activities for "all" guests, we will not travel Carnival again, nor can we recommend it.

amazing ship, poor customer service

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

The ship is amazing, and i will be sailing again on this boat. However i was left in port at Mazatlan and the way carnival handled the situation was terrible. Despite my calls with carnival, they did not relay any messages to my wife who was onbaord, and she had no idea of my whereabouts for 3 days. im very upset with carnival for this.

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

Nice ship, friendly staff! The food in the dining room was EXCELLENT. Buffet hours seemed a bit short [but we never went hungry ;) ]. Had a room with a balcony and that was well worth the extra cost. Anjana from Thailand was our room steward- really kind lady!

The MIracle

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

i found the service extremely wonderful.  Everyone was cordial with a warm smile, some even knew our names. Suggy had our ice morning and nite - he knew our schedule and had our beds made when we left and when we returned for the evening.  Now that I'm not drinking as much as I did when i first started traveling I find the Cheers Card a wonderful idea (I recommended that after my first cruise - which was with the Royal)

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.
