The Miracle 7 day cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Mar 29, 2014


Overall the cruise was pretty good.  We were very diappointed in thr pools and there was only one slide that was very out of the way and a long way to get to.  I have an eleven yr.old and an eight yr. old and they went down the slide twice.  They said the slide was difficult to get down because it was not slippery...they would literly get stuck and had to move around to get going again and there wasn't even didn't even land in a pool it was just a wet like mats.  The kids Carnival room, which was the "babysitting" room so parents could have some alone time, which was very nice and my kids fairly enjoyed it.

It was fun and their was a lot to do, but you really have to plan your day out or you will miss out on a lot.

Overall, we were disappointed for our chilren.  I think this ship was more geared for adults and it seemed to be an older ship.  I would ask more questions before cruising again

Amazing!!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Mar 29, 2014


This was our very first cruise so we weren't completely sure what to expect.  Having said that, the experience was so far above anything we anticipated or envisioned that we felt like royalty. From the housekeeping staff to the food services staff, everyone gave 110%. The ship was elegant, the activities plenteous and the fun over the top.  We will definitely be cruising again.  A great way to vacation...sorry we waited so long to do it.  Thanks for a great vacation!

Feb Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Feb 02, 2014


Probably would chose a warmer month to go on a cruise next time. Also would book shore trips through the cruise line rather than, outside as the passengers that booked on the ship got to go to the head of the line, therefore, we missed an expensive tour on shore.

A Trip For The Kids

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Feb 02, 2014


We purchased this cruise for our son and his family as a Christmas gift.  We selected an aft facing balcony for us and my son had a port balcony.  This was our tenth Carnival cruise and the third on a Spirit-class ship. Although not the largest of the Carnival ships, the Spirit-class ships are my favorite Carnival ships.

 

We have platinum cruise privileges with Carnival, so enjoyed the convenience of priority embarkation, debarkation and priority tendering in Cabo San Lucas.  There are several other platinum perks we did not use. 

 

Carnival staterooms are fairly standard and similarly decorated for almost all Carnival ships, so we knew what to expect for accommodations.  We selected the aft balcony because it was extended.  However, it did have it's drawbacks.  It was on deck eight just below the adult pool area, so we did hear chair scraping and activity above us during the day.  There was no cover over the balcony.  The stern of the ship is cantilevered making it possible for people standing on the deck above to partially see onto our balcony.  It also was a bit uncomfortable in full sun.  Being on the stern of the ship also meant more vibration and movement, which I didn't mind at all but it did bother the wife, who is more prone to motion sickness.  Overall, the extended, aft balcony was not worth the additional cost and we wished we had selected a midship port or starboard balcony.

 

Our room steward was excellent and kept our room spotless and orderly.  Every night he had a different towel character on our bed.  Our granddaughter loved to come to our room to see what we got and tell us about the towel characters in her room.

 

Carnival does a fairly good job of maintaining smoke-free areas on this ship.  It was easy to avoid the areas where smoking was allowed.  The only problem encountered with smoking, was on our balcony.  We were unfortunate to have smokers on both sides of as well as below.  This ship did not allow smoking in the staterooms but did on the balconies.  The lady in the stateroom port of us was quite prompt (every 45 minutes) smoking on her balcony when not out about the ship and, even though sound insulation between rooms was adequate we often heard this lady strenuously coughing in her cabin many times, both day and night.  My wife is an asthmatic and was unable to enjoy the balcony much of the cruise.

 

We were seated in a booth for four adults in the Bacchus Dining room (table 204), even though there were five of us, with our five year old granddaughter. A chair was placed at the end of the table, making the table a little congested but acceptable..  We must have also been directly under an air conditioning fan, as we were constantly feeling cold air blowing over us, consequently, we always dressed warm for dinner.  Our waiter and assistant waiter took very good care of us and were attentive and adept at anticipating our desires.  

 

Having been on nearly 70 cruises with various cruise companies, cruise line food really no longer offers us much of a surprise.  Overall, the food quality and quantity were good.  I like soups but found the soup selections somewhat lacking.  My wife loves Carnival's chocolate melting cake and she was not disappointed.  The food service was excellent as was the main dining room food presentation.  We enjoyed the sea day brunches in the main dining room.

 

We didn't eat often at the buffet on deck nine.  The food here was adequate and plentiful.  I liked the omelets, Bistro sandwiches and the hot freshly made pizza.  I also loved the 24 hour soft serve ice cream and yogurt.  My wife was concerned there were not enough hand sanitizers available near the buffet-type dining areas. Gratis beverages included tea (iced/hot), coffee, tap water and lemonade.

 

I'm a Dr. Pepper drinker and few, if any, cruise ships offer Dr. Pepper, so I always bring my own supply on board.  However, on the third night of this cruise, I discovered Mr. Pibb was offered, which, for me, is a suitable substitute for Dr. Pepper.  Had I have known this at the beginning of the cruise, I would have purchased a beverage card and forgot about bringing my own soda supply with me.

 

My wife's and my perceptions are that Carnival encourages the interests of younger adults, providing a good children's program that allows the parents a break to enjoy the ship's entertainment.  As for us, we like a nice break where we can be pampered and catered to for a few days.  So we spend a lot of quiet time by ourselves on cruises.  We were disappointed we were unable to use our balcony more but we did find many quiet spots on the ship where we could read and spend time together.  Our son and his wife enjoyed the shipboard entertainment and parties and our granddaughter had a good time at Camp Carnival.

 

As for excursions in port, I seldom buy ship's tours.  I purchased a zip line outing for my son and his wife from the internet at a much cheaper price than offered from the ship's tours.  They also bartered a glass bottom boat tour from a vender on shore and the thoroughly enjoyed both excursions.

 

The crew on the Miracle were courteous, friendly and helpful.  Many times we heard them welcoming us back with Carnival.  Our overall experience was enjoyable and I would gladly cruise with Carnival again.

my carnival experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Feb 02, 2014


This was our honeymoon after recently getting married.  Our travel agent told us we had $80 credit at the bar.  We found out we did not after arriving on the ship.  Service was average.  I heard of other couples getting a bottle of champagne for anniversarys and birthdays... and since it was 3 days after my birthday we went to guest services and asked if they did anything special for birthdays or honeymoon... they said no but congradulations... it could have been any other day of the week, nothing special.... I have been on more than 10 cruises... usually for special events... on carnival there was not anything special...  just another day of the week to them...we booked a tour in cabo san lucus... after dinner when we got to our room, after the late dinner even though we booked early they gave us late til I arranged for it to be changed... we got a note saying they they cancelled it due to lack of interest and it was too late for us to book something else that night.  We went in to cabo and didn't take a tour.  When we got back I didnt feel very well so we went to bed early after dinner.  We woke early to take our horseback riding tour in puerto vallarta... since we were not using our phones and had no way of knowing the time we watched the channel with the boat's position and time... it was 825am and we were deciding what to do for an hour since our tour was at 930... all of a sudden the time changed to 930am when we thought it was 830am... we rushed past all the pictures to try to catch our tour...We missed our tour... When I booked another tour for the afternoon at guest services I said why did they not tell us of the time change... This time change was nowhere that we saw... they said it was in the daily program and there were signs posted... I did not see any signs posted of course I did go to bed earlier than usual.. and I read the program every day in its entirety and circle what I do for the day and it was not there... I still have a copy... I felt insulted... I obviously would not miss our tour if I knew of a time change... they did not even tell me when I booked the tour.... that would have been a good time to mention a time change... when the clocks changed back it made everything close an hour earlier... so when I went for late night entertainment and the clocks did not return to the right time til midnight that night ... the ship considered it 1am anyway and closed late night entertainment early....We played bingo every chance we got... they told us a package was $30 dollars... it wasnt til the last 2 games we didnt find out we could just get cards for $20... they squeezed another $10 out of us each game because we didnt know and gave us pull tabs... The pull tabs did have a raffle... we put the pull tabs in for the drawing... since we were in the same cabin and were married we figured we would share everything... When we got on the ship we decided to use 2 credit cards.. one in each of our name so we could keep track... We dont have a lot of money and really wanted this to be a nice honeymoon but we wanted to keep our charges to what we could afford... I can afford a bit more than my husband... We charged drinks.. sometimes he got mine and sometimes I got his... His name got pulled for the pull tab drawing... he had only $46 in drinks on his charges and I had about $80... When I inquired why if we were in the same room and we were married and did everything together ... why could they not credit mine too..since I bought half his drinks....I was told at guest services that I would have to go ask the casino manager... I was told that it was only the person with the name on the drawing... I had written his name myself...the casino manager told us the same thing and  that they had a person buying all the drinks for a few rooms before and they covered that... that doesnt help me...I said can they at least get us a bottle of champagne like they gave everyone in the newlywed game or the other games... they told me they could not do that... you think the ship could at least give us some champagne for our honeymoon or birthday ... or even the drawing... I have traveled with celebrity, princess, holland america... and this is indeed the cheapest cruise line I have been on and it showed...  A simple bottle of cheap champagne would have appeased me and they just couldnt do it anywhere... I have worked in the hospitality bussiness for over 20 years... we are taught to empower ourselves to make the customer happy... I understand you can not give a bottle of champagne to everyone who comes on the ship but if you make special times special, you will get better reviews and a better chance of return... We had a nice time... but I probably will go back to cruising with holland america... it is worth the extra few hundred dollars to not get cheaped out...

Things to Fix

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Jan 18, 2014


I loved the cruise and this was my sixth one with Carnival but some things really upset myself and my husband this time.  First we had requested early dinner and had it and it was confirmed months before we left for Hawaii, then about a month before we got notice it was not confirmed anymore and once we checked in we had LATE dinner all at once.  This was bad enough but we were put at table 118 which is in the back to the right by the kitchen door, come on are you kidding us.  We were not part of the fun in the dining room at all.  All dancing done by our waiters/head waiter where done by our table but the total fun was in the main seating area.  WE were not happy about this table but we did receive good service from our waiter and head waiter.  We were a table for six with just the two of us at the table, talk about toss us anyplace you sure did it.  Then to top it off while talking to others on the ship at lunch one day we were told they had late dinner and requested early and a month before they got their dinner changed to early, yup we were not happy campers over this change to our time.

 

ok, second big big problem with this cruise is it was mainly older people and yes we are 65 and older but i'm talking a lot older then us.  They seem to th

ink once they sit on the Lido deck for breakfast at 8 this is their table till time for the 2 p.m. naps.  They sit and eat then spread out cards, games or just sit and read and to bad for those of us who have walked around the Lido deck six time or more looking for a place to sit and eat also.  If you ask if they would share a table for four or six they tell you no they are involved in their card games.  We truly believe this could be avoided if someone in charge not the waiters there or bus boys but one in a white uniform came around and said between the hours of 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. the Lido deck is for those who are eating.  You have beautiful areas set up on the 2nd and 3rd deck for games, cards and reading and just plain relaxing.  This is where we would go and do all our reading we never took up a hugh table during the main eating hours.

 

Perhaps this will give you a few ideas of how to fix things before we cruise again.

Great relaxing way to have a holiday !

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Dec 29, 2013


The Miracle is like a little Hobbit ship on design , could not quite figure it out, not that it mattered , the food was good , a meal at Nick and Norah steak house is a real must 

truly out of this world food. The 24 hr offerings of food a nice touch but rather dangerous :-)

We were not that interested in the port stops , Cabo would be good for water activities and PuertaV a nice town with cute water front stores and places to eat . 

The service on the ship was outstanding could not fault them, staff amazing ! I will do this trip again ! We had priority booking due to our cabin, if you do not have a cabin offering this , i would  suggest you pay the small fee to get this boarding as the line 

looked so long, and we were told there are only a few of these , so do this quickly , and have a great trip :-)

fabulous meal at Nick and Norah  steak house !

15 Night Hawaii

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Dec 07, 2013


I would recommend this cruise.  Nice, clean ship and the staff was friendly and helpful.  The food on board was okay.  A lot of variety on the buffett line but the same over-and-over for breakfast.  They need more late night food options too.  The dining room staff was very attentive to dietary restrictions.  The food was pretty good in the dining room.  The shows on board were very, very good.  Some of the best I have seen on a cruise ship and the comedians were a lot of fun!

 

Overall, for the value and price paid, very reasonable.  This trip is worth taking.

Tips for Carnival Miracle

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.

I liked the Comedy on the ship at the Punchliner Shows :)

Meal time was fun. For breakfast we did the Lido deck, for Lunch we did Lido deck and for dinner we did the dining room. Plus you must try the steak house, wow

Get a cabin in the middel of the ship if possible. It's a long way from the bow to the stern. The liedo deck was an wxcellent choice for breakfast,anything you wanted from pastries to omletes made to order & everything in between, I recommend the dining room for evening dining, why not pamper your s

ENJOYED THE ADULTS ONLY AREA

Get a stateroom with a balcony. Alaska is so beautiful you don't want to miss many of the viewing opportunities!

Swimming pool in the covered deck is good. I was told to use the Bachus dining room during day time if you have special food needs. But that room is open only from 11:30 to 1:30PM and it is very crowded.

The buffets were fantastic..many selections available

Do not bother with ship to shore excursions. You can walk the entire 10 block Scagway area, take a local shuttle to Mendenhall glacier and see the lumberjack show in Ketchican from the cruise ship.

go when your young

Definitely bring some more formal attire for the cruise elegant nights. DEFINITELY TRY THE STEAKHOUSE! WELL WORTH IT!!

Ask a lot of questions and don't book a special deal because if u may have to change something or change ur mind, u won't be able to change anything and u will only get cruise credit, no money back! Wait until a month or less to book ur trip, then u won't have to buy the insurance, price may b lower

When getting pizza, ask for extra cheese and pepperoni!

Go to the restaurant for wonderful breakfasts

The seaday brunches in the Bacchus dining room were much better than the buffet.

we wanted to sit with other people but were put at a table alone.. I even mentioned it to the matre d... the service was average... I always drink a lot of water and it was difficult to get my water refilled.. I am used to having a party on the deck when we shove off.. excursions is in my comments

Book your excursions while on board the ship as we missed an on shore whale watching tour because the people that booked onboard got head of the line, plus they had the tour buses waiting for the them dock side, whereas we had to walk several blocks to catch our tour, and again missed it.

for all the family , this trip is great , for couple's ,it's a good place to talk to new people , you learn and exchange ideas. and just enjoy the trip.

Clean, crew were friendly, lots to do, captain had a message every day at noon to keep us up to date
