Disappointing Cruise

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

We were very disappointed with this cruise.  This is the third time in 3 years we have taken it.  This time we took some friends that usually go on a Princess Cruise and they were extremely disappointed with the cruise.

 

The service in the main dining room was very disappointing.  We never got any refills for our drinks.  The staff seemed rush.  The staff was unfriendly.  The exception was a server we found toward the last of our cruise.  Her name was "Francesca" and she was excellent.  Her support staff was very poor.  The food was just o.k. and such very small portions.  I ordered double on everything.

 

The show we saw was the same ones we saw last year.

 

I got an asthma attach from smoking that was allowed in the disco.  I don't understand why you would allow smoking in a disco where people ate dancing.  Why don't you have a smoking room if you want people to smoke inside the ship?

 

The staff at the spa were very rude.  We had a $50 voucher credit and she said we could not use it for products and after I said we were told we could, she allowed us to.

 

Many of the staff was unfriendly.

 

Its not something that I had experienced before on a Carnival cruise and I have been on many.

 

I am going to have to think about next year if we really want to do Carnival again.  This trip was very disappointing....

Carnival Miracle to PV & Cabo

this was our first cruise and we honestly did not have high expectations going into it.  We travel to Vegas every year and stay in 5 star hotels so I was realistic with the understanding I was not going to get Vegas food and service.  Saying all that the food was better than I expected and the steakhouse was great.  Plenty of entertainment on the ship for everyone.  One area that was way above expectations was the service we received by the staff.

This Thanksgiving cruise was perfect for our extended family. We all had fun together and no one had to cook or do the dishes. We had delicious food, even for vegetarians, and fruity drinks at the Alchemy bar. Those ladies, Elena, Nevena, and Vera are awesome . The Cheers program was worthwhile for the adults in the group.

This was the first cruise for me and my girlfriend. We had been looking forward to the experience for some time. As the cruise day approached, we watched Youtube videos of Carnival Miracle and read up on tips from previous cruise goers. We also read information on the Carnival web site. All of this, gave us a heads up on what to expect.

 

We had an excellent experience throughout the cruise. We arrived early on Saturday, checked our baggage with the ship staff. Then went on a walking tour of the Queen Mary. After boarding Carnival Miracle, we started with the lunch buffet on deck 9 while watching the preparations to depart Long Beach port. Enjoyed the next day of sailing. We booked two shore excursions – one for Cabo San Lucas and one for Puerta Vallarta. Had a great time on both excursions. With a two-day halt in Cabo and a one-day halt in Puerta Vallarta, we had enough time to briefly explore each place. The Cabo land excursion included a catamaran ride to Land’s End and the Arch, which we enjoyed very much. After the two port calls, there were two days of sailing back to Long Beach.

 

Food was excellent on board and staff were great. We attended a couple of days of formal dining in the Bacchus dining room. Other wonderful memories include the 80’s music and the Motown songs nights. We spent a fair amount of time in the Serenity Pool area. Weather was good throughout. All said, many thanks to the Carnival staff. We could not have asked for a better first cruise experience and look forward to more sailing in the future.

Improvement needed to arrive at destination ports on time so passengers can enjoy the town.  The disembark at Cabo was rough. Carnival should have droppped their own tenders so everyone could get off at the scheduled time.

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.
