Fulfilled Alaska bucket list

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Jul 08, 2014

Our Alaska cruise was something my husband and I always wanted to do. We were not disappointed. This was our Platinum cruise with Carnival. Check in went so smooth, went right to the cabin and emptied our carry on bags an alas our luggage came while we were there. Fastest ever. Our cabin steward Carlos was great so attentive and friendly. The wait staff were as frequently and anticipated what we wanted. 

The Alaskan scenery was simply gorgeous. We went on the Tracy Arm excursion which I recommend to all, you venture off in a smaller boat to get closer to the glaciers and waterfalls. You stop there for awhile to get photos. We saw calfing of the glaciers which was amazing.. Skagway was a quaint town we did a salmon bake but I wished we did a more exploration excursion, maybe next time. Juneau we went on a whale watch and rainforest walk to Mendenhall Glacier. Even though the day wasn't nice we had an awesome time. We saw a lot of whales during a bottle feeding where they are all together. Saw Sea lions also. Whale watching was great I would do that again with no doubt.

We love Carnival and will keep sailing with them. We have met lot of people we keep in touch with from all over. The crew are all friendly and call you by name which I like it makes you feel special. I do recommend the Alaska cruise it is a must see.

Horrible Carnival

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Jul 01, 2014

Carnival Cruise is one of the most horrible cruise line to Alaska that I had an unfortunate first time experience.  First, Carnival Cruise was to Alaska with ports call Skagway, Juneau, Ketchikan and Victoria.  Then a few weeks later, Carnival sent an email stating that their Miracle Ship cannot go to Ketchikan, therefore, Carnival gave me an email for 25% off for future cruise.  At the board of the ship, Carnival has one of this ads that if I check with their sale prep when I am first day at sea and book future cruise, Carnival will give me a good price for future cruise.  I found the East Bahama cruise and booked the cruise with their good price and when I gave the 25% letter, the sale rep would not honor it. The guest service name Felicia was a rude person.  Her attitude was cold and mean when I asked about the custom form.  The cook argued with the guests regarding not enough food for the guests to eat after the came back from shore excursions.  The food menu was the same day after day for the past 7 days on board.  It was plain, old, stale and not at all nutritious and inviting.

Pros:

2 great ports with amazing locals and safe environment.

Cruise staff was perfect

Decent food

clean rooms (balcony was amazing)

ship itself was clean, not tacky, and did not smell or feel old

nice gym

club was fun

 

Cons: There was no solid Poolside DJ. Poolside was boring and mellow.  (unlike other carnival ships)

More than what was expected!!!!

Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Aug 19, 2014

This was my second cruise with Carnival and it was better than what I was expected.   Going to Alaska was a bucket list item of mine and I am happy to say that I was not disappointed.  We booked several excursions without any difficulty and was pleased with each result.  Whales, seal lions, bald eagles, salmon, and a bear were some of the highlights surrounded by breathtaking scenery.  The crew, the shows, and the meal service were all very professional  and were very driven to spoil its guests.  I will use Carnival again on the next cruise.

if you didn't have a good time it's your own fault

Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Aug 19, 2014

this was our second alaskan cruise and fifth cruise with carnival.  We knew early that Ketchikan was dropped due to propulsion problems, but, this meant more time in the other ports.  weather was excellent, clear blue skies temps in the high 50's.  single most important advice i can offer is spend the extra money and get a balcony.  our cabin steward Siswadi was excellent and always available.  we were a group of nine and all chose your time dining.  food in the main dining room was good to very good, menu options meant carnivores to vegetarians were all happy.  the dining room staff :Beata, Marlena, Joel, and Rommel were excellent.  self serve food on the lido deck was good and always a wide variety, pizza, chinese, burgers, etc.  24 hour self serve froyo and ice cream.  embarkation  was the most pain free we have ever encountered, quite different from the stormtroopers used at port canaveral.   carnival now offers express debarkation $20 per person and you get your boarding passes the last nite as well as your bags automatically checked thru to your final destination.   bring binoculars, and plenty of batteries for your cameras.    enjoy

Popular 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.

this ship has wonderful adult serenity area, which also includes an adult only pool. However spots fill up quickly especially on a nice day but all in all a lovely place to spend the day
