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.

Alask Cruise

Was disappointed to not get to Ketchikan, but did enjoy the rest of the cruise. Our excursions were fun, entertaining and pretty awesome. Would have loved to have seen a bear though! Director hilarious. Dinning staff excellent. Cabin steward awesome. Our needs were met often before we even asked.

Thanks for a great trip!

Hawaiian Cruise via Carnival Miracle Stateroom 1217

Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Sep 18, 2014

The Southbound cruise from Vancouver, B.C. to Long Beach, CA with Port calls in Kauai, Maui, Honolulu, Kona and Hilo Hawaii  on Carnival Miracle was to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary and my Birthday. We were impressed by the friendly, efficient crew, the wonderful dancers and singers and outstanding orchestra who never failed to give us great entertainment every night and lived up to the slogan that Carnival is "The Fun Ship". We appreciated the high security when returning to the ship after visiting ports. Each and every member of the crew and management made us feel like we were very special.

Stateroom 1217 is an outside room, mid ship on the starboard side on Deck 1, The Riviera deck. It is very convenient to the stairs and elevators. Its location was recommended by our travel agent as being a good choice for someone who has a tendency toward motion sickness. I did not need any of the motion sickness medications I brought with me even though there were some pretty good swells during our voyage. I enjoyed the view from the large rectangular picture window and the room was very insulated against noise & quiet. So quiet that we had to open the hallway door to hear announcements! Lots of storage in 3 closets with adjustable shelves or clothes rods that could be configured many ways depending on whether clothes were to be hung or folded. The showerhead is on an adjustable rod or can be hand held. Fabric shower curtain OK but I would prefer a shower enclosure door. There is only one plug outlet  in the bedroom and will not accept more than one plug. We had to bring an extension cord to hook up medical equipment.

The décor of the main dining room and the theater a Baccus theme and a Phantom of the Opera theme, a bit gaudy. The Buffet area had many food stations, and great variety of choices. Good arrangement of seating, some booths, some tables, and well placed for the space available. We chose "Your Time Dining" which allowed us the freedom to eat dinner anytime from 5:15pm to 9pm.  It worked very well for us. We were impressed with Penelope, the charming Hostess at the entrance of Your Time dining room on Deck 3. She always greeted us by name without us having to show our sea pass. Everyone of the crew  made us feel very welcome. We were also impressed by how quickly we embarked at Vancouver, B.C. Our friends dropped us off at Canada Place and we were on the Carnival Miracle within 30 minutes or less!

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
