Mexico cruise rating

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

I have always heard carnival was a party cruise and so I have always shied away from cruise lone because I prefer an upscale line.  I was disappointed in cruise in that it there was to many children on cruise (300 plus including some infants) food was okay, same stuff everyday for breakfast and lunch, dinners were so so. Cabin Staff was very good, but had other people complain never even saw there cabin people and we had good dining staff but forget staff for breakfast at sit down area. Couldn't get coffee unless we went looking for help, but they stood around visiting amongst themselves. Food cold or not cooked but couldn't tell anyone because they never came to check on you, so resorted to eating food on lido deck, quality about the same but didn't have to wait.  Didn't enjoy Selection of activities mostly because overrun with kids not being supervised or families taking up area to play with kids.  Will stick to Royal and Holland Cruise line.  Have been over 15 cruises and this one was not worth my time.  Great for families and younger generation but I like to enjoy music, bands dancing and being able to sit by pool area without being splashed on, run over by kids running. Adult area over crowded because others felt the same.

relaxing

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Nov 22, 2014

the ship, room,  most staff (we had a couple of waiters in the main dinning room that acted like they were doing us a favor), loved the dinning experience except for the grapes all over the dinning room. The Room was good. mattress a little hard. the balcony was great size but the condition of it was lacking. The ports were ok except Puerto Vallarta. Puerto Vallarta was the best port,  mostly because we didn't get harassed by vendors.

7th cruise . Definitely the worse

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Nov 22, 2014

There are several problems with the ship Miracle. First of all very poorly maintained.  Several broken things in the cabin requiring repairs. Overall ship poorly planed. Kids Camp located at. Front end of ship if there is a line to get in it stretches in the hall ways. Dining room partially on the propeller we were vibrating through entire meal ( 2nd deck.) in general crew members very inpatient in answering questions on directions. Although most of the problems were addressed promptly it was always one problem after another. Quality of food and freshness was very poor, with the exception of the Pizza Bar which was still outstanding.  Cruise director very low in energy seldom came on intercom to update events, did not feel that any of the crew members hearts were into what they were doing. Poor management of crew reflected in lack of enthusiasm on their behalf . Poor choice overall.

 We enjoyed everything from food, amenities to entertainment.  Staff are great and ship environment is good. Compared to other cruises that we have taken, this one is very relaxing and enjoyable.

Mediocre Miracle

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

The ship is very clean.  The dining room staff & cabin steward were great! This was our fifth time sailing with Carnival and last.  Quality of buffet food was poor.  They have all these "additional fees" now to get your $$ however they can.  Cruise Director was great.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Oct 04, 2014

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)

This was a very enjoyable cruise.  Very relaxing.  Had a room at the back of the ship and loved it.  Lots of closet and shelf space.  All the staff was very friendly.  Would recommend this cruise. - Marlene

Alaska Cruise - 8days

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Miracle | Sail Date: Aug 05, 2014

Like the cruise for the entire package. It was a resort on water.

Very friendly staff,crew.

Very well organized shore excursions

food - excellent

Bar- great

Excursions - dream

Only dislike was the co-ordiantion between camp and adult activities. Very difficult when camp is closed.

My son did not particularly like camp since he had less activities and older children were included.

He enjoys school and definitely is not comparable but Camp could have been better. I would suggest taking more costs but making it more fun. It was like a play care where you leave them and they play by them selves.

But overall we took him wherever we went and he did enjoy them...hence no regrets.

 

to sum it up a perfect vacation, perfect cruiseline and the cruise director....was funny, funny ,funny.

Thanks to Meredith for helping me with the booking

 

Thanks

Satyen

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.

Do NOT buy shore excursions on the ship. Wait till you get off and negotiate with the vendors. about 3/4ths off of the price
