Alask Cruise

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

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!

Great experience

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

We had a great time on this cruise! The Tracy Arm Fjord day was amazing. The ship had blankets to use on the decks and were serving warm beverages that 'hit the spot'. We did not get to see Ketchikan due to mechanical issues on the boat (which we knew in advance) but the other ports (Skagway, Juneau, and Victoria) were beautiful! We did excursions in Skagway (train ride through mountains, salmon bake, 'gold mining', and tour of Red Onion Saloon and brothel) and Juneau (whale watching and Mendenhall Glacier tour) and both were well worth the money! The tour guides were fun and informational. This was our second Carnival Cruise and the service both times was exceptional. We are looking forward to our next cruise in the Caribbean in January 2015 :)

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.

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
