December 2014 - 7 Night Mexican Riviera (Los Angeles Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Miracle
We booked a last minute get away over Christmas week to enjoy sunny Mexico. Food and service on the ship was great. Very clean. The onboard entertainment was poor, much worse than average. Bar service was spotty and inconsistent. Asked for a King bed and it took awhile for the steward to set that up. The tender loading/unloading in Cabo was a joke--ship got in at 1:00 pm, we couldn't leave the ship until nearly 3:00 pm and the ship left at 5:00 pm, so Cabo was almost a non-event. Puerto Vallarta was much better since we could come and ago as we pleased for almost 2 full days ashore.
I would recommend this cruise again, even with the inconsistent service, the lack of time ashore in Cabo, and the poor onboard entertainment. The rest of the cruise was good to very good.
Note, the ship is getting a little old and was creaking a lot so it was due for a remodel.
