Carnival Miracle Review

Sail Date: November 21, 2015

Reviewed: 10 months ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Balcony

The ports and Mexico were great, the ship workers were very nice, however the cruise seemed very unorganized and at all times we had extremely long lines to get on and off the ship. Also it would have been nice to know in advance about the change to the gratuity charge. This was my first cruise but I heard from many on the ship that Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, and Princess are better options. I do have to say again, that the staff on the ship were amazingly friendly and accommodating, which made the trip for me.

Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin was nice, Alvin was great and very helpful. Staff is the best part of the cruise line.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Waited 3 hours to get on standing in line, and 2 hours to get off, also on every port it seemed un organized and chaotic.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Long Beach (Los Angeles), California
Get there several hours early or you will be in line for hours standing and waiting.
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Loved Cabo, will go back, just not on the cruise ship. No port for ship so had to take small boats in and back. Took way too long to do and cost you valuable time not in Cabo.
Mazatlan, Mexico
Nice Cathedrals, and city tour was nice but a little long and very tip hungry at every turn.
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Very nice and accommodating.
