Review Summary

Mexican Riviera itinerary was good-- Cabo San Lucas,Mazatlan


Puerto Vallarta.  Loved all the various bars on the 

ship.  It's time for refurbishment of Miracle's cabins

and dining room furnishings. Overall cleanliness and

service was good. Must ask for housecoat use; no evening 

chocolate; cabin serviced once daily (steward is always 

available however ); mini-bar is not stocked (great for us

because we had entire use of fridge and didn't have

to worry about mini-fridge charges); entertainment was 

good; cruise director was not the best-some in our group felt 

that not enough  creativity was spent on getting the

singles group together; Serenity was marvelous!; food

was respectable-omelette station was great; no shushi

bar;  lots of action in the casino; perfume selection on the ship was extremely 

limited; liquor selection was average; bedding was very 

comfortable; inside cabin with obstructed view is a 

great value!; embarcation was painless; disembarking took forever due to

luggage slowdown.  I'm guessing staff has thinned 

on all ships so Carnival can staff the mega ships

without hiring too many additional people. 

Overall-good cruise.
