Weather was wonderful and the cruise was very nice! by sandygirl1102

Carnival did a great job of getting us off the ship but when we go to customs they opened the ADA line to people behind us getting off the ship and with only two agents clearing us it delayed the people that had the earlier flights due to using the ADA line as a regular line. Some people were in jeopardy of missing their flights. I understand it was a new line set up at customs but they need to know what they are doing before implementing something new.

A Fantastic Cruise on the Carnival Miracle by jollyobx

/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

Carnival Miracle was a great ship, plenty to do and plenty of staff to take good care of you. We booked excursions in several ports and loved them all. The booking process was very easy and was what we expected. We are planning to go on Carnival again in April. :) Loved Cruise Director Andy!

Very disappointed with Carnival's quality. Workers, except the officers, are extremely nice! by chanoitwaru

Verified Review

I was very disappointed with the quality of service. The towels in the cabins are old and need to be thrown out, they are yellow and hard. Also, the quality and variety of food in the buffet is very poor. Hardly any fresh fruit, such as strawberries, kiwi. Melons are cheap which is what they served. Also, not forgetting the toilet tissue, you get bruised after wiping. Don't Carnival believe in better quality??? Very dissatisfied cruiser!

Felix II the waiter from Philippines went above and beyond for my 5 year old son. Tedy did as well. Tedy made my son a rabbit out of a napkin. Felix brought my son a chocolate milk every day even when he was eating upstairs with Camp Ocean. My son looked forward to “his guy” coming with his milk everyday. The camp ocean staff was very good with my special needs son! They let him move up into the other room because he did better in there and they let him play his video games longer because that’s what kept him happy. Miss snoopy and miss bumblebee we’re great. The lady from England was very good with my son.

Great cruise by sharonfrank56

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

As I indicated the cruise was great but our travel agent left a lot to be desired. I purchased this cruise based on a bonus that was offered. Someone decided`that there was no bonus after the fact. The agent never called to let me know so maybe i could change my mind and get a refund nor did she return any of my numerous phone calls. A quality company would have given me the bonus since the purchase was made while the bonus was posted. Will not use this company again!

Great first cruise for my two grandsons by carolz37

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

The ship needs to be updated and I understand that is going to happen next year. That being said, it was perfectly suitable for our purposes - a first cruise and first time out of the county for my 10 and 12-year old grandsons, their mother and me. Food in the Bacchus dining room was excellent, as was the service from the staff. Food in the Lido buffet offered a good variety of okay food. Staff in this area was also excellent at keeping the area clean with so many people using it. Embarkation was tedious. Our appointment time was between 1130am and noon with only one group before us (not counting all the VIP and priority people). People were still getting off the ship at 1130am so nearly everyone ready to board had to wait until long after noon. Then only the Lido buffet had food for all 2600 people on board which caused very long lines and limited seating. Luggage didn't arrive at our cabin until well after 5pm and even then we finally retrieved it ourselves from the pile of luggage near the elevators. Once we got embarkation out of the way we had a pleasant cruise for the most part. Food in the Bacchus dining room was excellent, as was the service from all the staff. The "table entertainer" magician was amazing - he needs to be offered a show on stage in the theater! As usual on a cruise the food staff and cabin stewards were incredibly friendly, efficient and helpful. Once we had to deal with staff further up the pay scale we sometimes ran into crabby and even surly people. Surprisingly the guest services staff were sometimes the least pleasant. I realize they deal with people all day long but that's their job and, presumably, they are trained to deal with us customers. I did not book any shore excursions through the cruise line. Instead I relied on Trip Advisor reviews to choose my tours which cost less and were excellent in each case. Debarkation was a breeze. It's been a while since I cruise and I was pleasantly surprised to learn that we had the option to take our own luggage off the ship with us, which put us in the first group to leave the ship. The port of Tampa does not require cruise passengers to fill out customs forms, just to orally declare anything of note. This contributed to the ease of getting off the ship and on to the airport. We signed the 10 and 12 year old grandsons up for the kids' programs but they both lost interest in their respective programs after two or three days. The programs seemed too immature for the age groups. The 10 year old found a group of other kids and they hung around with each other and found their own entertainment.

Great Trip! by banes311p

Great Cruise! Would recommend to anybody. The ports were great. The following crew members were great: Samantha, Rudolph and Lubicia-Hostesses and Jere in Bachias dining, Also, the drink server who always rolled his tongue saying drrrriiinks made our dining experience wonderful each day. Our stateroom steward Milagres was a lifesaver.

Great Time Aboard Carnival Miracle by nysunshine25

Verified Review

It was a great cruise, we had perfect weather and smooth sailing. Passengers on the ship were very nice, shows were good and the adult comdey nights were very funny. I like the casino, but I wish that they did not allow smoking, it is really disgusting.

A value for the price and the ship staff and entertainment is excellent. It was the dining room experience that I was unhappy with. The food was fair and they should implement a "casual dress" code. People were just plain ole sloppy and inappropriate for the formal dining room. Ass's hanging our of daisy dukes men in urban style .. ball caps flip flops all good for the buffet but I like a little more class in the evening in the dining room.

Overall good by BuffyM

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Good overall! Favorites were Cozumel and Cayman. Casino was fun and activities are always fun. Liked that there were multiple pools and Serenity Deck for adults. Still hate the way the casino smells of cigarettes and you have to walk through the smoke constantly because the casino is right in the middle of things. It makes me want to not gamble. Loved Andy our cruise director and his sense of humor! The only real issue I had was the disembarkation. It was absolutely terrible. I’ve cruises Carnival five times now and have never had an experience like that one. They had us wait OUTSIDE, with the Florida sun beating down on us, for over an hour. They said there was congestion and apologized. But seriously? An hour?? Why couldn’t we just line up inside like we’ve done in every other cruise I’ve been on? Or at least have fans on the deck where people stand and water available. It was miserable. And the gentleman in front of us in line was in a wheelchair. He kept having to adjust his luggage and his chair with his luggage every time we moved. It was just terrible. But that was my only major complaint of the trip. So all in all it was fun and beautiful!

We had some issues some of which I have already discussed. But they had issues with the sauna and steam room being out of order, why did the pools have to be closed while in port.

Great ports, average food & entertainment wad okay by cabo67

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Staff was friendly but certainly didn't go above and beyond. Food was mediocre, needed more variety & wasn't the greatest quality. The "fancy" dinners where the food was supposedly "made to order" knew it wasn't & many times cold or just warm by the time they brought it to you. Buffet lines moved very slow & definitely didn't have enough staff to keep things moving for the amount of people on board the ship. Days at the pool were very hard to find chairs and the chairs that you did find were very cramped & close together. We paid for the bubbles package which allows you to get soda and a few other things, no bottled water you can only get soda at certain bars, not much of a variety not worth it... We had to pay for the internet package just so I could check my banking and email that was the biggest scam the internet either never worked or it was the slowest and worst connection I've ever experienced. The ports were beautiful and the excursions were great! Overall we had a good time but the value for what you got was not good

Smaller ship, but Big on fun! by Cruiser18429684

We had lots of fun on our snorkeling excursion in Cozumel and our visit to Stingray City in Grand Cayman. We highly recommend Roatan/Mahogany Bay... that was a great day at the beach that does not require any excursion or added expense. Talk about a huge bonus!

restful, exciting and full of whatever we were looking for by leighsa01

Verified Review

Love this cruise. Carnival and their staff are top notch. Always friendly and accommodating. The ship is very clean and the service is fabulous. We did find that we missed not having a pool that you could actually swim in or at least tread water. They do have an adult pool which is awesome however, it's more of a cooler hot tub with people packed in and standing around drinking. While that was fun, the water was so murky that we were a little grossed out to be in it. Overall though, we loved the cruise and would take this one again.
