Don't bother by rxlivnwel

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Miracle

This was the worst cruise that I have been on. Few activities, little time in Cabo, really bad food, limited entertainment. It was very inexpensive, but I could have flown to Cabo and stayed at a nice resort for the same price. I also did not receive any service or stated offers from , and will not use them again.

Great staff and entertainment. It would have been better if the smoking areas were more isolated.

Great Spa, terrible port/excursions by mikkey1101

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Miracle / Destination: Mexico

We had a nice time BUT Carnival has to 1. Update their cabins for tech. TVs are too small, channels too limited, and there is one plug and no USB charging ports. 2. Stop canceling excursions 3. Find better ports! I would have preferred staying overnight in Catalina than going on to Ensenada. Ensenada is a dead town with big problems, closed beaches, and questionable safety.

Alaskan cruise by lesliewarner671

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Carnival Miracle / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

Loved the cruise, the ship not so much. Alaska was amazing, we enjoyed panning for gold and eating fresh salmon. We will definitely do this one again.

Ordinary by roman98033

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Miracle / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

The crew was solid, dining experience great, buffets mediocre, the ship noticeably used. We would consider another Carnival cruise but on a newer ship .

Wonderful itinerary, ship not so much by ullamist

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Miracle / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

This ship is generally a bargain compared to other cruise lines. The positives are many more activities and entertainment to do than on other lines and definitely more of a "fun" atmosphere. The negatives include a lower quality of food and a ship that needs to be updated.

Hawaii from San Diego by rgafia3242

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Miracle / Destination: Hawaii

Cruised with family. Like the size of this ship. Easy to get around. Not many shops on board. Heard they are adding a couple of Restaurants with the update. That will be a plus. Maybe Guy Fierro?

Hawaii Journey Cruise by bobjulie852020

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Miracle / Destination: Hawaii

This was our second time for this 15 day cruise. We enjoy the many sea days. We met some great people and even though the food was overall not very good, we had a great trip and would definitely do it again

Great cruise! Crew was exceptional by maddie72020

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Carnival Miracle / Destination: Mexico

Great cruise! Food was delicious. Crew was friendly helpful. Cabin including the whole ship was clean. It could do with a little makeover otherwise it was an excellent deal for your money. Thank you to all the dining crew cooks snd all. They took special care and were very cautious in dealing with my sons food allergies. Will definitely go back. It was better than other big ship cruises we have been to because it was affordable but was clean with great food.

The worst and we've been on over 30 by jwellman

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Miracle / Destination: Mexico

Here's a copy of the letter we wrote to John Heald Hi John, My husband and I just returned on 1/12/2020 from a 6 day cruise on the miracle. It was our 20th Carnival cruise. We previously traveled twice with you as our cruise director in Europe and had the best memories. This cruise, however, was the worst. Fortunately for us, Mother Nature was extremely kind and gave us perfect weather. My husband has Parkinson’s and is also going through chemo for cancer. We thought this might be a nice get-away since it was so close. He uses a wheelchair most of the time and I have limited mobility. The most helpful “staff” we encountered was the people helping with the tenders in Cabo San Lucas, which I can only assume were actually the locals. The staff on board didn’t seem to know what they were even doing. It felt like it was a training boat. When on the Lido deck I had to balance a plate on my husband’s lap for us to share. The waiters in the main dining room were doing the best they could. There was no time to converse because they were running around the whole time. They instantly knew our names and had a genuine smile and politeness the entire cruise but it was like dining with robots. The room steward couldn’t be found. We were contemplating removing the tip for the service, but chose not to. As I noted earlier, my husband uses a wheelchair and with the cancer sleeps a lot. The room wasn’t made up at least half of the time. We had our meals at the same time each day. The room wasn’t clean. I did more cleaning then the staff did. I took him up to the top deck the afternoon of the cocktail reception and when we returned to go to dinner, the invitation was on our bed and we had missed it. We never received the chocolate strawberries and the ‘gift’ of hangtags was a joke. As you know, everyone compares what they paid and we paid at least as much or more than other passengers and got the worst, filthiest balcony that we have ever had. I don’t know if this is typical to what is happening on all the Carnival cruises, but I definitely would not recommend it to friends. This is the first time we have had to complain. I contemplated writing this to you, but I can’t imagine that this is the treatment your guest should receive. I definitely don’t believe that any handicapped people should feel the way we were treated is acceptable and being our 20th cruise with you, I certainly did not expect this trip to be this way. Judy

Relax on the FUN side of Trump's wall - Cabo San Lucas by LGTR

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Carnival Miracle / Destination: Mexico

This was our fourth cruise and second with Carnival. We love the idea of relaxing on the ship, going to bed and waking at a new location. To be able to explore and return to your stateroom for a fantastic meal, live shows, going to bed to wake-up in a new destination. The overall savings are fantastic! This is definitely not our last cruise.

Lots of fun with a few snags by gppuddinpie

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Carnival Miracle / Destination: Mexico

We had so much fun in this cruise and really loved it. We did not love Ensenada. I’ve been on over 10 cruises and never could understand why cruises stop there. If you do stop there, go to la bufadora and then get back on the ship. It’s truly not worth the stop. The food was the biggest bummer on this ship. Buffets were not good, except for the lido grill. Ice cream machines were very frequently out of ice cream and 3/4 hot chocolate machines broke down (the last day they finally added packets for you to mix in yourself, though). The waiters in the main dining room seemed maxed out - no matter what time we went. They had no assistant waiters. Main dining was a good 2 - 2.5 hour experience and was hard to get a drink or refill. They seemed unhappy and often got our orders wrong and then took another 1/2 hour to get it right. Sometimes half our table would have their meals and it would take 25 minutes for the rest of the table to get theirs. Our kids hated going there, so often we would take them to the lido grill to eat, then they could go to the kids club or hang out in the room while we ate. That food also wasn’t amazing (except for the filet Mignon) and was often lukewarm. Entertainment was pretty good! We enjoyed the nightly shows and the comedians. I appreciated the ratings for the comedians so I knew which ones were ok for kids. The pool was freezing ocean water and was mostly empty the whole time. Hot tubs were so nice and we loved them.

Christmas Cruisin on the Miracle by leslie7NV

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Miracle / Destination: Mexico

I was already planning on which cruise I want to take next, before we had even left the ship. An amazing time of not having to worry about anything except which fabulous dining experience I wanted to have. I caught up on about 6 months of lost sleep. What a great way to disconnect from your cares for a bit of time.
