I meet many new, interesting people on the cruise. I wish everyone could enjoy the experience of cruising at least once in their life. We are booked for the May 2019 cruise out of Norfolk, VA and we are bringing first time cruisers with us...
This was my 3rd Carnival cruise was disappointed in the service, the temperature on board was horrible. And the small things we were provided for free now had a surcharge. Or were missing all together.
Itinerary was great.
Food was mediocore.
Service was exceptional.
Embarkation / disembarkation was ten times worse than terrible.
Internet service -- I don't know how Carnival can charge for internet service. It was down more than it was up.
This wasn't my favorite cruise on Carnival but as I mentioned earlier, I enjoy the perks of being a VIFP. One of the people I was traveling with is Active Navy and needed to be in Bethesda, MD the day after we got home. Being able to do some of his laundry on the ship was a godsend since he only had time to unpack and repack when he got home.
Overall we had a good time. I would not take another 7 day cruise due to inability to explore each port within the given time. Also they price gouge on the ship. We spent 450 usd on 20 pictures and 2 canvas 16x20. Also included gratuity was 450 usd. We also left additional cash tips for good service. If I take another cruise it will be a 4 to 5 day as they allow 5 people in the stateroom while the 7 day cruises make you purchase 2 staterooms, which greatly increaes cost.
The staff was super friendly. Food was outstanding. The ports of call were all wonderful and the time allotted at each port was perfect. The people on the cruise was also having a spectacular time which made things even better. Outstanding shows, and comedians. I would strongly recommend the Carnival Miracle to every age.
This was by far the best cruise i have ever taken. We went through a storm on the way there and it was still fine for me. On the way back a lot of people got sick with coughs and such. I had my antibacterial hand sanitizer on me at all times and also used the paper towels Carnival supplies to open bathroom doors so my husband and I did not get sick. All in all it was a great cruise.
Overall an excellent time celebrating our 30 year anniversary. Lydia at Guest services gave us a bottle of champagne and chocolate strawberries as a nice anniversary gift! Our steward Patowin was awesome and kept our room so clean and tidy!
i went to cruise trip first time i enjoyed on boarding everyday we stoped by cabo san lucas very nice place emerald water color and nice sunset view after that we went Puerto Vallarta There are a lot of retired people nice weather and clear water and good beach everything is good cruises foods are wonderful i want to travel again
We had paid for transfers from the airport and easily got the bus and it delivered us to the port quickly. We had the FTTF and were on the ship by 12:00 enjoying the fact that our room was ready as soon as we boarded. After dropping our carryon bags we went up to the Lido and had our lunch early. Sea days we played bingo and continued through the day ending with the adult comedy club. We found the ship easy to get around and all of the crew seemed to want to make our cruise enjoyable. you will not be disappointed.
Overall this cruise was ok I would not go on this cruise this long maybe a 3 or 4 days cruise because of the variety of food is limited so we got sick of the same food over and over and over again for breakfast. Ship was ok older than I thought
Sailed south off the coast of Baja for 2 nights and a day. Seaday was cold. Cabo had nice weather. Saw some interesting fish on my snorkeling excursion to Pelican Rock. Next day we were at Puerto Vallarta. Took the 7-hour pirate cruise to snorkeling and a beach. Next sea day was warm. Went swimming in the adult pool. The adult area on the ship is very nice! Plenty of room for everyone. Enjoyed the Halloween decorations on the ship. Enjoyed the choices of food at the buffet. Also enjoyed the desserts. I had the seating for dinner where i could go from 5:45 to 9. That worked very well for me. The band--Liverpool Rock-- at the Red Frog Pub was so fun to listen to.
I would go again on this cruise.
The one thing I really hated on this cruise was that this guy that kept telling up about a value book.
So we went to listen to his spiel and that's when we found out that this book he was pushing for discounts at both ports had a charge of $25.00. He made it sound several times before his sales show that the book was going to be free if you attended his spiel. Talk about a bait and switch!
