Denied boarding by mindy251

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Carnival Miracle / Destination: Caribbean - Western

After the disappointment of my husband not boarding there were other issues. No one told me that I would still be charged for double occupancy even though I was now sailing alone, nor did they notify us that all excursions and pre-ordered equipment would be cancelled without notice. I then had to pay for all my excursions again and fight to get my original ones refunded. I also had to jump through hoops to be refunded for the pre-sale items. The staff on the ship were wonderful and the ports were beautiful. I am just glad I was with a large group of family and friends. Still heartbroken that my husband had to stay behind.

Low Bidget Carnival but had a great time with my wife by CaRichE

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Miracle / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Let me preface this review by disclosing that my wife and I are Platinum Level with Princess so that is our comparison. Although we were only Ruby level, the boarding process was quick and easy we arrived for our appointment right on time and were on board by 12:00 pm. We had a suite so we had early access to our cabin. The Lido deck was packed and so was the buffet so we grabbed a burger ate it really quick and went down and hung out at the Atrium Bar until about 1:30 when we headed to the room to see if luggage arrived so we could unpack. We received our checked luggage around 2:30 pm. We booked a Vista Suite due to the price being awesome and it by far was one of the best rooms we have ever had on a ship. Would highly recommend this cabin type on the aft of the ship. Overall the cruise served it's purpose which was rest and relaxation. The ship was really old although we liked the décor. It did not have all the bells and whistles of the newer ships but we managed to keep busy enough. There wasn't a whole lot of quality activities on board. There’s no outside movie theater on this ship. The water slide looked like an antique and there were two pools for everyone and one pool in the Serenity area for the 21 and over area. All pools were packed and the adult only pool was dirty and full of drunks whom I never saw get out to go pee. The comedy entertainment was awesome. The live musical shows were awful. The lead female singer screeched like an owl on attack and there was no diversity in the cast (All white). They even tried to do a Motown show with all white performers. Most people seemed to be interested in drinking and spending all their time in the Casino. We were disappointed that they did not have any "talks" on Pirates who sailed the Caribbean or of the history of the ports we were visiting. We have always seen these types of talks on the Princess ships we have sailed wherever we were traveling. We had the Anytime dining and were seated very quickly each time. However, once seated it took forever to get through dinner. The food was just ok. Nothing to write home about and nothing like the great food we have had on Princess. The buffet, pizza and grill was always crowded and it seemed that Carnival always had sections of buffet areas closed so everyone was crammed in the same place trying to get food. We went to the steak house for my birthday which was extra charge, but was awesome and definitely worth doing at least once. We did get the Cheers package and managed to get our money's worth for the cruise. It is a good option if you drink as there were many at the end of the cruise crying at guest services about their bar bills. (that is great entertainment if it is not you LOL) We booked our excursions through Carnival so that we didn't have any issues. The ship stays on eastern time even though you go through two time zones so it can be confusing when on shore. We did the Cayman Land and Sea, Princess Maya Resort, and the Lamanai Ruins tour. All were excellent and we would recommend. We had one booked for Cozumel but we were too exhausted from late nights and early rising so we turned the tickets in. The photographers were everywhere trying to get you to take pictures. They offer no digital package and waste so much paper printing every picture instead of using a photo card and monitors like at Disneyland or other theme parks. Very expensive to purchase photos. (Same complaint for Princess) Don't do the photo studio unless you are ready to shell out thousands of dollars. The Alchemy Bar and the Gotham Bar were our favorites. You definitely have to go see Yudhi at the Gotham Bar on deck 3 outside of the Bacchus. He is awesome, friendly and a blast to hang out with. Cruise Director Frankie was awesome and made it fun. Although there were many younger adults on the cruise, the dance floor at Frankenstein's was usually sparsely used. I think the most I counted were 8 people at one time. (Approx 12-1 am) On Princess you could hardly find a spot to dance. Overall it was a sufficient vacation but continually felt like we were on a floating Motel 6 or Days Inn. Very much a younger crowd. We did not take the kids this time with us. We are willing to try Carnival again but it will definitely be on one of the newer ships with more bells and whistles and the next time we take our kids.

Great fun, not so great ship by Simaralynn

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Carnival Miracle / Destination: Caribbean - Western

For me the ship needs work and good maintenance and the night entertainment is just ok. I chose this ship because of the route and I loved every port so I don't regret it but I would not go again on the same ship.

A Cruise to remember! by Pjpatel

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

Definitely recommend to friends! Also we will select again in future as well! Few suggestions: : Need some more shows and entertainment! Particularly, when there are two days and nights of sea days! Swimming pools are very small!We felt that only two ports of visits were not the value for the cruise! ! But we understand security and feasibility EA are also important!

1st time on Carnival, 1st time on a smaller, older, max capacity ship. by wccultured

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Carnival Miracle

It would have been nice if I were to try a newer Carnival ship as my first cruise with the line. After trying NCL multiple times and Royal, id have to say Carnival is at the bottom low tier of the cruise lines. People say it’s the Walmart of cruising, but I didn’t get much value with my rate. The crowd out of SF going into Mexico was kind of ghetto, ratchet. It was also the experience, from roach on my balcony to bartenders at the serenity bar asking if I were going to tip, to broken down double decker bus in Mexico during my excursion. Id have to say over all it was a hood rat time. But I went into it with low expectations and knew what I was getting into.

Adventure of a trip by babbz1980

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Miracle / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

We had a some great adventures on this trip. We met many couples full of wisdom and flare. In the beginning we wished there were more people on the boat our age but in the end we still had a great time. Everyone was so friendly to us and this cruise was very diffrent experience compared to our other trips. conversations and friendship were much more meaningful. It was not just about partying and drinking. This is a very memorable trip and thank you to everyone who made it that way.

Awesome by brentparker

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

We were in suite 6329, very nice suite lots of space. Views were beautiful, room service very good. Daily site cleaning excellent. One concern I thought the suite should gave been cleaned more thoroughly before we arrived, clean stains/spots from walls/pictures,  mirrors with no streaks, wood trim on base board re-stained or polished. Once you arrive stewards are to busy to try cater to one room.

When trouble comes calling - this cruise line was/is amazing by duffyboysmom

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Carnival Miracle / Destination: Mexico

We had to abort our trip after just 2 short days due to serious illness in our party. That person passes away today leaving us with memories of a 2 days cruise that we will never forget. The crew and staff at Carnival were amazingly supportive and comforting during this unfortunate incident and they did everything they could to make our departure as smooth as possible. We can never say thank you enough to the staff and crew.
