If this was my first cruise I would be happy, but since I know what has gone on previous cruises not happy. The crew look tired, I lot of them I talked to were leaving for a couple of months to go home. I don't know about cutbacks but this ship needs some tender love and care food was not good. Room steward gets a plus but you could tell he knew the most people were not happy. I understand Carnival has these new ships but going to lose lots of customers if it doesn't get these others fixed quickly.

Wonderful Experie nce

Wonderful and attentive staff. Ship was obviously one of the oldest in the fleet and the decor mirrored that. Overlook that, and the cruise was excellent.

Good cruise with itinerary problems

Dec 4th, 2018

We did not get the notification of the itinerary changes which in turn made all of our excursions incorrect. It took a long time to clear this up and we missed our first excursion, the best one, because of the mix up. Annette was extremely helpful in resolving the issues.

This was our first time cruising and the few problems we had, we consider to be learning experience and did not hamper our fun and enjoyment. We plan to cruise again!

Not so great!

Dec 4th, 2018

Dining room food and service far superior to buffets. However even in dining room, some food such as prime rib was poor. Four entertainment options were laughably bad. Show group choreography/talent, band in pub, solo guitarist, and piano bar were all horrid. Comedians were great, but many shows in the middle portion of the cruise were standing room only and required arrival at least 30 min before show time. Violin trio was amazing and provided many performances throughout the ship. My dinner mates suggested that the cleaning of the ship was lacking.

Great cruise

Dec 3rd, 2018

We were surprised at the very easy embarkation and debarkation of the Miracle. Best ship in this category Again the staff was friendly and great at their jobs and making us feel special. The comedians were top in their field. The musicians were also good in their field. Best cruise because of the staff. We’ve been on the Fantasy Fascination and Dream several times and all were excellent. However the Bacchus staff and room steward made the Miracle our best experience because of the attention to detail and personal touch they added. We will definitely return. Our room steward was new and still managed to impress us

Due to all the negative reviews I read about the ship for the last 6 months I called Carnival to change the ship we were going to cruise on, but my wife asked me to stay. I am glad we did. Yes the ship was older and did not have some of the cool things like the newer or remodeled ships have, but we stayed busy and met new people. The dining room with the grapes was a little strange, but again I do not go on a cruise because of the ships decorations. Food was not great in the buffet, but what do you expect when you are feeding so many people and trying to please everyone. The dinning rooms meals were great. After reading the reviews on this app for so many months I really believe that people complain to complain and set the expectations of Carnival so high that they are unable to meet. My wife and I will schedule another Carnival cruise in the next week and will have a great time.

Everything about the cruise was just about what I thought it would be. It took a little bit longer than I anticipated to get through customs.
