  3. Carnival Miracle
This was a group cruise for an international group onboard on Jan. 20, 2019 sailing out of Tampa. Embarkation was very fast and easy. Really enjoyed cruise with couple exceptions. Dining room late seating, service was very slow, and after 35 cruises, when ordered more than 1 entree or appetizer, Have never had them deliver all the appetizers or entrees at same time. Made for a very crowded table, especially since at a 6 top. We had also requested to be with our group, but were put halfway across the dining room. Both travel agent and our Carnival rep had multiple booking numbers to tie reservations together, but didn't happen. Only other complaint was when you get a comedian the caliber of Just Judy, you need to move her to the main theater and not Punch Liners Club. She has been on Carnival for a long time, and you guys know she can fill the larger theater. Also, never saw more than a couple times our CD Savanna, and we had a Cruise Critic Meet and Greet on LAST day of cruise????? NEVER in 35 cruises, had that happen. Usually on first sea day so we could meet our fellow cruisers and hang out with them. She said she just learned about our meeting that morning, although we met the required 25 members 3 months ago. A good cruise, but not a GREAT one, but there is not a bad cruise, just some better than others. After this one, even though am platinum, may consider a different line for a change.

Good but not Great!

Cabin Review

Ocean View
Cabin 6A 1191
The cabin was the one part of the cruise I had no problems with. Our room steward was good, although we never saw him. On first day, we told him only thing we really wanted was constant ice in room and he took good care of that. we also ask for room to be serviced twice a day, and he did that, although we were not used to getting a towel animal in the afternoon. Other than that, room was very good.
