Spring break

Sail Date: March 2012
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

Started at Fort Lauderdale at Hampton Inn. Great place to park and take the shuttle to ship. Forgot about spring break and many cruisers were there. Had seven ships leaving that day.
This was third trip on the Miracle and last as its leaving for Alaska.

Got on last shuttle from hotel at noon and when arrived at port got onto ship in 20 minutes .
Miracle was more crowded than usual. Most areas were crowded and difficult to find seating at peak times on deck or Lido deck meals. Biggest joke as on any Carnival cruise is that you cannot save decck chairs. Go into Serenity area at 8am and see 10 people and no chairs. Does not improve during the days around any pool.

First problem with cabin in eight cruises. Had a foul smell from air conditioners in room and hall. The cabin was an upgrade on eight deck right under deck and chairs were bouncing all night. Eventually had cabin changed and everything better. Guest services worked to correct problems and More succeeded.

All three ports were great \. Had two excursions and both were great.
Food in Bauchaus was great as usual. Lido was inferior to past cruises on the mircle. Choices and times were not very good in eating. Deli is still great.Shows were the same as most Carnivls cruises i have been on does not matter the ship. Cruise Director was lost as usual. He doe not do a very good job. Band does a great job even though this is not usually my music i enjoyed them in several areas of the ship.
The staff that you came into contact with was great as usual. Big change from starting crusing with carnival is uniformed staff. When starting with Carnival they were friendly whenever you encountered them. Now They ignore you as a general rule. Most do not even say good morning when passing.
Return to Lauderdale was quick and smooth as usual Less
