First Cruise- and Carnival Miracle made us love it!
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
MY boyfriend and I took our first cruise aboard the Miracle from Christmas Eve to New Years. For the price we booked (booked an obstructed view balcony room but got bumped to a regular balcony) we felt the cru8ise, ship, staff and service was excellent. Being that this was a long trip with a total of 4 sea days, it helped that there was lots of food and activities (good food at that )to keep us busy and and a fun fun trip.
We went to Port Canaveral in Florida (Our least favorite, and could have done without it), and then off to Nassau and Freeport Bahamas. We did the Atlantis excursion in Nassau and fell in love with the resort and water park. We hit the beach ih Freeport and did some shopping. Overall we felt it was well worth it and made for a great and affordable holiday vaca!!! :)
* we did not know that there is no heat on the ship in the rooms. There is only AC (so u can turn that on or off) but there is no heat to turn on. We would've been a little more prepared More for that if we had known, since the first 2 days leaving NY was very very cold. They did provide us with extra blankets
*Internet via satellite can be purchased (a little expensive however)
*You must check out the Nick and Nora's steakhouse- its the only place you pay for food. Make a reservation ($35 per person). We did it one night (NYE night) and the food was awesome Less

Cabin review: 8130
our cabin was 8130- balcony view- (very lovely)-with 2 chairs and a patio table. we had a king sized bed and a bathroom with a shower (no tub). Toiletries were provided, as well as shower gel ane soap/daily towels etc. There is a safe, and ample closet space for 2 adults. There was also a couch and table. The tv was mounted on the wall. A perfect room for a young couple like ourselves :)
