Pleased by the Miracle
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
The ship is obviously dated but well equipped, we made use of the gym and sauna everyday which was a key factor for us. There are lots of public areas although not all of these were used. This would be my only concern for the cruise, the entertainment and on board activities were limited. I More felt that the cruise staff were less than interested and even leaving ports found it hard to muster any sort of deck party. On the whole the staff were friendly but not as attentive as RCL or Princess but your not paying those prices so we were happy. Top tip would be to check out the hot tub in the gym as there are only 3 outside and they get very busy very quickly. As does the serenity area but I love this, it's a real positive for Carnival.
Leaving New York in March was always going to be hit or miss and actually it was miss for us as we got caught in a bad storm leaving furniture flying as we sailed downed south. We thought it was fun but the ships team managed it well.
Again to recap, Carnival is amazing value for money. The Miracle is not as great as some other ships we have been on nor were the staff but everything was good, exactly what we were looking for. We had a great time and are next heading on the Legend in June!! Less
