Carnival Miracle - Western Caribbean
Destination: Western Caribbean
The first day was a day at sea and we wanted to go to the pool, but there were no chairs at all, and it was very crowded. We were surprised how small the pools were, and there was not much room in them. People were almost sitting on top of each other trying to get into the pool. The hot tub was nice, we went to the one that closed at midnight and there was not very many people in that one so we relaxed in it one night.
The shore excursions were nice. The first day we snorkeled with the sting rays and went to see the turtle farm. One day we set aside for just shopping so we could get our family some nice keep sakes. One thing we were disappointed with was the Cave Tubing tire. We had heard such wonderful things about it, but our tire guide was not very good at all. She stayed on her cell phone the whole time was very rude. It seemed like we hiked for ever and the guide did not wait on us we had to catch up by ourselves. We finally got to the river and started to tube down and I lost two of my cameras that had most of my pictures from the trip. There were quite a few people who lost their cameras and were very angry because there was nothing anyone could do about it. We expected to have been tied together so we would all stay in one group but we had to paddle ourselves. It made it so hard for my husband and I to stay together we were trying to paddle with one hand and hold on to each other with the other had so we were running into sharp rocks on the sides of the cave. It was beautiful, but we wish it would have been much more organized. We even got yelled at for having a hard time keeping up with everyone else. But none of us really knew how to steer correctly so it was not exactly easy for us. So needless to say we were a little disappointed with this tire. The best time we had was snorkeling in our last port of call. Everyone was so nice and our guide showed us all kinds of cool things to look at under the water. All kinds of cool fish and shells, it was really nice.
One thing we really liked was room service. It was no extra charge so if we got hungry at night we just ordered off the menu and had it delivered to our room. Our room Stewart was awesome and every time we left our Make my room sign out side the door by the time we got back he was already spotless in our room. That was nice. Over all we had a very good time but next time I think we would take a shorter cruise.
We got back the next Sunday and we did self check out so we carried all of our bags. That way we got off the ship very quickly. It took us maybe an hour we were off the ship by a little after 8:30 am. Less
