The Miracle was a beautiful ship and this one was one of my favorite to navigate around. We was in the center on 4th level and was perfect. (near elevators) Our embarkment went so easy. We got there around 10:30 and ended up going in with the VIP line by accident! So we went in and was eating by noonish. Our cabins were ready so we could just go in and start our vacation. Everyone was great except maintenance. We had an issue with no telephone service for about 15 hrs. and was upset but after several trips to the purser's desk, it was resolved. We needed a wake up call and room service, so that was fun, getting up going downstairs.....you get the picture. We did get 4 complimentary drink tickets for that one. We had great dinner companions but our dining room waiters were just so so. After speaking to the maitre'd he straightened them out and was fine after that. The food was excellent, as always, so no problems there. We were disappointed there were no fish and chips stations onboard like we thought. We asked and they said none. Other than that, everything else great. Of course the pizza is always great and the chocolate fountain on last sea day is always a treat and the longest lines! We frequented the piano bar and Larry was the guy but not the best singer. We was on the Glory last year and that guy rocked. (can't remember his name)We still had great fun and also the band was great too! We mostly stayed in piano bar most nights or gambling after seeing the fantastic shows. I loved all but the hypnotist. Boring......the Beatles show Ticket to Ride was one of my favorites. Don't miss it. We saw most of the same shows because the Glory had most of the same the year before. Only bummer, we didn't win in gambling or bingo. Not from lack of trying. The casinos are always so crowded and they need a few more penny machines they are so popular. (hey, you can still win alot in pennies...) I had some other issues I won't get into. You may email me with any questions, I will be happy to give you my best opinion. Oh, the ports were beautiful. We did mostly our own outside tours which proved to be so much cheaper and saw so much more. We interacted with the locals, St. Kitts, St. Lucia is beautiful. (we went to a local beach and we did see one topless women) No one told her to get dressed! St. Maarten is beautiful also. My favorite was St. Lucia. Disembarkment went slow. We were 22 so we didn't get off till 11:00 or so but we drove so no problem. It's always crazy that morning. Overall, I would go on the Miracle again and the ports were great. Other than a few problems, we enjoyed it alot.
