OK it's not fair to compare The Carnival Miracle with the Celebrity Solstice and HAL's Amsterdam but that is what we just did. We sailed a TA on the Solstice then onto the Miracle then finished up on the Amsterdam for an Xmas-New Years Panama Canal.
The Miracle is truly the ugliest thing afloat. The only nice place was our cabin. Clean neat tidy. Not words you could use to describe any other place on the ship. One could barely find the Xmas decoration due to all of the ugly tacky stuff everywhere. Ugly filthy dirty I could go on and on. Staff the could seem to care less. What the hell is up with the roof over the pool. Poured rain several times during the cruise. People got wet and they never closed it. Truly seemed as if the staff could care less about the guests on board.
Food was so so. Ok for the most part in the dining room. Though, broccoli seemed to be the only vegetable. The Lido was so filthy I wouldn't eat there. Tables were never cleaned inside or outside. Filth all over the floors. The floors on the Solstice were clean enough to eat off!!!
The staff Dancers and singers were very good but the other shows were just OK. Smoking in most of the lounges made it impossible to enjoy them. For the most part spent most of the time in the cabin when not ashore. Even the balcony was not useable due to smokers next door.
