Bad Service

Sail Date: September 2010
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)

Went on this cruise with our neighbors, just to get away. Got to New York early, checked in without any trouble. Room staff were still cleaning our room which we expected. Cleaning staff could not do enough for us. And that is about where it stops.

Dress up nights were a joke. Still had people coming into the dinning room with shorts and t shirts and baseball hats on.

Waiters were excellent and performed for us before desert. Hell, they did a better job of performing than the shows at the front of the ship. Food was OK. The mater Dee didn't show me anything and only seemed to cater to certain people.

The casino was dirty and smelled too much, especially the smoke. My wife and I had to go up a floor to get to the other side of the ship just to skip all the smoke.

The miniature golf needs resurfacing. Greens were all torn.

Coming back to New York we ran into rainy weather. The Miracle has a cover on the deck that can be closed during bad More weather so that you can sit and enjoy the area. The pool area was not covered so that only left certain areas to go on the ship.

Room service really sucked. We ordered pitcher of coffee and fruit. When they got to our room, we got the pitcher and fruit, but no coffee in the pitcher. Also you cannot order breakfast to your room like other ships. What a disappointment. Less

Cabin review: Carnival Miracle Balcony Verandah 7311

Didn't have any problems with our cabin. The water in the shower was really hot, more so than on other ships.

Port and Shore Excursions


Really nice island. We were here only a short time also. Margaritaville was great and the water was clear and warm. There were some rocks but overall a nice place to swim and snorkel. The duty free shops were expensive, I guess everything has to be imported.


Got there to late 3PM to late to really do anything.

Been here before and love the place. We were docked here all day 8-5. Lots of shopping and things to do.
