"The cruise left New York with stops at Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay, and Nassau before returning to New York. It was our 4th Carnival cruise (18th overall). We have sailed on NCL 13 times and Royal Caribbean once...."Read More

Carnival Miracle New York-Bahamas

Review for Carnival Miracle to Bahamas

First Time Cruiser

Age 50s

For our family's first cruise, I chose the Carnival Miracle from New York to the Bahamas this past February. I was trying to save some money for the 4 of us, and since we live in Belleville, ON, I thought we could just drive into Manhatten and skip the airports. MISTAKE! Driving from Ontario to New York in February is a gamble. We got stuck on the interstate after a 40 car pile up due to a ...

We cruised out of New York with ports in cocoa beach, nassau and freeport. First and foremost I heard a lot of complaining on the boat about not doing this cruise again. Listen folks this is a ship out of New York. There is typically some weather in the Atlantic in February so if you go on this cruise thinking it will be like one out of Miami think again. Again this is February so you are ...

We are back from the wedding cruise!!! I will break this up into sections so people can skip what they like. 1. Pre wedding (planning). Prepare to be in the dark. Alot. But fear not, the last few weeks before the wedding all will be revealed. I just wish they had told me that ahead of time so I didn't sweat anything. 2. Wedding day (embarkation). We arrived at the NYC port, it's NYC so it ...

I was going to post a very detailed review as I did take notes, but I do not want to be here typing for an hour so I will condense it. Day 1- Embarking The sooner you arrive to the Port the lower boarding zone number you receive, I was zone 4 and we arrived at 10am and they allowed us on the ship around 12:30. We headed straight to the Lido deck for some lunch, warning be prepared for a long as ...

I took my wife on a secret getaway to the Bahamas for our 10th anniversary. It was so secret she didn't even know about it until she got home the night we left when she came home to see the bags packed and everything ready to go. I chose this trip due largely to the price and we always heard the Bahamas was a nice place to go. Now, on to the review. As I have read on some reviews, the ...

Took the Miracle out of NYC on an 8 night cruise to Orlando/Nassau/Freeport on January 25, 2013. Easy embarkation, very organized. Overall we found the ship to be very clean and neat. We felt Carnival was very cheap with food; 2000+ people taking off on a ship are going to be hungry; they were making personal size pizzas one at a time as we sailed down the Hudson. At 4 p.m., you can expect ...

Just got back from a nice cruise on the Carnival Miracle. It was good but not perfect. EMBARCATION: Was a zoo as pier 88 had both the Miracle and the Norwegian Gem in port at the same time loading up. Was worried abut my baggage ending up on the right ship as the baggage tags are stapled on but I did get a baggage tag to put around the handle and it ended up on the right ship in the right ...

We had many options for getting away from the snow for Christmas. We looked at flying to California, Florida, or even Ireland. But, the lowest cost option was doing a Christmas cruise on the Carnival Miracle. This was my first time on Carnival. I've done Holland America and Celebrity, both which were excellent liners. We knew Carnival was a family-friendly and budget cruise line, so we expected ...

1. getting on: no power due to left overs from hurricane sandy. port staff and cruise staff were helpful. 2. getting in: security and checkin were typical. no issues. its not rocket science folks, anyone that complains that they were treated badly or freaks out when they don't get their bottle of wine put in their hands 2 seconds after flinging their Id at the staff rudely, deserve ...
