Reviewing the Carnival Miracle

The embarkation process was very easy once you get past all the traffic and chaos at the port leaving Tampa. One thing that we did not like is when we were getting dropped off the people that collect the bags were ...

Bland food, terrible wifi coverage and sporadic air conditioning but clean

Embarkation was very smooth under the new system. Port of Tampa is an absolute traffic disaster but that is not Carnival's fault. The miracle is the type of Carnival ship that I like. It hasn't been "refitted" ...
