Sail Date: Jan 2013
Cabin: Extended Balcony

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 decor on the Miracle is different to the point of gaudy. The first thing that came to mind was Michelangelo after a night out at Mardi-Gras. Saying that, the ship seemed super clean and the decor starts to grow on you after a couple days so it was a very minimal thing for us.

Port Reviews


We just jumped off the boat and did some shopping there for the kids and nephews. We marvelled at the straw market there for awhile but soon noticed that all the booths were pretty much the same, just what deals you could get.

We walked around the place and found the Queen's Stairway which is a nice place to visit and rest a bit.

The beach was a big disappointment for us. We expected white soft sand and we got white sand under seashells and chunks of white coral. We picked up a some for the kids and took some pictures but that was pretty much it.

We found out after that the nicer beaches are further away from the port so you would need to get a taxi.
