Compared to other Carnival Ships the Miracle NEEDS HELP. The Food is not the best Unless you like DRY FISH, PASTA and DEEP FRIED. and the food service times are VERY LIMITED,(only lunch and only for couple of hours) on several occasions parts of the the buffet dinning did not even open.( I am good on Chicken fingers, Pizza and Nachos for a very long time now.)
The Pool areas were also being Cleaned and Down for repairs all the time also it seemed. They did keep the one outside pool open when it was 40 degrees, raining, and in ports while in Alaska.
The crew had language barrier problems when you tried to ask a question and a supervisor had to be called in. Also while waiting to exit to ports the crew was playing around with one another (TV 14 and my personal note: get a ROOM already) BORDOEM will set in on this ship due to the lack of facilities for nightlife(piano bar and the other lounges). The George Lopez comedy club was just ok at best. I was hoping GEORGE LOPEZ would come out to SAVE the show but did not.
Tiny Closet, Hallway to Noisy. Walls were THIN SHEETS of paper, Several times during cruise I thought I was in a Hostel.
BORING, WHY, WHY, WHY, Did they stop here? It was the longest port stop (14 hours) and after 1 hour you have seen the town and want to leave.
City Shopping was good, Nice and clean town to walk around had a couple of good eating spots to eat at. Cruise Friendly.
Got to only spend 6 hours in the town. Wished I could have stayed Longer. This town was a small little fishing town and was so nice and enjoyable to walk around and relax. PLENTY OF SHOPPING, Go to Creek Street for sure. Food Venues were not open due to the time of ships itinerary It was the port that saved the trip.
