  3. Carnival Miracle
We chose this particular cruise based on the dates & destination. We were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary. It was not the particular ship that we would have chosen. However, it was within reasonable driving distance. The ships decor was very eclectic. There were parts that were beautiful and others that were not. But, we had a great time. The staff and crew were so nice. You could tell that many of them loved their jobs. Juan our head waiter, Nithin an awesome photographer and Dan in the playlist cast to name a few. The playlist cast were talented and the shows were very enjoyable. Plus the cast were very friendly. Our favorite port was Grand Caymen. We took a cab to Royal Palms to gain entrance to Seven Mile Beach. Cost was very reasonable. In Belize, we went on the Lamanai Ruins excursion. It was great. I would highly recommend it, Overall, this was a great cruise.

Great Cruise

Cabin Review

Extended Balcony
Cabin 8K 7180
Our cabin was very nice. It had plenty of room for a weeks vacation for two. We loved the balcony. Being able to watch the gorgeous sunsets or just relax overlooking the ocean was wonderful. The bathroom was small, but normal for a ship. It definitely served our needs.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Lamanai Mayan Ruins
    The ruins were quite interesting to see. The motorcoach ride there was narrated by great guides Nuri and Bernie. They were very informative on both the ancient ruins as well as modern day Belize. Would highly recommend this excursion.

  • Cozumel
    Transported to a private island where we spent time relaxing on a gorgeous beach. Lunch and drinks were included.

  • Grand Cayman (Georgetown)
    The exact excursion that we wanted was not offered. So, we created our own. We took a cab to the Royal Palms resort. We paid an entrance fee which gave us access to Seven Mile Beach. One of the most beautiful beaches in the world. There we rented beach chairs and an umbrella. It was the most enjoyable day. We bought lunch there getting the conch fritters and a mahi-mahi grilled sandwich. It was so delicious!! The whole experience was under $100.00 for both of us. Very much worth it!!!

  • Beach
    The beach was nice. The day we were there wasn't too crowded. However, it's more of a lagoon than oceanfront. The chair lifts were nice and the clamshell with chairs were really great. If you're wanting to feel like you went to Honduras, this is not the excursion for you. You basically feel like it's Carnival on the beach. However, if you're just looking for a relaxing day on the beach in beautiful water, then go for it.
