We’re both scared of heights... so we went zip lining in Honduras!!

We chose this cruise as it spanned over our anniversary date and incorporated ports we love and a couple we hadn’t been to before. We were not disappointed!! Miracle was a beautiful ship! So many places to go and things to do and events to see! The atmosphere upon boarding was upbeat and welcoming while guests buzzed with excitement. I did appreciate that we purchased FTTF prior to cruising! A huge highlight was Nick and Nora’s Steakhouse!!!! Oh my gosh, was it delicious!!! And we received a free bottle of wine as we reserved it our first night aboard. We honestly had amazing staff the whole cruise! We were a fun group of couples and the staff seemed to enjoy our energy and went above and beyond in all of our opinions! Special shout out to “White Thunder” in the main dining room haha. Also guest service was amazing. Great people. Our cabin was great with a gorgeous balcony view on Deck 4 close to the elevators! Our ports were excellent! Wonderful excursions! Yummy drinks! HILARIOUS stand up comedy shows! We cannot begin to verbalize how amazing our trip was and how much we didn’t want to get off at the end of our trip! Highly recommend!!!

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin 8B

Our cabin was great! Obviously a little tight with my fiancé who is 6’4 lol. But we made everything work and the port side view from our balcony was unreal!! Note to self! Don’t open the front door while the balcony door is open! You’ll create a little tornado in your room! We had plenty of space for storing our luggage under the bed and brought a shoe rack for the bathroom door to use for toiletries, which worked perfectly! Lots of space to store clothing. Had a tv, couch, vanity, table, king size bed, mini fridge, closets, etc. We also were very close to the elevators without being right in front of them. Perfect distance. Only thing, which didn’t bother us but thought it was noteworthy, is that the live entertainment played at the bar by guest services on deck 2 pretty much comes up through the floor and wall at night. So if you’re an early sleeper, maybe go up a deck, but for us we’re night owls and it didn’t bother us at all :)

Port Reviews

Tampa

Tampa was busy! But that’s okay. We parked our car off site and walked over. Didn’t wait long in line at all. Had a hiccup in the embarkation process is to a technical malfunction with their computer systems, however, staff kept the crowds entertained and informed which helped the wait go smoother and eased my anxiety. The systems were back up within half an hour or so and line we’re moving again!
