Background: This was my 12th cruise on Carnival and my 2nd time on the Miracle. First time was in 2006 and I remember LOVING it back then. This time around was a little different.
We originally scheduled our cruise to Cuba. When that got cancelled, we decided to still leave out of Tampa (where we live) and just pick a different itinerary. We got a $100 OBC for doing that. The Miracle came up with a good price and although we were concerned because it didn’t have all the 2.0 upgrades, we decided to give it a try.
Embarkation: It was a BREEZE. Walked right on without any real lines and were on board within about 10 minutes!
We did a horseback ride through the ocean. It was a wonderful experience and as described in the carnival excursions info.
