Carnival Miracle May 22 2011 - First Timers

Sail Date: May 2011
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
We just returned from our first cruise and we had a marvelous time. Hadn't planned on the cruise to be so relaxing but it was. We really enjoyed our private balcony, we never needed to worry about finding a lounge and room service was quick and painless. The spa was above average, excellent massage and salon services, tried acupuncture because, believe it or not, the rates were lower than our area prices.

The food seemed to get better as we cruised, we wished we had visited Nick and Nora's earlier in the cruise because the meal was over the top. The restaurant service was mixed, especially for breakfast and lunch, but at dinner we did anytime dining and once we discovered Pande we enjoyed excellent, consistent service.

Our room was marvelous, the steward took very good care of us. Overall the cruise was a very strong 8 out of 10. The ship is a little over the top for our tastes but many on Cruise Critic noted similar feelings, and it was OK. I think we will try More another ship the next time to see if the decor really makes any difference.

We will cruise again! Less

Cabin review: VS4228 Vista Suite

spacious balcony, aft views were marvelous, the cabin was quiet and very spacious. Very roomy closet, had no problem storing luggage and staying out of each others way. Nice beds, comfortable, supportive.
