This is our second cruise on the Miracle and the ship is starting to show her age. The staff was wonderful and the captain kept us updated on the weather events due to Maria. The storm hit the second day in port with Maria 150 miles west of Bermuda. There was alot of wind and rain; you were not allowed on open deck. The crew added many activities for the majority of cruisers who stayed on the ship and did not adventure into port. The ship rocked and rolled on our return to NY.

Every day at 4:00 PM, for approx. 15 minutes, our cabin smelled like grilled onions. We questioned guess relations and they stated that it was due to the outside air return in the AC system. Strange people that we are, we started to look forward to the smell every day.

Our biggest complaint is the dinner menu and the food in the main dining room. The selection is limited and the quality of the food poor. (except for the bread and rolls which were great). The fish choices were either over or under cooked. The flat iron steak was tough and the fried chicken was dry and all crumbs, no chicken. Your best dessert selection is at the buffet at lunch. The deli and the grill were also good.

The comedians on the return to NY were FUNNY!
