My boyfriend and I took a 2 night cruise to nowhere on the Carnival Miracle. We met on the same ship a year ago and thought it would be a fun idea to go back to where it all started! We were both nervous that it wouldn't be the same as a longer cruise (shows, amount of food, activities) and that we would be bored. Both of us are in our late 20's so it was important that we had things to do.
Well, I have to say that it was just as good as a 7 night cruise. Everything was exactly the same. The only thing we did not know was that they did have a formal night of dining. Luckily I had black dress pants and he had a dressy pair of jeans. We weren't kicked out of the dining room...they didn't seem to care much. There were people who were dressed far more casual than us and everyone went in the dining room.
The downside was that the 2 shows were the same shows from our cruise the year before. I wished they were different and thought the cruise line might have had special shows for this particular cruise.
The buffets were exactly the same and there was always enough food. They even had the sushi cart (only for one of the nights)!
You even got a daily itinerary just like the longer cruises. We did martini tastings and wine tastings, which were both really fun. They had a lot of things for you to do and we were not bored for a single minute. The nightclub was packed (on our cruise it was empty every night), which was fun. Everyone seemed to be enjoying their 2 days of vacation. The service was wonderful and everything is so orderly and efficient.
When the ship docked in the morning we had breakfast at the buffet and then were able to leave right away since we carried all of our own luggage. We were off of the boat by 8:30 AM.
This was a great cruise and the perfect amount of time!
