Carnival Miracle Cruise Review by thezombiemaster
- Sail Date: March 2012
- Destination: Southern Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Ocean Suite
That said, I really have to say we where surprised by the Carnival Miracle. She is a beautiful ship with a great crew. we had an amazing time!
The decor of the ship is fantastic and seems less "ostentatious" than on other ships. The giant mural in the atrium is a particular favorite. We also enjoyed the decor in the Mad Hatter's Ball as well. (I am a huge Alice in Wonderland fan.) The hallways are decked out with literary characters that we enjoy. We had fun exploring Gatsby's Garden on the Atlantic deck forward...twice!
The food on this sailing was great. We ate all but one dinner in the MDR. It was outstanding and better than the food we had in December on the Carnival Freedom. Another standout was the breakfasts in the MDR on sea days. One thing we really enjoyed on this cruise was the sushi. It was VERY good and we ate a LOT of it! We also had a lot of room service, especially on port days. We only ate on the lido deck a couple of times. (A lot of people on this cruise seemed particularly rude. Since they seemed to congregate on the lido deck, we tried to avoid the deck...LOL)
The thing that made this cruise so amazing was the crew. What a fantastic group. From top to bottom they made sure we were well taken care of. Our room steward(ess), Yaowalak, and her assistant were attentive without being overbearing. Karnita our head waiter was great and one hell of a dancer! The casino staff were a lot of fun and made losing money very enjoyable. Our favorite bartender, Roque, kept our beer pitcher filled and finally was able to explain the game of cricket to us!
There was very little bad on our voyage. We did have problems with our TV but, those were resolved quickly. Some of the common areas could use a little sprucing up but that is to be expected.
Overall, we loved it and would gladly sail the Carnival Miracle again!

La Romana (Casa de Campo)We heard a lot of people complain about this port. In reality, it is no different than many other islands in the Caribbean. Yes, there is poverty but it is not different than Jamaica or St. Kitts. We found the people to be very nice. The island itself is beautiful and they are working hard to fix it up.View All 176 La Romana (Casa de Campo) Cruise Port Reviews
We took a boat excursion with Seavis Tours. They did a nice job and we would go with them again.
We booked it ourselves online.
