Overall, good cruise, but lacking in many aspects.

Background - I have been on three cruises on the Norwegian Dawn, so, this is my only point of reference. This was my first cruise on Carnival and my first cruise with my kids. Our ages - 5, 8, 9, 23, 33, 35, and ...

Some good and some not so good things

We were on the NCL EPIC in June and loved the ship. Going on Carnival only 2 months later was a risk. And even though there were some really nice things on the Miracle, it just couldn't compare with the EPIC. We ...

Is it a Miracle?

First of all, our sail date was out of NYC on 9/11/11, so I was a bit unsure how the feel would be in the City. But, all was well. Appeared to be just another day at the Pier. Embarkation was very smooth. We ...
