Carnival Miracle

May 2018 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Miracle

joetrippy's Tips

St. John's, Antigua - Great port. A lot to do close by. We did the horse back excursion. Great time...great staff...lots of fun. Pretty Island
Basseterre, St. Kitts - Pretty Island. Daughter did dolphin excursion and really enjoyed it....we were able to watch the events without paying. usual "stuff" in port. They start to look the same after a while. But still a nice place to visit
Grand Turk Island - Great "beach" stop. A few local bars....great sand and beaches. Funny,,,people sit by the pool on lounges on the ship...then get off the ship to....sit by the beach and pay to sit in the lounges......oh well we all have our idea of fun
San Juan, Puerto Rico - These people need to focus on recovery from the hurricanes. I realize tourism is their industry but...Not sure Washington is doing what should be done.....talking with the locals....they still feel isolated and forgotten!
Nassau, Bahamas - Hasnt changed in 30 years of cruising. Straw hats and jewelry. Cabbies were quite insistent. Not as bad as Jamaica but...annoying
Carnival Splendor Carnival Splendor - Deck 5 is where you need to be to get from bow to stern inside...or go thru the cabin floors. Deck 4 and 3 have public areas but it is a bit disjointed getting around. We have been on this class chip before so we got the flick early....not so for many others. On and off at the ports was so smooth as well as embark and debark. Carnival knows how to move people
Cozumel, Mexico - fun and safe.....lots to do excursion wise or just walking around on your own
George Town, Grand Cayman - our favorite island. This island has its own economy aside from supporting cruise ships. clean friendly and fun. Could be a "destination"
Miami, Florida - Great place to start any cruise easy to get in and out
Belize City, Belize - long (20-30 minute) tender to port. Poverty prevail. Security with M-16's does nothing to make one feel safe....one has to wonder why they are necessary
Carnival Glory Carnival Glory - Easy to get around except to get to the paradise dining room which requires a round about manner up and down floors to get to from front to back. Guys Burger Joint is a great addition as well as the taco bar. Similar to carnival Valor in size and layout.
