8 Night Exotic Eastern Caribbean (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 22, 2007
Ship: Carnival Miracle
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 10 years ago

This was our first time on a cruise and we didn't know what to expect so we were pleasantly surprised by the amount and diversity of the activities provided to us. We specifically enjoyed the art auctions and the fine gym facilities along with the plentiful and delicious food. The children had plenty to occupy themselves with all the camp carnival activities and the topside water slide. The entire staff was extremely friendly and accomodating.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Quality and variety of the food was great and it was very plentiful, although next time we will go for the early seating at dinner so we won't be too tired to see all the shows.

It wasn't like Las Vegas, but was very entertaining nonetheless.

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
Kept them busy and happy.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
We had no special requests and very little room service, so therefore did not test the staffs ability to go 'above and beyond' expectations. Everyone we encountered was unfailingly polite and helpful.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
We were happy with the cleanliness in all areas of the ship and although it was our first cruise we thought the layout was decent and accessable once you learned where everything was. Pinocchios lounge for the kids was a little awkward to get to, and your children in and out of. We thought the decor was a little on the gaudy side.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The BJ's travel agent we used recommended an excellent room on an upper deck near the stern of the ship that afforded easy access to food, sundeck and hot tub/pool area. Although we spent a little more for the balcony room, it was entirely worth it. The room was big enough for a 4 person family without feeling too cramped.

You'd think they would have at least a few public restrooms for tourists that are spending their hard earned money in your port. Had to cut our visit short to take our young children back to the boat. We passed on the $80 cab ride to this Islands only supposedly decent beach.
Don't Miss: none that I can think of

$32 for a two mile round trip to spend MORE money at Charlotte Amalie? $72 for a family of 4 to go to Coki beach and back in a maniac cab that nearly had a head on accident passing a truck on a blind curve? Never again.
Don't Miss: None that I can think of.

Dirty, smelly with a lot of homeless people. Did not feel entirely safe. We would stay on the boat next time if we ever went back.
Don't Miss: Don't miss your opportunity to stay on the boat.

Pros: Camp Carnival for the kids, the Art auctions and the cleanliness of the boat

Cons: Late embarkation (delayed further for a wedding)

Recommends Carnival Miracle? Yes!
