Recommends Carnival Miracle? Yes!

Food and Dining
The food quality was good with the breakfast and lunch buffets having enough variety and quality to saisfy over the entire 8 day trip--Dinners were OK with a number of selections each evening which provided a nice variety--some entrees were significantly better than others but overall the food quality at dinner was good, not excellent
Service and Staff
The crew was friendly and helpful at all times
Ship Quality
The ship was not too large or too small and very easy to navigate--we found all the public areas clean and thought the Metropolis lounge in particular to be especially pleasant
Cabin / Stateroom
I found the balcony stateroom that we had excellent and every bit as good as Holland America and better than the Princess cruise we were on a few years ago--the cabin attendant was excellent and the room was always made up promptly and very clean
The big shows and lounge enetrtainment was easily the best of the cruises I have been on in the past few years--We liked everything about the entertainment
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Took a bus tour of St Maartan but have been there several times in the past--I think hiring a private cab with a few others would provide more flexibility and enable you to bypass the inevitable refreshment (say souvenir shops) stops
Don't Miss: Duty free shopping in general
Castries, St. Lucia
First time we visited the island and took the "Best Views of St Lucia" tour--worthwhile for the first visit--the tour people were friendly and helpful
Basseterre, St. Kitts
Took the railroad tour around the island's perimeter and found it to be be interesting for a first time visitor--next visit we will go the private cab route
