Traveled As: Family (older children)

This was our second time on the Miracle. My hubby and I sailed last year and decided to take the children with us this year, choosing the Miracle because we were familiar with it and it would be easier to corral our large group. We had 13 people and 7 cabins.
PARKING: We came from Massachusetts, so we drove in 3 cars right to the port. We parked on the upper parking deck right next to the ship. It's easy, convenient and VERY expensive! The price went from $160 per car last year to $240 per car this year! WAY to much! But my hubby doesn't fly so we were at the mercy of driving, and the train ended up being a lot more money and a lot less convenient.
EMBARKATION: Piece of cake! If you get there around 10am you can sit in a select number of chairs and wait comfortably while everyone else has to line up and wait while standing. Check-in was awesome. Fast, easy and friendly. Checking in 13 people was a lot easier than we thought. We got to the pier at 10:15am and were on the ship by 11:30am.
Pros: The service and the food
Cons: The Maitre De - Frankie - Ruined our vacation
