This was my 3rd time on the Carnival Miracle and I absolutely LOVE this ship! It is beautiful, the crew is fantastic, it's immaculate and the 8 day cruise everything you would want it to be. The ship leave right from the heart of midtown Manhattan, and the pier is so easy to get to. We park our car at the pier and walk right onto the ship within an hour's time. Embarkation is swift and easy, and cabins are always ready by 1:30. There is nothing like the sight of leaving on a cruise and seeing the entire New York City skyline as well as "Lady Liberty". There is nothing bad I can say about this ship. They do everything right. I have been on 10 cruises, but Carnival is the best.

Pros: Leaving from NYC. Staying at a 4 star hotel for FREE the night before. Cruising to the Bahamas was fantastic!

Cons: I can't say a bad thing about the entire experience.

Recommends Carnival Miracle? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
We always get a balcony, and the size and comfort are great. There is plenty of storage, and plenty of room under the beds to store even the biggest suit cases. The beds and pillows the most comfortable on the high seas. No one has a more comfortable bed than Carnival, and I've cruised every line!
Service and Staff
The crew is great They make a point of remembering your name and really personalizing your cruise experience.
Lots of shows (some of them lame, some of them great). Lots of trivia games and chances to win Carnival's "ship on a stick". Bingo was reasonable at $20 for 3 to 5 games. Some ships charge up to $40. The casino is fun, but to tell you the truth they have the same exact games as they did 4 years ago. It's time to change them
Ship Quality
Amazingly clean ship. Everything is sparkling and looks as new now as it did 4 years ago when I first cruised on her. It's easy to find your way around and you don;t run into any "dead ends" like other ships.
Food and Dining
Food was fantastic! All you can eat all the time. The dining room is a bit garish in decor, but after a while it becomes cozy.
Grand Turk Island
Very pretty island, but the beach is VERY rocky, so bring water shoes or you'll never make it into the water.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
AMAZING!! Clear turquoise water that was 85 degrees. Soft sand, lots of FREE beach chairs and a great BBQ on the beach for everyone. You do have to tender into this port, but it only takes 5 minutes and it's a beautiful ride.
Nassau, Bahamas
Shopping right at the port, but some parts are kinda seedy. We paid $20 each to get a tour of the island and it was worth $100 each! We saw everything from the ghetto to a tour of Atlantis Resort. Highly recommend it!
