8 Night Exotic Southern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 21, 2010
Ship: Carnival Miracle
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 7 years ago

This is a large ship and the staff had trouble looking after the amount of kids/teens on-board. They also kept the deck light off for some inexplicable reason and when we complained the guest services agent was dismissive to the point of being rude.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food was of acceptable quality and tasty but uninspiring. Chateaubriand was served with an inferior cut of beef and portions were small...had to request seconds on many occasions (which were cheerfully provided, I might add). Little or no sugar-free food selection.

Entertaining, but a little corny....

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
My teen found friends to spend time with, however there were more than a few occasions where the teens were drinking alcohol and smoking without any intervention by security or supervisors.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Friendly and cheerful, except incident with guest services agent.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The ship was kept spic & span. We enjoyed walking on the 10th deck except the fore-deck lights were continually left off for some inexplicable reason. Walking through the casino was a disgusting experience due to the foul stench of tobacco

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Great Stateroom!!! Spacious and comfortable for 4 occupants. We requested a room with a window and were given a room with a wall-sized window with a door in it leading to a balcony.

Unfortunately water activities were canceled due to rough seas.

We enjoyed Curacao the most...colourful, vibrant and friendly.

We found Aruba to be the least desirable of the ports of call we visited. It was generally unkempt and if you're not located at the hotel area, downright dingy.

Pros: The getaway

Cons: Problems with security onboard

Recommends Carnival Miracle? Yes!
