Review Summarywas on a carnival cruise (the miracle) for the first time....the decor in the dining room was a little gaudy in my opinion - well actually the whole ship's decor was a bit much for me...it needs to be toned down and made less ostentatious...
the staff ,though, was very nice and helpful...our rooms were larger than expected and kept spotless by housekeeping...people in the dining room were welcoming as well...dining service varied, as we had free sitting....one night we were rushed, then on another, the meal lasted 2 1/2 hours...food wasnt bad...but, frankie and johnnies - the steakhouse an additonal $30 PER PERSON -was the best meal that i had for the entire voyage...def worth the $$
also, i admired the fact that our captain was intelligent enough to avoid tropical storm Emily and kept us apprised of changes made in our itinerary...we ended up going to San Juan PR and St Thomas...which we all enjoyed...wish we had more time at the ports though, but understand that it wasnt a planned stop...
the worst thing on the ship was the flooring by the pools...veryyy slippery!...i slipped and fell myself - as well as saw others do the same...the staff did attempt to keep it mopped,but it is the wrong kind of flooring...
entertainment was ok...casino was nice...
loved their special brew of Thirsty Frog beer....only available on ship....
all in all, it was a nice time...
