Cruise from NYC
Carnival Miracle Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Sail Date: June 07, 2012
Ship: Carnival Miracle
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 5 years ago
The ship was showing it's age. This was our second time on this particular ship. The shows were the same as three years ago; it was disappointing that they were not changed in three years (even the costumes were the same). Breakfast and Lunch is no longer an option in the dining room; it is now called breakfast/ brunch. The seating arrangements are not clear and the staff, particularly Olga, was very short tempered and actually refused to bring menus when people did not see the small sign to wait to be seated and no one was present at the desk upon entering. Many people got up and walked out of the brunch. Our dinner service was excellent however and lunch on the upper deck was great. There was a storm on the last sea day. We would have appreciated a warning that the weather was going to be bad and the ship's movement was going to increase; that way we could have taken medication to head off sea sickness, especially in the children. There was no way to access the forecast.
