Because the NYC port would be closed due to Hurricane Sandy, the Carnival Miracle left a day early than scheduled. Instead of visiting San Juan and St Thomas, we stopped at Port Carneveral and Nasau. We were disappointed but were happy that we still at least had a cruise vacation.
The Carnival Miracle is a compact ship. The ride to beat Hurricane Sandy was stormy and rough. Drawers popped, glasses fell down the floors. Some told me their TVs fell! I didn't get sea sick, and could not help to feel dizzy and uncomfortable in the first night!
I wasa little disapointed at Nick & Nora Restaurant (with a $35 fee charge). It was just so-so, foodwise. Service is good though. Food and service at the Lido Deck were below par. Deli & pizza, all american fast food cultures. I loved the Taste Bar. Hope Carnival will extend its schedules and work to improve the overall dining experience for the cruise.
The Serendity Deck was nice and relaxing.
