The Miracle is a ship in need of repairs as we noticed a lot of rust and peeling paint. Getting us on and off the ship seemed sloe especially during embarkation when we had to stand in the hot sun for an hour.

Food was edible but not up to par compared to other cruise lines. I could not see paying $35 a head to eat in a fancy dining room when I had already paid for a meal.

The décor of the ship was a mystery as we could not figure out the theme. Looked like maudi gras in some places then other was historic soling figures.

Red Frog pub had a band but they would play for 1/2 an hour then take a half hour break, which would prompt the bar to clear out. Otherwise the band was very good. Same thing at the comedy club, the comedian would get the crowd warmed up then cool them off with a half hour break. Room was ok but small as on any ship nothing fancy.

Next cruise I will steer clear of the Miracle unless it has been upgraded.
