Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food was very good. We ate breakfast at the buffet. It was always fresh and hot. The lines were not too long. We ate dinner in the main dining room most evenings. Our head waiter Kresimir took very good care of us as well as Zainal and Lasno (assistant team waiters) I loved the décor of the dining room. It is quite quirky. If you can schedule it, I highly recommend the Chef's Table... AMAZING 11 course meal. We also went to Nick and Nora's for my birthday dinner. Service and food were incredible for only an additional charge of $35 per person.

Onboard Activities

We have never done so many activities on a ship before. It all started with ANDY our cruise director. His wit and energy really set the tone for the entire cruise. His team was so fun and truly excited to be there. Our favorite fun team member was Shadeen from Belize. From the ship tour on the first day, to Digital Scavenger hunt (we won a "Ship on a stick", all the trivia games, bingo, etc. There was so much to do. The adult only area was beautiful and relaxing. The whirlpool in the gym was a nice surprise and loved the steamroom and sauna.

The entertainment was great. 88 Players were so talented and loved the different shows each night. We did make it to the 18+ comedians, all very funny. Get there early, as seating is limited. I also enjoyed the violinists in the atrium at different times of the cruise.

Service and Staff

Every single crew member that we saw ALWAYS said hello and was smiling. Our cabin steward, Slamet took great care of us and his towel animals were adorable. Only had to speak with Customer Service desk once and they were very helpful.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Let's be honest, The Miracle is an older ship and she is in need of an update. Some of the previous reviews I read really had me worried. The ship was very clean, pretty easy to navigate around and so many elevators. (hint: use the glass ones in the atrium to get to your room - they are forgotten about) The casino wasn't too bad with smoke smell, just walked fast through the area.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The size of cabin was perfect for the two adults. Plenty of storage for clothes and suitcases went under bed. The bathroom was clean and adequate size. Slamet our cabin Steward kept our room clean and turned down each night.
