Review summary

Enjoyed it for the most part but sure missed the entertainment we are used to on a cruise. Carnival was great to our veterans, had 2 special events for them. We were very impressed by this. We did have good times catching up with our 4 friends. Very relaxing cruise since their was not much going on that we were interested in!!

No problems...we arrived earlier than our time and they took us ...about 2 hours early

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food was good and the dining room staff could not have been better!! Head waiter Karnita went out of his way for us. One person in our party has complained NOW about the food. Anyone that can eat 4 lobster tails and double up on food most nights and NOW is complaining?

Onboard Activities

No major shows...seems the performances were by staff! A good piano player in the atrium and a couple there that sang very well. A good comedian one night....Cowboy. Most of the comedy shows were R rated so we did not go t those.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Could not have been nicer. Everyone went out of their way to be friendly. Marvin, our room steward was excellent. Our room was always cleaned and made up early even tho we told him we did not care what time . Our waiters. were wonderful....even got a big hug and a kiss on the cheek on our last night

Ship Quality

Areas were clean but really worn. Maybe Miracle needs to be retired

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
As good as any ship we have been on. Cabin was always spotless

Ship tip

Just wrong for us...Lots of bingo and not much else. We will return to NCL or Royal Caribbean for our next cruise.

Ports of call

Tampa, Florida Did not visit port

Great organization for leaving at the end of cruise. A worker from Tampa Port Authority pulledd us out of the evelavator line and took us to the front. We were afraid the people that hadd been in front would get upset. The 2 men in our party had on Air Force veteran caps and they all said thank you and said we should be at the head of the line!!!

Puerto Limon, Costa Rica

Panama Canal (Cruise Into Canal)

5 out of 5
There were no tours...just thru the canal and back. We enjoyed seeing the huge ships going thru the canal from our table in the buffet.

George Town, Grand Cayman
