Review summary

I sailed on the Miracle this past Thanksgiving also. In the 4 months between cruises, the ship seems to have aged more than would be expected during that time. The Red Frog Pub was a highlight, except during karioke.

Very smooth process

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Dining room food was good, but probably a little short of expectations. Buffet was average at best.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Pools stayed busy. Inside activities seemed to be a bit scattered with quite a few gaps with little to do. The TV options have changed and there are even fewer options.


4 out of 5
Shows are the same old shows. OK but quality is at times lacking. Comedy varied with some comedians being very funny and a one or two being a clear step down. The band that often played in the Red Frog Pub was excellent.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Staff was very friendly and responsive. My dinner order was incorrect on 3 of 7 nights.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
I like the layout of this ship, but it is showing its' age.

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
The balcony door would not seal properly so we had a wind sound all week. The ship's sewer system seems to have an issue. Our restroom had a terrible odor the entire week.

Ports of call

Tampa, Florida

4 out of 5
Easy access to port and embarkation.

Cozumel, Mexico

3 out of 5
I like Cozumel, but our visit to Playa Mia resort was disappointing.

Belize City, Belize

4 out of 5
Goff's Caye is a very nice snorkeling spot.

Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

5 out of 5
I really enjoy zip-lining at the South Shore Adventure.

George Town, Grand Cayman

4 out of 5
The port is good, but we have worn out the excursions since most seem to include Stingray City.


4 out of 5
A little slow getting started, but I have certainly seen worse.
