GREAT review Donna, and I can concur with everything you've written! While thinking about the many, many LITTLE problems with this cruise, they all point directly to the Cruise Director, and his staff. What a shame! "Miracle" has always been my absolute favorite ship in the entire Carnival fleet, but I can guarantee you that I'll never book her again as long as the current C.D., and staff are aboard. Was it a good cruise, you ask? YES, it absolutely was, but it could have been so, so much better !
