Default any body been on the Carnival Miracle

Has any body been on the Carnival Miracle? How was it? There is about 28 of us going
in December 5,2004, some of us has cruised before some not but all of us can't wait until then. We will be leaving from Tampa. Will anyone be sailing the Miracle on the same day ? Would love to hear from you.

I sailed on the Miracle for my first cruise ever on July 10, 2004. (7 day to the Bahamas from NYC.) I had a great time and thought it was a great ship. Are there some things I would change - of course., But nothing so major that it ruined my vacation.
Go and Have a great time.


Happy Cruising

Thank you taxmanhbr. I have seen a lot of pictures on other sites they look really nice.
Was there any thing that you liked the best or seen that we might like to do or see?

Was on the Miracle which sailed out of Baltimore this past May. This was our first Carnival cruise and I was a little apprehensive about going with Carnival. Well the Miracle made a Carnival believer out of me. The ship is very easy to get around. The decor is fabulous (even the purple/pink grapes in the dining room). The staff was great the food was good the entertainment was excellent. WE enjoyed the Miracle so much we booked another Carnival cruise on the Triumph for this December.

Hope to sail on the Miracle again some day. You will enjoy the Miracle.

DItto to evie. My wife and I also sailed on the Miracle out of Baltimore in May. And it was our first cruise. Our Cruise Director, Todd Whittmer transfered to another ship, but I understand that Big Tex and Karl with a "K" is still there.

And yes, you might need sunglasses in the Baccus dinning room....the purple grapes are alitte much. But, for the most part I was enjoying the fabulous food and table mates the actually pay that much attention to the decor.

Same here for all the above. I was on the Miracle in April. The service was EXCELLENT! I really enjoyed all the amenities on board too. There were plenty of places to go on the ship and lots of activities for everyone.

Don't waste all your time at the art auction. It takes HOURS and is not worth missing all the other activities for.

I also posted a review on this website.

Have fun!

What does this mean, Deborah? hehehee

We are a group of mostly 30 somethings, mostly couples, all friends since college. We will be on your same ship! We are from Minnesota and like to have a good time (most of us are getting vacations from the kids!) I have cruised 3 times (with Carnival to the Caribbean) and I think much of the group has, but not everyone. I am so excited I can hardly wait! I heard there is about 120 cabins reserved for some group of firefighters/EMS/ police. Do you know anything about that? We have 4 people on the waiting list that need to get on that ship!!! You may find us in the piano bar getting crazy when they sing Piano Man!

Double Dee your group has grown! We will have to meet . Missy Roberts(My sister) she is crazier then me would love to meet you,.(if you would like) WE like to meet people from difiant places. Has it gotten cool yet in Minnesota? We are having 80 degree weather here, and a lot of rain from the hurricanes that has come our way.
We have early setting for dinner, How about yall? Have you gotten your room asssignment yet? Some of our group picked their rooms, some didn't so they are waiting for that to come in. I will be in room 4172 if you like to meet. The only tour most of us really wont to do is cave tour in Belize. The men has talked about a fishing tour in Cozmel. So many choices we can't decide. Write back love to here from you! Or e-mail me at travelnut43@bellsouth.net. Waiting for Dec. 5. We have been waithing since JUNE,2003. TOOOOOOOO LONGE.

Hey Deborah! I am not sure you understood, our group hasn't grown, we have 17 people with 4 on the waiting list for someone to cancel. But we are all mostly in our 30's. We would love for our group to grow to 21 though and then all of our friends would be there. I would love to meet up sometime! Maybe we can arrange a little volleyball north versus the south on one of our sea days? hehehe I know we will be aroud the shuffleboard a lot! Some of us also have our room assignments, but I don't know them off hand. We are sort of all over the ship I think. We didn't book until March of this year and there wasn't a lot left. I I know I am on the level that has a limited view balcony and some of the group is one level higher. think the cave tubing looks like so much fun! We are having a pre-cruise planning party this Saturday to see who wants to do what, so hopefully we will have a bunch wanting to do that too! I know my hubby wants to fish as well, has your group looked at who they will be booking with for fishing trips yet? Do you think we will be going Grand Cayman? I know some of us are interested in Stingray City there. And yes, it is very cold in Minnesota now! I think it was 30 degrees when I got up this morning! Yikes! Well, we have what like 61 days and counting??? Yippee!!!!

Hi Mike H, Bikeen, Luv2cruise. Sounds to me you 3 will be on the same cruise. Let us know if GC is open to ships when you get back. I will love to hear from you all on how you enjoyed your selves, and what you did! Maybe it is something we would like to do.

Double Dee I like volleyball. We may have to get a game together!!!!!!!! Most of us is in our 30's to 40's but we may be up to the challenge. Our group is also all over the ship.
most though book balcony cabins. We love the pools, that where most of us will be at.
Having a pre-cruise party sounds fun. That is a good idea. We are having a big Halloween party and thats when we will talk about it. I do hope that Grand Cayman will be open. The kids wont to do the stingray tour. I think that will be cool myself. We will drive down on Saturday the 4th. We will stay at a HoJo in Tampa. They will take us to the port on Sunday and they will let our cars stay in their lot. They will also pick us up after the cruise. That will be a help to us. But I heard the Hojo is not a very upkept one, but the cars will be safe. I said for only 1 night I can make do. It is only $68.00 so I can't fuss to much. Will your group fly down the day of the cruise? THE COUNT DOWN HAS BEGUN. 61 DAYS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!! WRITE ME BACK! WE WILL HAVE TO MEET EACH OTHER.

To you folks going in November, I wonder if you might be so kind to save a copy of the excursion lists and daily capers....maybe you could post, mail or fax it when you get back?? Thanks in advance!

Hi Redhead! Glad you will be sailing with us! Where you from? Do you have a group or a couple or what?

Deborah, we are flying down the day of. We are all leaving our kids behind with granparents, so mostly we couldn't take the extra night. But $68 sounds like an awesome deal when it includes transport and parking! Wow! What ages of kids do you have travelling? (Our pre cruise planning party is before the Halloween party too! Everyone going on the cruise is coming a few hours early. ) I forgot to answer you before we also have the early seating for dinner. Are you booking your cave tour with the ship?

The 22 year old is my son he went with us on the last cruise. Redhead is 25 years old she was suppose to go with us last cruise but was pregnant and had some problems, so she did not go , but she is ready to cruise this trip. All grandparents are going no one to leave the kids with. The last cruise my sister's kids went they where sooooooooooooo goooooooood and fun to be with we could not leave them home. They loved camp Carnival, they did not wont to leave.
We all have early seating. we will have most of the dinning room with both oru groups. (at lest half anyway) I printed up the menu that Carnival has, it all looks good can't wait.
We will see you in 57 days.
O ya we will book the cave tour from regtours.com Their price is $55.00 aperson, but you got to have a group of 4 people or more.

Gottacruise and MikeH ~

I am also on the November 7 sailing with a group of friends from work. We booked wa back in March 2003 and it has been a long wait! It's almost here though!

We're all from the Clearwater/St Petersburg area. Is there a roll call for this sailing? It would be nice to chat more before we sail.

Just back from the Miracle sailing of October 3. Totally awesome and cruise director Mark is terrific. The decor is really beautiful and it gleams! Be forewarned, only one caveat; the coffee stinks! Our waiters Henry and Ana were the highlight of our day.
