Carnival has just announced it will be changing the itinerary for the Miracle beginning with the Oct. 9 th cruise. Actully, it is very similar to the *temporary* itinerary that the Miracle has been on the past few months. The new itinerary is as follows:
Monday: Fun day at sea
Tuesday: Grand Cayman 7-4
Wednesday: Costa Maya 11-7
Thursday: Belize 8-5
Friday: Cozumel 8-8
Saturday: Fun day at sea
Carnival Miracle itinerary change is this permanent?
Heidi or anyone else:
Do you know if this will become the new permanent schedule?
Trying to figure out some excursions and just wondering.
p.s. Heidi we get on the ship as you leave-- Will love to see you post as you cruise as "Dorothy" posted while on board.
Below is a copy of a fax from Carnival that someone on another board posted. You will also see the change reflected on Carnival's website but for some odd reason, if you look at the itineraries on Carnival's website, the new itinerary doesn't show up until mid December cruises. All cruises before that still show the old itinerary but this fax indicates that all cruises are affected. I think Oct. 9th was the date the Miracle was *supposed* to return to it's old schedule. The fax also doesn't say anything about the 1/2 hour time change in Belize. It used to be 7:30 - 4:30, now it's 8:00 - 5:00.
Dear Carnival Guest:
We want to advise you that we will change the sequence of our visits to Cozumel and Belize on The Carnival Miracle cruises departing from October 9th, 2005 onwards.
We will now visit Belize on Thursday and Cozumel on Friday. We will also extend the call in Cozumel with a new 8:00 PM departure time. The changes have been made to improve your shore experience in these great ports of call.
If you pre-booked shore excursions on cruises from October 9, 2005 through November 27, 2005, we will handle the change of day for the Belize and Cozumel shore excursions onboard the cruise.
