Default anyone do the 8-day Freedom or 8-day Miracle cruise lately?

Well now that I've take my first cruise with my son, I'm researching which one I'd like to do solo. I have a short list of 3-4 cruises and the "8-day eastern caribbean" itinerary on Freedom is is #2 on my list (as it has 4 sea days and I want to keep sea days to 2/3 if I can). #1 on my list is the "8-day eastern caribbean itinerary" on Miracle .

If you did either of these cruises, and posted a review, please give me the link; I'd love to read it!

Thank you!

(NOTE: checked carnival site and now these are the ships for these cruises...)

Michelle, I sailed on the 8 day itinerary on the Carnival Liberty last month. Our itinerary included Nassau, San Juan, St. Thomas, Antigua and Tortola. It was a great cruise. I haven't had time to post my review on the Boards yet. If you have any questions, I'd be happy to help. I wanted to book this same cruise for next year in June but the last sail date for this itinerary is in April. I loved the Liberty so much that I booked a cruise in June 2008 but with a different itinerary.

Michelle, what is the itinerary for the cruise on the Miracle? I was just assuming it was the same as the Liberty but perhaps not.

We did the 8 day Liberty in April, and it was outstanding! Liberty is an absolutely beautiful ship, and does have the Movies Under the Stars as well.
We're booked on the 8 day Miracle in October, and fully expect that it will be as good as, or better than Liberty. Miracle is my absolute favorite Carnival ship, as we prefer the Spirit class ship a bit better than the Conquest class. (just a bit smaller, fewer people, less crowds, and better service. IMO)
Either of these will be a cruise to remember I have no doubt!

Ken

I'm going solo on the 8 night Miracle cruise in a few weeks. I'll let you know how it goes. Just one thing to point out is that you were looking for 2-3 sea days, the Miracle is 4 sea days. I prefer the sea days. Two sea days going, two sea days returning. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks, I'll be anxiously awaiting your review! I guess that isn't too bad, as there are 3 excursion days in between the sea days!

thanks everyone, looks like the LIberty is popular! I will consider that - though now I'm also looking at NCL and RCCL for my next cruise. I think I want to experience ALL the major cruiselines at least once.

Ken thanks, I'll definitely take this into consideration. I'd prefer smaller crowds so will look more closely at Miracle.

Michelle,
Sandi149 is the member you need for info abou the Miracle. I think last week she did post some info and also a link to her review/pics of the Miracle. She is very knowledgeable about that ship.
See if you can do a search dfor Sandi149 and for her posts, I am sure you will find it.

Captain
