So, for my almost 2 weeks off in November, I am looking at 2 options right now, either CCL Miracle or CCL Freedom out of Lauderdale on their respective 8n voyages. I've already seen a few discussions on here about Freedom, but was wondering if anyone had any comments on the Miracle. I've sailed on a Spirit Class before (Costa Atlantica) and really enjoyed the size of the ship, and the price for an obscured balcony on Miracle is only a wee bit more than a basic OV on Freedom. On Freedom, since there are less consecutive sea days, I know I will be okay with an OV. Miracle has 2 full days out and 2 back, so I am sure I can enjoy the veranda. Both itineraries interest me because they both include ports of call that I have not been to yet. Freedom visits St Thomas tho, which I loved, but I really want to return there for its own vacation more than a short port of call visit. Same for St Thomas.
Of course, the end result might come down to whomever I can get to sail with me and what days they can get off from work, but as of right now I'm flexible for both.
