I have been on very many cruise vacations in my life. And while it is not usually the first thing that you think about, but two years after I first cruised the Carnival Miracle, I am still thinking about the pizza. Is there more to a cruise than the food? That depends on who you ask, but on the Carnival Miracle there is a lot to do.
As of this writing, the Miracle is sailing out of New York during the warmer months of the year. When I sailed her, she sailed from Tampa Bay, Florida for a Western Caribbean itinerary.
The design of the ship is much like the theme for the entire line of ships, fun. The colors are bright and festive and the decor is the same. As with most Carnival ships, there is lots to do. And unlike most Carnival ships, this one is really easy to get around. I usually advise people to book only on ships that were built in 2001 and later. This will ensure that your ship really will be designed to carry the number of people it will carry. In fact, this ship has among the largest gross tonnages of any of the Carnival ships, which means that most of the time, you will not feel crowded. Contrary to popular belief, the gross tonnage is a measure of size, not weight.
The food, is the best I have had on any ship. I have sailed not just Carnival, but many other cruise lines. The pizza, like I already referred to, is the best I have ever had. The service on this ship was exemplary: The table service in the dining room was prompt and courteous and the room service was equally memorable.
I have no problem with recommending this cruise ship to anyone considering a cruise vacation.
When I cruise, I really enjoy everything it has to offer. From the first-class Broadway style shows to the five-star gourmet cuisine.
