Anyone been on the Miracle this summer? I'm leaving in a few days and would like any last minute reviews/advice.

Thanks.

Hi Mike,
Just a last minute bon voyage to you! Have a wonderful cruise. You picked a beautiful time to cruise out of NYC. Your weather should be perfect this time of year.

Happy cruising.

Thanks, Andrea. It really does look like I'm going to luck out with the weather - let's hope it stays nice. I'm sure I'll have more to say than anyone cares to hear when I get back haha.

Hi Mike,

I went on Miracle in May and it was the best eight days of my life, no joke. The ship is beautiful, the food is delicious, the staff is great. I'm so jealous...I wish I could go again right now. Enjoy!

that's the best news I could have asked for!

What were your favorite hang out areas of the ship? Anything I "must do"?

Hmm...trying to think.

We enjoyed Buster Freeze in the piano bar ó he's very sarcastic, so if you appreciate that kind of humor, he's entertaining and has a good voice. We also liked Music Boardwalk, which performed in Frankie & Johnnie's...they're four guys who do covers, and a lot of them were very good.

We got addicted to the art auctions on our last cruise, so we went to all of those. I never thought I'd be a person who liked that sort of thing, but it turns out I am! Even if you don't want to buy anything, it's fun to get free champagne and check out the art and hear about it and watch people compete in the bidding. I don't know if he's still on the Miracle, but the auctioneer when we went was Ram Glick from Israel, and he was hilarious! Other than that, we just ate a lot and relaxed.

Oh, and in San Juan, we hired a guy named Victor from Taxi Turistico for like $40 to take us around the island. We just found him at the pier and haggled with him. Best $40 I've ever spent. He took us all over and gave us a rundown on the history and showed us what he considered to be the highlights. He stopped wherever we wanted to to let us take pics, and he snapped photos of us. It was nice to not have to be at the mercy of a large tour and it was inexpensive.

As you can see, I could go on forever...

You know, Courtney, I was reading your post and the whole time I was thinking "this sounds so familiar" - the art auction thing in particular. Then I realized that I had read your review on Cruisereviews.com like 3 times haha.

So the art auctions are actually work it? I'm more into sports, and the bar, the pool and more "action" type stuff, but I'm always willing to try something new.

LOL That's funny!

I really enjoy them, and like I said, I didn't think I'd be into it that much. But I'm sure they're not for everyone. I found it interesting to learn a little about art, and Ram was hilarious. We bought a few things this time. People seemed to be less competitive during the Miracle auctions than they were on the Conquest. But if you feel like trying something new, it might be worth checking out. Even if you end up hating it, you do get free champagne!
