We returned yesterday from the Western Caribbean. The ship & crew were outstanding & the food was great!! We were very pleased with the whole debarking service, very quick & efficient. We could have taken our own luggage off when returning to Tampa, but a tanker was stuck in the channel so we had to get off at a different pier & they had to take our luggage & transport everyone by bus to the terminal, but it was well organized. Bad weather due to a Tropical depression caused us to eleminate Costa Maya & the waters were rough. We also had to devert back to Cozumel due to medical emergency. This was the first time any cruise ships had returned to Cozumel in 3 weeks & the tender service was horrible...they were not ready to handle this situation & we hope they improve the system. The pier is gone but they told us it will be re-built in a few months, otherwise, Cozumel is still a mess & it took longer for people to get off & return. Wait till you get off to book a shore excursion...they were so desperate that the trips were dirt cheap where booking it on line or on the ship was expensive. All in all the ship was beautiful & very professional. I wouldn't hesitate booking with Carnival again. We have cruised with Celebrity & we found this much nicer. If you have any questions, let me know. (Yup...got sun poisoning too, so pack on the lotion!!) Deanie

We're going on Miracle 12/25. Overall I have heard good things about this ship. A friend of mine just returned to Charleston, SC after sailing on the Majesty. They went to Cozumel and said that the ferry service was pretty quick. I guess you just never know exactly what quirks you will encounter on a cruise. Sounds like you had a few though!! How was your cabin? We're booked in an extended balcony on the one of the upper decks. Thanks for the info.

Hi...Our room was great & the shower was awesome. We had a balcony...always get one. The extended ones are ok, but not necessary. We were in rm 5193...loved it. The tender service in Cozumel as I said was BAD! But they should have it straightened out soon. LOVED the ship & will return to Carnival...enjoy your trip!! Deanie

Thanks for the info on the Miracle. We are leaving on 12/18 out of Tampa returning 12/25. First crusing experience and I am taking my 82 y/o mother. Any ideas on excursions for an 82 year old?

Thanks.

Hi...when you get on board they will have a lunch waiting for everyone...enjoy. Then go to the Shore Excursion desk on deck 2 (easy to find)and ask them for their advice...they'll be able to help. Let me know how you enjoy your cruise..I'm sure you will. Deanie (If you have any other questions let me know)
