Trip Report Good Experience on Carnival or A Caribbean Quest for Undershorts

Jump to last reply

My father and I just got back from a ten day Eastern Caribbean cruise on the Miracle, and mostly enjoyed it. The seas were very rough and we did not enjoy that, and there were aspects of Carnival that my dad wasn't crazy about.

We left New York on the sixth, and were a little late out of port due to a medical emergency. We were also trying to avoid an east coast storm, and the ship started to bounce a lot within the first couple of hours. We would have liked to walk around the ship, but it was rough enough that I was afraid my father was going to fall. By the way, the Carnival people were extremely helpful with his mobility issues throughout the trip.

We were actually pitching so much in the night that the drawers in our cabin were opening and closing by themselves, and you could occasionally hear things crashing or falling. It was still rough in the morning, but not as bad. The outside decks were closed, but we felt able to move around as long as he was careful.
