Carnival Cruise Line has modified the schedule of an upcoming cruise on Carnival Miracle due to an unanticipated issue with the ship, according to a statement the line provided to Travel Agent.
As a result, the Carnival Miracle will remain docked in Tampa from Sunday, May 27, until Tuesday, May 29, in order to complete necessary work.
Guests will receive a $200 onboard credit and a two-day, pro-rated refund of their cruise fare. Guests also have the option to cancel and receive a full refund, or reschedule with no penalty, Carnival said.
Carnival said it will also offer a complimentary Carnival LIVE concert by CMA award-winning country artist Tim Rushlow for guests onboard, as well as other entertainment. The cruise line will also provide complimentary roundtrip shuttle service to nearby attractions in Tampa during the two days the ship is in port.
Carnival Miracle sails six- and seven-day cruises to the Caribbean from the Port of Tampa, as well as eight-day voyages that include a partial transit of the Panama Canal. The ship underwent a “Fun Ship 2.0” dry dock in 2015 that added a number of amenities, including new food and beverage venues like the RedFrog Pub and Alchemy Bar, as well as family-friendly offerings like a Seuss At Sea area and Hasbro, The Game Show.
