Carnival Miracle 9/11 Tribute in NYC September 14, 2011 Hate to think this was just a PR ploy but pretty spectacular shots of Miracle leaving NYC September 11, 2011. Carnival-News.com One Response Howard Graham September 27, 2011 Hello I can assure you this was not a Ploy by Carnival. My name is Howard Graham and I and the rest of our group had requested this delayed sailing in Honor of the Men and Women who lost their lives on this tragic day. CArnival did not advertise this event nor make any preliminary notices about the delayed departure except to our Group and thos on John Healsd Blog and Facebook. We are so proud of what they did and grateful for this once in a lifetime event.
