The week we sailed on the Miracle it definetly was not the the "party hardy" crowd. The ship is nicely decorated and has a "rich" feel to it. She is a beauty. I guess you would also have to base your decision on which itinerary you want . We chose the Miracle not for her itinerary but because she is a brand new ship. Good luck with making your decision. When are you going on the cruise? I would sail the Miracle again in a heart beat.
