Planning a cruise and the itinerary we want has 4 ships to choose from - Triumph, Glory, Freedom and Miracle.
We went on the Valor this year and are looking for something a bit different than the same layout (we did have a great time and the ship was beautiful).
I know all the ships decor is different but I just don't want to feel like I am on the same ship with the same pool at the same casino (You get the picture)
Any suggestions would be appreciated - Thanks !!!

Glory and Freedom are very similar to Valor. Triumph is a little smaller (101,000 tons rather than 110,000 tons) but a lot of the deck plan will look somewhat familiar. Miracle is a totally different class of ship and will be laid out completely different. It's 88,500 tons.
I would say to give the Miracle a try. The spirit-class ships are my favorite in the Carnival fleet. Though smaller, I actually prefer their overall layout and design much better than the larger Conquest class (Glory, Valor, etc.)

I too agree with JaxGuy. Give "Miracle" a go. It's really a GREAT ship, and the crew, entertainment and everything else about "Miracle" was great. In fact, I liked it so much the last time I sailed her, I booked her again for '08, and thought about booking her again this summer, but just figured out that she's sailing out of New York for the summer season. Guess I'll have to wait until December to enjoy her again.
We have sailed on the Glory, Valor and the Miracle. The Glory and the Valor are like twins. We had a great time on the Miracle. If you want something a little different from the Valor I would say try the Miracle.
