Last month I sailed to St Kitts and St Lucia.
In St Kitts I enthusiastically recommend any tour going to Brimstone Hill Fortress > That place is an impressive site with an interesting history. It was built in between 1690 and 1736. The mountain fell in battle from the French to the British in 1690, the French captured the fort in 1782, but the the British retook it in 1783. From atop this castle, one can see the islands of Montserrat, Nevis, Saba, St Eustatia, St Barth's, and St Maarten.
While in St Lucia I took Carnival's "Best views of St Lucia" which was a lot of fun.

Also in St. Kitts - the sugar cane train ride. Any scenic tour of St Lucia should be good. In St Maarten be sure to visit both sides (Dutch & French) - they really are culturally different.

It's a Spirit class similar to the Legend which I was on in 2006. That's my favorite class of the "fun ship" fleet. Not as big as some and the layout is more logical. If the Miracle is anything like the Legend, it's a bit more elegant than some others.
Carnival Miracle= built 2004 ( newest of Spirit class), size is 88,500 tons, 2,124 pax double occupancy, 930 crew, one dining room, ship built so it can transit the Panama canal, 959.6 feet long, beam of 105.6, draft of 25.5 feet., 12 passenger decks.
