Sailing on the Miracle in August. Have been on the Liberty and the Freedom. Would appreciate any info on how the Miracle differs from the bigger mega ships. Anyone had a Cat. 11 on this ship? and if so, how was it?

we are taking our second trip on the miracle on july 27th. we did the same cruise last summer. we are veterns of over 20 carnival cruises.
the miracle is our favorite ship because it is not to small or to large.
Large ships are to crowded and small ships lack some of the amenities,
this is just right. Of course the fact that we can drive to the pier and stay out of the airport is the biggest plus. You will love it...........

If you don't have a sensitivity to nudity in artwork, then you will really enjoy the Miracle. The art isn’t subtle and is often prominently placed, like on the doors to the aft dining room. If you enjoy beautiful, classic style art, the ship is a fine showcase for it.

I didn’t notice any lack of amenities or services but the crowds were smaller and the passage ways less congested. The ship has a higher ratio of balconies so the balconies are generally priced lower than on some of the other ships. Be aware there are two types of balcony cabins on most decks.

Extended Balcony – The balcony is a little bigger measured from the wall to the rail, but the rooms are inset into the side of the ship. When you look down you see more of the lifeboats than you see when you look down from the regular balcony. Also there is a slight obstruction fore and aft caused by the rooms that are not inset.

Regular Balcony – The rooms are not inset so the balcony and view are much the same as on other ships.

The rooms are well designed so there wasn’t a lot of noise transmitted from room to room or from the hallway but we were on the Panorama Deck and picked up a lot of noise from the pool area on the Lido deck. You could also hear the Lido deck music on our balcony, but you won't hear it on the balconies of any of the decks lower than the Panorama.
