Default Trying to decide, Miracle or Freedom

So, for my almost 2 weeks off in November, I am looking at 2 options right now, either CCL Miracle or CCL Freedom out of Lauderdale on their respective 8n voyages. I've already seen a few discussions on here about Freedom, but was wondering if anyone had any comments on the Miracle. I've sailed on a Spirit Class before (Costa Atlantica) and really enjoyed the size of the ship, and the price for an obscured balcony on Miracle is only a wee bit more than a basic OV on Freedom. On Freedom, since there are less consecutive sea days, I know I will be okay with an OV. Miracle has 2 full days out and 2 back, so I am sure I can enjoy the veranda. Both itineraries interest me because they both include ports of call that I have not been to yet. Freedom visits St Thomas tho, which I loved, but I really want to return there for its own vacation more than a short port of call visit. Same for St Thomas.

Of course, the end result might come down to whomever I can get to sail with me and what days they can get off from work, but as of right now I'm flexible for both.

Past cruises:

Disney Dream - Dec 2013 4n Bahamas
Disney Dream - Dec 2012 4n Bahamas
Carnival Imagination - Dec 2011 4n Western
Carnival Imagination - Nov 2010 4n Western
Costa Atlantica - Dec 2009 7n Eastern

My opinions are mine and mine alone. They do not represent the opinions of The Walt Disney Company nor any of its subsidiaries.

I can only give you my 2 cents on the Freedom, Loved the ship, food and entertainment. 4 sea days would be a bit much for me,and the less consecutive would be a plus...Recently SeaMaster and RollerDonna, were not thrilled with things on the Miracle, so check out RD's repoers before you decide.

Trip, with her book & tea!

Default Freedom vs Miracle

I have been on both ships. Freedom is outstanding in evey way compared with Miracle which is just o.k.

Pro's of Freedom - Entertainment, food, lay out, Jumbo t.v screen on Lido, Great crew.

Pro's of Miracle - Less people.

I'm booked 6 days Nov 2011 on Freedom. Have a great cruise which ever one you choose. Ed
