Carnival Miracle
 
I have booked the Carnival Miracle on an Alaskan cruise next September. Any tips on the ship? I have been on the Spirit twice so I am sure they are similar.

Thanks,
Kathy

The ship is a wonderful ship! No real secrets that I can think of. I hope you enjoy your cruise. We are also looking to go to Alaska next year but are torn between a 7 day round trip cruise and a one way land/cruise tour, which Carnival does not offer.

We've been on the Miracle and its sister ship, the Pride. Funny thing was, we didn't like the Miracle, but we did like the Pride.

They're nice ships, just don't like the way they laid out. But it's also funny how you can sail on the same ship and get completely different experiences. So while it may have been good one time, doesn't mean it'll be the same the next or vice versa. Crews are constantly changing, which will sometimes dramatically impact the experience. We once sailed on the same ship three times and the first two times we were not impressed, but the third time we had a wonderful experience - crew had changed, ship had been refurbished, and a new captain was in charge - completely different than the other two sailings.

Sorry, didn't mean to get off the subject. The Miracle is a nice ship and you'll enjoy your cruise, especially because it's to Alaska, which is an amazing destination.

We were on the Miracle last November and it went into refit shortly after. We really liked the ship. We really liked the Atrium Bar and how it was laid out. There is only one dining room and it gets a bit noisy. Buffet was less than stellar food and seating wise.
