Carnival Miracle

A Miracle in the making ... with balconies galore

Carnival Miracle, which joined the fleet in April 2004, is sixth in the Spirit class series which set a new standard for balconied accommodations.

Balconied staterooms have become a much sought after amenity with today’s passengers and the task was to meet that demand in the design. In designing a more narrow superstructure, one more deck with passenger staterooms could be added. In the superstructure most of the staterooms face the sea.

The relative number of outside passenger staterooms and staterooms with balcony is very high; 80 per cent of all the staterooms are outside staterooms and 70 per cent of all the staterooms have a balcony.

In all, Carnival Miracle features 12 passenger decks plus four decks below for machinery and crew spaces, and the first thing that greets you is the towering ten-deck Metropolis Atrium.
