Carnival Miracle

Carnival Miracle is a ship that transports you to a realm of wonder, both through its magnificent destinations and its onboard spaces inspired by elements of fantasy. Immerse yourself in an enchanting show at the Phantom Lounge, or perhaps, enjoy a refreshing drink at the Odyssey Bar. Lose yourself in the melodies at Sam’s Piano Bar or dance the night away at Dr. Frankenstein’s Lab. Satisfy your appetite at the elegant Bacchus Dining Room, relish the gourmet delights at Nick and Nora’s Steakhouse, or opt for a more casual dining experience at Horatio’s Restaurant, which derives its name and nautical ambiance from a C.S. Forester novel.

The Alchemy Bar is an artistic haven for crafting exceptional drinks, while the relaxed atmosphere of the RedFrog Pub exudes a Caribbean vibe. If you’re seeking a fun-in-the-sun adventure, the ship has it all, whether it’s sliding down the exhilarating Twister Waterslide or lounging for a sun-kissed glow. Carnival Miracle caters to both kids and adults, offering Club Ocean for the youngsters and the serene Serenity retreat for adults, ensuring that everyone has their own space to relax.

Carnival goes the extra mile by providing more spacious staterooms than many other cruise lines, and most of the rooms on Carnival Miracle grant you breathtaking ocean views.

Carnival Miracle Overview

Carnival Miracle is a ship that might seem too extraordinary to be true, but it’s a sight to behold that you shouldn’t miss. When we say that Carnival Miracle whisks you away to another world, we mean it in every sense. The ship not only voyages to awe-inspiring destinations but also features exceptional onboard venues inspired by elements of fantasy. Escape from the ordinary as you watch a captivating performance at the Phantom Lounge or dance the night away at Dr. Frankenstein’s Lab. For those who want to lose themselves in music, the enchanting melodies at Sam’s Piano Bar await. If you’re in the mood for a delectable meal, you’ll find a range of culinary delights, from the laid-back Horatio’s to the artful feasts at the Bacchus and Ariadne dining rooms. And don’t forget the mouthwatering steaks at Nick & Nora’s Steakhouse.

At the Alchemy Bar®, drinks are transformed into works of art, and the casual yet “Caribbean cool” ambiance at the RedFrog Pub™ is an experience in itself. The SkyBox™ Sports Bar combines the comfort of a luxury box with a front-row view of the action. Outdoors, the ship offers a host of thrilling activities, whether you’re up for waterslides or simply sunbathing — Carnival WaterWorks™ has it all (in water, of course). Meanwhile, the Serenity Adult-Only Retreat™ provides a tranquil space for grown-up relaxation, whether you prefer the sun or the shade.

Regardless of your age, don’t forget to end your day on a sweet note with a treat from Cherry On Top™, the onboard candy-and-more store.
