Carnival miracle – itinerary schedule, current position cruisemapper electricity history in india

Launched in 2004, Carnival Miracle is the last of four Spirit-class Carnival ships, together with Carnival Legend, Spirit and Pride. Miracle’s building cost is US$375 million. The ship was last refurbished in 2015. History – construction & ownership

The shipowner Carnival Cruise Lines is an American company headquartered in Doral, Florida. It was founded as an independent company by Ted Arison in 1972. Today, it is one of the 9 cruise ship brands owned and operated by Carnival Corp. & plc. The line has the largest fleet in the whole Carnival group of cruise companies, with 24 ships currently in operation, and accounting for 21.1% of the cruise industry’s worldwide market.

The 85,942-ton, 2,124-passenger Spirit Class cruise ship Carnival Miracle and her Spirit-class sisters represented some significant firsts for Carnival: amazing alternative steakhouses found on each Carnival new-build thereafter and onboard wedding chapels. Spirit-class cruise ships also offer an awesome 80 % ratio of outside cabins, as well as lots of nice little touches – such as museum-quality artwork and "designer" martinis. Cruise itinerary program

Most Carnival Miracle staterooms are 185-sq.foot insides (213), oceanview (167) and balcony (632, with verandas of 40-85 sq.feet). There are also 50 Suites and 16 wheelchair accessible cabins, but no Spa accommodations. Suites include separate sitting areas, refrigerators, spa bathtubs (whirlpools), double sinks and large balconies with two tables, sun loungers and sitting chairs. Extra services for suite guests include priority embarkation and disembarkation. Dining options – Food & Drinks

Carnival Miracle’s main restaurant for dinner is the Bacchus Dining Room, which is named after the Greek god of wine. There is only one dining room on all Spirit-class ships, while even older Carnival ships feature two main restaurants. However, the two-deck high Bacchus easily accommodates all guests in two seatings or on a flexible basis, via "Your Choice Dining" program. Nick & Nora’s, situated under the skylight in Carnival’s red funnel, offers unforgettable dinner that is worth the $30 charge considering the exquisite atmosphere, extra-attentive service and the quality of the meals. Horatio’s lido buffet is a one-level restaurant boasting full breakfast and lunch buffets. It is also a casual dinner alternative and late-night bistro. A sushi cart is set up each afternoon outside of Maguire’s Bar with rotating options like shrimp, assorted rolls and salmon, all free of charge. Sake is also available, unfortunately not complimentary.

Still, Joe Farcus always has a theme, and Carnival Miracle’s is "fictional icons" – passenger hallways feature drawings of popular literary characters such as Robin Hood and Robinson Crusoe (and the more darken Belgian detective Hercule Poirot). The lobby and atrium are called after the Metropolis of "Superman" fame, and there is also a Gotham lounge, which gets its name from "Batman".

The 3-level main show lounge on Carnival Miracle is fashioned after "The Phantom of the Opera" and Paris Opera House. The elaborate production shows include a high-energy popular music medley from the last decades, called "Legends", as well as a Beatles-themed production. Frankenstein’s Lab is ship’s 2-deck disco. It received new carpeting and furniture as part of the recent refurbishment.

• Miracle’s maiden voyage started on February 27, 2004. Her staterooms with ocean view are 80%, and the ones with private balconies are 80% of those. The vessel has a unique 11-story Metropolis atrium. Its ceiling is made of ruby-red glass and a big picture of a movie or a famous character, Long John Silver for example, is next to each room.

• The Carnival Miracle ship’s interior design theme is "fictional icons" (done by Joe Farcus). There are drawings of the famous Robinson Crusoe, Robin Hood and Hercule Poirot. Miracle’s cruise passengers can visit the Gotham Lounge – a name taken from the Batman movie. On board there are a wedding chapel and alternative steakhouse. In January 2012 the Miracle ship was refurbished and more trendy Carnival’s features were added, like the Serenity adult deck.

• There was a plan for the Miracle ship to be deployed to Asia in spring 2017 for round-trip cruises from China (year-round Shanghai port departures). However, this decision was revised, so Miracle stays in North America. According to the Carnival’s’ current ship deployment schedule, the Carnival Asia-based ships will be Carnival Splendor (repositioned from Miami Florida to China in spring 2018) and Carnival Spirit (during 2017-2018 winter season only). Both ships will be home-ported in Shanghai China.

• As part of the "Carnival Journeys" itinerary program (offering longer enrichment themed itineraries), in 2017 (September 2-16) Carnival Miracle had scheduled a 14-days Alaskan cruise roundtrip from Los Angeles (Long Beach) CA. This is Carnival’s ever first roundtrip Alaskan itinerary. It also included the company’s maiden visit to Icy Strait Point and a full-day passing through Glacier Bay. The list of scheduled onboard activities included Alaska-themed cultural and culinary events and themed seminars (photography, arts, crafts, cooking, celestial navigation). The list of Alaskan shore excursion included hiking, sea kayaking, canoeing, helicopter flightseeing tours, lake snorkeling. Next is shown the itinerary’s ports of call (dates and times).
