Carnival Miracle's rooms are simple, yet comfortable and clean, with flat-screen TV's, phones, complimentary bathrobes and stocked mini-bars. Anything consumed from the mini bars, which offer alcohol, sodas and energy drinks, will cost you an extra fee.

Housekeeping will bring ice to your room as often as you prefer. They'll also clean your room and make the bed in the morning, and provide turn-down service at night; this includes the famous towel animals (our favorite was a monkey hanging from the ceiling), chocolates and a copy of the Fun Times.


These units are small, with two twin beds that can easily be converted to a king bed. They have a desk and chair, three closets and a small bathroom with a shower. They're suitable for mom and dad, but not for an entire family.

Ocean View

Ocean View rooms are almost identical to Interior rooms, but offer a window. They include two twin beds that can convert to a king bed, a desk and chair, three closets and a small bathroom with a shower.


Each unit includes two twin beds that convert to a king bed, a small bathroom with a shower, a vanity area with a large mirror and a sofa with a coffee table.

These units are more expensive than standard Interior and Ocean View rooms, but they're well worth the cost. The balconies, which offer two chairs and a small table, provide a peaceful retreat. While the kids are at Camp Carnival, drink champagne and watch the sun set over the sea. The balconies are generally childproof (with high, concrete-filled railings), but supervision is obviously advised when the kids want to explore this part of the room. Balconies come in slightly different sizes (standard, extended and premium), and some feature an ocean view, while others offer an obstructed view.

It's worth noting there is only one outlet in each Balcony room. Well, technically, there are two, but one is a European outlet. There's also an outlet near the ceiling in the bathroom, but it's low-voltage and designated for shavers only.


Suites come in four different variations: Junior, Grand, Ocean and Vista. Each style is generally similar, though the Grand and Ocean suites have large balconies, and the Vista has a wrap-around balcony. In each suite, two twin beds convert to a king bed. Suites feature full bathrooms with showers, Whirlpool tubs and double sinks, as well as sofas, armchairs, coffee tables, walk-in dressing areas, vanity tables and two closets.
