THE MAD HATTER’S BALL AND OTHER VENUES
Carnival Miracle features a variety of dramatic public spaces inspired by famous fictional icons and designed by Carnival’s award-winning interior architect Joe Farcus. Inspired by characters from novels, songs, poems, myths, movies and Broadway, these fabulous fictional icons were chosen for their styles that evoke a different mood in each of the Carnival Miracle’s public areas and rooms.
Venues include Dr. Frankenstein’s Lab, a two-level dance club patterned after the legendary creature and his creator; the Mad Hatter’s Ball, a show lounge that pays homage to the playful Alice in Wonderland character; and the Phantom Theater, which resembles the Paris Opera House, where much of the famous Broadway musical takes place. Other rooms include Sam’s, inspired by the watering hole in the classic film Casablanca; the Raven Library, patterned after the classic Edgar Allen Poe novel; and the Gotham Lounge, which takes its cue from the metropolis made famous in the popular Batman comic books.
Dining is considered by many to be the highlight of a Fun Ship cruise and Carnival Miracle offers a wide variety of delectable formal and casual choices to suit any mood or taste.
In addition to the full-service two-level Bacchus dining room featuring extensive menus and wine lists, Carnival Miracle includes Horatio’s, a casual poolside eatery offering full breakfast and lunch buffets, a 24-hour pizzeria, a New York-style deli, Asian and American specialty areas, and a “Seaview Bistro” alternative dinner-time service. Carnival Miracle also houses Nick & Nora’s, a reservation-recommended steakhouse. Vegetarian, children’s and health-conscious menu selections will also be featured on all dining room menus. A sushi bar, patisserie and complimentary 24-hour stateroom service will also be available.
Carnival Miracle offers organized programs for three different age groups – Camp Carnival for 2- to 11-year-olds, Circle C for 12- to 14-year-olds, and Club O2 for 15- to 17-year-olds – with supervised activities and expansive, modern facilities for each group. Carnival Miracle also houses four swimming pools, including a children’s wading pool and an aft pool with a twisting, turning water slide.
