Carnival Takes Miracle Delivery

February 10, 2004
Mark your calendar: the next-new-ship-on-the-horizon is on its way. Carnival Cruise Lines has accepted delivery of its 88,500-ton, 2,124-passenger Carnival Miracle during handover ceremonies in Helsinki at Kvaerner Masa-Yards. Carnival Miracle is the line's the 20th "Fun Ship." Following a 14-day transatlantic crossing, Carnival Miracle will head for Jacksonville. The 12-deck Carnival Miracle is the last in the line of Carnival Cruise Line's Spirit-class ships, and features a fun interior theme that focuses on fabulous fictional icons from movies, books and music. Carnival Miracle will make its debut from Jacksonville on February 27; the ship will be named by former Army private Jessica Lynch before departing on its inaugural voyage, a three day sailing. Carnival Miracle will operate three-, five- and six-night departures from Jacksonville through April 17, followed by a series of seven night cruises from Baltimore and New York through the fall. The ship will then reposition to Tampa to launch year-round seven-night Caribbean cruises Nov. 7, 2004, becoming that port's newest and largest cruise ship.
