Carnival Miracle -- with former soldier Jessica Lynch, captured and recovered in Iraq, as Godmother -- has an 11-story Metropolis atrium with a ruby-red glass ceiling, an indoor / outdoor promenade, four swimming pools, and a water slide. A dining venue on the top level of the ship's atrium -- one of three restaurants on board -- is the only reservations-style supper club at sea offering prime beef. Sixteen lounges and bars with dramatic interiors celebrate famous fictional icons of film, music and literature, and a comprehensive golf program offers tips from pros aboard ship and during golf excursions. Some 80 percent of staterooms have ocean views and 80 percent of those have balconies. Carnival Miracle's lobby and atrium are named after the Metropolis of Superman fame, while the lower promenade is the Fountainhead, from the Ayn Rand novel, whose main character is an idealistic architect. The upper promenade is called Kane's Way from Orson Wells' film Citizen Kane. Gatsby's garden has long arches that look
like cast iron trelliswork.
