Themed cafes, restaurants and lounges abound on this ship. Fans of "Casablanca" will enjoy Sam's, a Moroccan-inspired piano bar, while literature lovers will want to stroll through Gatsby's Garden, an indoor promenade with trellises, wooden tables and a pebble-lined path, designed to resemble the front porch of Gatsby's house in F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1925 novel. Restaurants include the formal Bacchus Dining Room, Nick and Nora's Steakhouse, and Horatio's Restaurant – a casual eatery that takes its name and nautical theme from a C.S. Forester novel. Enjoy a Las Vegas-style revue at the Phantom Lounge or dance the night away at Dr. Frankenstein's Lab, a bi-level dance club. Those who want to relax can read in the Raven Library or lounge by one of the ship's four pools. Younger travelers will appreciate the spiral water slide on the Sports Deck, as well as Wizards, the ship's arcade room. Carnival prides itself on offering larger staterooms than other cruise lines, and 80 percent of the rooms on the Miracle provide ocean views. All rooms include private shower facilities, telephones, closets and TVs that show first-run films.
