									    CARNIVAL MIRACLE TO OFFER NEW EIGHT-DAY EASTERN CARIBBEAN
              ITINERARY OPTION FROM NEW YORK IN 2009

     MIAMI (April 2, 2008) — Carnival Cruise Lines has added a new eight-day eastern
Caribbean cruise option from New York aboard the 2,124-passenger Carnival Miracle featuring
port calls to Grand Turk, Turks & Caicos; the private island of Half Moon Cay; and Nassau, The
Bahamas.

     The new cruise route will be offered approximately once a month from May through
September 2009 and will complement the ship’s existing eastern Caribbean cruise schedule from
New York featuring stops at San Juan, Puerto Rico; St. Thomas, U.S.V.I., and Tortola, British
Virgin Islands.

      “We’re always seeking exciting and attractive itinerary choices for our guests and the
Carnival Miracle’s new eight-day cruise option combines the opportunity to visit three
distinctively different tropical destinations with the convenience of departing from New York,
one of America’s great cities,” said Lynn C. Torrent, Carnival’s senior vice president of sales and
guest services.

     One of the Caribbean’s newest ports, Grand Turk has quickly earned the reputation as a
guest favorite. In addition to numerous historic attractions and palm tree-lined powdery beaches,
Grand Turk is considered one of the world’s best spots for snorkeling and scuba diving. Cruises
stop at the new Grand Turk Cruise Center, which features an 800-foot-long private beach, a
swimming pool, and the Caribbean’s largest Margaritaville themed restaurant.

    Named Best Private Island by “Porthole Cruise Magazine” for four consecutive years, Half
Moon Cay offers a variety of exciting activities to choose from while exploring this privately
owned paradise. Guests can enjoy horseback riding through the sand and surf, visit the Half
Moon Lagoon Aqua Park, hike on the nature trail or simply relax in a private beachfront cabana.

     The Bahamian capital of Nassau is an idyllic place with stretches of white-sand beaches and
warm, turquoise waters teeming with marine life. In addition to a multitude of water-based
options, guests can spend the day shopping for duty-free gifts or take a carriage ride past the
city’s historic pastel-colored buildings.

     Carnival Miracle offers a host of on-board facilities and features: 16 lounges and bars, four
swimming pools, an expansive 13,500-square-foot Spa Carnival facility, indoor and outdoor
promenades, a wedding chapel, ship-wide Wi-Fi Internet access and cell phone service. Dining
options include a two-level formal restaurant, a 1,200-seat casual poolside eatery with a 24-hour
pizzeria, and an elegant reservations-only supper club.
      Three different youth programs – “Camp Carnival” for ages 2-11, “Circle C” for 12- to 14-
year-olds, and “Club O2” for older teens – with facilities, activities and counselors specific to
their age group are included, as well.

     Carnival Miracle also offers hundreds of staterooms with private balconies – perfect for
scenic Caribbean cruising. The ship also offers a variety of accommodation categories, all of
which feature the Carnival Comfort Bed sleep system, with plush mattresses, luxurious duvets
and high quality linens and pillows.
