I have not actually been on either, yet. Liberty coming up. But my daughter has been on both, but not as crew on the Miracle, She said it was very nice. I havn't seen any downside to either that was specific to the ship.
If you want a Panama cruise I don't think the Liberty is an option. It is a Conquest Class and is to wide for the Canal. The Miracle is the newest Carnival Ship that will fit. My daughter was crew on the Spirit and passed thru the canal both ways. She was not impressed, boring, and they had to work extra hard to keep the passengers happy and busy. She just hates hosting BINGO and it was bingo every day.
