Default Height requirement for water slide


We will be sailing on the Miracle in April with our 5 year old. Does anyone know what the height requirement is to be able to use the slide?

It's 42 inches. Just went this past fall. My older son is 47 inches he was able to and my younger son was 38 inches, he lost out.

We were on the Legend in October and my son then was 3. He was probably 39 inches at the time (big for his age). They allowed him on it. He loved it. The slide on the Legend doesn't drain into a pool so maybe that makes a difference. We were on the Fantasy 2 weeks ago without the kids and I think the sign said 48 inches but it drains into a fairly deep pool.

needgreen: You say you were on the Legend and your son (39 in at the time) was able to use it, we are going on the Legends sister ship Miracle so I'm assuming the slide set up is the same, right??? My daughter is so excited about the slide, for some reason I thought I better check about height requirements, this way is she can't go on it I can break the news to her now and not when she is about to climb up the ladder and is told she can't go.

I have been wondering the same question . We were on the Triumph last year and my son was too short. I told him if he ate his vegetables he would grow to be 42" and go this year. We are going on the Inspiration. I called quite a few people at Carnival and were told different things. The last lady told me 48" for all of the slides and she knew that because her son has been wanting to go and she says she is going to wait until he is 48" I relly hope she is wrong.

I think the height is 42" if it doesn't "dump" into a pool, if the slide "dumps" into the pool it is 48".

When we were on the Legend in December the slide was only open one day the kids were really bummed out. They didnt even have it open on port days.
