Default Water slide pools

I was wondering what the depth of the pool is as you get to the bottom of the water slide? My 7yo DS is only 4 ft. tall and doesn't like it if he can't standup in a pool. Not sure which ship I am going on yet, it may all depend on the answer to this question.

The water slide on the Carnival Spirit does not end in a pool. From what I have read this is typical, so your son shouldn't have a problem.

When we were on the Conquest, the slide ended with a long straight piece, it did not go into the pool. But I have seen pictures of a few others that do enter the pool at the end.

We were on the Inspiration and as I recall the water was a litte higher than my ten year old's waist.

On the newer class chips such as Spirit, Destiny, Conquest the slide ends in a trough and not in the pool. On the Fantasy Class ships and the older ones it drops into a pool that is about 4/5 feet deep.

I can't remember specifically, but my not-so-great swimmer @ 10 year old had no problems with the water slide into pool on Inspiratin. The Conquest had a HUGE water slide and as mentioned before, it just stops at the end.

On the Carnival Glory, the water slide ends in a trough. Basically, you are just sitting in a litle bit of water. Kids had to be 42 inches tall to ride it. I think the biggest problem was probably waiting in line behind all of us adults!

The Fascination was 4/5 feet deep... I am thinking it was closer to 5 ft.
