Default Carnival Miracle - Wraparound Aft Question.....

Hi there - I have a quick question regarding the wraparound balconies on the Carnival Miracle. I saw a picture on community webshots (see link below) where there is a shower nozzle on the Carnival Pride balconies. Just wondering if anyone has ever stayed in a wraparound aft on the Miracle and whether there is a shower nozzle on it? Just thought that would be nice to have the nozzle to cool down if you're on out on the balcony getting some sun.

I never used mine.

I figured if I really wanted to hose down, I'd use the bathroom shower.

I imagine that was really put out there to hose down the deck, not the cattle.

Looks more like a nozzel from the fire control sprinkler system than a shower head.

I wonder where the knob is to turn it on. *scratches head* It does sort of look like fire sprinklers so me.

Peter,

I'm curious about this. I've been scouring the net for information on this with no luck. Is this one of those unique hidden features? How did you turn the thing on? Did it have just cold water? Iquiring minds want to know please.

Here is what the picture taker said ...

"Carnival Pride Aft Cabin 4228 -Shower nozzle on balcony
If you look behind the door, you will see a nozzle. When it got hot on the balcony, we were able to use this to cool down. Notice how the door is open. This door stayed open without using a bungee cord or a wedgie."

There appears to be a push type valve in the front of the pipe. Looks like the ones in some restrooms.

I also think this is a fire sprinkler. The push type valve is probably to check to see if it's working. I don't think it's meant to be used to "cool down" .
