Default Does the Carnival Miracle have a basketball court?

Does the Carnival Miracle have a basketball court? If so is it full court?

They have a wide half-court if that makes sense. They easily have enough space for it to be full court, but last week there was just one net in the middle.

When I went on last New Years, the net over the court was too low to shoot the ball.

Carnival has a tendency to put their basketball courts in the stupidest places then design them the stupidest ways which is why most of their ships just eliminate them after a while (like the Fantasy class). The structure around the court is usually 12' tall with an 8' (guess) basket which leaves little margin to make a long shot. On the flip side, the courts are usually well hidden so you can claim your space early as it usually takes people a good day or so to find them.

Literally a week and a half ago when I was on Carnival Miracle, the one hoop did look about as high as a normal outdoor hoop.

To get to it, go to the terrace whatever area by the pools where they have all the sunbathing lounge deck chairs. Go forward and you'll see stairs going up, you'll want to go up I don't remember if it's one or two decks, but it's as high as you can go, and it's surrounded by mini-golf.

Here's a pic I found online of it.
