Well I don't know. I have been on three Celebrity ships, Century, Galaxy and Millennium. Century and Galaxy always had something going on at the pool, either a band playing or activities. So when we were bored we could always go to the pool for something lively. My wife and I are very sedate for being in our early thirties but the quiet time on Millennium was too often in my opinion (everyday for 5 hrs???). Especially when you consider that the thalllossotharapy pool is an always quiet time area. I don't think the pool area needs to be the library as there are many places on the ship that are quiet.
