Am I the only one who LIKES pools but avoids them on cruise ships??
Actually I don't like pools on ships or at anyones house for that matter...instead of laying at the pool I would rather sit in the Library and read a good book or magazine that I brought with me or sit on the Veranda. I always booked a Veranda on all cruises...the Crystal cruise in december will be no different.
