Aft pools on Princess are usually less crowded and a beautiful way to spend an afternoon.
I never met a pool I didn't like!
The only two Princess ships that actually have a dedicated "Sanctuary Pool" are island and coral and yes you do have to pay for those, they are situated in the Sanctuary. The other Sanctuary's are usually close to the pool by the Lotus Spa and are free.
