To each his own but after 40 + cruises I have yet to get in a pool and if I did it would only because I accidentally fell into one.
Bruce, in my mind, is fairly accurate as to what the pools are so I tend to stay away. I can swim in a pool at home and not have to worry about it being
used by several thousands of people in the last couple of weeks , regardless of where they're from.
But as I said, to each his / her own thing.
