the aft pool? For all my 20 plus cruises, I have always sat by the main pool..no question, that was just where we went. We wanted to be where the action is.... but, on the Conquest, when I hosted the cruise, we had our first get together there, and I fell in love, with the aft pool area.
If the ship you are on has this secret jewel, check it out, and you may fall in love too. Everthing we needed was, right there for us in a calming quiet area. Snooze, read , take a dip, or just look at the ships wake...I bet it gets you too!
So, are you a main pool devotee, or an aft pool newbie like me?
What are your experiences at the pool..good bad or are you NOT a pool lover at all?

Main pool for me I like to be where all the action is.

Panorama deck aft is the best place to watch the wake and get some fresh air.....I do agree, the aft pool area is quiet and a good place to just kick back and chill.....can't say as I tried the pool or whirlpool...

The aft pool area on Conquest class ships in nice and much quieter and the roof can even be closed to cover the pool in inclement weather. A lot of folks don't know about the Fish and Chips area on the Conquest class either. Just go up one deck from the last buffet area aft ship for great fish and chips. They also serve bouilliabase (sp) and other seafood up there.
On the ships that don't have this pool, we always try to find a nice quiet area on the aft of the ship on our last sea day afternoon for a nice nap to rest up before we go home.
