Default Pooling around:)

Are you still enjoying the pool deck on your cruises? With all we know about getting overexposed by the sun's rays, doyou still enjoy sitting around and baking, reading & snoozing, or have you abandoned it all together?

Do all the new "fun" slides, rope walks, & the bells and whistles interest you?

One of the nicest pools I remember was on NCL Seaward..it had a nice deep sitting area around the pool..loved that...Prettiest, or most enjoyable pool for you?

Trip, with her book & tea!

I still try to do the slides and we usually hit the aft pool a few times per cruise. Did the rope course on our last sailing.

Oh we bake away - a week during the cruise is a risk I am willing to take.

These days, that is the only time I may be in the sun, but be smart and use a high sun screen. There is nothing quite like being on a beautiful cruiseship and relaxing by the pool with a good book.

Yes, I enjoy the pool and like to bake in the sun. Always have a tan in the warm months since I swim and sit around our pool daily.

Experiences over the years enabled me to have all the answers, but not necessarily corresponding with your questions.

Actually we prefer our balcony to sit at and bake in the sun. We do occasionally use the aft pool and hot tubs.

I have a tan all year long, since I moved to Florida. When I cruise I spend some time in the sun but not as much as used to. Because I get sun all year long.
