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?

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.

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.
