It is small (not nearly as big as an in-ground pool). It is drained every night for two reasons: To scrub it down, and to keep little kids, drunk passengers, and anyone else from falling in. They put a net-like thing over it when it's empty. It's not just the Jubilee...most other ships do this, too. There are no lifeguards, and the pool is not very deep. Most ships use sea-water to fill the pools because: it's there. Much of the salt is removed, and chlorine is added, but it's still sea water. Ships have their own de-salination devices to provide fresh water for showering, cleaning, tap water, etc. It is expensive to de-salinate, and ship's pools use hundreds of gallons a day. Cheaper to use sea-water. Hot tubs have fresh water. There are some ships on HAL and Princess (and probably a few others) that have fresh-water pools. On the Jubilee, there will be an outdoor freshwater shower so you can rinse off. Think hundreds of bodies in the ship's pools every day, and you can see the need for emptying the water, scrubbing the pool, and re-filling it. Sea water is basically free. Fresh water via desalination costs money.

yes, the jubilee pool is very small. it has a slide. my son, who was 10 at the time we sailed, spent most of his time there. the pool was pretty much full of kids.
