As Sharon said, they *are* saltwater, but nothing NEAR as salty as the ocean. They have outdoor showers right by the pools so you can showers off when you come out.

Well, they are 'ocean water' so I don't see how you can say they aren't as salty? <VBG> What they do is fill them while offshore so as they get 'clean' ocean water. They also add some chemicals like clorine so as to help prevent disease. As others have said, freashwater are on Princess and Disney only. Truthfully, while I like freshwater, the saltwater pools are cleaner as they change them daily. You have a freshwater shower poolside so no problem rinsing off. Just remember to leave you bathing suit on! <>
That last post aggravated me so I am not going to waste my breath....well why not....after going in the pools and opening my eyes in the water, it doesn't sting as much or taste as salty and feel as sticky as swimming in ocean water because of the way the water is treated is all I meant by that.
